Walking on that bright white gypsum sand illuminated by the sun is something else, you guys! It really is like walking on a dream. This was our second time visiting the ever-so-magical White Sands National Monument, but this time we were graced with the most epic rainbow striking down onto the sand. We shot these photos last year, but they never made it to the blog - until now! I hope you enjoy and see White Sands for yourself one day!
~*Sky high*~ wearing the most ruffletastic outfit by Petersyn on an adventure with mi amor! We cruise this route a couple of times per week, not only because it is a few minutes from our home but we find it to be so meditative. A moment where we can unplug and take in those layers of mountains resting in front of the sunset. I love the light there, as well - and it really highlighted the amazing details in this look by Petersyn. Enjoy!
It's been a while since I've posted here -- but I'm happy to be back, sharing a shoot brought to you by Pitusa! I guess you can say I have been busy getting to know our new neighborhood ~ and I am beginning to fall in L O V E with our surroundings.
Even though I haven't been as active here on the blog, I have been creating more than ever. Inspiration is everywhere you look here on Pine Mountain - and Darren and I are always feeling that urge to get out, explore, and document our dreams by turning them into reality! As we explore we discover new places, and one of those places is the location here in this shoot.
A short 10-minute drive from our house takes you here, overlooking layers of mountains being backlit by the setting sun, and oh my is it dreamy! We can't stop going back ::)
I think I have found my new happy place - where I will go to wash all of those worries away and let my mind wander into those endless layers of mountains! Or just to enjoy a nice beer with my love! Ok, now enjoy the rest of the photos!
The End! Now keep your eyes peeled for new content, I wasn't joking when I said we've been out creating more than ever! ::)
Follow me as I chase the sunset in this series 'Step Into The Light' brought to you by Madison James. They have such a stunning collection of formal wear that will leave you feeling like a princess ~ enjoy!
Hello, WORLD! As you know, I have been MIA moving into our new cabin in the woods. Good news, I am back and feeling better than ever! Waking up to the smell of pines and enjoying constant beautiful views of the Los Padres National Forest has us both ever-so-inspired and ready to create. Here is a shoot we did while driving through our new "neighborhood", brought to you by Sbicca Footwear and Somedays Lovin! Enjoy!
The sunset called and told me to wear pink at the top of the Topanga Overlook...
So I grabbed my favorite get up from Nordstrom (by Topshop) and headed on up.
The moon was big and bright, and the sky kept changing hues as the sun sank behind the mountains!
And, oh my, was the sunset right! The hues were absolutely stunning and matched my outfit perfectly.
This outfit was so fun to shoot! Not only because it paired perfectly with the sunset, but because I just love the modern, yet rock and roll vibe to it all. I will definitely be wearing this to the next concert I check out ::) Peep the links to what I'm wearing below and don't forget to listen to the song of the day -- I have it on repeat lately!

All of my white sands dreams came true recently! This was the final destination of our Southwest road trip, and it was the most magical way to end our journey. I hadn't even stepped out of the car yet when I decided to take off my shoes and explore the dunes in their entirety without them - that sand felt so nice between my toes.
Welcome to the Valley of Fire, yall ~ aka the first stop of our Southwestern road trip! My oh my this location was even better than I was expecting - and I didn't think that was even possible. The luscious shades of orange and red on those rock formations reacted quite nicely with the dreamy golden hour light, causing the most vivid colors to shine throughout the park. As we went further in, we began to see every color of the rainbow perfectly placed within the rocky landscape. Let's just say this was the best way to start the journey.
I was so excited to wear the outfit pictured above - so much that I had to shoot it first! And because the colors just worked perfect in that location. The mala beads from Jeanne Verger are a new favorite of mine. She's actually having a flash sale today -- If you use the code 'ASTROBANDIT' you will receive 20% off of your entire order! I just loved the way they looked with that perfectly boho dress from Raga and turban from I'm With The Band.
