"Out by the Western Coast --

a recently graduated 20-something, a one-way ticket, dad's old film camera, and the life-giving joy of falling in love with wonder."


This holiday season, Blurb helped me to bring my vision to life of creating a photo book of some of my favorite film photographs I have taken while living in California. This place has grown to mean so much to me since moving here in May -- love, passion, and creativity brought me to pack up all my things and move from a tiny town in the midwest to a place where I set out to follow my dreams. If you’d like to purchase my book or see a preview of the inside of my creation, check it out by clicking here!


It definitely hasn't been an easy road, but one day I know I will look back on this part of my life and feel an overwhelming sense of nostalgia for the people and places who helped me along the way to my aspirations: because I imagine that when I look back at this time of my life, I'll be thankful for all the little things that have made up these every-days: and I wanted a book to capture that.


If you’d like to create your own photo book this holiday season, click here to check out all of Blurb’s amazing options for customizing your own work of art. Blurb is an independent, creative book-making and self-publishing platform. They make it so easy for anyone to create photo books and magazines in print and digital formats. For those of you who are well-versed in design, you can also use Blurb’s Adobe® InDesign® plug-in or Lightroom® integration for even more creative control over your book. My Imagewrap Hardcover, large square 12×12 in book was created with Blurb's plug-in for Adobe® InDesign®. I also absolutely loved the amazing paper quality of the Premium Matte, which was the perfect choice to compliment my film photos. As soon as I received my book, I was in awe of the incredible quality, and loved flipping through the pages. I cannot wait to order another one.

Happy holidays dreamers!
