This shoot was done by my good friend, Michael Newsted. Michael is extremely talented. His eye for the world is unique and gorgeous. If you do not follow him on Instagram I suggest changing that. In the last year I have seen him grow and mold as a creative and this shoot styled by Jonathan Grant and featuring Mae Laubhan is a perfect example. How gorgeous and raw are these images. I cannot even handle the amount of awesome in this.

See more of this shoot and Michael’s work on his blog. He is one to watch my friends and one person who inspires me so much everyday.

Hello! I’m Megan Gilger,

A strong believer that nature and the seasons are our greatest teachers. We live on a hill in Leelanau County, Michigan just a stone’s throw from Lake Michigan. This land we are responsible for is where we are focused on building a life around the seasons and intention. We spend our days here building a regenerative model of living and focusing our garden on native plants and intensive polyculture planting styles. My focus is less on self-sufficiency and more on community-sufficiency through how we grow and connect through the seasons.
