Moments not spent in traffic : an LA series pt. 2

I had always heard about Abbot Kinney in La but had never gone until recently and let me tell ya, it was just as hip as they say. All kinds of Vegan restaurants and expensive boutiques,  everything you’d expect in LA. But I thoroughly enjoyed spending the day here  and captured some great sights like this mobile flower shop! Had brunch at The Butcher’s Daughter and it was AMAZING. Would recommend 10/10 especially for those of you that are lactose intolerant because they offer all dairy free 🙂

Sweet serendipity. 

Sweet serendipity. 

Serendipity is defined as the act of finding something great without looking for it. I can say that most of the great things I have in my life have found their way to me by some powerful force of the universe and it always amazes me the way things work out. I hope your year is filled with serendipity ❤️
Don’t these two just make you want to be in love?! Chemistry is hard to achieve both in real life and in front of the camera but Courtney  and Dean killed it.

Moments not spent in traffic: an LA series. 

Captured this shot while walking to the beach in Southern California and my sweet Courtney obliged my modeling request, as always. Everything about this screams LA hip and I love it. I value having a diverse portfolio and I’m happy to have the opportunity to travel for my craft. Courtney is my most willing model so I know i can always count on her. Plus, the camera loves her pretty face!

Mali-boos. 

Flew to Southern California to collaborate with my beautiful cousin (pictured above) and have a photo shoot with some friends. The results were beyond glorious and I will be sharing them in a series.

My cousin is an incredible makeup artist and not to mention a ray of sunshine. I am thankful to have her by my side as we grow in our creative careers. Team work makes the dream work, baby! Follow her work here!

New year, better me.

Today is the day: my camera has arrived and I officially move into the realm of professional (??) photography. Excited for a new journey and a new risk! I don’t know what the future holds but life has yet to deviate from the wild and unpredictable. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this picture of my friend Shanni because she’s such a stunner, capturing her beauty is so easy. **Be warned, I will 99% force you to be my model if we are together.

Telling the story.

Processed with VSCO with c8 presetI believe every picture tells a story. In my work, I strive to capture candid real-life moments. Sneak peeks into the best times I experience. I want to hold these memories dearly and being able to look back brings me a great sense of comfort. For example, this was a perfect day reuniting with my college friends after months of being apart. We drank mimosas, danced in the rain and got scouted for a TV show. It is these magical days I want to showcase here.
