Who is the person behind Adventuring of a Small Town Girl?

My name is Bessie and I grew up in a small town called Sonora which is nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

I am a big family girl growing up with three sisters (I know my poor dad right? Five girls in one house!) . Our family has grown substantially when my sisters got married and started having kids. As of right now, I have 10 nieces and nephews all under the age of 14! They are my everything. I wouldn't know what to do without them.

After graduating high school I went to college, got my BS degree in Geomatics Engineering, and then found a good steady job. I started my photography business, Bessie Young Photography, back in 2015. My photography business grew into documenting my adventuring which grew into the creation of Adventuring of a Small Town Girl.

Adventuring of a Small Town Girl started via Instagram. I thought it would be a neat way to share some of my adventure pictures rather than overloading my Photography business page. Since starting this instagram page, I though it would be so neat to create a lifestyle and inspiration blog around Adventuring of a small town girl... so here it is! I finally made it happen and I am so happy that you are here to follow along, get inspired, and share your stories too!

I have big plans for Adventuring of a Small Town Girl and I can't wait for you to follow along in this adventure with me.

Most of my adventures take place with myself and my awesome Boston Terrier Yota.

Some fun facts about me:

  1. I am obsessed with coffee
  2. I love basically anything outdoors (obviously)
  3. The first time I was ever in a plane I jumped out of it :)

I am so excited that you are all here. Make sure to subscribe to my blog in order to get updates on when I post something new :)

Wishing you all a beautiful day and fun adventures!
