PHOTOGRAPHERS: Want to learn my tips to creating beautiful flatlays?



I can’t believe we’re half way into 2019, and my birthday is right around the corner. I’m turning 33, and feeling like I’m top of the world. I love lists, so I decided to make a somewhat aggressive list of 35 items to complete before I turn 35, which gives me about two years. Aggressive because I’m nowhere near being able to do a handstand, and I’m so afraid of fish I’m not sure I’d survive a surf lesson, but having a list gives me motivation… I started the list at the beginning of the year, which is why 4 items have already been crossed off.

  1. Go on a hot air balloon ride
  2. Visit the Clementinum Library in Prague – Completed on April 2019
