Four years ago I hopped on a plane to Costa Rica. It was my first trip to this beautiful country and my first surf trip. Little did I know, this week long vacation full of surfing and pouring rain was that “road diverged in a yellow wood”. A year later I was back on a plane to Costa Rica, this time to live full time in Tamarindo. Fast forward three years later, I am in awe and disbelief.

Samba to the Sea has always been about following my dreams and living life to the fullest. What has resulted is being able to surf everyday, a growing photography business (with photo sessions for a glowing Kara, Justin, and their baby bump this past week), and over 7,000 postcards/ cards/ mini cards sold with Samba to the Sea Designs. Oh what a couple years it has been! Thank you to my supporters, critiques, and disbelievers; Y’all have made me stronger and wiser.
Note to self: Never be late for the magic ball to drop.

Glowing and stunning.
The rain held off and Mother Nature gave us some magic to get this reflection that we had been crossing our fingers for!!

The Ocean is Calling
The Sea sings my name
I’ll be your light, your match, your burning sun
Quicker than a ray of light she’s flying
Ride into the sunset
