I always struggle with what to write in my posts. Sometimes I have no idea what to even talk about or relate to. This photo was taken on my last road trip to California. The sunset was incredible and the warm weather as well as being in the middle of nowhere allowed me to feel a sort of comfort and calm crash like a wave across me. 

This sunset was beautiful, but this photo makes me wonder: how many more will there be? We as stewards of this planet need to do better, we need to be better about taking care of the only planet we have. The greediness and selfishness of our culture needs to be changed and redirected towards caring about our planet and environment. If we destroy this earth, not only are we destroying ourselves, but everything else on it. 🌏

Watching the sun rise is one of the most calming, quiet, and beautiful moments you can experience in life. No two sunrises are ever the same and to experience a sunrise in a new place is a feeling unlike any other. I am currently watching the sun rise in Washington state while helping out with the wild fires here and decided to take a moment to post for  #worldphotographyday. 

Photography is a huge part of my life. I have been doing it since high school with film and have taught myself the digital side. It is one of my biggest passions and I love capturing moments from my life and travels. To be able to travel and take photos for a living would be my dream job and hopefully I will get there one day. Photography is what makes me happy. Here is to World Photography Day. πŸŒ…

Still learning how to work with couples, how to pose them, how to compose the shot, and how to edit the photos. It has been a lot of fun learning a new style of photography and I am looking forward to continue expanding my skill set in different areas πŸ“Έ

@kwantsu.destine and I had an incredible trip out to Cali the other weekend. A total of 30+ hours of driving for three days of surfing and it was worth it. Both of us had only been river surfing for about a little over a month, so we knew trying to surf in the ocean was gonna be a huge learning curve. It was a challenge, but so much fun learning that we almost didn’t leave. Hoping to make another trip soon and surf some more 🏝

This was the last time I was at the ocean. I thought it had been longer (3 years ago when I was in Hawaii), but it’s been 1.5 years when I took a trip to the Pacific side of Mexico. Today, @kwantsu.destine and I head for Cali for our first ever surf trip and we are beyond stoked! πŸ„πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ

I never thought I’d have a chance to visit Russia; although, there’s a lot of countries that I never thought I’d see. I’d love to go back and see Moscow. Hell, I’d love to see every city in every country. Got that travel bug again, but let’s be honest, I always have the travel bug. πŸŒ†

Surfing 4-5 days a week here in the middle of the country. Who would have thought you could surf anywhere other than the ocean? πŸ„πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ

@kwantsu.destine and I had a goal last weekend to skate, surf, and snowboard all in one day. We managed to do two in a day, but not all three. However, we did manage to do all three before the weekend ended, which is an accomplishment in itself. πŸ„πŸ½β€β™‚οΈπŸ‚πŸ›Ή
