Calvin Baby


I can’t believe it’s the end of the year already! 2017 was definitely filled with great opportunities and I’m looking forward to seeing what 2018 has in store. I know I haven’t been very good at blogging consistently this year but am planning to change that. If there are any specific topics you’d like to see me write about, let me know in a comment below or message me on Instagram πŸ˜‰

Before we officially wrap this year up, I wanted to quickly share one of my favorite photo series ‘Calvin Baby‘ done in 2017. David and I had been wanting to do a fun shoot out in the sand dunes for the longest time, but it was scorching hot in the desert when we moved in April. A couple months ago, we finally made it out there and everything totally worked out in our favor! Nobody there, beautiful clouds were out, and the weather was perfect. There was a bit of wind but it was the perfect amount to get that nice movement in my hair.

In the new year, I aim to do more fashion shoots for fun like this. Don’t get me wrong — it’s always a good time shooting content for brands. But, to avoid burn out, it’s also important to do things for yourself too. This shoot definitely got my creative juices flowing!

I’ve learned that getting the perfect shot entails more than just putting together a nice outfit. This look was very simple and I didn’t put too much effort into styling, but the location and colors made the photos turn out so well. As a major homebody, it’s hard for me to travel because I get exhausted so damn easily. It actually frustrates me to no end because I’ll envy others who take phenomenal shots in unseen places while I sit on my couch wishing that was my life. With that said, I definitely want to set aside some travel next year to explore new terrains and hopefully get some of those incredible shots that I admired from afar in 2017. All about getting out of my comfort zone… slowly but surely!

Bring it on, 2018.

Do you have any New Year’s Resolutions? What do you look forward to most in 2018?

  1. I missed your posts babe! So glad you were able to squeeze one more in before 2018. I love this series of photos and would love to see you do more travel posts in the new year! πŸ™‚

  2. Happy new year Sharon! It’s been wonderful following along your journey and I look forward to seeing more from you in 2018. More beauty posts please! Your skin is always so flawless and your makeup always on point!

    1. Cheers to 2018 Denise! Thank you for being so supportive and for all the love this year. I really appreciate it and will do my best to create more beauty posts in 2018 πŸ™‚ Stay tuned!!

  3. Wow, this photo shoot is definitely amazing, that desert makes for such a beautiful landscape! I love the simplicity and beauty of these! Happy 2018!!

    1. Thanks Nicole! This area of the desert is actually like an hour thirty minutes from us but totally worth the drive because it’s so scenic when there are clouds out and weather is good! πŸ™‚ Happy New Year darling!

  4. Love the desert for your post. You look incredible. Can’t believe 2017 is over -Happy New Year -looking forward to 2018.


  5. Ok, If I was straight I’d kick David out like in a second. You look absolutely fantastic in #mycalvins and the idea for the photo shoot is brilliant. As for New Years resolutions I never make any as I make things happen straight away instead. That’s just my view on things and doesn’t mean resolutions are wrong, but they’re just not for me. Happy New Year babe!
    Love, Thomas

    1. Lol! You’re the funniest Thomas! Thanks for all the love <3 I totally agree -- I didn't really set formal resolutions this year either. I just have a few things I'd like to make happen πŸ˜‰ lol!

  6. Wow Sharon, I’m so in love with this shoot! Definitely worth the wait. I’m also looking forward to more creative shoots, I did some ones I’m proud of in the summer but it’s been harder to travel far in the cold. Happy New year!

    1. Thank you love! I look forward to seeing more of your creative shoots this year. I totally agree with you that it’s much harder to travel far in the cold. I really want to get some cool shots in the snow but every time we go somewhere snowy I just want to stay in and cuddle up in bed LOL.

  7. I have been seriously loving editorial style photos like these lately. I want to do some of my own soon and did one last week with Brandon that was an absolute blast! I can’t wait to see more of what you have in store for the new year. Your content is always A+!

  8. These photos are EVERYTHING!!! YOU look amazing and Calvin Klein is making a nice comeback of their classic style! My resolution is to take some more ME time this year!

  9. You look incredible Sharon!! I would have totally bought the Calvin if I saw this as an ad. I love these creative shoots where you don’t have to worry about pleasing the brand or create specific look for content. It looks so natural and I hope to see more in 2018.

    1. Awww Sheree you’re so sweet! Thank you so much — means a lot to me <3 I totally agree with you and hope that I'll do more creative shoots to avoid burnout. Happy new year!

  10. Happy New Year!! These shots are INCREDIBLE! You make those Calvin Klein pieces look sooo much better with your posing and the photography πŸ™‚ I have so many resolutions to count haha but I am already getting started and super stoked for this year! Wishing you all the best in 2018 !

  11. Happy new year Sharon!!! I absolutely love this pics and post. You should definitely bee the new model of CK for this year.
    You look so gorgeous babe and you have the perfect body and skin.


    1. Hi Laura, thank you for your kindness! I appreciate it. This is probably going to sound bad but I actually don’t really work out consistently πŸ™ I really should though LOL. I have a gym membership that’s been only used once this year but had been unused for maybe 2-3 months end of 2017. I go on occasional hikes with my boyfriend and when I do go to the gym I do focused workouts (i.e. abs, inner thighs, or wherever I want to see results). I don’t like cardio! Lol
