New Zealand Feelin: Avalanche Peak

New Zealand Feelin: Avalanche Peak

If you can't tell, I'm missing travel like crazy. I would give almost anything to be back in the southern alps with these stunning views. #newzealandfeelin is something I wanted to start for adventurers of all stages to collect inspiration for future travels, or if you just want to relive your favorite memories. Share with me your favorite photos and help cure my wanderlust. 🙏🏼

Home, Sweet Home. (Back Home from New Zealand)

Wow it's been too long since I've jumped on here. Looking back to when I first started this page I had no idea how the blog platform worked other than posting a few photos and typing some captions. More than a year later I have designed website for some awesome clients, graduated from college, and started my spark of traveling the world.

Anyways, I am switching to a new brand that I hope will take off to something exciting.

Upcoming are some excellent posts of my two months in New Zealand, (I have notes upon notes that I have been collecting over there waiting for decent wifi) and my spontaneous trip to Cali.

After that...

Yosemite?

Greece/Croatia

WA Coast/Olympic Range

AU?

LOTS MORE.

(You could say I have the bug.)

Thank you guys for being so patient, good stuff is on the way. Perhaps after I rid my closet of all the extras that didn't fit into my backpack for the last 8 weeks. (Inspired by this article and the wonderful creation of the minimalist fashion blog that is un-fancy.)

Home, Sweet Home.

T-minus one month and four days until I leave this country! I will have limited wi-fi in NZ, (this is putting it nicely... it literally has the worst internet in the world.) which means I'm wrapping up a lot of my current projects I am working on. I've been designing for some pretty great clients. Interested in being featured in my portfolio? Or just have some ideas you want to come to life? Lets meet for some coffee!

Here are some shots of inspiration where I work.

New Year, New Friends!

While I am writing this I am coming to the realization that in almost a month I am going to be in New Zealand with my very good friend Abbie. I get to spend a week and a half with her before she flies to Hawaii and then I am a solo-traveller with a mission to capture as much as that beautiful country as I can. A part of me wants to just fast-forward to the day I leave, but I pause and reflect on days like this one, a day off, to enjoy the weather and great company.

Kira makes me laugh.

She is quirky and will jump off of a stump for you and run into the sunset so I can capture this:

We drove up passed Tulalip to visit Kayak Point, just in time to see this setting sun. The fog on the bay made everything glow. It was incredible.

I usually never shoot beaches and sunsets, just because I feel like someone else has taken that same shot hundreds of times. Now looking back, I am really glad I get to keep this sunset forever. (:

2015, What A Year It Shall Be.

 

I hope everyone had a lovely new years! I got the pleasure of spending the night with two great people. I am really glad that we left the house party we were at to go to Gas Works Park. We scored with parking and got there at up the hill by 11:45, where people were lighting Chinese lanterns. I was too chilly to take many photos, but Stella captured this one!

I have to say, I have come to love the holidays more and more each year. Christmas was so laid back and it was so nice being able to relax at home. I got to spend it with my nieces and nephews, and that little Bengal angel of mine. 

Lazzara is now two years old and is growing into her ears a lot more than this photo I found when we first got her.

She is quite the little chatter box still, which I am grateful for. Has anyone had any experiences with having multiple bengals in one household? Our other boy cat moved out after Lazzara turned one. He didn't seem to want to share the space so he left to a neighbors house and is now content where he's at.

Here is my first adventure of the year. We hit golden hour at a whopping 3:45 pm in Snohomish where we found some mud. It was chilly but we captured some really amazing shots!
