Time in a Finite Resource

Time is finite. You always think there will be more of it. That you'll have one more chance to visit your favorite restaurant. To wear that dress you love (before it doesn't fit again).

Another Spin Around the Sun

Another Spin Around the Sun

It was my birthday in August, and with it, I am squarely in my mid-30s now. In some ways, I feel very old (hello, TikTok stars, how are you all such babies?!) and in other ways, I feel like just gotten to a point in my life where I feel aware of who I am. I am more confident in making decisions...

In this Moment // July 2021

A couple weeks ago, I went on a retreat in Austria, a small weekend in a little house with eight other women.

Letting Go and Going Forward

Our lives are defined by a series of moments. A flip book of little snapshots that make up a whole life. Blink and the years fly by. That's why I became a photographer.

July + August — PNW Summer

July + August — PNW Summer

I feel like this summer just flew past us. Maybe it's because we skipped fall and with the snow (snow!) last weekend, I feel like I should be getting ready for Christmas instead of Halloween. Ahhh! July and August were good. July was super super busy, and I helped organize a huge event for my...

Prague on Film

As many of you know, I'm a native American who has lived abroad. I lived in the Czech Republic twice as a student, and married a German. Our lives are this incredible mix of Germany and American and Czechia. A hodge podge of cobblestone streets, castles, wide open spaces, mountains, bikes, and...
