Hayley // Morning song

As a photographer, winter can be a bit challenging. Golden hour is at 2:45pm. It's freezing. Everything is dead. And usually there is nasty snow kicked on the side of the roads, not the pretty fluffy kind before the plows come, but that mound of dirt covered ice that never seems to melt from the mall parking lot. Luckily, we haven't had much snow (I hate driving in the snow!) - so inspiration is still rolling in. Stuck in that winter rut? Get up right now and go shoot something. GO! Now! Sometimes we all need a kick in the pants and a good shot to get the creative juices flowing.

I'm dying to visit the Pacific Northwest, where the landscapes are unbelievable and the Redwoods covered in snow give the word "majestic" a run for its money. Alas, I'm here, in Massachusetts. So Hayley & I set off on an early morning adventure to the farm, then up north to New Hampshire. We just drove and stopped every mile or two, jumped out of the car and walked around! I've taken that drive dozens of times to the flea market in Hollis, and we found waterfalls and rivers and farms and the most beautiful places that I've always passed by. It was nice to just slow down and look at what was there. It was beautiful! And so was Hayley <3
