  Lisa  is another treasured member of my  Remote Year  family. She hails from ntario, Canada and has been one of my go-t0 adventure buddies since month one. Aside from being absolutely gorgeous (inside and out) she is an exceedingly kind and thoughtful person. If you need to talk, she listens without judgment and offers useful advice if asked. The world could do with more people like her.
 “She made broken look beautiful and strong look invincible. She walked with the Universe on her shoulders and made it look like a pair of wings.”  ―  Ariana Dancu
Don't be delicate. Be vast and brilliant.
Daughter of the Forest.
 “She was looking into my eyes with that way she had of looking that made you wonder whether she really saw out of her own eyes.

 My cross-country road trip started with a trip to San Francisco and the  GoogleYouTube  headquarters in San Bruno. I spent an entire day with  Jason Mayes  and his phenomenal colleagues and got to take their portraits at various locations around the campus.  The first portrait I’m sharing is of  Angela Barnes . Angela is an Administrative Business Partner at  Google . We connected instantly over our love of  Brooke Shaden Photography  (she’s attended one of Brooke's workshops - jealous!) and fine art, among other things. She was so genuine and fun to be around!

 I'm headed straight for the castle  They wanna make me their queen  And there's an old man sitting on the throne that's saying that I probably shouldn't be so mean.

Her eyes were like mirrors...
 “There are some parts of the world that, once visited, get into your heart and won't go. For me, India is such a place. When I first visited, I was stunned by the richness of the land, by its lush beauty and exotic architecture, by its ability to overload the senses with the pure, concentrated intensity of its colors, smells, tastes, and sounds. It was as if all my life I had been seeing the world in black and white and, when brought face-to-face with India, experienced everything re-rendered in brilliant technicolor.”   ― Keith Bellows  Model:  Tahsin Ali  | MUA:  Erica Eigensee  | Hair:  Inna Milbaugh
