Small waves and rainy days…

There’s more rain in our forecast! I love the rain, especially since California is always in need of a good soaking. Rain in So Cal also has its downsides – crazy drivers, dirty pollutants and trash in the ocean and on the beaches and more potholes for me to navigate on my way to work (sigh)

There’s more rain in for forecast this week as we’re in another atmospheric river weather event right now. If you’ve not yet followed It’s been providing us with some drought relief and our mountains with stacks of snow over the past weeks and looks set to continue in the forecast for a little while longer. I really enjoy reading the report by Nathan Todd Cool over on the Swellwatch on Surfer – really interesting stuff. Take a look here for a rundown of the latest So Cal surf forecast https://forecasts.surfer.com https://forecasts.surfer.com

In anticipation of another solid few days of no surfing and no photos, I suited up and headed out for a morning session with some of my favorite girl crew. Some small waves at Grandview which were super fun. Condition stayed beautifully clean all morning and we were joined by a pod of playful dolphins.

Here’s to some sunnier days and more swell, and more photography sessions real soon – Ashleigh

When it rains….you’ll find me rolling around Encinitas with HER WAVES – Surf inspired clothing designed for women by women.

It’s been a pretty wintery winter here in San Diego which has firmly put the brakes on a fair few days of surf photography. Instead of despairing at the dirty water, driving rain and blown out conditions I’ve taken some time to meet up and shoot with the awesome lady shredder behind an Encinitas emerging apparel company – Her Waves.

Femininity with an adventurous edge. Surf inspired clothing designed for women by women “

http://www.herwaves.com

HER WAVES is a female run, female driven company that fusions together a love of surfing, skateboarding and community friendships – forget the butt shots, social stigmas and high end fashion that so often engulfs the world of women’s board sports . If you ‘love to hate’ major surf labels, struggle to find your niche when it comes to wardrobe choices and want something a little sassy and unique – look no further than HER WAVES. Their line of tees and tanks (coming soon) are printed on eco-conscious, luxuriously soft materials and come in a variety of beautiful designs and colors that will compliment every outfit in your closet. Working closely with other female artists, skaters, surfers and women who are passionate about their sport and lifestyle – I’m excited to see this awesome little company grow over the coming months.

As a photographer and small business owner I understand that high quality, professional images for your company (no matter how big or small) is at the heart of great branding and advertising for your product. I spent some time the past week with Jennifer from HER WAVES learning about her brand, her love of surfing/skateboarding and the passions that drive her company. She’s an incredible and talented visionary and I am super excited to work with her in creating content for her website and social pages!

Go grab yourself an awesome tee over at www.herwaves.com and support your fellow female shredders! They post awesome and inspiring stuff over on their instagram account too @herwavesco
