Harrah's Resort Southern California, September 2017. In successful relationships there must be compromise. My compromise was attending a mock 80's hairband concert. His was allowing me time the following morning to take in the views and this portrait in the hotel hallway. The view behind the camera was of the Southern California desert.

Reflections, The Broad, Los Angeles, California, October 2018. Greg, whose favorite subject is calculus, is not so artistically inclined while I find myself easily engrossed in the arts and terrible at math. Where some may find this difference in interests can be divisive, when approached with open minds, we find it gives our relationship a healthy balance.

Van life, Moab, Utah, 2018. In the third year of our marriage and fifth year of our relationship, we are no longer in the "honeymoon" phase. It takes effort to keep our relationship healthy and thriving. One thing we always make time for is an adventure together. On this particular adventure, we rented a camper van and toured several National Parks throughout Southern California, Utah, and Arizona. One of the things we are both passionate about is nature and the environment.
