I have been feeling a strong need to escape my regular routine and getaway to the forest for a while and last weekend I finally made some time to go hiking near Muir Woods. Along with enjoying the fresh air, beautiful trees and plants, I couldn't resist doing a dark forest photoshoot. Hiking on a semi-popular trail in this outfit got me some looks from fellow nature lovers, but the photos Jayson took are certainly worth that.
It was an unusually windy day and the fresh breeze coming through the trees was phenomenal. Another highlight was having a picnic in the middle of a forest after the photoshoot - it's my new favorite thing.
