Exploring Columbus: Chinese Lantern Festival

Hello ladies and gentlemen, I am back once again with my Exploring Columbus series and this showcase is of the Chinese Lantern Festival that was going on back in January. It took place at the Ohio Fair Grounds and was a showcase of Chinese culture and history. From the food to the clothing to the giant lights, it allowed me to get a glimpse into the past and see a piece of culture I traditionally don’t get to experience. I grew up loving history, and had a particularly affinity for Chinese culture and traditions. So enjoy the images I was able to capture and let me know what you think!

Exploring Columbus: Jeffery Mansion

     It has been a while since I have been on the blog. Its been an interesting time, but I'm trying to get more consistent with it. I still have been shooting, so here is a series that I did at Jeffery Mansion, as I continue to explore my home city and learn all about it.

     If anyone would like to set up an appointment or collaboration, let me know! I would love to be able to chat with you about it! 

Exploring Columbus: Darby Creek

    So I have made it a desire to start really exploring the city that I live in. While I have lived here my whole life, I think its high time I dig into it and see what I can find. Whether that be parks, the city, or simply around the corner. 

    I have decided to begin my adventure at the park that I grew up nearby. Darby Creek is a park I have been to countless times, so I might as well start there.

    Enjoy the photos!

Exploring the North

One of the most popular areas in Columbus is the Short North. You can really explore the shops and small boutiques, finding stuff that you didn't know you needed. You can stop off and enjoy some food or drinks at one of the many eateries, pubs, or bars as well. I was driving through and couldnt help but stop off and take some quick pictures. So enjoy!  

Praire Oaks Park

   Right Priorities are necessary for Right Perspectives

   Often times we get caught up in what we are doing, and not why we are doing it. So it is crucial to be able to take a step back and see things in a different light. Push yourself to not stay in the pit, but rather, to pull yourself out. 

   These pictures are from Praire Oak Park, in Columbus, Oh. I went around sunset and was able to capture some beautiful shots. Enjoy and if you want to do a shoot of any type or variety, reach out and let me know!

Kiwanis Riverway Park

     So they say, that sometimes you have to get lost to truly find yourself. So that is why I like to go adventuring. Because maybe I'll stumble upon something fantastic and beautiful out in nature, and in the process, might just find the same thing in myself.

      That being said, I went walking around Kiwanis Riverway Park in Dublin, OH to see what I could find. I want to start creating, both with people and with the nature that is already there. So these are a few glimpses into what I found. Hope you all enjoy.
