Hello! My name is Liz—welcome to my quest of becoming the first woman (that I know of) to take, edit, and publish one million photographs to document my journey through this vast, beautiful, diverse, and complex world that we live in.

I spent my childhood moving around small towns in the Midwest. After completing high school in Minnesota, I relocated to St. Louis, Missouri to attend college. I spent the second semester of my sophomore year in Haifa, Israel which solidified my love of travel my passion for new cultures.  I spent some time on the East Coast after college but didn’t have nearly enough time to explore.

After school, I took a job teaching English at a private school in Anyang, South Korea. After two and a half years of living and working in Asia, I decided it was time to come home to the United States and lay down some roots.

I had the opportunity to move to Seattle and fell in love with the mountains, the ocean, the food, and the people. My life in the Pacific Northwest has allowed me to pursue my many passions including my rescue dog, Rico, photography, hiking, scuba diving, pottery, cooking, gummy candy, sugar cookies, coffee, tea, running, art in all forms, and travel.

In 2019 I took a job that allowed me to travel extensively around the West Coast. I had the opportunity to fall in love with and photograph cities of the Western United States.

It is my hope that this project encourages at least one person to live life to the fullest and to see the beauty in both the big and small things that this world as to offer.



  1. Liz, the shot is beautiful and I know the trees would have been even more gorgeous. I am so glad you joined with this one. Thank you! I hope to see you back on the 12th!

  2. Thank you so much for the kind words Esha! I can’t wait to check out your journey as well!

  3. Visiting your blog for the first time, Liz and I must say you did actually inspire me! Your tree photo this week is simply beautiful. Love the angle with which you’ve taken the shot.

    Your post reminded me how there was a time when travel and photography used to be a regular part of life for me…now, just trying to count my blessings and stay calm through the challenging times.

    So lovely to meet you virtually, Liz. Looking forward to seeing more from you in the coming weeks. Wishing you a blessed week ahead.
