My name is Denise and this is my blog! I'm a photographer, passionate about empathy, creativity and breakfast burritos. Thanks for bringing your magic to my corner of the internet!
In November of 2018, I left my full time job to pursue photography full time. Every month since then I’ve blogged what I learned from the previous month. This is month 21. You get to define success. This is something I’ve heard over the last several years at various conferences and webinars, seminars and virtual meet ups. […]
Officially this style is called a hotel/motel keychain. I think of them as Summer Camp keychains though. Opening the door to your cabin in the woods after spending the day paddling around the lake. Which one do you see it as? I’m so excited to announce these guys are now on sale in the Click […]
Look what just hit the Click Bloom shop! I started collecting enamel pins about three years ago. It used to be that I would collect smashed pennies when I traveled but then I started seeing enamel pins and they were all so creative and expressive. Over time, they started to tell a story of all […]
In November of 2018, I left my full time job to pursue photography full time. Every month since then I’ve blogged what I learned from the previous month. This is month 20. “I don’t wanna work.” It was one of those days. I pulled the covers up over my head, only interested in drowning out the daylight […]
It’s been a while since I’ve posted any non-branding work but I couldn’t help sharing these sweet images from Baby Lennon’s 6 month session at Agritopia in Gilbert. With a 6 month old, you can never tell if the baby is going to be an angel with smiles for the camera, or a fussy bundle […]
In November of 2018, I left my full time job to pursue photography full time. Every month since then I’ve blogged what I learned from the previous month. This is month 19. I sat in my blue office chair, Leo happily dancing around my keyboard, his feet hitting the delete and esc keys at the most […]
In November of 2018, I left my full time job to pursue photography full time. Every month since then, I’ve blogged what I learned from the previous month. This is month 18. I asked my mom how old I was and while she didn’t remember, she did say, “Little enough that your feet didn’t reach the […]
So often, I hear people say something that makes me cringe when it comes to photography and photographers. It’s that “a good photographer should be able to make anything look great.” Maybe they’ve seen a wedding couple, standing next to a muddy rain puddle, a photographer laying flat on the ground and then a side […]
When I was still little, my Uncle gave me the most beautifully illustrated copy of Little Women and I’ve treasured it throughout the years. Little Women became my favorite book (and later my favorite movie). More than a few times through quarantine, I’ve felt like one of the March sisters, at home, finding new ways […]

Hey. Do you mind if I tell you a story? One you might not have heard. All the elements in your body were forged many many millions of years ago in the heart of a faraway star that exploded and died. That explosion scattered those elements across the desolations of deep space. After so, so many millions of years, these elements came together to form new stars and new planets. And on and on it went. The elements came together and burst apart, forming shoes and ships and sealing wax and cabbages and kings. Until, eventually, they came together to make you. You are unique in the universe. There is only one of you. And there will never be another.
