Lately it’s been quiet here on the blog.

If you’ve been following along on Instagram, you’ll know I’ve been in LA, California making some of my dreams come true.

The dream was to hang out with my dear friend Kim – to adventure & capture it all with my camera – to experience the golden hour on the beach…  and most of all, for Kim & I with the help of Myriam & Alisha, was to bring a group of creative souls together… a retreat of sorts – to GATHER, play, be creative and share our gifts.

It was all we hoped it would be and so much more – the ladies that gathered with Kim & I in both sessions were amazing… each full of stories, experience, openness, kindness and plenty of creativity… we had so much fun taking photos of props and each other, alongside the conversations and the friendships formed.

There’s something so incredible about the energy that surrounds people doing what they love together – sharing their skills, asking & answering questions, playing with their art and experimenting… and doing it with grace & in harmony.

Thank you to everyone who helped make it so memorable – behind the scenes and by being ‘all in’ during the experience. It was magic.

I’m sure there will be more stories, photos & a film to come as I process it all. I’ve got a little sleep to catch up on first!.

But for now, here’s a little flavour.
