Spring is officially here and I am READY for it.

Back from Cabo and Disney, gearing up to shoot with the INCREDIBLE @sherrielong and @marionmossfloral this weekend, and then it’s off to Denver with the @xero team.  Goodbye slow season, hello gorgeous weather season!

Real life is overrated. I'm still looking for ways to add "professional traveler" to my resume. LMK if you have any ideas.
.
Kidding aside, 2019 hasn't been kind to us. And it's taking all the powerlifting, soul cycle and mezcal margaritas to keep my happy face on. If you see me in the streets, please offer me a hug. Or a high five if that's more your jam. Or wine. I'll always take wine.

#Mexico on @fujifilm_profilm #400h film // processed by @thefindlab

Secrets of Daylight Savings success. Spend the weekend in Mexico with the best of friends and all the tequila + tacos. Thanks for coming to my TedTalk.

Warrior week feels after soul cycle. If you need me, I'll just be over here recovering on the floor. But also, new Soul Legend shoes, so life is basically perfect. #retailtherapy #soulgifted

Someone in the industry told me a few days ago that shooting film has become too trendy. That it was no longer “cool” because too many people had learned how to do it. So it’s no longer a selling point in a photographers resume. It really threw me for a loop and without a quick response, I just sort of smiled and shrugged it off. 🤷🏻‍♀️
.
But guys, here’s the thing. Film, for me, has ALWAYS been a part of my workflow. Likely because I’m a dinosaur in the photography world and have been shooting long enough to remember the days before digital. But also, it’s not something I picked up to be trendy or cool. (Spoiler alert, I’m not cool. So I’m ok with it.)
.
I don’t care how many digital cameras I own, film will always own my heart.
.
More from this magical shoot coming soon!

Only 8 days until I’m back in that Tahoe snow. (But who’s counting?) I know most of you are digging your way OUT of this weather, but I. Can’t. Wait.
.
It’s been a rough beginning of the year for us, and I need to escape with this little family of mine. Thankful we have a place so close to home that feels worlds away.

Forever a lover of beautiful messes. (Clearly there is a life metaphor in there somewhere.)

It's elopement season in San Francisco and I’m here for it.

You're throwing me some curveballs 2019.
.
I’ve been pretty silent on social media for the last few weeks, but wanted to stop in and thank you all for the messages. I’m ok. Just processing and hiding from social media. I’ll be back soon, I promise. Lots of new work to share. 💕

I'm not a huge resolutions person (at all), but I really love the beginning of the new year. I love looking back at what I accomplished in the last 12 months. I love looking through the images I've created and the stories I've been able to tell. And finally, I can enjoy looking at my images. As an artist, it can often be hard to find that appreciation in the moment. (Especially as I ease back into shooting digital work again!) I'm often caught up in the editing, seeing the flaws and fixing the mistakes. It takes time and space before I can look at my recent work and see the beauty. And that strikes me as something that rings true for MOST THINGS.
.
Time (And space), can make the hardships we faced seem less hard. It can make the anguish that we felt over certain wounds feel less painful. It's basically an instagram filter for our minds. And it allows us to reflect.
.
But what I really love comes after my reflection. I don't simply see my flaws anymore. I see areas that I can grow and improve. I see opportunities in my work. And beauty. And I start making lists of things I want to try, or shoots I want to style. It's invigorating!
.
Anyway, that was my long and rambling way of saying I'm excited for things to come.

It's not my normal 'pretty' post. But I was completely blown away when nearly everyone that responded to my story poll said they'd like to see more of my REAL life on IG. So, here you go. (I can't promise you'll see my face on IG everyday, but I'll do my best to sprinkle some more of myself into my photos.) This is what most of my Weekend mornings look like. Sweaty, red faced and so incredibly happy/grateful to have the means and ability to sweat out my troubles or stress on a @soulcycle bike. It's 45 minutes of challenging, heart pumping bliss.
.
And now I'm curious. How do you find your happiness?

#thehappinesschallenge and #soulgifted

Anyone else feel like it’s a no pants kind of Saturday?
.
Spending today basking in the post @burke_williams massage glow. And Lounging at the @hotelzeppelin with @gofitjo after our staycation. Definitely feeling like pants might cramp my style.
.
Happy Saturday friends. I hope it’s a lazy one!
