Brown Sugar Oat Cookies

I graduate from college tomorrow and I decided to spend the morning baking and reflecting on the past 4 years of my college career. When I started my journey into photography I had no idea I would eventually add my two passions into one career path. About a year ago as I was sitting in my cousins New York City apartment, I knew that I wasn't as satisfied photographing people, I started playing around with my own baking and photographing my creations as a hobby. My background in photography helped me perfect my lighting, plating and my styling. I knew this is what I was mean to do with my skills. I find baking and photography as calming as yoga or a massage. The kitchen truly is my happy place. 

My recipe collection has grown signficantly over these past 6 months, I decided to make a small cookbook for a final project in my senior thesis capstone. After assembling the cookbook, I realized that I want to produce more and more cookbooks! 

If this is something anyone would like to buy let me know at and I can set up a store on my website and we can get it going! Thank you for your constant support and views!
