A few weeks ago, I began supporting @stillkickinco in their PR efforts. In such a short period of time, I’ve seen how hard the people behind this non-profit work + I feel privileged to be even a tiny part of it . Tonight, I get the opportunity to watch this organization’s founder, the fantastically funny + frank @noraborealis, host a live @ttfapodcast recording + I can’t wait to soak up all the energy of the amazing peeps I know will be in that audience. Peeps who just want to support great people doing kick ass things . I encourage you to visit + buy some gear + help someone who really needs it . @lmwenner + @lindsi + @jturg + @hannahmross... it’s already been such a privilege getting to work with you + I can’t wait for all that’s ahead! #stillkickin 💚


It’s been two months and I can safely say I’m ready for Hawaiian honeymoon round ✌🏼 . I miss the beauty + warmth + kindness + love of this island every day. Trying to bring it North every chance I get, even during the months where it’s just like ❄️💨😳 . This shot was from one of my favorite days, a catamaran + snorkel tour with @kauai_seatours . . . #livehi #kauai #islandlife #islandlife #onlyinhawaii #hawaii #alohalifestyle #alohalifestyle #capturehawaii #travelphotography #hawaiiphotographer #instagood #napalicoast #waimeabay #nikon #shotonnikon at Nā Pali Coast State Park


Lately, lots of people have been asking what I’m up to in my career, so just wanted to share a little update . A month ago, I launched my own PR + Communications, LLC called May Ott Communications (Megan Ayotte.. get it?) My goal is to work with clients to help tell their brand story effectively through content strategy + social media + media relations. So far, I’ve had the pleasure of working with amazing companies like @karenmorrismillinery + @stillkickinco + more❣️ . Taking this big, awesome, scary step helps me prioritize my happiness first + allows me to bring more creativity into my life through passions like cooking (hello, @paleoinspo!) + photography + oh those pesky little things like self care and rest . While I still don’t know exactly what this will all turn into, my anxiety is down + my energy is up, so that’s gotta count for something right!? . I’m excited to share more of my passions with you + continue meeting more and more powerhouse entrepreneurs as I keep growing on this new path . A special thanks to people like @lindsi + @jaclynshik who have offered such powerful support during this exciting time. And, of course, the most love to my husband @drew.m.ayotte for just being everything . Happy Monday, let’s crush. 👊🏼 at Minneapolis, Minnesota

Another favorite from our North Shore trip in Winter 2016. Proof that this place is magical all year round. . . . #onlyinmn #exploremn #capturemn #captureminnesota #onlyinminnesota #exploreminnesota #midwestisbest #naturephotography #capturedonnikon #natureisbeautiful at North Shore, Minnesota


That winter air is back. The kind that finds its way to your bones. Trying to see the beauty in it and getting excited for the season where nothing sounds better than the couch, @smartwool socks and red wine . These chills remind me of our trip to the North Shore two years ago in February. One of my first adventures with my @nikon. Ice glazed everything + it was effing freezing but also effing gorgeous. . . . #onlyinmn #northshore #onlyinminnesota #exploreminnesota #exploremn #northshore #goingnorth #midwestisbest #frozentundra #exploremidwest #duluth #shotonnikon #photographybeginner #instagood #minnesotalife at North Shore, Minnesota


Last night, I had my first photography class as part of a month-long program. Currently, I’m going through archives of photos I’ve captured in the last couple years and started editing, like this one from the Canadian Rockies. As I build my own business, I’m so excited to bring more fuel to my passion for taking pictures . Whether it’s a business, hobby, a fitness goal or anything else, investing yourself in something can feel overwhelming. My past few weeks have been filled with lots of highs + lots of self-doubt, but at the end of each day I try and feel proud for taking another step towards things that make me feel 💯✨👊🏼 Hope you’ll do the same! . . . #instagood #explorebanff #banffnationalpark #banffbound #banff #explorecanada #canadaianrockies #shotonnikon #nikon1aw1 #peytolake #peytolakelookout #mountains #glacierblue #pinetrees #landscapephotography #instagood #travelphotography #travelcanada at Peyto Lake

When you had plans for a productive Saturday morning, but wake up to see all your wedding photos came in, you adjust the plan to not leave the couch all day and relive all the amazing memories. 〰 📸: @mattlien


Stepping back a few weeks to warmer fall days when it was still light and bright at 6pm and we enjoyed a patio pizza at @nelsonstonebarn. 〰 As daylight savings approaches and hibernation season commences, I'm doing my best to prioritize wellness and self-care with lots of warm liquids, layers, @alchemy_365 + @corepoweryoga and rest. Hope you'll do the same, loves! 🍂 . . . #pizzafarm #wisconsinphotographer #onlyinwisconsin #capturewi #capturewisconsin #onlyinmn #exploreminnesota #explorewi #explorewisconsin #midwest #midwestphotographer #capturedonnikon #pumpkin #minnesotafall #minnesotaautumn #wisconsinfall #wisconsinautumn #nelsonstonebarn at The Stone Barn


Happy birthday to my husband, life partner, best friend. Thanks for helping me see the good in each and every day (and also for being so damn cute!) ❤️✨


Traded the beach & bathing suits for the lake & flannel. 〰 . . . #onlyinmn #exploreminnesota #minnstagramers #instagood #nobaddays #exploremn #travelwi #travelwisconsin #wi at Lake Pepin


Still feeling the vibes from this ✨ place and ready to keep bringing the aloha culture everywhere I go. Weekend, here we come. 〰 . . . #instagood #igdaily #instalove #nobaddays #visithawaii #fromwhereistand #beach #travel #instatravel


As we transition from marrying and honeymooning to married life, one highlight of the past three weeks stands out. @kategrahek got us the greatest wedding gift, letters from our friends and family that Drew and I enjoyed reading over the past two weeks. 〰 While the post-wedding blues are real, it's hard to be too sad when we have support from such an incredible community, our "redwoods" to come home to. ❤️


Until next time, sweet garden island. Time to head home and start married life with my best friend. Planning to bring some of this aloha spirit back with us! 🌴🍍🍹☀️ at Kauai
