Can you imagine being a duck in the wild? Birds have evolved in interesting ways to avoid predation from other species. First they learned how to fly - aside from the ostrich and the emu, who just got big and learned how to kick really hard. Some birds went a step further and learned how to swim. Ducks and other aquatic birds can put both air and water between themselves and the thing that is trying to eat them. Now there is always the chance that the thing trying to eat them comes from under the water, such as a shark or an alligator. Scary right? Overall ducks seem to do alright though with their wings and their webbed feet.⠀ .⠀ #Duck #Ducks #DucksOfInstagram #ducky #ducktales #duckpond #birdwatching #birdwatchingphotography #birdwatchers #birdwatcher #birdwatch #birdsofinstagram #birdie #norcal #cali #explorecalifornia #southbay #bayarea #norcal #getoutside #naturelover #peaceinnature #environmentalism #outside #poetryinmotion #poetry #explorers #explorethewild #explorenature #explorerpoet
Since I’m not sharing Holiday Photos from clients until after Christmas cards are sent out (or they’ve shared them already themselves), here’s some of my own little loves 😍 • • • • • #kimberlysaariphotography #orangecountyfamilyphotography #holidayphotos #fall #fallfamilyphotos #besttimeoftheyear #pinetrees #flannels #orangecountyphotographer #family #brotherandsister #bestfriends #love #blueyes #blueeyesanddimplechins #orangecounty #anaheim #irvine #newportbeach #huntingtonbeach #tustin #longbeach #explorecalifornia #canon #eveningsession #fall #siblinglove
Went to my first fancy pants Sonoma vineyard today. I passed this place yesterday on my way into town and wanted to stop but it was getting late, so I made it my first stop today. I think I liked the gardens more than the wine, but I'm a savage...and they were really nice gardens...so I guess take that with a grain of salt. . . . #ferraricarano #drycreekvalley #healdsburg #californiawinecountry #sonomacounty #sonomavineyards #winetasting #pacificcoastroadtrip #pch #pacificcoasthighway #hwy101 #hwy1 #coastroadtrip #californiacoast #californiaroadtrip #explorecalifornia #discovercalifornia #californiatrip #visitcalifornia #usaroadtrip #roadtripusa #usroadtrip #roadtripamerica #roadtripper #bucketlistadventures #bucketlisttrip #readyforadventure
Always take the scenic route.
We can see little glimpses of fall starting to peak through. #SimplySonoma
Missing all this fun adventure already and this amazing woman! 🏜👯‍♀️ I loved exploring a whole part of California I’d never been to before in all my life even though I just live 2 short hours from Joshua Tree! I could say that India and I are “lucky” to have been treated to this retreat but that would be a complete lie. We worked hard to EARN this trip! Both of our teams & businesses are growing and so we’re collaborating for next year’s retreat to spoil our coaches that earn it by the end of the year! 🤸🏻‍♀️⛰ It’s not too late to join LoveLife Tribe this year and earn a spot on next year’s retreat either 😉 Is traveling & connecting with other self-driven women something that lights you up?! Those are two things that seriously feed my soul ✨💕 Can’t wait to see who’ll be there next year 🤗 #BeHereNextYear #TeamRetreat #LoveLifeTribe

Heck of a Tuesday 🍂 _____________ I've been itching to get outside on a little adventure the past few weeks. I had some time this afternoon to hop out and do some exploring, and let me telllllll you, that was just what I needed in my life. . Could I have worn a fancy maxi dress and really made this photo IG worthy? Well, sure. But then I'd have to go out and buy a maxi dress. So there you have some regular old hiking pants, wool socks pulled up over the bottoms, and an old paint-stained shirt that I just got blood on from a bloody nose. . Last thing: we'll be on IG stories tomorrow for #whiskeywednesday , answering your travel questions and...drinking whiskey 🤷🏼‍♀️

We had this hot spring all to ourselves for an hour before the nearby “local” walked down to do his laundry in the spring. He told us about his days at Woodstock and how he’s been living off blm land ever since. Man I thought I was a little hippie but dayum this guy blew me outta the water ✌🏼 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #sierranevadas #hotsprings #visitcalifornia #travel #travelnurse #leavenotrace #optoutside #getoutandexplore #getoutstayout #WhyIHike #adventureisoutthere #womenwhohike #girlswhohike #california #amongthewild #socal #explorecalifornia #unitedoutside #staywild #campeveryday #protectourparks #findyourpark #protectourplanet #fujifilmxt10 #greettheoutdoors
A couple of weeks ago, I stayed in a Yurt for the first time and it's safe to say that I absolutely loooooved it! Although I genuinely love roughing it when I go camping, this experience was kind of like a super fancy tent (with a heater, an extremely soft bed and a cool outdoor shower..) Have you ever stayed in something like this? If so, tell me about it!
The fact that there’s a mountain in the Sierras called Chocolate Peak (and that I have now climbed it) makes me so happy. Such a great hike with beautiful views and super fun rock scrambling. So glad @mamabear_and_cubs invited me to join her and @sandee33m on this adventure 🍫⛰
Here's a little beautiful California coast for your Tuesday! I'm finishing up Jamie and Hannah's engagement shoot and reliving our amazing luck with this gorgeous weather. Seriously, every time I go to Point Reyes, it's foggy. We got sun!
Me to guy at wine tasting bar: "I don't understand half of what you just said, but it all sounded really good, so I guess go ahead and pour." With 425-ish wineries in Sonoma County alone it can be a little overwhelming knowing where to go. However after one or two tastings it all starts to taste the same to me and my memory starts getting...fuzzy. So I've decided to just stop at the wineries with the prettiest views and forget about trying to find a life changing vintage, since odds are I won't remember the name of it tomorrow anyway. Heck, if I can remember my own name in a couple hours I'll be doing good. . . . #justkiddingmom #notawinesnob #winetasting #healdsburg #drycreekwineries #californiawinecountry #sonomacounty #sonomavineyards #pacificcoastroadtrip #pch #pacificcoasthighway #hwy101 #hwy1 #coastroadtrip #californiacoast #californiaroadtrip #explorecalifornia #discovercalifornia #californiatrip #visitcalifornia #usaroadtrip #roadtripusa #usroadtrip #roadtripamerica #roadtripper #bucketlistadventures #bucketlisttrip #readyforadventure

Desert appreciation post. . . . . . From now on I’m turning this page in to a more professional endeavor. So keep an eye out for some of my portrait work.
This photo was taken about a month ago. I said in a recent post I’m a procrastinator... and a lot of things that we plan to do don’t end up happening until later than we intended. . For example, we send out a ‘monthly’ email and corresponding blog post with updates from our travels and the lessons we’re learning along the way. . So about 6 weeks after our last ‘monthly’ email and blog, we have another one being sent out tomorrow. And even though it’s a bit late, we’re super proud of the messages and photography we’re putting out there - knowing that quality work shouldn’t be rushed, and everything happens in the time and space it’s meant to. . If you want to get in on our email list and check out our most recent blog post, Check the link in the profile 💙⚡️👋🏼 . . . . . . . . . #30daysoftruthtelling #truthtelling #authenticity #liveauthentically #findyourjoy #followyourpassion #findyourpurpose #dharma #thedharmacollective #creativeentrepreneur #soulfulsunday #soulful_moments #soulfulentrepreneur #abundancemindset #personalgrowth #personalgrowthjourney #goodvibetribe #positivevibetribe #explorecalifornia #bigsur #slocal #visitsandiego #inspiredaily #inspiredbythis #travelblog #travelbloggers

This was our sky while trying to shoot a time lapse of the setting sun in the Mojave desert last night. Unfortunately, I had to shoot this photo with my iPhone since our camera was already in use. The only edits made was for the foreground. The sky was this brilliant!

Road trips hold a special place in my heart, the freedom felt by exploring the unknown and exposure to new places that sometimes feel like new worlds. Shot along Route 395, under 3 hours from home and I had no idea this kind of beauty existed there. . . . . #fallcolors #route395 #explorecalifornia #wildcalifornia #northerncalifornia #thenorcalcollective #wanderlust #stayandwander #welivetoexplore #getoutstayout #wondermore #exploremore #travelersquad #awakethesoul #neverstopexploring #exploreobserveshare #visualsoflife #theoutbound #roamearth #roamtocreate #girloutdoor #the_folknature #folkscenery #hippomag #stademagazine #solarcollective #nikond3000
In case you missed it: The Women's Fall Trail Day on September 29, 2018 was filled with laughter, loads of sand, sweat, and tasty snacks. Many thanks to everyone for maintaining a thoughtful space for female-identifying and non-binary folks and learning a little bit about building and maintaining trails. 💚 #MotivationMonday (Photo by Jaimie Baxter)

Yosemite is my favorite any time any season! This time we did Cathedral lakes hike, 8 miles round-trip to see both lakes, I'll take you ~3-5 hours. Lower Cathedral Lake with elevation:  9,290 feet (2,830 meters) Upper Cathedral Lake with elevation:  9,600 feet (2,925 meters) Some advice: for the first time while hiking in Yosemite we experienced mild altitude sickness! Be advised and take it slow, breath deep and often. Paid Bass lake a visit and hiked around Glacier Point, both are breathing and no crowds this time of the year ;) #yousemite #yosemitenationalpark #california #californication #hiking #nature #explorecalifornia #naturevibes
