The Blog:


Welcome to the MKP Diaries! This blog is my photographic journal that documents everyday beauty, moments of love and our beautiful world. Here, you can read about the details of my photographic adventures. It is intended to serve as positive inspiration to always look for the beauty no matter what life has in store for us. Just like photography enriches my life by filling my heart with gratitude to be alive, it is my hope that my photography will instill a sense of wonder and awe in you about all that life has to offer.
