Since yesterday was #nationalrescuedogday naturally I decided the day after would be the perfect time to post about my rescue dog series. I am capturing 10 women and their rescue pups to bring awareness to adoption over buying. There are 4 slots left to jump on board ladies. 
I am so excited to tell these women’s stories and show you how amazing it is to save a life and have that life love you unconditionally. 
Navajos story is a little different. I found her as a stray on a Navajo reservation as a 6 month ish old puppy. Her ears were filled with ticks and she had a severe infection in her mouth/ teeth from possibly eating rocks. After looking and asking around, it seemed no one owned her. I realized just how bad she had it and decided she was coming home with me. Fast forward to today. She is the most important thing in my life, she brings me so much joy. I honestly couldn’t imagine life without her.  #adoptdontshop

Being a freelance photographer can be stressful in an over saturated field. I find the best way to navigate through the business side is with tools provided by companies like @godaddy. I hope that other people on the same journey can learn that you don’t have to figure out everything on your own! @godaddy has the tools to help you carry out your visions, dreams and passions. #ad #godaddytribe #maketheworldyouwant

Cotton candy skies over the Oregon coast. Been missing life on the road lately. Looks like it’s time for a road trip. Where should I go?

One of my favorite things is picnicking with friends while waiting for the lakes and mountains to melt. In collaboration with @cervezapatagonia #cervezapatagonia #sponsored

Yesterday I went back through some of my photos from Scotland to edit some photos I might have missed. This one caught my eye. My girl @nicolemacinnes checking out the insane view.

Feeling very grateful for the places I’ve seen and excited for the places I’ve yet to see.

Today is #earthday • 
Here are some ways you can reduce your carbon footprint, your plastic waste and have a positive impact on the earth. 
1. Cut out meat and dairy from your diet. This is the easiest way to reduce your carbon footprint. Animal agriculture is the most significant contributing factor to global warming. 
2. Say no to single use plastic. (plastic bags, straws, cups, lids etc.) Bring your own reusable items. Instead of buying a water bottle, refill a reusable water bottle.

3. Do research before traveling/hiking/ camping. Learn the rules and read the signs. If there is a “stay on trail” sign or a “no droning” sign. Follow them. They are there for a reason. Possibly to protect a species of plants or animals that could be negatively impacted. LEAVE NO TRACE. 
4. EDUCATE. Tell your family. Tell your friends. Tell a stranger. SCREAM IT FROM A ROOF TOP. 
We as a human race have completely taken over and our precious Mother Earth is suffering because of it. It is up to us now to change that. I believe we can make a difference if we just try.
