Chey for Inguz - Jacksonville, Florida

It makes me feel SUPER legit getting up at 5am for a photoshoot. Like this is what the big names do, right? I'm always so bleary eyed, have problems communicating, but somehow still conscious for sunrise shoots. And then there's Chey, who looked fresh and fantastic. What is your secret, girl!?  I'm guessing it has something to do with the fact you're like 10 years younger than me and don't have 3 crazy boys. ;)

My friend Cara just opened her rad Jacksonville boutique, Inguz, and I knew I NEEDED to photograph some of her beautiful pieces. Chey, of course, looked amazing in everything (and bears a striking resemblance to Alicia Viskander).  So between this shoot, and Inguz's 'No Bad Days' fashion show on November 18th (tickets here!), there's definitely some shopping in my future. ;)

Undone Beauty - Asheville, North Carolina

We have a lot of beautiful, amazing places to get married in Florida, but there's one thing we definitely don't have. Mountains. It started with a half-way joke to my friend Becky, of The Wilding Collective, that we just drive up to Asheville for our shoot. We were having a hard time finding a spot for a concept we were working on, but once we had the Blue Ridge Mountains for our location, everything just fell into place. 

Undone beauty is all about letting things be themselves, be untouched, and that was our inspiration.  There are so many articles and blogs out there for making brides and their weddings more 'perfect', more detailed, more styled but not much to help them be more themselves, more natural and real. 

So Becky, who is totally amazing and all about the wildness of nature, made a bouquet that felt picked out of the mountain hills, and a cermony site that seemed like it had planted itself. We literally had people hike by and ask us if it just grew like that. ;)

And of course, photographing everything with film added even more warmth and magic. It just ate that mountain light up!! And the views from a mile in the sky were incredible! The whole shoot just came together in the most beautiful, wild way.  (see all the rad vendors at the bottom of the post)

Naza Surf Camp - Ormond Beach, Florida

"I love surfing even more than video games!" Coming from my 7 year old, that was music to my ears. We keep a tight leash on technology in our house but Finn was always most excited at the prospect of playing video games. We've done swim team, hiking, all kinds of things, but he was never that stoked on any of it. Once he had caught his first wave with our amazing friends at Naza Surf Camp, he was HOOKED!

I've been learning to surf over the last couple years too and having at least one of my boys be as excited about it as me is seriously a dream come true. All the groms (surfer speak for kid surfers) and teachers at this camp were beyond rad, always encouraging each other and so excited when someone had a really great ride. These super cool kids even cheered me (a mom kook!) on when I paddled out with them. It was really just a crazy amazing week and we're going to do it every year from here on out!!
