When Porter first asked me to be his girlfriend, he went in for the hug & my awkward, 14 year old self misread the situation & gave him a high five 😬🤗 I was mortified & prayed he would forget about it, but he brings it up alllll the time. Like, every major life step I have to hear, “should we high five now?”🙄 Jokes on him though, he married me anyway 🤗

We are sooo not ready to have a puppy just yet, but I swear all week it’s been all we can talk about 🙄 if you have a cute pup & live in Boston, please don’t walk by me during this difficult time 🐶🙈🙏🏼

My greatest advice to anyone wanting to pursue Instagram as their main career would be this: don’t ✨ instead, find a passion that can be profitable both on & off this platform ✨ photography is the obvious one, but over the course of our travels the happiest “instagrammers” I came across were always those whose career outside this realm allowed them to be selective when it came to choosing profitable opportunities within it ✨ whether it was blogging, graphic design, modeling, working remotely, or even tech, I always found that those who didn’t have to rely solely on this platform for earnings seemed more empowered, stable, happy, & in control ✨ working on a blog post that will go more in depth on why we feel this way for later on this week ✨ #exploretocreate #livetoexplore

For those of you who might not know, off of this platform my husband Porter & I both make a living as photographers ✨ I’ve spent the past few days putting together a blog post on how to ACTUALLY become a professional photographer without a lot of money or experience ✨if you’d asked me two years ago if I thought I’d have the chance to work with & shoot for clients in over 17 countries I would’ve said no way, but the funny thing is that the technical steps it took to get there weren’t as complicated as you’d think....As with most things in this life, how bad you want it always seems to infinitely outweigh how impossible it might seem✨ (link in bio✨)

Spending today like this👆🏼but a whole lot closer to home ✨ the grill is fired up, the swimsuits are on, the ocean is strangely warm, & neighbors are stopping by at all hours ✨ traveling is great and all, but Fourth of July weekend & summer in New England is tough to beat 🇺🇸✨

I shared a blog post this morning on the top 5 bucket list places we think you should skip & why (& where to go instead) ✨ Instagram so often makes traveling any & everywhere look like a fantasy, but the truth is that some places aren’t what they’re chalked up to be or disappoint you or make you feel unsafe & this platform should be sharing those stories, too, especially when they can effect other people’s travel decisions ✨ & on the flip side, there are so many places that don’t get enough hype, like my favorite underrated city in the world: Athens 👆🏼 (a place we suggested to head to instead of Dubrovnik)✨ hope you’ll have a read & maybe not feel like you can’t speak up the next time you reach a place that isn’t what you thought it’d be ✨

Top Travel Moment 5 of 5: Maybe it’s because we’re both 50% Italian, or maybe it’s because I grew up reading so many storybooks set in this city, but the magic of Venice totally overwhelmed us...Magic is such an overused word nowadays, but the mix of mystery & timelessness & beauty hanging in the air there at all times of year & all times of day or night is exactly that: pure, untainted magic.✨ The way the light plays on the canals has this holiness about it that’s hard to describe ✨ It’s the kind of place I could go back to one thousand times & never get sick of & it served as the backdrop of my favorite mornings spent shooting with Port this past year ✨📸

Top Travel Moment 4 of 5: I don’t usually show my face on here, but this photo brings me back to one of my very favorite moments from Bali: the morning we woke up at 3 am from jet lag and spent swimming & eating dragon fruit, waiting for the plane to land with a couple of our friends ✨ you don’t realize until you’re traveling full time how much you’ll miss the normalcy of spending time in the company of the people you love, & this was the very first day of our travels that people we knew were headed our way ✨🙌🏼 honestly, it felt like Christmas ✨

Top Travel Moment 3 of 5: the day we spent hiking through Morocco’s Ourika Valley 🇲🇦 never in my life have I seen earth this red ✨ we went home with tinted hands & clothes & sneakers & faces & it was absolutely worth it ✨ the biggest surprise of Morocco was how freezing it would be at night & in the mornings, even though it would be 90 by noon 🤔🙃

Top Travel Moment 2 of 5 : The mornings we spent cliff jumping & swimming in the south of Crete, right by the southern most tip of Europe ✨ When Porter took this, I’d just been scared out of the water by the biggest sea turtle I’ve ever seen 🐢 We stayed for a week & started every morning right here: dipping in & out of the ocean & sipping some crazy strong Greek coffee✨🇬🇷
