Megan & Max // Kenneth Village Engagement

Last weekend, I had the honor of shooting an engagement session that was incredibly close to my heart. I photographed their baby shower, their newborn session, their engagement shoot, and will be shooting their wedding in just a few months. Megan, Max, and June bug are like family to me at this point, and we effortlessly [...]

Laguna Engagement // Neda & Nima

“To be fully seen by somebody, then, and be loved anyhow - this is a human offering that can border on miraculous.”   -Elizabeth Gilbert Driving 300 miles roundtrip isn't something I do everyday (or every month, for that matter), but last week it was more than worth it. I had the honor of photographing an [...]

Couples of 2 0 1 5 //

Can I be perfectly honest? I never thought that "couples photography" would be my thing. At. All. I enjoy a good love story as much as the next gal, but I have a low tolerance for cheesy, forced, awkwardly posed prom-style romance. That being said, living in Los Angeles has been an incredibly growing experience for [...]

Stressing through perfectionism, or laughing through mistakes?

Ever since I was little, there was always a voice in my head telling me that whatever I was doing wasn't quite good enough. I don't know exactly where this perfectionism came from, but it haunted me for many years. Whether I was singing, acting, thinking, working, decorating, cooking, or just trying to do life, [...]

I’m Gonna Make This Place Your Home.

The sun has finally gone to bed, much like my fiancé, as he recently left our new home to go back to his place. The moonlight has prepared lovely ambiance for me as I glance out my window, washing the last of a couple dishes in the kitchen. There really is no place like home, [...]

Baking fails {and practicing optimism}

My appetite and taste buds were impatient tonight as I mixed up a new recipe for homemade gluten-free chocolate chunk cookies. If any of you have been following my recipes and cooking adventures since I found out I am gluten intolerant, you've probably noticed that I've come up with some extremely fun, creative, and delicious [...]

Re-Wired Wednesday

Today was the very first day that my wonderful fiance and I went out on the exciting, yet exhausting, search for our first home. Being the young starving artists that we are, and Los Angeles being the expensive city that it is, the hunt was a bit all over the place. Affordable places in the [...]

Happy Half Birthday To Me!!!

Okay, okay...I know that not many people celebrate half birthdays (there are people who don't even celebrate their real birthdays all that much)...but today is no ordinary half birthday. Exactly 6 months ago today, on my 22nd birthday, the love of my life got down on one knee and proposed. Time has gone by so [...]
