Hi! I'm DesirĂ©e! First and foremost, I am a photographer. Somehow I'm one of those lucky people that got to be what I wanted when I grow up. I was just a kid with a disposable camera... and well, here we are now! 

For over half of my life, photography has been the greatest source of joy, expression, and accomplishment I've experienced. I'm influenced most by nature, adventure, and the human condition to seek and form connections. 

Other than photography, I'm pretty into sunsets, my dogs, traveling to new places, visiting my favorite places, audiobooks, camping, and exceptionally good coffee.
