Hiking in Helotes

I'm 110% on board with this relatively recent hiking trend and fully support anyone who wants to hang out with me in a state park. Last weekend's hiking destination was at the Government Canyon State Natural Area in Helotes, TX (just outside of San Antonio.) I was extremely pumped to go hiking here because I heard that there were dinosaur tracks on one of the trails. Unfortunately, the tracks were primarily under water, but that definitely didn't take away from the beautiful scenery. Enjoy some snapshots from my day in Helotes below!

February in Texas

Today is February 13th, 2017 and I would like the record to show that it is currently 78 degrees outside. Honestly, I'm thankful for this gorgeous weather but on the other hand I wouldn't mind the temperature dropping below 60 every once in a while. These past weekends the weather was no different, and I took full advantage of it. Enjoy yet another beautiful session with Karissa!

Sundays and Succulents

This past weekend I rediscovered the San Antonio Botanical Garden. The last time I visited was a few years ago and it was raining (but still stunning.) Three years later and the forecast was identical. Luckily, the rain stopped just in time for a quick shoot on Sunday with the amazing Haley. Unfortunately, the roses weren't in bloom but the other greenery was beyond beautiful.

Self Care is Important

One of my resolutions that I've been trying to work on for the past couple of years is making time for myself. I especially have been trying to treat myself to a relaxing evening (usually during the weekend) of self care at least once a month and it has really helped me start the following week feeling fresh.
