I camped with three dudes in Big Sur. It was way out of my comfort zone and a grand adventure! We listened to the rain pour down all night, woke up to deer surrounding our (otherwise deserted) campsite, ran around the beach at dawn, ordered one of everything at Big Sur Bakery, explored a foggy redwood forest, and continued on our way up the coast.

I first learned about the Secret Sisters in Garden & Gun Magazine a couple years ago — I was drawn in by their gorgeous album cover and then floored when I heard their buttery-smooth, angelic voices (so beautiful it hurts!).

After spontaneously buying Iron & Wine tickets outside the venue the night of the show, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the Secret Sisters were opening! Their voices sounded even better in person and they had such personality and sass, I couldn’t help but mention to Blake how much I would love to photograph them. He encouraged me to reach out to them and I did, not expecting to hear back. Lydia responded almost immediately saying they’d love to take some photos and they’d be back in a few months touring with Nickelcreek. So that is the story of how I found myself wandering around Charleston one afternoon with Lydia, Laura, and their tour manager Jay. They were so sweet and funny, teased each other (they are actual sisters), and were up for anything despite their uncomfortable shoes and the fact that they had to play a show for thousands of people that night.

(They just came out with a new album — listen here and fall in love!)

A few shots from our drive along the Oregon coast back in March, after a restless night in an A-frame where our 3am wakeup call was a mouse falling from the ceiling. Unable to sleep we got on the road bright and early, stopping for breakfast at a diner that promised “the best breakfast in the county.” I’m pretty sure it was the only breakfast in the county, but it was good. We then paid five dollars to drive through the Chandelier tree (twice), stopped to see the Sea Lion Caves (“America’s Largest!”) and ended seven hours up the coast at a hotel in Lincoln City. We ordered she-crab soup and a bottle of wine, sat in front of the big windows and watched the sunset. The next morning we took our watery coffee down to the ocean — Blake discovered some tide pools with starfish and other colorful creatures, and then got stranded on a rock as the tide quickly came in.
