Last night I had the pleasure of mingling with some of Baltimore’s most creative folks at the new Diamondback Brewery in Locust Point, Baltimore. It was a celebration of Baltimore’s online community, originally named “Maryland’s Outstanding Blogs,” but more widely known as “The Mobbies.” I was super excited to have won “Best Use of Photo.” A huge THANK YOU to those who nominated and voted for me!

My Emoji Award and Me

I will be the first to admit that while I am not the best photographer on that list, that is the beauty of photography, there is so much room to learn and lots of space to find your own style. Also, as the name of the category hints to, there are so many ways you can use photography. For me, it has always been a goal to use my photography and blog as a way to share new places, awesome local businesses, and the beautiful little details in life. All in hopes that I can inspire others to get out there and create their own adventures.

Also, it has been awesome to watch the creative community grow over the past few years. This is due to many things, but I personally want to shout out to @TheBmoreCreatives, Rising Tide Society, and Creative Mornings. While at times peaceful and empowering, it can be also be lonely and disheartening to be working alone and these groups have truly brought together communities online and IRL.

In the spirit of community over competition, here are some of my favorites that you should be keeping an eye on, in no particular order (and not even scraping the surface of awesomeness that Baltimore has to offer):

Considering I took a leap of faith a couple months ago and charted a new path for my career, it truly means the world to have the support of my friends, family, and all the creative people I continue to have the pleasure of meeting around Baltimore and on my travels. Thanks again!

Much Love,
