On the outside I'm just an average, plain gal.
On the inside I daydream about love stories, and cottage-core tea parties, and old greenhouses covered in vines. I listen to indie-folk and acoustic covers (with the occasional 90's + today's hits).
I'm a romantic at heart.
While my business opened up in 2021, my love for photography has been going on for years. I used to scour Instagram and find artists whose work would catch my eye. The type of photos that seem to attract me most are those that convey emotion. But beyond that, I’ve found occasionally adding motion blur, some grain for that film-like look, and adding airy elements really elevates those emotions to me. Because of that, you’ll find a lot of those elements in my work.

I met my husband in high school while our parents were stationed in Germany. Starting out as mere acquaintances, we reconnected while I was in college and started dating my senior year. We have been married for almost ten years, and have two beautiful kiddos - Hailey (8) and Matty (5)!
I was commissioned back in 2009 and served in the Army as an ordnance officer for four years.
I was stationed at Fort Hood, TX for the majority of my time in service with a short 6-month deployment to Iraq in 2011.
MORNING ME TIME -
Coffee with a splash of cream, paired with a sweet treat.
Lavender lemon scones.
...is my jam. I do tend to like all kinds, but there's something about this genre that is the most "me". The soothing artistry about it I just love.

I am half Korean, and I'm doing my part in spreading the word that Korean food is amazing! Check out H-Mart's food courts! Kang Nam town is my usual go-to.
Things to try:
Bean Paste Soup (may be an acquired taste)
Hot Stone (it's the same as Bibimbop, but the hot stone makes the botton rice layer crispy. *drool*)
