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 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 […]
Every morning I write my daily to do list on a notepad from Rifle Paper. I figure if the list is cuter, I’m more likely to refer to it throughout the day. #logic At the end of January I decided to, for the first time ever, make a month long to do list. I wrote […]
If you missed day 1, click here! If you missed day 2, click here! I sat at my office desk in 2014 pouring over notes I had filled my notebook with after a two day workshop for photographers. I was determined that the $1,200 I had spent would not go to waste and I was […]
Did you miss day one? Click here to catch up! In the third century BC, the King of Syracuse is suspicious that his new crown is not made of pure gold. So he calls the Scientist Archimedes to test the new crown for purity. Archimedes is stumped. He has no idea how to test for […]
It’s crowded in here. This world of solopreneurs and dreamers wanting to make their mark. This world of Etsy shops and pop up’s and influencers and highlight reels. It can get loud. It can get intimidating. It can make a person doubt themselves at every turn. From my own personal experience, when I doubt myself, […]
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 15. Do you ever get selective hearing? Maybe you’re reading a book and nodding along with the author until she says something you don’t […]
I sat in my home office, papers and various office supplies in piles all around me. Cans of opened Coke Zero, scraps of papers with half formed ideas scribbled in barely legible handwriting, memory cards scattered around my desk and a to do list reading: •Find Clients •Make Money •Sell Stuff In other words: I […]
Oh hey! New Year, New Freebie!! Over the last year I’ve become a total Brene Brown cheerleader. Have you gotten into her? She’s kind of incredible. The first book I read of hers was last year and it was Braving The Wilderness and I can’t tell you what an amazing impact this book made. So […]
I always love it when people say they practice yoga. Or they practice meditation. There’s a certain humility to the word practice. It insinuates a journey towards a level of proficiency that is earned over time with effort. It implies that you start out as a beginner, you’re not very good at it, and then […]

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.
