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.

Concert Vibes: Valley Shine at The Satellite in SilverLake 3/4/16
I love shooting a little Indie Folk Band by the name of Valley Shine. They returned to the stage last night for a show at The Satellite, a music staple to the Silverlake area. The lighting was perfect in many ways, shifting slightly as the set did. These were shot on Leica M240 (first time with concerts!) and Canon 5dMarkiii. Check out more of Valley Shine   See you at the next! -xo

rebecca + brett: maternity session at the enchanting matador beach in malibu
Rebecca is a talented interior designer + wedding planner. We met planning our own styled shoots almost a year ago. Her and her hubby Brett are expecting their first son + I was so happy to shoot a few photos on a quiet morning at Matador State Park on the Malibu Coast. This little hidden gem in Malibu is somewhere I’ve always wanted to shoot and this morning proved to be perfect. The rushing water, crashing waves, hints of cool and golden blue from the sky set the scene and I let these two take it away. Show-offs. I adore this session and can't wait for the little one to arrive!                    I shoot Lifestyle + ...

Film Diaries: Left Bank Styled Shoot
I did this shoot with some amazing and crazy talented businesses in the Los Angeles area. The theme was a Parisian Left Bank shoot with a strong organic, gypsy feel. The grainy, rich color of the film soothes the soul- well, my soul at any rate! Sunset made a better setting for the mood. These are just a few little pieces and details. Several more photos can be seen in a future (pending!) publication :) Vendors involved: Terroir Design Aria Dresses Cecilia Boccara headpiece Butter Shoppe Bakery Pigsty Floral Mignon Chocolate Oak Canyon Ranch Makeup by Juli Teri B Photography Brooke Lacey   &n ...
