A little late but I am so excited to share about my trip to Ellenborough Park in Cheltenham, England. Reliving this trip through these photos has me craving another adventure! In February I went on a trip of a lifetime. Philip and I had been discussing traveling to Europe since early in our marriage and […]

Snow Day in Rockville, Maryland. In light of the snow day yesterday, I thought it was fitting to post a blog about a snow day. I’m still in California, so rather than snow I’m experiencing sunshine but cheers to the snow the east coast has! There is something so peaceful, fun and thrilling about a […]

Today, November 17, 2018 is Philip and I’s six-year wedding anniversary! At times it feels like we’ve been together forever, and other times it feels like just yesterday when we said, “I do!”. Marriage isn’t easy but it’s definitely worth it. All those cliché things you hear, they are pretty much true! This post is […]

HOLIDAY FESTIVITIES Holiday Activities around Maryland, Virginia and DC. Each year I feel like I don’t do enough festive things – specifically during the fall and winter season.

On Friday night we set out for New Jersey. Philip got home from work, we tidied up the house and then went on our way. The drive was easy until we got about half way through the New Jersey turnpike, then traffic came to a halt. It was raining, thunder and lightning… I loved it! […]

When I visited Seattle, Washington last week I made a trip Mt. Rainier. My dad picked me up Sunday morning, we grabbed brunch and were on our way. We weren’t able to drive up the mountain as far as we had hoped. It was too early in the season, and those paths wouldn’t open for […]

I have a love for homes. Philip and I started a tradition during the Holidays of getting a drink and driving around different neighborhoods looking at christmas lights. We’ve been doing this for years, and will continue to! While doing this, we realized we like looking at homes. And not just during the holidays. We’ve […]

We thought it was the first day of spring, but nature threw a curve ball of snow our way. I’ll admit that I was skeptical that this “snow storm” was actually going to hit. I woke up early Wednesday morning, around 05:45 and proceeded to jump on twitter saying, “Sort of bummed I didn’t wake […]

I am really lucky. My husband is so sweet and supportive of my creative photography gig. He comes to sessions with me, he answers emails, does consults, he really does it all! Whenever I need assistance he is there. Recently I’ve been doing projects of photographing myself. It has been ten times easier when Philip […]

I am Katy Murray. A believer, a wife and a red head.
I love adventure. Any adventure.
I love to travel. Anywhere.
I don't laugh out loud during movies, even when I find them funny (Ask my husband and close friends). I tend to plan, too often. I like routine. I try to see the good in every day. I'm learning to fully trust God and his plan for me. I dream, way too much. I LOVE socks, cute socks, fuzzy socks, warm socks, socks!
