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.
What are the odds that my birthday would fall on #nationalcoffeeday?! That’s pretty much the best gift a coffee lover could ask for!! Who’s celebrating with me?! 🎉☕️🎉

Today is DAY 29 of our #whole30!! I honestly can’t believe we made it this far, but I’m so glad we did because it feels great! Special shoutout to @larabar for getting us through those long days of shooting weddings. Here are a few of our fav #whole30compliant flavors.

One of my favorite details from yesterday’s wedding - A&W (Alyssa & Weston) root beer floats. What an awesome idea!! 🍻 #CarrollsCollide (at Kal Ranch)

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.
