photographer. foodie. damsel.
by Damsel is a blog that encompasses fashion, artisan GF recipes, and lifestyle. Created by Jenna Roi, an SC born photographer, the site is an avenue to share personal style, delicious food, and little bit of heart.
In the summer of 2016, after battling chronic illness for 9 years, I turned to the creative outlet of photography for a fresh distraction and quickly fell in love. That creative outlet spawned a love for capturing personal style, creating gluten free recipes, and curating lifestyle inspiration for other spitfires at heart. My daily battle with physical pain became an emotionally demanding struggle that often left me feeling like a damsel in distress, always in need of a little help to get me through. And so by Damsel was born.
My greatest struggles have shaped me more than anything and through them I found purpose, inspiration, and peace. My heart is to share the beautiful things in this life that bring a spark of brightness to the valley that pain often displaces me, and to share them in a way that inspires others to find beauty and purpose through their pain too.
In my spare time I enjoy watercolor painting, portrait photography, and snuggles with my rescued Pomeranian [ Dekker ]. I love to cook + bake from scratch and am fueld by coconut milk iced coffee and matcha green tea.
