it was 2:30pm and 80 degree outside on a tuesday in california. four girls and 5 hours to drive. all we needed was the open air, blue sky, red lipstick, a few scarves, a lot of wind, and some really good music. jenn was gracious enough to drive all of us from la to vegas and pull over anytime i saw something interesting. heidi and smiles provided the best music and i took it all in. it was a good day. the skies are the bluest of blues in california and the sun was warmer that i remembered. if only we had more hours in the day to capture the beauty that most people overlook. days like these remind me of how lucky i am to have amazing and talented friends all the country.

I was extremely excited to be a part of such a wild and sweet night. Michelle Edgement, a ridiculously talented creative in Brooklyn, asked me to photograph her beautiful designs and styling for an engagement party at the lovely Wythe Hotel. She and Patina Vintage coupled together to create an absolutely beautiful night for a lovely couple and their closest friends and families. I had an amazing time photographing their work and they had an amazing time turning this said engagement party into a SURPRISE WEDDING! What a joyous occasion. Visit Brooklyn Bride for more photos and love! xo
amanda and bobby shared their vows and love with their friends and family in a little vineyard in washington crossing, pa. it was a day filled with love and warmth under the sun and chilly celebrations under the stars. it was the perfect day in late fall october to welcome the beginning of winter amongst us. i had the pleasure of photographing with levi stolove, an amazing photographer out of brooklyn, ny. enjoy!

its funny how time slips by and all of a sudden your personal “to do” list keeps growing. i finally decided today to take a personal day to work on personal projects…something i have not done in a while. working from home has it’s pros and cons… you must be disciplined and have excellent time management skills. having three full time jobs, i have perfected both of those skills and many more. today, i decided to forgo being disciplined and managing my time. eight months ago, chris and i took a magical trip to france. we went to paris, the countryside, and the coast. i photographed every minute of every day and it has taken me eight months to appreciate the beauty of what we experienced. why did it take so long? i am not sure…maybe the generalities of life got in the way. upon realizing that, i decided that one day a week i am going to set aside all of my work and focus on something strictly for me…so i can keep influencing my habits of being a working and loving artist. i am sharing a few from my polaroid series of france. each individual photograph is open, completely imperfect, and vulnerable. it is a representation of everything i love about life.
fall is my favorite season and sunday’s are my favorite day. spending a fall sunday with an amazing family filled with love and joy for their new son, oliver, is beyond words. thank you for sharing your happiness with me and letting me share with the world your bliss.
moving is something i am pretty familiar with, having moved four times in the past year. but this time it is different. this time it feels real, it doesn’t give me the “floating in life” feeling like the other ones. i feel as though it is time to settle, well, for at least a year, and then maybe move on to the next adventure. change is something that has always played a large part of my life. i am not sure what i would do without change…without the perception of knowing exactly what permanent means. there is something comfortable about being steady, but there is also something very uncomfortable about it to me. the meaning of settling is something i am completely unfamiliar with. however, it’s current meaning to me are these photos. displaying memories is very organic to me and makes me feel slightly vulnerable to the outside world . for now, settling means bringing memories with you to the next place until that next place becomes a memory. each day brings a new experience, a new meaning to life. now if only i can be so lucky to capture the everyday happenings that comprise the actual meaning of life. (these memories have been captured by myself and jesse+whitney chamberlin of our labor of love)
