If you are a Minnesotan, and you have never escaped winter for a warm-weather escape…just don’t. The depression that hits upon your arctic return is enough to drive you insane. Since I went down the tropical vacation rabbit hole years ago, I find myself looking for any excuse to leave town between Jan-March. This February, I went to a photography meet-up called Seniors Ignite in classy San Diego. Such an amazing time hanging out so many talented senior photographers…not to mention long lunches by the pool. But the best part of our trip was getting to photograph some awesome senior models. These girls (and a few guys) are from all over the country, and absolutely love being in front of the camera~which made photographing them such a joy!
