2012 + magical greenhouses

One of my favorite moments of 2012 was a rainy day at the Huntington when my mom and I sought refuge in the magical greenhouse. It forced me to focus and really look. I love (am obsessed with?) greenhouses and plants and I’ve made a career (at least partially) of taking soft, quiet images and still I had to flex something in me to settle in and not just quickly want to move on to the next thing. I was reminded how fleeting all this is. All these minutes that can so easily blur into the next. And so I looked.

I don’t have it in me to write a 2012 recap other than to say that it was a lot. Incredible new friendships, good times, heartbreak, risk taking, seeing my work show up in lots of new places, not having much time to rest, beautiful spaces, karaoke, so many road trips, insomnia, inspiring clients, being in front of the camera and always, instagram. There are so many adventures I went on that I haven’t had a chance to share (a couple that I did). But that’s what 2012 was about. Being out there and not so much on here.

I’m planning a bit more downtime for 2013, making each project count in new ways, expanding and updating my portfolio, offering limited edition prints, taking on new and challenging projects, collaborating and above all looking and noticing what is quiet and important.

You can always follow my adventures on twitter and instagram.
