Hawaii / Day 2

*There is tasteful, artful nudity on this post. If this offends you, skip this one!*

Day 2 in Hawaii….. Emzy and Caleigh and I did the Kea’au middle ridge hike on the west side of O’ahu. This was a little bit of a challenge for me, seeing that Charleston SC is a big flat plane….. but I was game for it. We had some issues finding the trail, but after Emzy climbed up the big scary look out, was found the path through a fence and into the brush. We scrambled through some tall grass and up over some rocks….out onto a HUGE rock ridge. Looking over the edge was 100000 feet fall to the death. This was an empowering moment for me. I was SO EXCITED. I felt no fear. I’ve been a little baby about heights for my whole life, crying about climbing down lighthouses and refusing to take glass elevators. In June last year, I took the plummet and sky dived for the first time. I wanted to face my fear, and it turns out it worked! I was able to cross over with confidence and enjoyed it all. After we got to the other side, we started our naked hike and photoshoots. I love photographing people in their true form, and being a nudist, it just felt right. We had a beautiful picnic and basked in the sunshine. Truly a perfect day.  

Hawaii / Day One

Well I made it folks! I’ve been wanting to visit my dear friend and fellow artist Caleigh Bird and I finally did it! I made it to Hawaii, O’ahu and I’m taking y’all along for the ride. The first day we had an epic hike up around the Pill Box on Lanikai where we took photos, hooped and I almost fell off the ridge! LOL Whoopsie…. We ended up having lunch at Makapu’u beach, giggled, and did some yoga. Tonight I’m off to a fire flow jam…. until the next time….
