When you have a yogi friend, you take yoga pictures–it’s just a perk of the job. I got to hang out in the Missouri Botanical Gardens for an afternoon with the wonderful, absurdly bendy Vivian Lee and my sweet friend Mattie while they showed off how crazy flexible they both are! In contrast, I struggleContinue reading “Yoga in the Garden”
Public parks are among my favorite things. Plants and green spaces right in the middle of urban sprawl? Yes please. The Vondelpark in Amsterdam is MASSIVE: 120 acres of grass, water features, plants, and playgrounds, planted in an already beautiful capital city. Lacey and I got to hang out there for an afternoon, and weContinue reading “Lacey in Vondelpark”
My family is moving back to the U.S. this summer after six years of living in Germany, and I’ve been realizing how many places I HAVEN’T been yet, even though they’re super close. Although I’ve flown through the Amsterdam airport and everyone in my family has been, somehow I hadn’t actually “done” Amsterdam–until this summer!Continue reading “An Amsterdam Adventure”
My best friend and I spent a couple weeks traveling in Europe to celebrate our graduation in May, and we spent three days in Paris! It was her first visit to one of my favorite cities, and we had a blast cramming all of Paris into less than 72 hours. I still can’t believe howContinue reading “An Adventure in Paris!”

I’ve been dying to use some bright flowers to add depth and color to a portrait, and a good friend of mine and a conveniently placed rose patch gave me the perfect opportunity on an otherwise gray May day. Thanks for humoring me with this mini session, Jaime!
I LOVE having fresh flowers at home (it’s a side effect of having lived in Germany, I think–flowers are super cheap and abundant there), and Easter is a perfect excuse for me to fill our apartment with flowers. Spring is my second favorite season, and I’m celebrating even as I slowly drown in the last few projectsContinue reading “stop & smell the flowers”
