It's always an adventure on the road with Darius Twin and I'm thankful for the moments we share along the way. Here's a moment from one of our adventures to El Mirage  ~~ we drove past these Joshua Trees shining in that blue hour light, with those snow-capped mountains peeking from behind, begging us to stop for some photos. So we did, and woah(!) I'm loving the light on these images. Can you tell I saw The Revenant the night before by the styling of this look? I LOVE this faux fur coat from Native Rose, and so did that blue hour light.

Into The Mountains


What an adventure it was driving up the Angeles Crest Highway to Mount Wilson with this lovely lady ~ Hieu ~ and of course the one who documented it all with one hell of a vision, Darius Twin. The drive up there was a journey in itself, because as we saw cars driving the opposite direction down the mountain, we noticed the roofs were covered in snow. 'Do we continue?' we asked ourselves, 'YES!' So we did (with a little hesitation) ~~ and it was such a magical journey that ended with snow and a dreamy sunset. It was really fun combining forces and creating some stunning imagery with vibrant colors ~ how amazing is Hieu's hair by the way?

I felt a bit like Princess Leia during this shoot -- if you aren't sure why, well it's because this is one of the locations they shot Return of the Jedi at, and it looked even more amazing in person! We were most fascinated by the moss and ferns (as I'm sure you can tell based on our photos, ha!) but because of the moisture and fog that filled the air, the vibrant green hues appeared to have a neon glow.

As I'm sure you guys already know, I'm a huge sucker for sunsets ~ I just love how each sunset is different and illuminates the environment with a colorful glow. If you're looking for me, you'll find me under the sunset ::) This particular shoot happened while we were on our most recent adventure through the redwoods -- we stopped here at Clam Beach right as we began to see some color fill the sky! The sky was on fire that night, and so was the location we stopped at.
