On Etsy since 2008

+-stories and visions through photography-+

I have always been very interested in photography, ever since I was a child. I remember being fascinated by great photography and great photographers and wanting to emulate them. So I would carry my point and shoot everywhere to try and capture the beauty around me the same way they did. Then life got in the way.

Fast forward many years, I met my now husband who inspired me to explore more deeply into photography by showing me that even with a point and shoot I could take stunning photos if I would just pay attention and assess the scene before me with my photographer's eye. We travel a lot together (or traveled a lot before our two kids came along :) and I amassed a good collection of photos.

One day in 2008, I decided to open an Etsy store to share my collection with the world. photopia.etsy.com was born.
