Shoutout SoCal | Interview | San Diego Photographer

I recently had the honor of being interviewed by Shoutout SoCal online magazine! I always love the opportunity to be interviewed. It gives me a chance to reflect and dive a little deeper into my purpose. Sometimes I think we get so busy accomplishing our goals that we forget to embrace the process. Being interviewed allows me to remember where I began and see how far I’ve come! I love sharing about my journey in hopes to encourage young creatives to follow their passion.

Desert Escape | ROLEmodel 20 Team Shoot | Anza Borrego Desert

I had the best time with my ROLEmodel20 team in the desert last weekend!  We got together for a overnight campout and a fun styled shoot.  One of the best parts of the ROLEmodel team is the opportunity for the girls to meet and befriend girls from around the county.  They make a bond with each other that lasts beyond their year with me. I wanted to give them an opportunity to hang out and just have fun together. 
The week before they met me at Blues and Shoes Boutique in Carlsbad for a private styling session with the owner.  She styled them in these fun animal prints.  I love the outfits against this neutral background, they really pop. 
We packed our bags and they met me in the desert for a fun getaway. They set up tents and then they got ready for the shoot. We headed to the Sandstone Canyon for a unique desert backdrop. I love this location!
They had a great time laughing and being silly together while we shot.  I love letting them take the lead during styled shoots, I want their input and for their personalities to shine. It's also fun to try out some different posing and just be a little more creative.
After our shoot, we came back to camp for a little surprise Friendsgiving! They loved it.  They chatted around the table for a long time like old friends.  My heart was full! 
Here are some favs from out Desert Escape shoot.
