a few photos of me, my adorable husband, and our adventures:

about between two pines

I’ve always been inspired by John Muir and particularly his famous quote, “Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world”. With the pine tree, known for standing tall and steadfast through the seasons and harsh winters, with deep roots and evergreen leaves – and the forest, for growth and longevity, decay and rebirth; it’s a perfect metaphor for the commitment of marriage and growing old together.

I’ve been photographing people and places since I was little, but I took a little break when I decided to study music in college. After graduating, my love Will and I took a 50-day road trip around the US, conquering 12,000 miles, 25 states, 21 national parks, 1 hailstorm, 122 degree heat, and 1 EPIC proposal at the Grand Canyon.

Through that life-changing trip and a lot of soul-searching, I began to rekindle my old love for photography – and thus begun Between Two Pines, a travel blog and home for my road trip photos. That fire ran wild, and now it’s grown into the adventurous photography brand it is today – and now, I can’t imagine doing anything else.
