Hey there!

Hi! My name is Sonya Katarina Isenberg and I’m 19 years old. I was raised in northern Idaho (#northwestisbest #idahome #hashtag) but I’m currently a sophomore studying architecture and economics at Princeton University in New Jersey. Class of 2020!

I love all things artsy: photography, drawing, writing music, and making movies. This blog is where I post tidbits from my random adventures with family and friends.



I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark III and a 50 mm 1.2 lens, affectionately called “bébé.” When you see me in the frame, my mother is most likely behind the camera. We spend our vacations trying to find the perfect shot, and I love her for bearing with me!

All photos are edited by me with Lightroom, unless otherwise specified.

If you want to schedule a shoot with me, email me to discuss rates and we’ll sort out all the details! I have been a professional photographer for several years, in Idaho, New York, and on campus at Princeton. Click the contact tab above to get in touch!


Why Incandescently Happy

A few years ago, I was sitting on the couch, trying to think of a username for my Instagram account. I happened to be watching the scene in Pride and Prejudice when Elizabeth says:

“You may only call me Mrs. Darcy when you are completely, and perfectly, and incandescently happy.”

So yep that worked out well! But ‘incandescently happy’ also represents me. I love laughing and enjoying life and smiling in the face of the world. Happy is who I am. God has given us this wonderful world to play in. How amazing is that?!
