Had this waiting for me on my desk this week after returning from my 6 day solar eclipse trip to Central-Eastern Oregon wilderness. Chantel, where are you so I can give you the biggest hug, girl!? #overlanding#overland#friends#pnw#optoutside
Some of my best memories are from beaches. I love morning walks, when the tide recedes displacing that immense amount of water to some other part of the world. The mist hangs over the water and wraps my shoulders with a chill, salty blanket of familiarity. Each step I take in the wet sand is erased in a humbling reminder that our footsteps are a fleeting mark in the sands of time. The vast seemingly endless beach full of possibility and the mystery that hangs in the ocean breeze fills me with wonder, hope and inspiration -- I feel most alive in these moments #pnw
For such a small country, there is such rich history and strong sense of itself. Being mixed means you're a small part of this and that but not a big part of anything in particular; but I'm happy this place is in my blood. I loved meeting Sir Lachlan MacLean, Clan Chieftain, on our way to take after-ceremony photos. He not only corrected my pronunciation of my own last name (Pete's sake I've been wrong this whole time), but he told Greg to "please take care of her". What an incredible moment of acceptance that gave me the warm fuzzies in my innerds 🤗 #Scotland#Family
Just wishing I was at the beach...
This was about a year ago ago. And in a few more days we are finally making it back for a couple days of beach time.
I can't wait.
There is just something so soothing about the ocean.
The salt in the air.
I couldn't help but share an adorable behind the scenes moment from a recent family session. This little cutie decided to come sit on my lap and check out the camera, so I took some "selfies" while I could in that brief moment. 😍
