Disney Beach Engagement


“I want to practice couples photography,” I told my friend Meredith.

I really had wanted to take more photos of people, after I had enjoyed doing a beach yoga photo shoot a few weeks prior.

However, there was an ulterior motive behind my photo shoot suggestion of going to the Grand Floridian on the first morning of Meredith and Jake’s Disney World vacation.

2017 runDisney Star Wars Half Marathon


Oops, I wrote this post last April and apparently forgot to publish it! Better late than never!

Inside the Butterfly House


People often ask me if the magic of Disney starts to wear off when I visit it so often. My answer is a resounding “no!” The various events throughout the year add so much variety, and 3 months wasn’t nearly enough time to enjoy all of the nature at Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival. I spent this spring pretending I was a nature photographer among the gardens, topiaries, and butterfly house at Epcot.
