Personal Post |25 Things You Never Wanted to Know About Me|

Many of the photographers I follow religiously are generous in the sharing of their personal lives. I love it, because I have learned so much from them professionally and love to ‘get to know them’ via their blogs, Facebooks, etc. Some call that stalkerish. I call it interested.

I find that the photographers I absolutely <3 are forthcoming and giving of themselves – of what they have learned, what they suggest, and who they are. I love it.

And, well, maybe it’s time I followed in the footsteps of some of my favorites (which I’ll talk about more in another post, promise!) and share a little bit about myself.

Soooooo, 25 things you never wanted to know about me. And. You’re welcome.

1) I grew up in a small town in the Berkshires and wouldn’t change that experience for anything. There’s something special about the place you are from, especially when that’s Small Town, USA.

2) I’ve been skiing since age 4 and spent most of my childhood racing on a downhill ski team. I’ve always had a need for speed. Still do. I’ve since learned to snowboard and have taken up telemark skiing. I’m obsessed. Any free weekends in the winter you can find me on a mountain.

3) Cape Cod is one of my favorite places in the entire world.

4) My siblings are badass. I love them so much and am so grateful to have such close knit relationships with them. They are also hilarious. Which they get from me.

5) Halloween is my favorite holiday. I take it as a personal challenge to have an amazing costume for the party we throw (costumes mandatory) every fall. This year the party is in November to accomodate my wedding shoot schedule! It’s at my house so I figured I could change the month the party is in. I’m also a pain.

6) I have an unhealthy obsession with ketchup.

7) And peanut butter.

8) I have a ridiculous shoe collection but prefer to be barefoot.

9) When I was a kid I swore I was a fish in another life. I love the water that much.

10) I love rain. Maybe it has to do with that whole fish thing.

11) I’d drink champagne every day if I could.

12) We have three pets – Penny (kitteh), Pippa (kitteh) and Paisley (puppy). When we got Pais, the only names we even considered were “P” names. The first two were merely coincidental.

13) I skydived with the #bestboyfriendever for my 27th birthday. I’d like to go every day. And yes, that is his official hashtag.

14) One of my grad school classmates likened me to Chelsea Handler. Not in appearance, but in snark and scathe.

15) I’m head over heels in love.

16) We bought our first house in April and moved in in June. It is absolutely incredible and I’m grateful for it every single day.

17) Our house is teal. Like teal-teal. For now.

18) I have a special place in my heart for country music. Especially live. Rascal Flatts are my favorite.

19) I sang my first solo in first grade. I still remember the words.

20) Dive bars (preferably with karaoke) and diners are always my first choice.

21) I love cool weather – fall and winter are my jam. But I do love the summertime for the beach. And grilling. I am clearly food motivated.

22) I love new office supplies. Staples is my mecca.

23) I am a perfectionist and overachiever.

24) My mom is my hero.

25) I am so lucky to have found what I want to do with my life at such a young age. I am so damn lucky.
