Sorry Buffalo, I'm a Vikings girl today 😆

I am stoked to represent Buffalo, NY for the Minnesota Vikings Instagram Group (VIG). The goal of the VIG is to showcase the most unique qualities of the team's road game stops through the use of photography.

Hey photographer friends! I'm selling my Nikon 50mm AF-S 1.8 G lens for $140. It's in great condition. I am only selling because I have 2 copies of this lens and really don't need both.

If you have any questions about this lens or camera compatibility - send me a DM. Tag a photo nerd who might be interested!

I don't think I could have picked a better morning to catch sunrise at Tifft Nature Preserve.

Last week I shared a table with fellow social media content creators at The Black Sheep to learn more about Dining Out for Life WNY. DOFL is an annual dining fundraiser event raising money for AIDS service organizations. Thank you to Rachel and Billy for your hard work!

This year's dining out event takes place on October 10, 2017 and Evergreen Health is still recruiting restaurants until August 9, 2017.

Thank you to the Gedras for your kindness and hospitality!

It's typical (and predictable) for me to want to add a pop of color to a background that is either black or white but I wanted to pay homage to Shantell's piece and keep it black + white.

One of the reasons I picked up a camera was to document the impermanence of Buffalo street art. I realize now that it was part of the culture (not lasting forever). Still, I wanted to preserve the walls in time as they would eventually be weathered by the elements, defaced, or painted over.

One of my favorite things in this lifetime is street art and its positive impact on communities. Discovering a piece and soaking it in for the first time is one of my favorite experiences and always will be. Public art is so powerful, accessible, and beautiful.

"The people who truly deface our neighborhoods are the companies that scrawl giant slogans across buildings and buses trying to make us feel inadequate unless we buy their stuff. They expect to be able to shout their message in your face from every available surface but you're never allowed to answer back. Well, they started the fight and the wall is the weapon of choice to hit them back."

The Martin House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. I love how FLW honors and accommodates the natural light in his structures.

The Curtiss Hotel and its beautiful exterior rainbow light display during #BuffaloPride!

For my fellow slow shutter nerds, I find that 1.3 seconds is my favorite shutter speed to use on traffic trails. It gives me the perfect length of motion blur in the frame.
