Behind the Scenes at the Balloon Shoot
A whole bunch of kids gathered at Crissy Field to help me create a new header photo for my social media profiles.
Travel Journal: Europe on a Holga
Shooting crisp, vibrant digital photos for clients day in and day out sometimes makes me crave a more raw, dark, vibe-y feel. I like watching indie films and listening to indie music, finding inspiration in the sense of being on the edge of something, admiring the unpolished and the perfectly flawed.
Whenever I travel, I take some plastic cameras along with experimental films like the Lomo Redscale film stock I used in my Holga in this series of photos in Europe over the course of the past several months. These images are a pretty stark contrast to the bright family portraits I’ve been taking in California lately. Their moodiness reflects some of that indie feel I admire in other mediums.

Tongva Park, located just across the street from the Santa Monica Pier, opened towards the end of 2013. The park itself has amazing energy, and it’s been a major source of inspiration for me since I’ve been in California.
Week in Photos: Colorado Springs
This week, I’ve been settling into my new lifestyle in Los Angeles, and editing photos I took along my trip across the U.S. One of the amazing things I got to do on that journey was rest and rejuvenate with my sister, her husband, and their kids in Colorado Springs.
Week in Photos: Winter Fun
This past week, I’ve been editing some awesome cold-weather family photos – who says winter isn’t a great time for portraits?
