out of thin air


bonjour guys, it’s been a long time. tonight i’m finishing up the last of the profiles on the women from the social media conference this summer in paris. so without further ado, and last (but by no means least), please meet one of the co-hosts and a true soul sister, carina okula.


i profiled carina twice on the blog before we ever got to be friends. i was a big fan when i first set eyes on her magical photos, they’re serene yet vivid and she captivated me completely once we met.


she’s one of those people who sees beauty everywhere and lucky for us she’s willing and able to document it. just her daily life provides images and content that could so easlily get passed by in the hustle of city life, especially when you’re tending to two kids and a hubby. she pulls beauty out of thin air and makes it concrete and tangible, and that takes effort.


i’d like to channel her and have the camera ready at all times, take the time to go home and edit, work with photo programs and learn new techniques. luckily we have big plans to work on projects together including a book and creating a niche for some exclusive photos on the TPA boutique. choosing from her images will be the hardest part.

    Hello, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, superb blog!
