My boyfriend and I made a very last minute decision to book a 7-day cruise to the Caribbean this spring. This was my first time on a cruise ship, so I was both nervous and excited and had no idea what to expect. We sailed Norwegian Escape and stayed in the Haven Suites which gave us access to many amenities that were not open to the rest of the cruisers. The staff were very accommodating and the selection of restaurants, bars, and activities on the ship was fantastic. We even befriended some of the cast members from one of the shows!

Our first stop was St. Thomas. We really wanted to explore St. John while we were close by, so we hopped on a ferry and spent most of our morning floating in the water at Trunk Bay, St. John. After lunch and a few drinks, we headed back to St. Thomas and explored Magen’s Bay before getting back on the ship. After two sea days, we made it to Tortola. We hopped on a ferry to The Baths in Virgin Gorda. This was by far the most beautiful spot I have visited! Our last day was in Nassau, Bahamas. One of my goals on this trip was to photograph a couple while we were in Nassau. Luckily I met a couple on our cruise ship that allowed me to photograph them at the Queen’s Staircase in Nassau. Along with exploring all of the beautiful places, we met tons of amazing people on this cruise who are now some of our good friends.

If you are planning a cruise, I recommend researching other locations around the islands that are in your itinerary. St. John wasn’t a part of our itinerary but it was only a 15 minute ferry ride away. Exploring the Caribbean by ship is a great way to get a feel for what these beautiful islands have to offer. Next time we plan a trip to the Caribbean, we will stay on one of the island's – most likely St. John.

I started my career ten years ago, working at a high end photography studio in my early twenties. No college, just hands on experience. While working there for a few years, I was also working on building up a clientele of my own. Once I had established a good amount of clients, I left the company and started my own business. My one hope for my art is that it will withstand the test of time and that further generations can appreciate it.

You’re a busy photographer/cinematographer/creative. You don’t have an extra $150-$10,000 laying around to collect sample products and you definitely don’t have a week to style rooms, hang art on the walls, set up flat lays, collect inspiring props AND THEN photograph everything and edit the images.
