M.A.S. Photography – 8.21

Along with travel my other favorite type of photography is fashion/portrait. I started photography a few years ago out of a need to learn for my blog. Blogging is so visual so I knew I needed to learn a thing or two about taking a pretty picture so I could create content I was proud of. What I didn’t know is that the photography would eventually take precedence over the blog. I really enjoy photography. All aspects of it. From meeting the people, capturing the moment, and the entire process of editing. I feel so badly that I have not been updating the blog a lot this summer but I have really been trying to focus on taking my photography to the next level. And when you want to get good at something, sacrifices must be made. However, I do think I have captured enough photos over the past few months to last this blog a lifetime! So stay tuned on those 🙂

I am constantly blasting my travel photos on the blog and Instagram but rarely show my other side of the business. So with their permission I have created a very small (comparatively speaking) round-up of photos I have shot in the last few months! I hope to continue to shoot these beautiful women and to continue to grow this side of my photography business! I find the entire process so fulfilling!

Sconset Bluff Walk

Take a bike from the center of town (about 10 miles) or car to this beautiful area of Nantucket Island – Siasconset! I will share more about Siasconset later as today’s post is dedicated to the Bluff Walk! We were actually told about this walk from our chef who is a native of Nantucket. He recommended one of the things we must do is walk the Bluff and I am glad he did! The Bluff Walk is a “foot path only” public walk. One of Nantuckets best kept secrets (and maybe not there for long because of erosion so hurry and go). This path leads you through wild rose bushes and between private gardens. To your left are magnificent homes with the most incredibly manicured lawns and to your right are the best views of the Atlantic from anywhere on the Island.  The path is very personal – at times you are walking through people’s backyards. This 40 minute walk is a must for anyone visiting Nantucket! It is still pretty undiscovered so passing people is rare! Take your time, enjoy the walk, and soak in an unforgettable experience. Just remember to go to the bathroom before starting your journey (I learned this the hard way).

Living Proof Humidty Shield

After months of traveling with different climates, shampoos, and waters my hair is completely out of whack. I can’t even begin to describe the texture of what it is now. Possibly somewhere between straw and frizz. I had no idea the importance of knowing what kind of water is in which city. For example, in Dallas we have pretty soft water (great for skin and hair), in Paris the water was so hard you couldn’t help but take three minute showers to avoid pruning and dry hair, and in Nantucket the water was soft (which meant oily hair). Through all of these hair trials and tribulations I turned to one product I knew would handle the mess I was dealing with – Living Proof Humidity Shield. Before trying this product I read the reviews, which were mixed. Some said it made their hair feel weighted down, while others called it the, “miracle they had been waiting for.” I tend to agree with the latter. I actually used it when my hair was wet as a semi dry-shampoo situation and then sprayed it again when my hair was dry. It not only left my hair feeling amazing but it also tamed the crazy and lasted for days. And let me tell you, when you are dealing with unfamiliar circumstances the less you have to wash the better!

I am not sure if you battle the same hair fiascos when traveling but if you do this is one weapon I recommend throwing in your bags! I can’t explain the difference it made while plane hopping!
