Belly Dance Beach Photo Shoot

Time to get glam! Last month I had a new set of belly dance pictures done. Since I have some new costumes and a new hair color (hello purple!), I decided it was time to acquire some photo documentation on both aspects. I grabbed my costumes, my makeup, and the talented photographer, Chris Yetter, and we headed to Sunrise Beach in Gig Harbor, Washington. It was really fun to shoot on the beach, and especially appropriate for the mermaid costume. As we were shooting, we were acquiring some bystanders, but the more the merrier. Although, it was definitely hot outside! Hopefully, I was able to pull off looking fancy and fabulous, rather than hot and sweaty. But I'll let you be the judge of that. Below are some of my favorite shots from the shoot.

Piscos and Pilgrimage in Peru

I'm blessed to have just returned from an amazing 16-day vacation in Peru. My days were filled with touring ancient ruins, sipping on pisco sours, experiencing exotic cultures, and one epic four-day Inca Trail hike. Here are some pictorial highlights from the trip!
