Seattle 06.19-20.2017

Since leaving the evergreen state in November of 2016, I haven't stopped dreaming of the foggy mornings or towering pines. I am so to be back in the state I hold so near and dear to my heart. In November, my travel partners and I spent the majority of our short trip on the far North Western Coast. This June, I'll be spending my week in downtown Seattle, soaking in every cozy corner and coffee shop I can find before heading back to Kentucky.

With this trip, I'm vowing to push myself creatively -- to quit taking photographs to please the world or my instagram followers; to start attempting to capture what my world feels like; to pursue a greater possibility; to pursue my passions and to try with all my might to inspire others. Here's some photos from my first 24 hours in the emerald city -- flying in, exploring the streets, visiting the aquarium, and the most delicious french toast I've ever tasted.

whoop whoop because first blog post on the new website!!

I am so thankful to share this little place of thoughts, photos, music, and just more of my soul with all of you!

today on the blog, I'm sharing some photos I took a few weeks ago with a friend, model, and true kingdom warrior (@itsjonwebster) . these photos struck a chord in me I don't often get to express. don't get me wrong i loveee my commercial work and the clients and couples i get to work with, but when it comes to freelance art, i find a very hard time crossing the two of those since i see photography as such an opportunity to bring my own visions and heart into the tangible world. 

this shoot with jon, a pal who is equally as passionate about the quirky and non-traditional art forms, really helped me understand that my visions can become a reality

that my heart is perfect in all of its imperfections 

that my hurt has purpose

and that my calling to be an artist is one of unique and true intent

hope you guys love these photos as much as I loved creating them!

also, something i so desparately want to incorporate into these posts (which I'm hoping to make a weekly thing) is to share with you all what I'm listening to this week! if you guys have any ideas (like making Spotify or YouTube playlists of my week) that i could share with you guys, please let me know! for now, I'll just be posting the songs and links to Spotify!
