12 Hours in Duluth, MN

A week ago my boyfriend, Jake, and I decided to make a quick day trip up to Duluth, MN, to explore, hike, shop around, and just enjoy some time away from the our day-to-day lives. Recently I've discovered that for me, photography isn't about posing people, it's not about perfection, for me,  it's about real life. It's about capturing our daily stories in small moments and looking back on them with gratitude. Basically - I've come to realize that I fell in love with capturing life. The things around me. So with that - here's my visual diary of our trip up north. 

enjoy.
