Stories that matter

These gorgeous women and the gorgeous color needed to be photographed. These friends traveled to Mexico together and I met them on the beach.

Any time spent together with friends in this isolating time is a blessing to us. We walked everywhere, explored everything outdoors, ate all the things, & listened to music.  If you have […]
