What is The Passport Lifestyle?
What Makes The Passport Lifestyle Unique?
My name is Stephanie and I grew up in Texas with family roots in Mississippi. I attended undergraduate and graduate school in sunny Southern California (outside LA and in San Diego). I studied in London for half a year traveling England and Europe. I lived in charming Charleston, South Carolina for over a year. I spent a year and a half in the Pacific Northwest around Seattle. I just left Japan where I spent 4 years traveling the entire country and large parts of Asia. And most recently, I’ve relocated to Boston.
Whew!!! Let me catch my breath. I love to travel and no matter how many places I see or live in, I always find myself wanting to get back on the road.
I’ve been married to my wonderful husband Daniel for almost 10 years now (I can’t believe it either!). We’ve been travel partners since our first experience together abroad in London, England when he first came to visit me during my Spring Break. Multiple spring breaks later, our cross country long distance relationship ended when we got married as babies at age 22. We honeymooned in Italy, and his James Bond style job has taken us around the world and back.
I love that travel can show you a new side to yourself.
From a Southern girl to a So Cal girl, to a Tokyoite, I find a new piece of myself in every part of the world.
Soooooooo many places and people have grown near and dear to my heart over the years, so it makes logical sense that I spend my precious time blogging about all my local tips and insights. I started this blog out of simple passion for sharing my knowledge and tips as both a traveler and a local.
In addition to traveling, I’m also a photographer. My photos have been printed in numerous publications, but most largely, The New York Times and The LA Times Travel sections. I’ve apprenticed from some of the very best artists while in Tokyo and I’m currently continuing my education in photography while here in Boston at various professional art schools and universities.
The Passport Lifestyle is expanding its reach every day around the world. Are you a brand looking to build awareness or build a partnership?
Are you a tourism agency or lodging that needs promotion or perhaps some high quality professional images for your website and marketing?
Or are you a blogger who simply wants to know the secret to taking high quality professional images that stand out above the rest? For starters, there’s no real secret or short cuts to producing outstanding photography. But there are a lot of things you can do to rapidly improve your images. I’ll work with you on improving your images and help to identify ways you can better improve your overall quality of photography. See my Work With Me page for more information on about how I can help you.
