Suzy + Ryan // Malibu Maternity Session

I am so thrilled for these two dear friends of mine, Suzy & Ryan Weeks of Around the Cycle who will be delivering their baby girl any day now. I love the love these two exude. Ryan was the sweetest and called me up towards the end of last year to plan this shoot to surprise Suzy. So grateful to have journeyed together with you two this past season through life, faith, community, creativity, entrepreneurship, pregnancy, parenthood and so much more. What a privilege to be a part of your story and to document this beautiful season of your lives.

A Tribute to Ada Lee

In 2015 I had the opportunity of photographing Ada Lee on her 90th birthday. Bright and bubbly, her vivacious personality and beautiful smile radiated throughout the day. With Chinese New Year just around the corner, here’s a shout out to this beautiful pioneering woman.

This year at 91 she is one of the oldest surviving native-born Chinese Americans, born and raised in Los Angeles.  As one of the original members of the Los Angeles Mei-Wah Drum Corps, today her photo stands in the Chinese American Museum, Los Angeles. Once located in Chinatown, in the 1930’s the club members attempted to use their achievements in drum corps as social capital in a land where discrimination was still accepted at the time.

Grateful to have been able to make this book as a memorial for her 90th birthday celebration.

Jasmine + Justin // Malibu, CA Engagement Session

Capturing Jasmine & Justin’s engagement shoot in the hills of Malibu just makes me swoon. Loved adventuring through the fields and hills watching their hearts grow warm with love for one another.  The icing on the cake was Justin’s tattoo which has been the mantra for my business since the beginning. “Act Justly, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly”..Micah 6:8. So excited for these two to tie the knot next March!
