FILM: Lily

My DSLR has been moody lately -- maybe it was Mercury -- or maybe it was just tired of working, and so film has made a comeback in a huge way in my life as of late. 

Film was my foundation, and although I wish I was still in the dark room, I still thoroughly enjoy that state of anticipation waiting for rolls to come in ... 

Here's a couple clicks of Lily <3

Coconut Comradery

Alana Spencer is someone that should be on your radar.
I've known her since she was just a tiny 12-year-old surfer grom, but she's always carried herself different than the rest. She's grown into such a beautifully calm, gracious, and gifted woman and it's always exciting to see what kind of projects she's diving into.

It was a pleasure taking her pic as she made time for me in her busy schedule right before flying out to the Gold Coast of Australia. Having self-employed friends who travel all over the world for work is so inspiring; but it's always the best when we get to catch up on life in our favorite place on earth, HOME.

Issa de' Mar Summer 2016 Sneak Peek

I may be biased because two of my best friends in the entire world are the women behind ISSA DE' MAR, but truly they are the most functional suits I've found for surfing + other water activities outside of sitting pretty on the sand.

This is a sneak of their 2016 Summer collection which literally makes me die of cuteness. Stripes? Cheetah print? Palms? I cannot even.

MODEL: Malia Murphey (@maliamurphey)

Don't forget to give Issa a follow on IG: @issademar for more bikini radness :)

There's a new boutique hotel popping up in Waikiki and we're kind of obsessed. Not only is the Surfjack hotel vintage-cool, but it came at the perfect time ... Because Waikiki is our stomping grounds for summer swells + summer scenes ...

I teamed up with the masterminds behind BikiniBird, model goddess Malia Murphey, + fabulous hair/makeup lady Jasmine Mullins on an editorial. You can find all of these hot bikinis at Hope you enjoy these images ...

Bree x Sylver x Spell

These images pretty much sum up why I love my job so much ..
Meeting new friends, chasing light, frolicking my favorite shores, and connecting with beautiful people through my lens. That's it. Those are the greatest rewards that come from doing what I do.

On this particular morning, our photoshoot felt more like an imaginative journey through the jungle with little 3-year-old Sylver. What a beautiful boy with an equally beautiful mama. I'm in love with this duo and their lust for life!
