Playing with Shape and Color


Darren has been working on a new light painting tool and we decided to test it out over the weekend on a very cold night! Some of the light you see in these images is also coming from our wood stove which was burning all night long, while we drank wine, listened to music and created some fun imagery focused on shape and color.


Desert Getaway | Cactus Moon Retreat


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.

Come Fly with Me | Badwater Basin


Happy Friday, everyone! I'm flying away (not really - just hopping in a off-roading vehicle) to a secret & amazing location that we will be shooting at for the next few days. Stay tuned and watch my Instagram stories to get a little sneak peek of the fun!

I shared this image last week on my Instagram, but I really wanted you guys to see the full image - I love it so. This is another photo from our angel series - now we can add Death Valley to the list. Thank you Darren for always giving me wings!
