If you ever wonder where I go to in my mind

Can I wake up in the sky? ☁️

⁣Am I running away if I’m running towards something? 🌿⠀

(Except I’m probably running the wrong way because if you know me, you know I’m actually directionally challenged. I think I was born with my internal compass backward if that’s a thing. Future note if we’re ever together and I’m acting like I know where we’re going, know that I really don’t. 😂)

I really feel like I was meant to live on an island somewhere 🌺✨

⁣Story saw it first 🌺 ⠀

I was actually feeling worked up/stressed about this set of photos. I loved this day, this shoot, and all of the women we worked with and this moment really called for a more natural, free feel. I never felt uncomfortable once during (just the opposite actually), but I felt uncomfortable sharing them afterwards. ⠀
⠀
It’s a weird thing that I’m always so hesitant to mention because I feel like it can be controversial, and everyone is rightfully comfortable, and uncomfortable with certain things. You definitely don’t need to be in a bathing suit, or topless/bottomless, or naked to feel beautiful or create art, and I would never want to make it seem like that’s what I endorse for anyone else. ⠀
⠀
I also don’t want to have to explain myself or justify every time I want to post work that I love, and so, I am sorry if this offends you. But this is me and I love the human body and I love dis body!! (I hope we all can come to a place where we feel that!) and this is my expression as much as it is the photographers/creatives I get to work with. ⠀
⠀
I was also putting a lot of energy worrying about the judgment of other people when I realized I value my mom’s opinion over everyone else’s. So, I showed my mom some of the photos and asked her how she felt about them. And she said she doesn’t care (“Well, not that I don’t care, but you can do whatever your heart desires. If I had a problem you would’ve heard about it by now”, along with some boundaries she jokingly mentioned, that I seriously agreed with). ⠀
⠀
So here I am! I’m over it 😬 and If you read all of that, thanks for coming to my TED talk LMAO. Sounds like a lot over a bunch of photos but man, I’m vulnerable about my art ❤

Teases of a summer breeze

So you say you wanna get away? ✨

⁣I know that’s a lot of waterfalls, but how could I not?? 🌿💦 Kauai was one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to (but the hikes to these places were NOT hahaha I’ve never been so covered in mud and dirt). So thankful to our new friends @dannytrz and @andyhvu for showing us what adventuring really means.⠀

✨ and if you wanna come, @dani_campa and I will be walking around in bikinis tonight at the @vanswimfs, unfortunately no waterfall. 💙

Had so much fun working with so many amazing women this day ❤️ So inspiring to see women entrepreneurs who are also moms, models, photographers & students really doing beautiful things 😍

This weekend reminded me not to take our home for granted. I spend a lot of time (& money & energy) seeing new and beautiful locations, and sometimes I forget we live in one of the most amazing places 💙⠀

protect your energy, protect your friends, protect mother nature 🌿

It’s gloomy in vancouver (as usual lmao) but I’m so happy that I got to spend so much of this weekend outside with friends while it was nice out. Taking care of our planet starts from having love and appreciation for it (I’m sorry I know we picked a few flowers - really weeds tho 😩😂). Happy Earth Day loves 🌲🌎💙
