Shots from 2017

Hello everyone!

I was going through my hard drive and found some of these images from last year. One of the best things about living in Southern California is having the ability to visit beautiful places everyday. I love that I can take my camera with me and find beauty surrounding me on a daily basis.

Thank you so much for your support!


Hello! Update from 2018

Hello everyone!

I have started a new blog called Caffeinated California!

The purpose of the new blog is to mix writing with my photography.

The above is a little logo I made to attach to my images. This blog is turning into my primary photography portfolio. This means I will be updating more frequently and I may add some of my graphic design work as well.

I’m going to try and make Sunday and Monday nights photo drop days, so stay tuned for the next adventure!



I completely forgot about this blog, or the very interesting posts I made when I was 21. I might revise the blog and move forward with it, but I am contemplating what to switch the topic to.

If anyone one reads this and has a suggestion about a topic they would like to see me expand on, feel free to email me at or leave a comment below.

Thank you!


When Life Gives you Lemons

As of right now, it feels as though I’m being forced into some parallel universe that I can’t describe. For school, things are going great. For my love life? Things are going not so great. It’s like I’m receiving all this opportunities to make myself a better person but I’m being torn between my life and having a relationship in it. How does one explain that to someone they care about? 

He seems stagnant in life which he complains about then settles for. For every chance he has to change things and make things better it always goes back to the same choice, the same fight, the same reasons on why he hates his life. These things are all of his choosing but he sees it as the way the world is moving against him. I try to say that he could do this to make things better, or that to make things better, but there is always an excuse on why he can’t do the mentioned act. Usually not enough time, he has to support his mother and brothers, he has to take care of me, he has to do something. Anything. 

I’m starting to realize maybe I don’t want to be with a person like that. Maybe I want a person with the motivation and drive for a future. In my head, this relationship holds me down. How do you tell the person you care so much about that this is how you see life? A group of excuses bound together to stay in the same place. Isn’t there more to life than just being stagnant?
