👇🏻 How to Catch Yosemite’s Firefall 🔥
A swing at the edge of the world. I had been wanting to go to this under the radar spot for almost five years now. Feels good to have finally made it.

Witnessed the firefall for the second time in my life. Always a crazy sight to see in front of your own eyes, especially because you’re never sure if the conditions will line up well enough for it to appear until it pretty much just starts happening. Hoping to catch it again tomorrow, fingers all the way crossed. #firefall2019

I had always wanted to try one of those photos where you throw boiling water into the air and, if it's cold enough outside, it'll freeze instantly. Since it's -25 degrees in Finnish Lapland, I had finally found myself in cold enough weather to give it a go. I used my @kleankanteen TK Pro for the shoot since it keeps liquids super hot for 24 hours, and it worked out perfectly! •
P.S. I’m taking over the @kleankanteen account later today! Check out their story soon for a behind the scenes look on my trip to Finnish Lapland. #KleanAmbassador#BringYourOwn

Moody evenings at Milford, one of my favorite places in the world. Thinking I’m going to need to make New Zealand trips an annual thing, just can’t stay away.

We only got one incredible sunset during our Lapland trip. Luckily I was on top of the fell (basically as close to mountains as Finland has) and caught it with the best overlooking views of the area. The sunset colors were so defined and bright, like Mother Nature had turned the saturation slider up to 100, it was hard to believe this could be real life.
Thank you to @breaklevi for hosting us during our Levi leg of the trip.

This was the very first sunset adventure I went on after I quit my 9 to 5 job to try out travel photography full time. It was one of the most defining moments of my life, to see an incredible sunset on a Tuesday no less, and realizing that now I could do this every single day. I figured I was just taking a taking a three month break from work and then I’d go back and get another “real job” again. Well, it’s been six months now and I’m still out here chasing sunsets. Go full force after your dreams guys. You won’t regret it. #WHPPortraitOutdoors#WHPUpToMe
Cabins on the lake are cool and all, but a cabin that’s IN the lake? Staying here would be a next level weekend getaway.

Just a little puppy love. Will you be my Valentine? 🐶💙

We were driving through southern Oregon on our way to another redwood grove, and stumbled upon this gorgeous white bridge in the middle of the forest. The moment it came into view, we knew we had to pull over and shoot it.
Shout out to @dani_the_explorer for sharing her drone with me to get this shot after mine committed suicide on this trip 😑

So grateful I finally got to check dog sledding with huskies off my travel bucket list. This was definitely the ultimate way to sightsee in this gorgeous area, even if it was -25 degrees outside. @laplandsafaris

Our very first stop on our New Zealand camper van trip was to go see the lupines. When we arrived at this lake surrounded by the flowers, @yann__b showed up and within 20 minutes of meeting him we did this killer portrait shoot. With my modeling background from a long time ago, it’s always a treat to get back in front of the lens.
