As Grant, Olivia and I have been making our way up the coast, we’ve experienced such varying vibes and energies in the different places we’ve visited thus far. Started in Los Angeles, stopped at the quirky Madonna Inn, then spent a few days in San Francisco…which, while it is a mellow city for the most part, was pretty much nonstop party time (catching up with friends and family while visiting my old stomping grounds). My favorite stop so far was Brookings, Oregon, where we took these photos. Stayed in the perfect condo on a cliff overlooking the most gorgeous beach I’ve ever seen.

The purpose of this trip for me was to take some time to do a little self-reflection, and channel that creative energy that, truth be told, I’ve struggled with tapping into recently living in big, bad New York City. The day we shot these photos (and more!), we all shut off our phones, wandered, and bonded over our unique passions…which, while they vary slightly between the three of us, blend together oh so well. Sometimes you just need a little quiet time with talented and innovative people to bring out that inspiration again.

About halfway through our adventure, but it’s already been pretty life changing. Can’t wait to continue, and share all of the cool shit we’ve been working on.

    I would like to express my gratitude for your kind-heartedness supporting individuals who require help on your concern. Your real commitment to passing the solution all through was wonderfully important and has regularly empowered men and women like me to get to their dreams. Your amazing warm and helpful help can mean much to me and extremely more to my fellow workers. Best wishes; from all of us.

    i honestly cannot describe with words how much those pictures effect me!
    they are so beautiful and this term seems to poor to characterize them

    These photos are breathtaking, Laura! So hauntingly beautiful— and you look equal parts happy and pensive. I’m so happy to hear that you’re taking the time to self-reflect and just breathe!

    Thank you, Stephanie!! So appreciate the comment / kind words. I think I have been so caught up in the fast paced craziness that is NYC that I forgot how important it is to stop and take a breath. We all deserve a break! :) Hope your November is going well!! xoxo
