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!
This is usually a conversation I reserve for my closest friends. The ones who won’t go running when I tell them that Atlas Shrugged is one of my favorite books. Instead they just snarl and say “WHY?” Guys, I know this book is associated with horrible things like capitalism, Paul Ryan, and egotism… but I […]
Have you heard about this book? I bet you have, it’s like, ALL ANYONE IS TALKING ABOUT. But really, this book keeps popping up everywhere and now that I’ve read it, I see why. Rachel Hollis is hilarious and refreshing as she isn’t afraid to share with us her deepest imperfections. The chapter that I […]
I sat in the United breakout session given by Charity Maurer where she said, “Luxury isn’t more, it’s just better. It’s less but much better.” I almost shouted an AMEN but then remembered I was supposed to be there learning to be more luxurious and somehow, shouting like I was at a town meeting in […]
I looooove musical theater. And when I got to Junior High, I signed up for choir IMMEDIATELY. It was the first thing I did. Not being naturally gifted in music, I slowly clawed my way to the top choir by ninth grade. Then I started over in High School. I came in at the bottom […]
Right before leaving my day job, I was lucky enough to read two books that straight up changed my life. This was one of them. The other one you can read about here. Author Mark Manson does a wonderful job of bringing to your attention just how ridiculous we are as human beings. We pour […]
It was around thirty that I really started caring about money. Not just how to pay the bills but what I was actually doing with my money, where it was going, and how much I would need when I couldn’t work anymore. I noticed this happens to a lot of thirty year olds as well. […]
Welcome to day 26 in my 100 posts for photographers in 100 days! I first heard about this book at Showit United, a conference for photographers here in Arizona. I started reading the book right when I got home and I was hooked. Some self help books speak to me and some definitely don’t. This […]
Can I share something really personal with you? I am recovering from being an extremely negative person. Up until very recently, I felt most comfortable when I was complaining about something, most confident when I had some other force working against me that I could blame my failures or shortcomings on. I saw the bad […]

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.
