Well, Christmas has come and gone. It was my first time being overseas and away from my family during the holiday season. Can't say I particularly enjoyed it, to be honest. I knew it would be difficult, but even with FaceTime and WiFi, it just wasn't enough. I will probably do everything in my ability to be with family in the future during the holiday season. However, being in the city of expats,
I'm back!! This is the first time through all my years of traveling, working, and living abroad that I've gone back to a country that I already resided in (except for America, where I grew up and lived for most of my life). I was in Vietnam for over seven months
For those of you who don't know, I was born and raised in Syracuse, New York until the age of 11.

I have been in Vietnam for six months today. FYI, that sentence makes me so happy! It, of course, feels half like I've been here for much longer than that and half like I've just arrived. Six months is a
As a freelance photographer, I work with a lot of families and youngsters capturing portraits and family group photos... And kids can be finicky. As you are all very well aware. Any little thing can turn your angelic munchkin
One of the main reasons I was so interested in living and working in Saigon, Vietnam in particular, was because of the expat community that lives here. I love capturing images
Well, five months in to living in Vietnam, and I've been experiencing a few more downs than ups lately. I suppose you can say my "honeymoon phase" has started to fade. It's all a part of life in general, of course. There are bound to be issues and things that happen. It just seems like
