Hey there! I'm Lindsay.
I'm a Florida based photographer, wellness + live-your-best-life-lifestyle advocate, mama, and beach bum. I'm originally from the Adirondack Mountains in Upstate NY, and moved to the beach a few years ago (after dreaming about it for a lifetime!).
How'd I get here? Believe it or not my husband and I took a three day vacation to Santa Rosa Beach, FL, and after that, quit our jobs, donated our stuff, put the house on the market, and became Floridians. We felt that life was too short to live by default, and there's never a guarantee that there will be a tomorrow.
Regardless of what I am shooting, I love creating images that brighten people's day. My passion for nature and adventurous living saturates my work. I don't like to speak in absolutes, but I mainly shoot outdoors and in natural light. Adventuring through a state park, and capturing people organically is my jam.
Since becoming a mom, I treasure nothing more than the photos I have of my son's life (he just turned 3!). I can sit down, and revisit so many special moments. I love being able to provide families with their own memories to treasure for generations to come.
I love challenging my creativity, and using my camera to make people stop and feel.
With a focus on mindful living, holistic self-care, organic and natural practices, and total mind + body wellness, my blog is the space that I share inspiration and tips to empower others to take control and practice living their happiest and healthiest lives. I use my expert knowledge in psychology, holistic health, and yoga and blend it with my personal experience to create meaningful content for you that supports your journey. I encourage nourishing your mind and body with non-toxic foods and products, mindful practices such as yoga and meditation, getting out in nature and exploring as often as possible, and above all, learning how to think in a way that enhances your life. Life is too short and unpredictable to not embrace the gift that each day is. I don't take life too seriously, and I encourage others to do the same. My goal is that you always walk away with something of benefit to your life.
My personal wellness practices + lifestyle:
- minimal living to allow my time to go towards what I value most (we live in 600 square feet and want to downsize)
- reducing stress daily
- yoga and mindfulness practices
- organic and non-toxic self-care products
- eating organic whole foods that are minimally processed most of the time
- green juice, smoothies + açaí bowls (+ organic coffee in the morning because let's be real)
- swimming in the ocean and being barefoot as much as possible
- lots of time with the people I love most, which includes snuggling with my dogs
- being outside with my camera. It is a form of meditation for me.
- attempting to sleep more. I'm a night owl at heart with a 3 year old who feels the same.
I like: beach life, dogs, dolphins, manatees!!!, warm ocean water, flip-flops, pastels, fresh air, SUP boards, long boarding, yoga, SUP yoga, skiing, sushi, poke bowls, burritos, guacamole, chocolate, organic beauty and oils, thunderstorms, the moon, vintage Airstreams and cars, hammocks, palm trees, taking personal responsibility, unconditional self-acceptance, and unicorns. :)
