Welcome, I’m Hailey Dunne, The Urban Romantic is where I share photography, writing, and inspiration from my urban-ish life in the midwest.

A few things I love include British murder mystery shows, black coffee, pretty stationary, 80s new wave inspired alt rock, books, and the arts.

I’m married to someone I love and like a lot. I recently became a mama through China adoption. I am a specialized teacher working for a local non-profit. Alternate careers I can imagine include creating and styling sets or running a book and gift shop.


All content, writing, and photography on this website are original to myself, unless otherwise credited.

Portraits on this page and the blog sidebar are by the talented Erin Martinez, @erinjoyphoto on IG.
