As this year’s Thanksgiving season rolls around, I’ve been reflecting a bit on the good things I have in this life. Of course there are the material things (my camera, phone, etc.), but the more important things I thought about carried much more meaning.

The funny thing about photography is it’s mostly an illusion; a semblance of lines and colors carefully selected in an attempt to elicit some sort of response from the viewer.

Hey there! My name is Alexis, and welcome to verylex! I am an Austin based blogger + photographer, and loving every minute of it! I’m currently a college student working on my teaching degree, and am almost done!! I would classify myself as a photographer, netflix binger, and clothing hoarder. I’m pretty sure that I am 21 going on 65, and may have forgotten to mention that I’m a tad bit melodramatic.
I have always known I wanted to do something creative with my life, but it wasn’t until about a year ago that the idea of blogging + photography slipped into the mix. I finally took the plunge in 2016 and here I am! I started verylex as a place to inspire and empower people just like me, and have found that I’ve actually done those things for myself along the way (win, win!). So welcome, enjoy, and I hope you find something you like!
