Hey there, I'm so excited you're here! 

If you've made it to this part of my website, you must be interested in the person behind the camera. So, here I am, Isabel, or Izzy, the founder and owner of Steady&Sway. 

It's been a long journey to get where I am now, but I'm so grateful it's taken me here. 

I was born and raised in Germany, moved to Maryland, went back to Germany, randomly

moved to Puerto Rico, learned Spanish, and then moved to Maryland again. Shewww! That's a lot of moving, but now I am happy to have settled in Maryland for good. During 6 years of living in Puerto Rico, I developed a serious avocado addiction, became a coffee snob, and realized that I'm not the greatest salsa dancer. I love my new home, and just like any other trendy person I'm really into house plants, yoga, and hiking. 

I love being creative with my camera, and even when I'm not working, I always see the world through my lens, telling stories and capturing memories.
