the usa through binoculars // travel photography

When Tom and I began our drive across the country in January, we found a small pair of binoculars in the car. I shot 11 photos through them with my iPhone over the week. Here’s a small, unique taste of our trip (full blog post coming soon).

winter in the west, part i // l.a. birdie photography

I spent this Christmas and part of January in the state of Washington. I stayed with Tom’s family, at his brother’s house. Six of them, two roommates who are like family, and me. I normally feel quite sad during January (my university doesn’t start back up until nearly February) since it’s so gloomy and cold and I don’t know what to do with myself, but this winter was the best of my life.


there are many things that I am constantly learning, but the ones that come to mind when I think about this trip are: how to eat healthier, be okay with resting in large quantities, get lost in a crowd, adventure more spontaneously, and to be more okay with who I am. I could go on, but I’d rather tell you in person and then keep the rest of my thoughts in my brain + journal 😉


there are mountains, waterfalls, cats, dogs, sunshine, fog, music, early mornings, late nights, christmas, family. this is a lot of photos. it’s a little life in tacoma, washington. skip through them slowly or quickly. they are just a glimpse of my winter in the west. park ii coming soon! (tom took a few  – the ones that I’m in and a few of the adorable fluffy soft cuddly animals!)

This post happened at the beginning of the trip – adventures in point defiance park – then the rest.

afternoon tea + chocolate // L.A. Birdie Photography

I’ve been wanting to try out more food + product photography more lately! A couple days ago when the warmth of the sun finally broke through the wind, I took a few shots of tea, apples, honey, and chocolate, all of which make me think of springtime. baltimore product food photography-1 baltimore product food photography-2 baltimore product food photography-3 baltimore product food photography-4 baltimore product food photography-5 baltimore product food photography-6
