I love the whole premise of Photo Field Trip: photographers in nature (instead of a stuffy classroom), surrounded by other creatives, learning in yurts, adventures through fields, hikes to play with baby goats, campfire smell everywhere...it's so wonderful! After last year's experience (see Part I and Part II), I knew I had to return this year if for no other reason than to see what California is like without a monsoon! Um, it's AMAZING!! Sooo much SUNSHINE! :)
How awesome is TOMS?! They gave each of us one of their very first ever TOMS backpacks and a pair of killer TOMS sunglasses! I especially love the bag because it supports pregnant women across the globe by providing them with a safe birth kit. Each year, over 40 million women give birth without the help of a trained birthing attendant. In TOMS amazing "one-for-one" business practice, each bag purchased will provide a safe birth kit for another mom-to-be. Read more about it here!
Meet my adorable friend Sidney Morgan - the queen of living adventurously! :)
The adorable Martha Swann was so fun to photograph!
This stunning beauty is Keetch Miller - a wonderful family photographer in NY!
You've already met my travel buddy Mikkel Paige, but isn't she adorable?! Love the pink hair!
Funny story: I was just walking around meeting new people and this beauty was standing and talking to a friend in this MAGNIFICENT lighting...I just had to stop and take her portrait. Alison Henrie, thanks for humoring me! Oh and you have got to go check out her website - if you hover over her cartoon selfie at the top, she winks at you! TOO CUTE! :)
And then the best thing ever happened, Christopher arrived!!! YAYYYY!! I was so excited to show him around El Capitan Canyon since he's heard so much about it!
And he got to feed a donkey, so I think he was pretty happy too! Although in this particular photo I think he was mostly concerned about keeping his fingers safe! ;)
The third and final installment of our California trip is coming soon!
