Italy / Puglia by Emily Cook

Oh Italy!! You have my heart forever. 

My beautiful Mama and I (Sarah) had the incredible opportunity to attend a yoga and feminine wholeness workshop led by the amazing Morgan Day Cecil! The best part... this retreat was set in the stunning region of southern Italy. We spent our mornings doing yoga at our Airbnb in Ceglie Messapica, and our afternoons exploring the other towns of Puglia! We wandered ancient streets, ate more than our share of gelato, and swam in the Adriatic Sea. Here's just a glimpse of our time..

Seven Days of Portraits: Day 1 {salem, oregon portrait photographer} by Emily Cook

Hi Hi!!
We thought it would be super fun to do seven days of portraits on our blog! Each day, we will showcase one of our favorite portraits, & tell you why we love it!

To kick off day 1, a portrait of our very own, Sarah Bond. This photo was taken at dusk in Terrebonne, Oregon. Sarah, her husband Ben, and myself made a drive to one of our favorite adventure locations, Smith Rock State Park for their one year anniversary shoot! If you haven't taken the trip before, please do! It makes for such a great day trip!

I chose this photo for our first favorite portrait, because of how warm the colors are as the sun was falling, and how perfectly tousled Sarah's hair was after a few hours shooting in the wind! There is adventure and love in her eyes, and just looking at this photo takes me right back to the base of Smith Rock.
