Pacific Drift, pt. 2: Big Island film

8324-029.jpg

Sometimes, almost a year goes by then you finally get around to doing the things you set out to do long ago.
That’s me at the moment — can anyone else relate?
The last 2 parts of PACIFIC DRIFT that I got to create with model Malia Murphey + Billabong Women’s got sent into the archives so I’m bringing them out for some fresh air!

This trip in particular was a quick island hop away to Hawai’i Island (commonly known as Big Island). Hope you enjoy a few 35mm snaps from our time there just before the volcanic eruptions …

HUJIs from MALDIVES

2018 has had its fair share of fun times abroad, but my time in the Maldives with Turquoise Lane from West Australia definitely left a mark on my heart . . . If it's true that the Maldives may not be around forever, I suggest it make its way onto your bucket list because it truly is a magical place in this world.

Tahiti is always a hard 'yes'. Never, ever say no to Tahiti.
Being back in beautiful French Polynesia was special. The smells, the food, the creatures, the memories. They all come flooding back in the second you touch down.

Here are some special moments captured on 35mm. Hope you enjoy. X

Barceló Stories: Occidental at Xcaret Destination

This past June, I spent 10 days in Riviera Maya, Mexico with Barceló Stories at Occidental at Xcaret Destination ... and boy did we get a lot done! 

Whether it was relaxing near their ocean pool, sipping drinks by the pool, seeing the grand Chichen Itza in person, or enjoying exploring the surrounding towns, there was always something to keep my busy body in motion.

Check out these images + videos from my trip to Occidental at Xcaret Destination with all the details of my trip as well as other influencers' times abroad . . .

Beautiful ruins are found throughout the resort where destination weddings take place, iguanas rule, and make for gorgeous photo opps!

Ocean pool goals, where breakfast and lunch are served on the second floor overlooking amazing fish and stunning blue water

Visiting Chichen Itzá was one of the highlights of this trip, one of the largest Maya cities ... a surreal experience, and having a fabulous tour guide was key! 

We were blessed with a full moon during our stay, and enjoying a cold glass of wine before dinner under it was the cherry on top!

'Paradise Found' - Issa de' Mar Summer 2017 Campaign, Maldives

There's nothing better than working with friends.
A beautiful thing happened in the Maldives when a girl's trip turned into a spontaneous campaign shoot ... clear blue water and bikinis are life ... and to be able to create images in tropical destinations alongside my best friends is my life dream realized. :)

Ceylon Sliders

What is it about traveling that heightens your senses? Expands your gratitude? Makes you more open to spontaneity, susceptible to being social, awake to what's possible? 

I can't quite put my finger on it, but I'm addicted to the journey. I often travel for work, to follow people around shooting photos, and while I'm there I can't help but be completely immersed in the moment. Maybe it's because I don't want to miss a thing ...

One word to sum up my time at CEYLON SLIDERS?
... ICED COFFEE.

... and surf. and food. and more iced coffee. and more surf + food.

I believe that Sri Lanka -- and even further, Maldives -- is the farthest I could possibly travel away from my home base in Hawai'i. Three airplanes and a 3 hour bus ride later we landed at Ceylon Sliders, a quaint boutique hotel with 5 adorable rooms right across the street from the Indian Ocean. From one island to another, I felt very at home being surrounded by the ocean and found comfort in surfing with familiar faces. The team at Ceylon Sliders / Sunshine Stories (a sister company that offers yoga and surf retreats) inspired me in more ways than they'll ever know. Their hospitality was beautiful and they showed us such a wonderful time in Sri Lanka that included mostly food, art, surf, and wild tuk tuk rides!
