Women’s March Los Angeles 2017

Posted by on Jan 24, 2017 in Blog | Comments Off

It was time to get out the protest last weekend at the Women’s March LA (January 21, 2017). Such a great day of camaraderie, passion and celebration of what brings us together: love. Great to hang with my amiga Tania Possick as we marched the streets of DTLA in one of the biggest U.S. protests in history. #thefutureisfemale #fiestabanphoto

Dia de los Muertos 2016

Posted by on Nov 2, 2016 in Blog | Comments Off

Historic Olvera Street never disappoints with its annual Day Of The Dead festival. Celebrating death as both the beginning and end of our journey here on earth, it is also a remembrance to those those whom came before–to give us strength when the weight of the world feels too burdensome. Be safe out there everyone! And thanks Jennie Lagunas and Tania Possick for coming with (such beauties!)

Hiking @Switzer Falls

Posted by on Nov 2, 2016 in Blog | Comments Off

A little day hike in the Angeles Crest National Forest’s Switzer Falls with my dear friend Ashley Berry made for a tutorial in peace, harmony, quietude and a crash course in photography. Plus, met some great hiking buddies along the way!

Thanks so much to Gigi Garcia for having me at Hollywood’s own Ford Theater for their Divine Vibrations Of India: Melody, Rhythm & Dance presented by The Music Circle. Such an amazing night! Gigi helped put on this fantastic show, including maestro santoor player Pundit Tarun Bhattacharya and luminary violinist Aishu Venkataraman along with dancer Sanchita Battacharya for a night of classical and improvised Indian music.

Omg, so many cutie-pie kids over at the lovely and talented duo Rose Rossi and Christoff Von Kooning for their beautiful daughter Nova’s second birthday. (Pretty sure the adults were having most of the fun though!) Thanks for having me!

Posted by on Sep 10, 2016 in Blog | Comments Off

Thanks so much the Devuono-Powell/Scott-Key clan for having me at their 10 year anniversary celebration at Camp & Sons in amazing Mendocino County. Such a beautiful way to celebrate these two and the whole village they inspire! Thanks for the wine, drinks, dancing, swimming and of course CHARADES!! (And sorry, I needed to finish a black and white Fuji 100 ISO roll before I switched to my trusty Ektar 100 speed color!)

Josh And Scott Tie The Knot (The Pre-Party)

Posted by on Sep 7, 2016 in Blog | Comments Off

Words can’t even express the gratitude I have for being part of the wedding between Joshua Conover and Scott Brinkerhoff in Guerneville over this Labor Day weekend. The Great Event was just an incredible display of love, kindness, generosity, fabulousness and maybe a kiki or two. Stay tuned from pics from the official wedding photographer, but here’s some shots from the pre-party.
