I’m Pansy – I love photography, travel, and all the pretty flowers! (How fitting that I was named after a flower!) 🌸
I am inspired by:
the beauty of nature
colors that spark joy,
images that delight!
If you appreciate those things too, then we have a lot in common already!! 😊 Because I’m obsessed with all of the above, and am driven to capture scenes and create images that feel timeless, romantic and happy. I hope to convey some of the joy and wonder that I feel when I discover amazing and beautiful places, whether on a grand adventure, or at a local garden.
Like Duchess Kate, I believe that being in nature and being outdoors has huge benefits on our physical and mental well-being, which is why so many of my pictures are set in parks and gardens or have some natural element to them. (And yes, I just compared myself to Duchess Kate…)
With this blog, I hope to share my travel & photography tips with you, and also some of my other hobbies and interests, most of which are also flower-related! (such as how to harvest and dry lavender, DIY lavender sachets, favorite flower books, etc)
I hope that you’ll find some travel & photography inspiration and some useful information here!
My travel photos are typically taken with my wonderful husband Ken’s assistance while I do the location planning, composition, and editing. Read about our photography equipment here.
More about me: I was born and raised in San Francisco and am lucky to still live in the S.F. Bay Area. After graduating from UC Berkeley, I worked for a number of years in environmental and sustainability consulting, then in software product management. I also enjoy working with Ken on his home-building projects. In my spare time, I’m usually seeking out some delicious food!
Thank you for following along, I hope you have a wonderful day! ❤️
