Welcome to my newly created website and blog spot! Here you will find a collection of images I captured and arranged to inspire mine (and hopefully your) continuous drive to explore this beautiful golden state. From summer days on Highway One to the winding roads through Marin county, I have brought my camera with me on all adventures. Although I have endless places to explore on my California bucket list, for now my most treasured places are presented here to share my experience in those beautiful towns. I will be continuously adding trips, adventures, beauty posts, style inspiration and more as I drive the tree lined back roads and seaside highways along the coast. For now, check out and explore all the gorgeous places that have become my favorite weekend getaways, coastal day trips and a local's guides to two amazing towns I have gotten to call home, Santa Barbara and San Francisco. I hope that my photographs and lifestyle posts will inspire you to get out your car keys, pack a picnic, roll the windows down, put on some tunes on and hit the road. Check back for new posts as summer slowly winds down and the start of the fall season begins. Explore my travel section for a virtual trip around the world and browse my lifestyle posts for a dose of daily inspiration. Feel free to contact me with questions, comments, collaboration ideas or if you want to sponsor Sunshine Daydream Photography!
