My name is Kailey. I was born and raised in Connecticut. I grew up in southeastern Connecticut close to the shoreline. I spent a lot of time going to local spots and parks with my family and friends.

When the pandemic hit in 2020, I had time to start exploring a bit further from home. I started doing day trips in Connecticut and the surrounding states.

I started with setting out to photograph all of the waterfalls in the state. Then I moved on to exploring state parks.

These days, I’m on the hunt for local hidden gems. I believe that you don’t have to go far from home to experience the beauty of nature. Many people think that Connecticut is a passthrough state to get to other more interesting states in New England.

My goal is to share my finds and show you that this tiny state has a lot to offer. I want you to experience all that Connecticut and the Northeast has to offer.

I graduated from Eastern Connecticut State University in 2020 with a degree in New Media Studies with a concentration in Communication Media.

In my free time, I enjoy hiking, exploring New England, photographing wildlife, crafting, and playing guitar and piano.

You can see most of my photographs from my travels on my Facebook page. You can also follow me on Instagram. Be sure to follow to see my travel and wildlife photographs!
