2020.... What a rollercoaster!
Well, this year is finally drawing to a close, and I know everyone has been THROUGH it in some way. I wanted to send one final blog post for the year and wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season. I also wanted to recap
How is it a new year and a new decade?! Welcome to 2020, everyone! I spent my second holiday season in a row in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. It's so hard being away from family and friends in America, but I filled my schedule with lots of photoshoots, petsitting for multiple families, and
Hello Again, Vietnam...
It feels surreal to type this, but my six months in America is over already! It feels like I just got here, and that I JUST left Vietnam! So crazy, but I'm currently en route back to Ho Chi Minh City for another amazing

Summertime in the States!
I've been back in America for a little over a month already! How time goes by so fast is completely beyond me. I've already spent time in Wilmington, NC; Richmond, VA; and

Vietnam, Round Two!
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
Fall Fairyland in Upstate New York
For those of you who don't know, I was born and raised in Syracuse, New York until the age of 11. My parents have an insane amount of siblings and cousins that mostly still live in the surrounding areas of upstate New York, and we would go up at least once or twice a year after we moved for holidays and vacations in the summer. My parents have an old cabin
And that's a wrap, folks! I honestly cannot believe September is about to be over. Where has 2018 gone?!??! It's basically Halloween, which is practically Christmas. So realistically, it's already 2019, and I cannot even handle it.
