I’m Desirée, and there are a few things you should know about me:
I have developed a love for photography over many years. You can question my younger sister about the countless times I made her model for me. There are many things that I love about photography. I love photographing other people, making them smile, and making them feel beautiful. I love putting time & thought into each photo I edit, making sure the end result is perfect. I love taking photos of my life and looking back on the memories with my loved ones. I love how photographs are just 1 snippet of a second, yet can evoke so much emotion. This is why I decided to re-launch my blog with a bigger focus on photography! I’ve had many people ask me if I had a page for my photography that they could look at, and this will be just that! A one-stop shop to view my portfolio, my most recent work, blog-posts centered around my photography but varying in topic, and the ability to contact me directly. Whether you want to book a session with me, work with me, read my posts, or just chit-chat, you can do it all right here!

Cooking has become one of my favorite things to do in my free time. I love to try new recipes, and even make up my own! If you have an amazing recipe, please send it my way!

Living a healthy lifestyle is very important to me. While I am definitely not a poster child for healthy living, I do take the time to learn about ways to enhance my life. Some times I may find myself straying from my good habits. Then I start getting migraines regularly and am reminded why I live my life the way I do!

I have an amazing boyfriend of 4+ years named Jake. We love to travel, watch The Office & The X-Files, go on walks, and most recently our time has been eaten up by our house renovation, but we wouldn’t have it any  other way. Oh, and we have a little dog named Teddy. He’s practically perfect.

My other hobbies include but are not limited to:
Learning how to code
Teaching myself new photo-editing & graphic design techniques
Watching Netflix (New Girl, The Office, Scandal, House of Cards, the list goes on…)
Reading (Currently reading: The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg)
Working a full-time job in healthcare
Going to school for business administration
Blogging here, for myself & you!
