The Shine Project Foundation | 2nd Annual Beach Fun Day | 06.28.18

The Shine Project Foundation Beach Fun Day is one of my most favorite and most fulfilling events that I am blessed to be able to cover each year. Not only do I get to see and work along my sister and family from the west coast, but I get to partake in such a fun event and service. My sister Cheryl and her husband Rob started and currently operate The Shine Project Foundation out of Carlsbad, CA. Their mission is to help bridge the gap between families with children with special needs and local communities by partnering with businesses and organizations to provide special enrichment events and opportunities. They started the inaugural The Shine Project Foundation Beach Fun Day last year in their hometown of Virginia Beach and look to make this an annual event on this coast. This year they teamed up with VB Surf Sessions to help the special needs kids have an amazing surf and beach day in Croatan. Thanks to all the volunteers and participants for making this such a special day!

North End Run Club | Global Running Day | 06.05.18

North End Run Club knows how to do Global Running Day right with one of the largest turnouts to date. The 3-5 mile route had some awesome views including the inlet bridge and new murals throughout the course. Great things happen when you let your mind #runFREE! It also helps with a popup NERC social post run hosted by The Shack. NERC is family and community, get outside, be active, all you have to do is show up.

Finally warm weather! Eugenia and I finally got together after months and months of talking. Our schedules finally coordinated. She’s just an uber talented and upbeat person. We had such an awesome shoot! We just took over a whole sidewalk on Pacific Avenue, cars honking and people walking around us. We even had to stop mid shoot because a random guy wanted a picture with Eugenia. That golden hour was everything for us!

DP - For the Love Of ft. D.R.A.M.

The hometown boys are at it again! Off of DP's latest mixtape "Designer Casket" that dropped today, DP goes off on a slow, grimey, and dark trap track called "For the Love Of". D.R.A.M. balances out the haunting track with his signature singing. My only complaint that the track is too short clocking in at right over 2 minutes; the song is so good that I have to keep it on repeat to hear more, which isn't a bad thing. Dope video too!
