CHASING THE SUN

☾✩
I’m absolutely smitten with this dress from Gypsy05! As soon as I received it I knew I needed to track down a lush green forest to surround myself with. Unfortunately, since California is in a major drought, lush forests aren’t easy to come by, especially in Santa Barbara. Paulina and I definitely got our daily work out in, trekking down (and up) a huge hill, chasing the sunlight as it disappeared behind a wave of fog, just to get some trees in the background of our photos. Then, as we were about to give up on the gloomy lighting, a patch in the clouds opened up and let in the most beautiful flood of sunlight.

The last few photos in this series are from that moment. The lighting was so beautiful, it felt like the sky opened up just for us. I live for moments like those; when nature begins to astound you with so much beauty you have to take moment to really let it sink in and thank the universe.
