MY FAVORITE PERSON

MY FAVORITE MUSIC
anything indie, worship + oldies
The Avett Brothers, The Lumineers, The Head and the Heart, Bethel, Maverick City Music, Neil Young, Don Mclean, Eagles, my friend: Party Cat, the list goes on and on...
MY FAVORITE TV SHOW
The office & gilmore girls
My current favs usually follow the trends/whatever is streaming #1 on Netflix. I used to watch The Office almost everyday, but since the show hasn't been on Netflix, I haven't watched it in forever, but it will always be my favorite show. :')
MY FAVORITE TYPE OF PHOTOGRAPHY
anything with kind people
Kind people are my kind of people and documenting photos for those kind souls are my fuel for creativity. I absolutely adore working with people and currently find that showcasing love in all its forms are my favorite kinds of photography.
MY FAVORITE PLACE ON EARTH
ithaca, new york
From Costa Rica to Aruba, to Europe and over to the west coast and the southern parts of the States, Ithaca, New York is my favorite place on earth. It's been my favorite since I was a child and is my favorite day trip place to go. It feels like home.
MY FAVORITE STARBIES ORDER
fall fav: pumpkin cream coldbrew
My favorite order changes season to season, but I def love a strong cup of coffee with a little bit of sweetness.
MY FAVORITE THRIFT SHOP
thrifty shopper in endwell, ny
Who doesn't love a good find? My favorite thrift store for clothing is def Style Encore or Vintageness in Vestal, NY. Sometimes when I need to practice creativity, I go to a thrift store to inspire a styled shoot!
MY FAVORITE FLOWER
all the flowers
How can I ever choose just one?! I will say I loveeee hydrangeas, peonies, ranunculas, bleeding hearts, lilacs and dahlias.
MY FAVORITE PHOTO SHOOT
in full bloom's content day 2021
Just a few months after I launched In Full Bloom Photography, I hosted my very own In Full Bloom content day for some close photography friends. Someday soon I hope to offer content days for the public!
MY FAVORITE CAMERA SET-UP
SIGMA ART 35MM 1.4 WITH NIKON Z5
I've come a long way from when I first started out with my D3500 and kit lens. I am so thankful for my first camera though, it's what built my business! So often it isn't so much about the gear as it is pushing yourself to understand lighting, comp, etc...
