Happy #WorldPhotographyDay 📸
Although I don’t consider myself the greatest photographer, it has been nothing short of amazing to be apart of a wonderful community that is photographers. Everyone offers there own perspective, and sees things completely differently than the next. Which is why every image is different. Every single one. Imperfections & perfections make the art what it is. Find something that makes you happy. Find something that brings you joy. But also find something that challenges you. This is what photography is to me, a constant battle. But don’t ever let negative thoughts unmotivate you from getting to new heights. Live to inspire & to be inspired.
"They won't tell you fairytales of how girls are dangerous and still win. They will only tell you stories where girls are sweet and kind, and reject all sin. I guess to them it's a terrifying thought. A red riding hood who knew exactly what she was doing when she let the wild in."
- Nikita Gill
🗣I would love for you to get to know me better and that's why every 9 posts, I share something about myself. Life is about relationships, not about Instagram follower numbers. ⠀
It's my goal to inspire you to get outside more by sharing photos, videos and drone footage that I create on my adventures. ⠀
I create imagery for brands, friends, family, and I work on a fair share of personal projects. Creating and being outside is what gets me out of bed in the morning. ⠀
Follow along on my adventures online and get in touch if you would like to join me. < Link in Bio >⠀
Did you know you don’t have to go somewhere tropical to find these emerald green pools of water? Colorado has many such spots, you just have to work a bit to get to them. This one, though well known, can be particularly elusive. Well worth the early morning rise and uphill trek, however. After all, the good stuff doesn’t come easy!

Rocky Mountain High🌄
This weekend marks seven years of calling this beautiful state my home. Colorado stole my heart when I was 16 with braces, touring CU Boulder - not sure where the crazy adventure of college ahead would take me✨
Moving here has challenged me in more ways that I could have even imagined; built and molded me in to the individual I am today. Colorado has given me lifelong friends, the love of my life, and adventures that bring endless happiness and pure joy❤️💛💙
I have gained a new appreciation for nature, the outdoors and embracing this beautiful backyard of ours. I’ve learned memories > things. Oh and naturally, I have become quite the craft beer enthusiast 🍻😋
As many days, months and years I have spent here, I know this is only the beginning of something amazing. Cheers to 70 more. P.S. happy Friday all, we made it🎉
I thought I ordered a non-smoking hike? So much smoke and haze out there. This was an early morning on Mt Antero a couple weeks ago, and the smoke was obvious in my photos, but it has only increased with so many fires in the West. We love summers, but the fire season is no bueno!
I can't wait for fall for a lot of reasons. Pumpkin spice lattes, crisp mornings, adding sweaters back into rotation. But mostly those perfect, robin's egg blue skies I've always taken for granted. It's been such a hazy summer, my heart hurts every time I look through a layer of smoke and smog at the mountains. Bring on the blue sky days!
