Urban Garden Foraging with Emblem Flowers on Trouve Mag

Oftentimes it’s the process that makes me appreciate the beauty. One afternoon I had the opportunity of following my friend Emblem Flowers into her local urban flower farm to capture a story of her process in creating.

Lavender & Honey Espresso Bar

I was recently asked to capture one of the loveliest coffee shops in Pasadena, Lavender & Honey Espresso Bar. Thanks Best Friends for Frosting for the feature today!




Ben and Anna at Home

Back in July I had the chance of photographing Ben and Anna’s love story. I was so moved by who they are that I captured a piece of their everyday lives. Since their big day they have moved into a modest one bedroom apartment in Northwest Pasadena next to several other families of mixed socio-economic backgrounds. These are people who love Jesus, dream big and have chosen to live simply in community with others for the greater good. They dream of changing the world and are already doing it in right here in Pasadena.  This day I was able to capture them in their new apartment, doing what they do best, living with the people they love deeply, in community.

I am proud to share this summer fashion editorial cultivated in the hopes of bringing attention to local artists and businesses who are keen on giving back to the community. Market bags from Apolis promote jobs and income for underprivileged women in Bangladesh and other countries, while bicycles from Around the Cycle is a consignment bike shop dedicated to local and global sustainability through recycled bicycle parts.
