Behind the lens, I’m doing life with my best friend and husband Agustin. I’m blessed to be married to the most beautiful man I know!
Agustin, thank you for being my #1 fan, my model for any new idea that comes to mind, and business consultant.
You can follow his adorable adventures at @bestoftoby.
I’m a Colorado mountain girl falling in love with the PNW.
Red wine + cheese are my love language. goat cheese is my fave.
Whether it be a game night, wine date, or a dinner party - I love filling our home with our community.
The perfect chocolate chip cookie is with sea salt of course, served with a cold cup of milk (ideally in a mason jar).
Agustin and I have lived here in the PNW for almost 5 years! We have fallen in love with everything this place has to offer - from the beautiful mountains to the ocean and the culture and food scene that come along with the city of Seattle. We are a big fan, come visit!
Home. I grew up in the mountains of Colorado. When I'm in the mountains, I'm in my element. A piece of my heart will always back in Colorado and I'm so grateful to have many opportunities to go back home and see friends and family!
I studied abroad in Ecuador when I was 17 and lived there for a year and fell in love with the country! I met Agustin during my time in Ecuador, so now it is exciting that we get to go back every year to see family and friends.
In college, I studied abroad in Spain and lived in the incredible city of Granada.
While studying abroad - I took a 10 day backpacking trip with friends and knew I always wanted to go back with Agustin! In May 2017 - we celebrated 6 years of marriage with a trip to Italy! We explored Sienna, Milan, Lake Como, Cinque Terre and Florence! One of the best trips we have ever taken!
Agustin and I lived in Ghana for a year and a half when Agustin's job relocated us to Accra, Ghana. During my time abroad, I worked with a non-profit that fought against human trafficking.
I recently spent 3 weeks in Nakuru, Kenya on a documentary photography project for a NGO called Hope for Life Kenya. This organization is addressing the needs and working with kids that have been impacted by HIV AIDS. I went with a team from Wheaton Bible Church and had the privilege of documenting the stories and amazing impact that Hope for Life is having in their community in Kenya.
During the year we lived in Africa, Agustin and I visited our dear friends who live in Pretoria, South Africa and went on a Safari in Kruger National Park. More recently, my friend Juli Watt and I visited Pretoria again and we couldn't resist exploring Cape Town! Cape Town is now on my list of top 5 favorite cities in the world.
During the Spring of 2014, Agustin and I went to India for the first time to witness our dear friends’ wedding! India is an amazing place! A photographer’s dream! The colors, the food, the culture! The 4 day wedding was an experience of a lifetime!
I was born in Hong Kong and lived there until I was six years old before moving back to the United States.
Cambodia was the first trip Agustin and I ever went on together. We explored the ruins of Siem Reap and were captivated by that buzzing city!
One of the cleanest and most efficient countries I have visited. Agustin went to high school in Singapore and lived there after college during the time we were dating, so I flew out to visit and explore his second home.
During my time studying abroad in Spain, I took a trip to Morocco and went on a camel excursion through the Sahara! Still to this day - it is one of my most magical memories while traveling!
I love visiting Mexico! Culture, history, beaches, warmth, and such great food! What's not to love!
Agustin + I and close friends went on a camping trip to Glacier National Park - and it was one of the most incredible adventures!
So let's get out our calendars, pick a cute local spot and chat over some delicious wine and cheese! Seriously, let's be friends :-)
