Cancun, Mexico|2013-2014

A few weeks ago I was enjoying the warm sun and beautiful location of Cancun! I was lucky enough to tag along with my friend and her family to Mexico! I am so happy I decided to go. I’ve never been to Cancun and it was amazing. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend my 22nd birthday and the new year. From swimming with the dolphins, doing photo shoots every other day, late night snapchats, getting drunk off of diet coke and sprite, celebrating my 22nd birthday and late night runs to the gas station for candy, this was one of the best memories I will ever have. I love traveling and want to see the world and different cultures there are. Here is a video I made of some highlights from the trip! Below I have posted some photos of our trip also!

When we arrived in Cancun, our taxi driver took us to the most amazing taco place ever! I am not a huge fan of Mexican food but this changed my mind!

We went to church and not a single member knew English except the missionaries. One of them was from Utah!IMG_3518 IMG_3521 IMG_3523 IMG_3530 IMG_3540 IMG_3541 IMG_3542 IMG_3550 IMG_3552 IMG_3553 IMG_3555 IMG_3560 IMG_3563 IMG_3892 IMG_3900

The next couple of days were stormy. Which was great because we did all of the warm, sunshine activities the past three days! This day we headed to the market! I also found myself playing soccer with the los ninos! I loved that even we didn’t understand each other we could all still connect somehow. IMG_4952 IMG_4969 IMG_4983

The last day we went to this way nice mall, we then had our last supper.IMG_5448 IMG_5458 IMG_5465

The morning that we were leaving. Hope and I decided to write messages in a bottle and toss it out to the deep blue. I hope someone finds it and adds us on Instagram haha.IMG_5476 IMG_5480 IMG_5481 IMG_5483 IMG_5490 IMG_5499 IMG_5500 IMG_5503 IMG_5504


Dark Beauty Beach

Recently I took a vacation to Cancun, Mexico! I was able to tag along with my best friend/roommate/model’s family 🙂 I had to take advantage of the BEAUTIFUL place and having a model with me. We did three shoots this trip and it was an adventure for all of them! I’ll be posting each shoot on here along with a blog post about the fun things we did in Mexico!

This shoot was the first shoot we did there. We were lucky that we had this beautiful beach right outside where we stayed. This probably was my favorite shoot we did out of the 3. By the time we were doing our shoots, everyone staying at the hotel probably thought we were so weird. It was fun to see everyone watching us shoot and we were probably a story to be told on their vacation!

The dress was something I have had for a while now. I found it at a thrift store and finally I had a reason to shoot with it! Hope and I did her hair and makeup.
