Photography.

For as long as I can remember I have always had a camera closeby. I can fondly think back on opening up a birthday gift before a New Year's party back in high school. My parents sat me down and watched me eagerly open up a brand new pink Canon Powershot. I probably cried out of sheer excitement and awe. It was my companion for many years to come. 


I've had several other point-and-shoot style cameras in my hands, and I have dabbled with the odd DSLR; both Canon and Nikon series. I have found myself taken to the Samsung Galaxy Note series phones in more recent years, and these phones have served as my primary camera as of 2014. 


This year, marking nearly ten years after my PowerShot, my holidays were blessed once again with the gift of a camera. In front of family and some furry friends I opened up a well concealed gift and revealed a brand new (to me!) Nikon D5100. It was so unexpected and unforseen, I was completely overcome with emotion. 


In this next year I hope to do well by my new camera, and hold myself accountable for a more fluid and and consistent presence in photography. My Instagram profile is of course my primary source of content when it comes to photos and my travel, but I want to bring this website to life and share with the world my other interests that you'll find on the other pages. 


Thank you for following along, and cheers to a warm welcome into photography.
