Roadside Stop + Almond Blossom Heaven: Never Stop Exploring

Family & Lifestyle
February 22, 2016

I was driving up to Northern California, as usual, along the 5 freeway. It was an ordinary trip up, Coldplay and Taylor Swift were blasting in the speakers, kombucha was snuggly in the cup holder and [luckily] most all of my photo gear was in tow with me.

It was a perfectly normal trip up, until, it wasn’t.

About halfway through my trip I came across the most wondrous almond blossom trees. Fields upon fields, row upon row. I was so amazed by the first batch and to my great delight crops continued for nearly hundred miles! I scouted my perfect spot to stop and went crazy.

The setting was perfect; the sun hid under billowy clouds of blue, the light winds carried just enough of the flowers off the trees and into the air and the stillness of the afternoon embraced me in comfort as I was surrounded by literally thousands of little buds of pink and white. I am honestly still wondering if it really happened.

As a forewarning, below are twenty photos of just almond blossom trees in different ways.

I’m in a few.

That’s about it.

I’m totally cool with it, hope you are too.

headshots.
i work on a television show called 'new girl'. these are my friends + their faces. i took and shot these during my day at work since we were on location. it's fun to challenge myself and stay sharp. the backdrops weren't my favorite, mainly beige marble walls, doors that were really reflective + a courtyard in the back of this specific hotel we were at. i was pretty pleased with how creative we got. my favorites were taken in front of just a plain brown door with some glass windows. i shoot headshots from time to time. [find out more] teri b photography // los angeles, studio city headshot photographer [contact ...

[sunrise] Somewhere in Dallas: a girl + her horse
A girl and her horse. I was thrilled to shoot a horse for the first time (professionally!)- what a thrill. These creatures are so big and so majestic and so unpredictably lovely. We braved the 29 degree Texas morning and headed out to the stables. The grass had a crisp layer of frost and the pond was waking up to a stream of misty fog. The sun rose just in time to start the day and warm our frozen fingers and toes. Reba, the horse, was happy to take a morning trot around the pen. We entertained and were able to pose her with the help of carrots and peppermint oat treats- which I recovered from my jeans while unpacking last week. S ...
