How it all began...
I picked up a camera for the first time when I was 13 years old, and that next year I started high school and joined our school's photography club. Over those next four years I realized that photography wasn't just a hobby for me, but a calling on my life. I spent most evenings in by backyard with a tripod taking creative self portraits to share on Flickr. When I got a million views on my photos, I thought to myself, "maybe I should really pursue this!"
Fast forward to college and I got accepted to an Entrepreneurship program, where I decided to start a wedding photography business which I still run today. Two weeks after graduation, I hopped on plane a to Europe to go backpacking with one of my best friends, and I was officially bit by the travel bug. That's what sparked me
to start a travel blog (which back in the day was called The Sunny Traveler) and show people how to travel on a budget. A few years later I married my husband, Marco, who is my partner in life and business! Since we got married we've done van life in San Francisco (hated it) and lived as expats in Mexico City for two years which has been our greatest adventure yet.
Often the guy behind the camera when you see photos of me! He joined the team 3 years ago when we got married and has been in love with photography ever since. He is all about SEO and the numbers, but his greatest passion is travel (hence why we're together!) So when you write us an email or DM, make sure to say hello to him, too!
Aka our Mexican rescue pup (yep, we got him in Mexico!) He is a very important member of the team and gives us lots of cuddles and licks during work breaks. We've traveled with him all over Mexico and you're sure to see him in our Instagram stories. And yes, he's bilingual!
I'm a travel photographer, educator, and environmental advocate here to help you turn your passion into a career and help you find freedom in life + business.
