We took a short & relaxing trip to the mountains between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. New Mexico is our home away from home, but this time we ventured outside our usual agendas. We stayed one night in a historic town now mostly used as the backdrop for movies & tv shows and two nights at a cozy b&b right by The Plaza in Santa Fe. We didn’t pack our time with lots of activites, instead had one or two things per day that we would like to do and just let the days flow from there. I’ve put together a little video from this trip if you want to check that out as well :)

When Daina said she’d like to shoot with me again, but with her boyfriend this time, I thought it would be a great opportunity to do a romantic ballet shoot! Eli at the M.A.C counter did a great job with Daina’s rosy/glowy makeup look that we paired with a simple white flowy dress and bare feet for a Juliet feel. And because I love clean lines so much, we finished the shoot with some black & white shots against an outdoor wall.

Last month while in Washington, D.C. I took advantage of being a temporary East Coaster by busing up to Manhattan to hang with my family for a weekend! My cousin, Sarah, and I spent Saturday morning grabbing coffee at Happy Bones in SoHo – a place that was on my list back in November when I was in town, but never made it to! Since it was somewhat early in the morning, the shopping crowds were sparse so we wandered leisurely while we drank our coffee and photoshooted :) This is Sarah’s go-to comfortable outfit and I love how 90s it is!

More shoots with Sarah: 1, 2, 3 | More photos from NYC: 1, 2, 3, 4
