Hi there! Welcome to the PMP blog, a journal about my work, life, travels, fashion, and the occasional dessert. Stay a while and say hello!

Hi, I'm poly.

Iceland is truly a magical place. We landed after a six hour flight from Minneapolis, at 6:30am local time. Some car rentals have offices inside the airport, while others, like the one we booked our car with, is a short shuttle ride away. We rented a small car for our 3 days in Iceland so […]

Being the foodie that I am, I was thrilled that my clients (in Australia) also shared the same love for fresh, high quality, and “pretty” foods. We drove a couple of hours from Brisbane, to Mooloolaba, for photos at the beach, but our very first stop when we got there was The Velo Project, a […]

“Oh, the places you’ll go!”… I can’t help but remember this title from Dr. Seuss when I think of how this whole trip to Brisbane, Australia, happened. I love traveling, and exploring, and this past March I got to fly across the globe for an engagement session in Australia! I love that my job allows […]

This was, by far, the longest way I’ve gone for an engagement session. Over 20 hours, lots of movies in the plane, lots of snacks, little sleep, but I made it to a place I’ve always wanted to go to, Australia! I met Sheena and Sebastian in Minnesota when they reached out about having me […]

Have you ever visited Venice? It had been on my list for years, and I’m so glad I got to cross this city off! It’s definitely VERY touristy, and I’m not sure I’ll go back, but one thing is for sure: it was breathtaking!  While walking around Venice, I kept seeing people drinking an orange […]

ITALIA… Where every little corner has delicious gelato, and every time I open my eyes I want to take a picture. And truly, I’m not exaggerating. I think it was just a couple of years ago that I explored Rome, Naples, and the Amalfi Coast, so I was super excited to go back to Italy […]

Oh Milan… I had so much fun exploring this city. Touring the Duomo was unforgettable. The cathedral took nearly six centuries to complete. The Gothic architecture is beautiful, and all the little details make this a must-see stop in Milan. Since we booked a guided tour, I was able to walk away with some very […]

“A city built by the people, for the people.” Indeed Amsterdam was built slowly, and over water. Sometimes referred to as “Venice of the North,” one thing I would highly recommend doing in Amsterdam is a canal tour. Tourism is a huge part of the economy in this very liberal country.  Paris is known for […]

Amsterdam was built for the people, by the people. it’s a country where “live and let live” couldn’t be more evident as you walk the streets. I visited last September, for the first time, and although I took a lot of photos, which I’ll share later, with some tips, I also played around with video. […]

Traveling is something I invest a lot in, because as an artist, I have come to realize exploring keeps me inspired. One of the places I went to in 2017 was Amsterdam! I went in September, and I think it was the perfect time to be there. The weather was a bit chilly, but exploring […]
