One of Marissa and I's favorite adventure spots around Santa Clarita is the Angeles National Forest. It is country roads and endless trees. It reminds us of back home in Portland where everything is green, the water is sweet, and the air is fresh. :) So yesterday we were itching to experiment with some photo techniques so we rolled out to the forest.

Unfortunately though, as many of you know, there was a huge fire earlier this summer (Sand Fire) which burned down hundreds of acres of the forest. We expected green, and got black, but nothing shuts down a photoshoot for us so we decided to work even harder to make beauty from the ashes. :) Hope you enjoy!
