I love the ocean. I love the mountains. I love coffee. I love chocolate. I love Ayran. I love vegetables. I love Greek food. I love Nutella…and peanut butter…together. I love scarves, skinny jeans and boots. I love shorts, flipflops and sarongs. I am a bohemian I would like to think…eclectic in so many different ways.

I love to travel. I love Italy, Turkey, Morocco, Canada, of course, and so many more places I have visited and have yet to visit. 

I am passionate. I am sensitive. I am deep. I am thoughful. I am intuitive. I am confident. I am pensive. I am funny. I am beautiful. I am strong. I am determined.

I love airports. I love coffee shops. I love mountain villages. I love the beach. I love Fiats 500s and Vespas. I love postcards. I love silver jewelry. I love short hair. I love my iPhone.

I am a fighter. I am compassionate. I am an advocate. I am all of these and more.

Simply put, I love life. And with this same love, I choose to photograph people, places and situations around me.

Love. Travel. Life. This is me. In a nutshell.

Have a look around my site. I have some travel galleries and blog posts in the links at the top.  

I hope you enjoy what you see and are inspired to see more of our beautiful world. xx

Introducing...my book!

 After many years of travel and wanting to share something I love from them, I decided to put together this fine art photography book.

Pre-ordering for the first book “Doorways of the World” coming soon. 🙂

Smartphone Travel Photography || Overnight Workshops - July, August & September

The Griffiths - Family Lifestyle Session || Manila Photographer

Every once in a while I put on my Portrait Photographer hat, a hat I have hung up a long while back. But there are times I dust it off. These times, however, cannot be forseen or forced, I might add. It just has to “feel” right and all the right ingredients must come together. 

But when it does happen, it happens with really awesome people. And this family was one of those “awesome people”. You guys are THE awesome. :)

When in Bali... || Las Harum Coffee Plantation

If anyone knows me at ALL, they know my love for coffee. 

Even though I have had to cut back my cups-per-day for health reasons, the passion in which I drink the highly addictive legal stimulant remains. :)

When I was shooting in Bali, Indonesia earlier this year, I went to Las Harum - an organic coffee plantation on Bali. 

It was AMAZING.

They grow all their own herbs as well as teas and coffees right there..

And of course we had a coffee and tea tasting there in the middle of the rainforest..it was divine!

 They have two sweet little Luwak, or Civets - a feline animal that eats the coffee beans then poops them out and you get the most expensive, yet smoothest cup of coffee from those there poop beans. I highly recommend anyone who loves coffee to try…even if just for a treat. :)

When you are in Bali next, be sure to visit these guys - they don’t have a website, but they are known there. That makes them all the more awesome. :)

:: ONE SHOT :: Pura Tirta Empul, Tampaksiring, Bali

Pura Tirta Empul Tampaksiring Bali - One of the many Hindu temples in Bali. It is famous for its holy water, where a pond has a spring that gives out fresh water regularly - I saw the pond and the spring inside it - it was wild!

Here the followers, both locals and from abroad, line up to go through the many faucets of water for cleansing.
