When you can’t “do it all” ALL the time // 

   Photo credit: my amazing friend, Chachie McDonald.  I have been learning that whenever we say yes to something, we are saying no to something else. Every single choice we make, consciously or not, is still engrained with intention. What a beautiful and chaotic season this has been for me. While some may claim that…

Spicy Ramen Recipe //

Even after living in the same home in the same neighborhood for almost 4 years, it never ceases to surprise me with something I haven’t experienced. My craving for real, homemade ramen combined with my current girl crush on the amazing Candice Kumai lead me just a mile away to the Asian market. In the…

Less Stuff + More Life //

The Pink House //

Just when I think I can’t fall more in love with this city, something pink happens. These pink houses in Culver City are slated to be demolished in a couple weeks, so @themostfamousartist and curator @impermanent_art made this project happen. It is truly amazing to live in a place like Los Angeles where artists are always…

The Homebody, episode 2 // Meet The Plants

The Homebody Giveaway //

The Homebody has truly been years in the making for me. Growing up, I moved around A LOT, and when I moved to Los Angeles 8 years ago, it was really important for me to create my own sense of belonging. I noticed that many people my age were living on a budget and living…

Vanessa & Nikkolas // Beverly Hills Wedding

   2 years ago, Nikkolas met the love of his life (Vanessa). 6 months ago, he realized it. Yesterday, they got married…and I photographed every moment. I basically felt like I was in an old Hollywood film the entire day.  The day began at her home in Korea Town — with lovely details, magical morning…

Jennifer & David // Ontario Wedding

   Happy two month anniversary to this amazing married couple! I can’t believe it’s already been a little over two months since I shot Jennifer & David’s wedding. These newlyweds are both Irish, and the pops of green throughout their big day just give me life. I was just finishing up curating and sending their…
