welcome to the blog

As a Kansas City Portrait & Wedding Photographer…here is my story! It all started in the summer of 2007 when I was in high school at an engineering internship with my sister in Tulsa. I was on my lunch break when I got a call from my parents that they were traveling to Istanbul, Turkey. […]

In September of 2016, my husband and I got on a 26 hour flight and went on an adventure in Asia! Within our trip to Bali, we made a short stop at the Hong Kong airport and also visited Kuala Lumpur, as well as the Langkawi island in Malaysia! Phew, what a whirlwind! Here are a few photos […]

In my previous blog post, I shared my experience in Costa Maya, Mexico on our 2nd cruise abroad the Celebrity Eclipse. On the 3rd cruise day we arrived to Cozumel, Mexico! Cozumel is an island in the Caribbean Sea off the eastern cost of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, close to Playa Del Carmen. Before arriving to Cozumel, […]

Last December, my husband and I embarked on a short five day cruise upon the Celebrity Eclipse ship. The cruise port started in Miami and headed down to Costa Maya and Cozumel, Mexico. The Celebrity Eclipse cruise ship itself was beautifully decorated with high-end contemporary interior design. There was a freshly manicured lawn on the […]

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas! Need I say more? The water surrounding this island is simply perfect! On the last port of call on our Holland America cruise (See part 1 in Grand Turk, part 2 in San Juan, and part 3 in St.Thomas), we went to this privately owned deserted island, shaped like a crescent, which is […]

On the third port day of our cruise (see part 1 in Grand Turk and part 2 in Puerto Rico), we arrived to Charlotte Amalie in the island of St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands, also seen in my eyes as heaven on hearth! The Virgin Islands has been on the top of our […]

This is Part 2 of the Cruise Blogpost Series. See the first blog by clicking here. On the third day of our Holland America cruise, we went to San Juan, Puerto Rico. It was a rainy day that was gray in color as we arrived into the port, yet the bright colors of the buildings […]

My husband and I love to travel! When we started to think about our next vacation, we wanted something that would be fun and easy to plan. We had thought about going on a cruise for a while since cruises seem to have everything in one place! Cruises provide you with your lodging, unlimited open access […]

At the start of August, I had the opportunity to travel to Doha, Qatar and Amman, Jordan. I had been to Qatar last year and the blog post can be seen here. This was my first time in Amman, Jordan and to my surprise, I had a really good time! The weather in Jordan was hot during […]
