Waking up at the Cactus Moon Retreat was the most delightful experience and a great way to start the day in Joshua Tree - especially when wearing that bodysuit from Miakoda, made with the softest sustainable and organic material!

From our bedroom window, we had the most mesmerizing views of the mountains. I don't think I could have asked for a better thing to see right as my eyes began to open in the morning!

So Darren and I took advantage of the natural light, the designed-to-perfection house, and of course that rad lil' bodysuit!

Once the sun set, we wanted to take advantage of the dance studio at the Cactus Moon Retreat by using a bit of dance + light painting! We've had this idea in mind for quite some time, but just never had a studio at our fingertips. This was our chance to get our creative juices flowing and improvise on some imagery. The following images are 3 of many shots that we took! I changed my pose between every shot, and Darren would create illustrations for each one on the spot. I just love the way they turned out!

I loved teaming up with Miakoda on this shoot and admire their statement when designing clothing - they "equally emphasize ecology and excellence in design" Their production is organic and made in NYC! Check out what I am wearing from their collection below.
