This Blog is Going on Holidays

Yes! You read that well. This blog is going on holidays for the very first time. Honestly I have thought about this a few times. I have got the pros and cons in my head.

One Year of Portraits

Can't believe it has already been a year since I got into shooting portraits! In August 2017 I accidentally got into portrait photography.

Now I finally get that not everyone is glued to their phone waiting for the next message. I'm trying to not be … Continue reading I’m done with Messaging
