Tickled Pink.

Warby Parker is surely going to turn me into one of those
crazy old ladies wearing a wacky new pair of glasses every day of the week.

How to resist??

Check out this new pair of pink glasses I got an email about today.
And $50 of your purchase donated to the Susan Komen Foundation.

What Are YOU Chasing?

The HOLIDAYS are coming.
My 'real job' is on an indefinite hold.
I'm looking for something new, of course.
But also looking to shoot.
Because...let's be honest...I love it.

Anyone interested in family photos, baby pics, engagement snaps, a 'Knock, Knock' invasion, holiday cards, beauty shots, product shots, boudoir shots, head shots, pet shots, wedding shots, food shots, whatevershots - please send an email to Because we are fresh out of the gate, rates are low and negotiable. Available in Los Angeles but also looking to possibly book some sessions in Minnesota.

See this entire Christmas Shoot HERE.

Midwest - hope you're loving fall rolling in.
Cali - (try to) stay cool.

*Ari and I booked our first wedding for next July. We are so excited and feel incredibly honored. It's time to kick the fear to the curb and get this show on the road.

Wed at The Ranch.

I tried to take as snap away as much as I could last weekend but found myself so busy with friends and fun and love that it was hard to remember to even pick up that camera, at times.
Thankfully, Ari covered for me. Good man.

What a lovely wedding and, yes I'll say it once more, amazing couple.

Let's hit the rewind button, please?

Back from a big wedding weekend in AZ.
The Eagan, MN family was in full effect.
And it was, again, TOO hard to say goodbye.
What a beautiful bride. Beautiful groom.
Perfect ceremony. INCREDIBLE details.
Bees, honey, wheat, ranch, desert, bbq...

*A snap I took of Christina pre-wedding.
Quite the cameo, ay?

In SB for the next few days but more to come...
In the meantime - check out Anda's pics! Sigh.
She also shot Haley's wedding
- and is -

This. And That.

To fill wall space in their lofted condo, Christina & Paul took blank canvases and painted giant numbers on them. Too cool. Inspired by THIS.
More of their house HERE.

Something BLUE. Obsessed with these wedding shoes and their shade.

Ready for fall. And soup. Isn't this pot from Crate great?

TJ's Flatbread + hummus. Or use to make pizza. BAM!

Off to AZ for a big wedding. Two more faves tying the knot.
I can't sit still! Get me on that plane!
