ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Thanks Kryz for the nomination.

I know this challenge has a lot of haters but lets not forget that in the end it’s all for a good cause. Please check out this video by photographer Anthony Carbajal for an honest look at the what people who suffer from ALS have to live with: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cK7UUYt_vRI

Though the challenge is silly it shines a spotlight on this issue and it has raised $94.3M since July 29. I encourage everyone to donate over at ALSA.org. x

Island Girl 2014: Straw Cap

I had so much fun shooting at a gorgeous beach here in Cebu for Island Girl Philippines. You can see what our day was like in the BTS video here. As you can imagine, we took soooo many photos that day. Which is easy to do when you love the brand you’re shooting and you have a team of such lovely people inspiring you. I didn’t want to just throw everything into one post so I’ll be spreading these out and showing your some of my favorites (because I have so many!). Starting with this awesome straw hat!
