White Sands National Monument

Sometimes you just need to load up your friends, drive 26 hours over the course of two days and shoot in a change of scenery. I had been dying to shoot in this location for years and finally got around to making it happen, and it definitely did not disappoint. This place really is like stepping onto another planet, the sand is as white as snow and cool to the touch, thank goodness. Copper and Birch designed a beautiful garden style bouquet which could not have been more perfect and I used a clearance dress from NastyGal that I dyed (what was supposed to be black but ended up being a bluish greenish gray?) and my wonderful model altered. Shooting for myself and taking time to really focus on creativity has helped me so much overall in my business and I’m super stoked about all the shoots I have for the future!
