a mile away  that is how far you can be and still see Shelly’s smile.  it’s the most amazing ray of sunshine  we needed a little something more serious for her shoot and portfolio  but trust me, that smile can knock down buildings  (also, the cigarettes were only used for the effect. calm down) 

I love when I can say that I made a good friend during a shoot.  I’ve met a lot of people during my time as a photographer and I can honestly say a lot of them have became really close friends. Parker is one of those people.  We clicked due to our wanderlust. We love […]

Right now…it seems like the world is full of hate.  and it is scary.  Today I blog something full of love.  My best friends this year brought life into this world. And I know for a fact, they will only teach their children to love unconditionally. Not matter who you are or what you believe […]

I travel more than most. It is only the second month of 2016 and I’ve only spent a total of 7 days at my house in Los Angeles. (I love my life).  Because of these trips I need to travel smart and light. And [THE WEEKENDER DUFFLE from Whipping Post] is one of my favorite […]

Noah!!!! This has been a long time coming. Yes yes I know I am behind. Deal with it. At least you know you have some awesome shoots you have yet to see from this summer.  Anywho. Did a quick lifestyle and fashion shoot with Noah a few months back. You would never guess it, but […]

I love working with James.  He’s got one of those smiles that can just make you feel at ease. It never ever feels like a shoot with him. He always comes over with a suitcase full of awesome outfits and we just have FUN.  James is currently killing it here in Los Angeles as a […]

Social Media is a wonderful thing. I’ve met the most incredible people through it.  Mathew is one of those people.  [Art by Mat Chavez] I saw his artwork once on Tumblr and LOVED it. So I started to follow him. He followed me back. Whats funny is that we both started following each other around […]

When I was in high school, I had to get community hours for being in National Honor Society. My best friend Evy told me that she was going to go help out at the Children’s Clinic at a local church.  A clinic? At a church? yes.  [For 42 years, St. Andrew’s Children’s Clinic has provided free, specialized […]
