I’ve always had a voracious appetite for photography. Growing up, I would sit for hours devouring my dad’s collection of National Geographic issues. As I got older, I experimented with photography in the most basic way I could – with disposable cameras. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I actually purchased my first proper professional camera.
I didn’t know much about the ins and outs of photography but I was eager to learn. I spent every weekend roaming the City looking for hidden gems; looking to capture moments of time that I didn’t want to forget. When I started my blog in 2012, I had no intention of having my photography seen anywhere outside of the radius of my Facebook friend group. It’s wild to see how photography has deeply rooted itself in my everyday life.
I love that ice breaker question, “If your house was on fire and you could only save one thing, what would it be?” … I’d honestly have to say my camera. Few other personal items in my life have had greater effect or brought more joy than my Nikon.
For this apt look, I paired my new EXPRESS drawstring Photographer Pant with some of my favorite basics and a striped knit tie. I love the fact that these dress pants can transition so easily between work and play – loosen that work-appropriate tie and pop on a sweater for happy hour drinks! See more options here.
