One of the highlights of alt happened when we all finally left the hotel and did some thrifting and sight seeing in salt lake. In the midst of our adventures, the weather started to change from dark and wet and stormy to freezing and snowing and white. I’ve never seen a city go from zero to snow before. It was magical. I took a lot of photos. And I also forgot my jacket at the hotel.

flowers + polaroids

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

Took a break over thanksgiving weekend and slowed down. Ended up splurging on these incredible flowers from cookbook and trying them on all over the house. Then I tested out my old polaroid (buy film here). Turns out this one doesn’t work. But I still like the results. More like paintings than pictures.

I shot for Sunset Magazine! Here’s an outtake from the feature that will be in the october issue. Excited to share the rest of the images when the story is out. Yay!

california the beautiful

Wednesday, July 13th, 2011

I went through a bunch of old pictures recently and ran across these photos from a helicopter ride over LA a couple of years back. We flew with Elliott’s uncle from LA over the angeles crest range to lancaster and then followed the 14 back down to the 405. It reminds me why I love california. Even though I was terrified the whole time that I was going to die (the hot weather made for a bumpy ride). There’s just nothing like it.

peek at: at your leisure #3

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

Jon over at Happy Mundane is one of the most talented people I know so I love to see what he puts into his labor of love, At Your Leisure. The quarterly zine is out with a fresh issue and it is not to be missed! Fresh color palettes, loads of plants and Jonathan’s eye for style and design make it a knock out. We collaborated to shoot Beth Katz’s home in LA last winter and it was one of the best shoots–Jon is a great art director with a clear vision for what he wants but with room for my input and on-the-fly decisions.

(I also shot Tracy’s House for Jon)

Keep up to date with At Your Leisure on facebook.

the commute

Thursday, June 23rd, 2011

The commute got pretty last night while I was talking with one of my oldest friends, Karen, who lives up north. She was driving, too, so we sent each other pictures of where we were.

I’m totally blushing over the feature that Victoria at sfgirlbybay put up about my photo work today. It’s always a surprise to find out people I admire are fans of my work, too. And it’s great to see so many projects side by side. Some of the work featured is from my shoots with Emily Henderson, the hero image is from a project with Jonathan Lo’s At Your Leisure (I shot Tracy’ House and it’s still one of my all time favorites). I’ve been so lucky to get to shoot so many great spaces.

Victoria also posted some pics of my apartment last week (right here) and gets to unveil the rest of it soon (which explains my being coy about it here.)

You can see more of my work in my portfolio.

rue issue 3

Thursday, February 3rd, 2011

Last month I got a chance to meet Leila from Be Inspired PR for a shoot for the latest issue of Rue. It was great fun styling with Anne, Rue’s Executive Editor, and Carissa of JL Designs who’s a genius with flowers.

The shoot was at Leila’s sweet office which you can see more in this month’s issue of Rue along with her experience making over her office space. Thanks Ladies, had a great time with you!

lacma + eggleston

Wednesday, January 12th, 2011

William Eggleston is one of my favorite photographers. His snap-shot-cultural-documentation-sometimes-sloppy-very-saturated prints have inspired me for a long time. The show at lacma was sort of underwhelming, but his books are a good source of inspiration.

Mae Mae Paperie

Friday, October 8th, 2010

One of the highlights of working freelance is that every job I do is an adventure at a new location with, normally, people I don’t know. After I shot the cover for Rue of Woodson and Rummerfield they had a last minute shoot that I was able to jump on board for. And it was so worth it. I got to meet Megan at Mae Mae Paperie and Summer at Grey Likes Weddings and we spent the day styling the Mae Mae Studio, shooting the great line of stationery that you can get as a free download through Rue (on page 59), shooting Megan for the feature and eating really good pizza. (Look, this is us!).

Then, as though that wasn’t a nice enough experience, I got this impeccably wrapped little package in the mail from Megan filled with a thoughtful note and little presents from Mae Mae.

Thanks again, Megan!

And Happy Weekend Everyone.
