Putting In the Work . . . Works

Since it’s almost the end of the year I thought I’d take stock in how productive my 2017 has been. Most of my creative energy was spent on The Nut-Free Vegan, a blog I started back in February to [...]



In an effort to share my photography beyond those who see it now, I’ve opened an Etsy store where I’m selling prints of photos I’ve taken over the past three years. It’s a [...]


My 2017 To-Do List

Now that 2016 is behind us, I’m ready to take on this new year with drive and a lot of gusto. Last year was really great for me, and I think 2017 can be even better. With that in mind, [...]


Posting Your Passion on Instagram

For about the past year or so, I've been working hard at my photography. For a while—before an overabundance of work got in the way—I was shooting everyday. I've been taking online workshops [...]


My Year That Was

I don’t think I’ve ever written something to sum up a year in my life before, and I feel like I kind of abandoned this blog a few months back. But now that it’s officially 2012, [...]
