I enjoy kayaking, biking, swimming, hiking, and basically just being outdoors as much as is humanly possible!

Starting a family with my best friend, staying up late at night talking about deep things with my kids and adding a puppy to our family–backyard campfires, cooking together, watching the seasons change…



I absolutely love to travel and we travel often as a family.  We have a map in our dining room with push pins of all of the places we have been!  A few highlights in the US include: Joshua Tree, NYC, Crater Lake, Boston, Outer banks, Seattle, Harper’s Ferry, Boston, Key West & San Fransico.  The photo is from one of my favorite modes of transportation– sailboats! 


I read about a book a month & spent years working as a children’s librarian at our local library, photography was my side hustle. When I left the library to pursue photography full-time, they dedicated the children’s collection of library books in my honor! I love museums, play pub trivia with my friends & enjoy board games with my husband– my latest obsession is Wingspan.


We live in a historic home adjacent to the Shippensburg University campus.  There are 20 lakes and hundreds of hiking trails within an hour drive of my home in Shippensburg, PA.  There are several local colleges nearby so there are some great options in terms of food, art, entertainment here.  We love taking day trips to all of the places nearby—we are roughly 2 hours from Washington DC and Baltimore, 3 hours from Philadelphia and Pittsburgh and 4 hours from New York City.
