Hi, I'm Calli!

I love pizza, people, the ocean, chacos, sunsets, hiking, binge watching Netflix, sewing, laughing, French fries, success, infinite moments, giving, traveling, gardening, walking barefoot, podcasts, photography, serving others, and cuddling on Sunday mornings! This list is far from comprehensive, but it’s a good start!


Want to know more? I’m an open book!

I don't do my hair (if I do it's a special occasion) and I've had the same make up palatte since I was 15 (yes, the EXACT same one and I've only ever used it) because I just don't wear it. I wouldn't call myself a minimalist (that just sounds too hippy dippy for me) but things don't make me happy. I'd rather spend a week in Hawaii than follow fashion trends. The small things in life make me happy, and I'm content with just my husband and camera!

I met my cutie husband Matt the first week of my freshman year. We were next door neighbors (our doors were literally 7 steps apart...I counted) and instant best friends! We were together NON STOP, and eventually we just sort of started dating. We got married in the middle of Sophomore year, and we're basically pros at marriage. We love to travel, snowboard, and watch The Office until we fall asleep on our couch!!

I picked up my first camera when I was 18, mostly because all of my friends were "photographers". I loved learning everything I could, and I spent every waking minute soaking in information! My career as a photographer just sort of happened! Within 6 months photography was my full time job. I love the journey it's taken me on, and the people it's allowed me to meet! I don't really have plans for it yet, it has a mind of it's own. I'm just along for the ride! 

I am addicted to traveling! I cannot get enough of the thrill of a new adventure. I'm a little more adventurous when it comes to travel than anything else; I bought our tickets to Costa Rica without event telling Matthew! And if I could, I would travel full time (currently scheming a way to do this). It makes me feel alive, and it teaches me things my texts books never did. I constantly have at least 5 dream trips planned out in my head, and I know the running cost of round trip tickets to just about anywhere ;). My inbox is FULL of flight alerts and travel subscriptions....I wasn't kidding when I called it an addiction! 

I live by the quote "If what you did yesterday still looks big, you haven't done much today." Every day is a chance to do something new and make big changes to your life! Just go out there and get to it! I strive for this every day except for the ones where I lay on the couch and peruse Instagram for hours on end; those days I'm lucky if I get dressed. BUT the other days; those are the ones where I aim to live by this inspiring quote!
