I'm a people watcher; an observer of life, a valuer of culture, and an embracer of human interaction. But above all else, I'm an admirer of God. All of these things can be seen in my photography.

I had a photo shoot at the best little beach spot yesterday, complete with a pod of dolphins swimming right off the shore all evening! I can’t believe I’ve lived in Santa Barbara for 7 years now and I’m still discovering new places. #getoutside #exploremore

Gotta love those lazy Sunday afternoons. #darlinginstachallenge

Some days you just gotta get outside, sit on the bluffs and watch the waves roll in for awhile.

I’ve been thinking a lot about the word hope lately. I think it’s one of the most powerful words in all of the English language. I’d even go as far as saying it’s the most essential element to survival in this world. How cool is it that God refers to Himself as the God of hope for all who choose to believe in Him?                                              

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope." Romans 15:13

You guys haven’t lived until you’ve tried homemade cashew basil pesto with grilled chicken and yellow squash noodles. Come over sometime, we’ll make it for you. 🍴 #whole30

We’re only on day 5 of our #whole30 and I’ve already learned so much.

1. Coconut milk in coffee is the best thing ever (we normally drink our coffee black).

2. Eating fresh, healthy, whole food is not at all as difficult as I thought it would be. It takes a little extra effort to plan out our meals at the beginning of the week, but it’s already proved to be worth it.

3. Putting more care, thought and intention into how we prepare our food has actually been a lot of fun! It’s caused us to try new foods, experiment with what’s around the house and discover new dishes that have now become some of our all time favorites - like this incredible breakfast skillet @ejdavis just threw together this morning.

I can’t wait to see how we feel after week 2.

Vacation is officially over and so begins @ejdavis and I’s #whole30. We know it’s going to be hard but also incredibly rewarding, and we’re just excited to take on the challenge together. To learn more about the kind of foods we’ll be eating, checkout @whole30. Oh, and prepare for a lot of food pics from us over the next 30 days 😜

One of my favorite things about @ejdavis is his spontaneity. While driving through Las Vegas, we realized we had the same memory of a magical place we had visited as kids. We remembered a huge jungle-like building with glass walls and ceiling, big rocks and dinosaurs everywhere. We did a little research and discovered the place we were thinking of was the Adventure Dome in Circus Circus. Needless to say, we turned off the freeway to find out if it was anything like we remembered. Even though a lot has changed, it was fun to take a little stroll down memory lane together.

Even though we didn’t get to stay in Zion last night, we still got to explore the park just before the thunderstorm rolled in. It’s breathtaking. Already looking forward to the day we go back and hike the Narrows! (at Zion National Park)

Last night was easily one of the most memorable experiences of my life. Eric and I pulled into Monument Valley just hours before sunset and set up camp in front of one of the most epic backdrops I’ve ever seen. The goal going in was to have a clear view from our tent so we could set up the camera outside and get some incredible star shots, and that’s exactly what we did. It may have meant sitting on a cactus at 2am, stumbling over other desert plants throughout the night, getting no sleep, battling ambient light and other technical difficulties, but getting to watch the sunrise with this view made it all more than worth it.
