  • When I go to places like Zion or Bryce Canyon there’s a part of me that wants to take photos of everything I see around, but there’s always the other part, that just wants to quietly enjoy it and take it all in without any cameras and social media. That’s why I always secretly feel happy at times when I don’t get any service on my getaways. Is there anybody like me out there?

  • HEY HI WELCOME!
I’m so happy you’re here! With all the new faces around here, I figured an introduction is due!

I’m Sullivan, but all who know me call me Sulli😊

I’m 20 years old, I love queso and Ben Rector, and I travel taking photos of couples ooey gooey in love🤪

When I was younger, I knew 2 things... 1) I wanted to travel the world, and 2) I was good at creative things. Then my passion for photography grew.

Out of high school I had 0 desire or direction for college. I didn’t feel any need to go. And I firmly believe that was for a reason... 2 weeks before my freshman semester of college, the Lord opened a door. He opened the door for me to kick off my own photography business as an intern for a photographer! Which, for me, meant not even going to college (crazy right!?). But wow it’s cool how God opens doors the way He does! And now, 2 years later, i’m a full time traveling photographer! It honestly doesn’t feel real at times.

Taking that leap of not going to college is definitely a scary one! But when you’re stepping out on the path God provided, He’ll continue to provide along that path. We just have to keep taking steps.

All to say, God is SO good and I’m PUMPED you’re here!
HOLLA if this resonated with you!

  • Summer has always had a special place in my heart —- my birthday kicks off summertime, some of my favorite memories in my life have been spent around a campfire with friends/family, and there have been special camping trips spent with my family during the summer. As Liam grows up, I hope to share these same moments with him. Getting outside, exploring, getting muddy, eating s’mores, late night giggles trying to stay quiet during quiet hours 😂🖤 These photos give me a warmth in my heart that reminds me of summer, and I really really like that. 🖤

  • One of 4 gigantic statues at Buddha's Enlightenment. This is located in what feels like the middle of nowhere.  It is truly remarkable to learn that this is the creation of one lone monk.  From what I can gather, this Vietnam-native has created some of the largest Buddhist statues in the country.  He began building the statues in 1981 to represent the four stages of Buddha’s life, going from birth to enlightenment. This spot is part of our members section.  The link to our article can be found in our stories right now. #hiddensandiego

  • Guys. I was just thinking how crazy it is that it’s almost September. Like where did the year go?? As I reflect back I’m not only in awe with how much I’ve grown and learned but I’m also filled with SO much gratitude. I’m so lucky to have figured out how to make my passion into a career. It’s all 1,075 of you that have helped me get here. I’m seriously SO grateful for that and I’m SO excited to see where the next year and next 6 years will take me. Sooo thanks for hanging out with me in the mean time haha. It’s much appreciated💛

  • I think this is the only time I've photographed a couple doing this pose 🥰 its so important that you do your own thing during a shoot. Yeah, it's nice to have a few of your traditional poses but it's also really sweet to capture portraits of you and your boo in your own element 🌼

  • ↠ When you were out of your comfort zone?
For me, in particular, it's almost two years since I live out of my comfort zone.
I don't think it's a bad thing, on the contrary, it's a necessary thing. Living in another country is a constant challenge, it is a different language, although sometimes I forget how to spell a few words in Portuguese haha, a different culture from mine and the most importantly, a cuisine completely different from being the same as my country.
If I regret it? Not even a little. If it's all wonderful? Far from being. But what I lived and I am living in the moment I could never imagine happening if I had continued living in my comfort zone.
So far the balance is positive and with faith, I believe in what the future awaits me.
Be grateful for the opportunities and keep pointing north.

↠ Quando você esteve fora da sua zona de conforto?
Para mim, em particular, tem quase dois anos que eu vivo fora da minha zona de conforto.
Não acredito que seja algo ruim, pelo contrário, é algo necessário. Morar em outro país é um desafio constante, é uma língua diferente, apesar de as vezes eu esquecer como se escreve algumas palavras em português haha, uma cultura distante da minha e o mais importante, uma culinária longe de ser igual ao do meu país.
Se eu me arrependo? Nem um pouco. Se é tudo maravilhoso? Longe de ser. Mas o que eu vivi e estou vivendo no momento eu jamais poderia imaginar de acontecer se eu tivesse continuado vivendo na minha zona de conforto.
Até agora o saldo é positivo e com muita fé continuo acreditando naquilo que o futuro me espera.
Agradecer pelas oportunidades e continuar apotando para o norte.  #35mm

  • She sent me pictures of different dresses to wear and when I saw this one I knew it would be perfect. So summery, flowy, and effortless. 
This photo makes me want to take a stroll in the park right now. 😝 When was the last time you went on a walk? Want to go with me?! Let's go hike the Whittier trails! 😁

Side note: reason I’m cheesing so hard in this picture is because I had just ate a fire breakfast at a spot called Eight AM. Hit it up if you find yourself in SF 🤤

  • You’ve come so far // I’m always so worried about what I could do better or how I can do more. But then I remember I’ve come so far in just 2 years of owning my own small business. 
Looking back I met my main goal last year of breaking out of my introvert shell. I wanted to meet as many people, creatives and business owners as I could and build a genuine relationship with them. I think I did just that. I was terrified of talking to other people! And sometimes I still feel like that but that feeling definitely isn’t as strong as it use to be. 
Definitely proud to say that I’ve achieved a personal goal that will absolutely benefit my business. 
What are you proud of today?

  • Shout out to my husband for working hard so that I can work from home! I went shopping at @calicollektive with stylist @stylingbyjanae today! She put together some amazing outfits for our shoot on Sunday! Having a stylist to work with is super helpful! It takes some of the stress off your shoulders when coordinating everything else. Can’t wait to shoot @thegala_downtown with @hey_itslinds and @irinabarol !
