Ann // Pasadena, CA

 

I love taking photos of people who know how to love well. This is my friend Ann. She just got back from an amazing 1 year adventure in Malawi loving the Yao people freely. A year ago she sold her car, packed up her belongings and was off to Africa. This summer she’s back in Southern California to begin a new chapter.

 

Emblem Flower Stand at Lavender & Honey // Pasadena, CA

One of my favorite things to do is relish the simple moments in life. Last month I had the chance of hanging out with the lovely Charmain of Emblem Flowers at the first ever Lavender & Honey Flower Stand located off 1383 East Washington Blvd in Pasadena. Stay tuned for the next one coming soon!

Timothy and Christina // Kathmandu Anniversary Session

 Timothy and Christina are two of the dearest hearts I have had the pleasure of knowing in Nepal. Seeing their love for one another and how they sacrifice for each other has been incredible. Their personalities fit like lock and key. It’s rare to find this kind of love nowadays.

In June they celebrated their 1 year anniversary and to celebrate they brought me along to capture these moments in time for them. Afterwards they shared the most delicious goat dinner with Robbie and I. My favorite memory of the shoot was when Christina was walking down the stairway from the roof and Timothy looked up exclaiming… “It’s like we’re getting married again.” I couldn’t have been more thrilled to capture these. Enjoy.

Angel // San Francisco, CA Lifestyle Portraits

Today I’m honored to feature some special photos of long time friend and creative communications professional, Angel Chang, in San Francisco. Angel and I go way back to college days when I lived 6 floors above her and was in nothing else but a skateboard and beach cruiser phase. Yep…even then I was already the camera slinging photo girl who’d constantly cover her dorm room walls with hundreds of photo prints developed by yours truly. I was a lover, I was a fighter and I was living the college dream.

Last month,  I was invited by Angel to  be a part of her professional re-branding process (I’m still pinching myself!) while on my summer mini-session tour up in her neck of the woods. Today Angel and I share a common love for creative story telling. She is passionate, fun, compassionate and poised.  After 8 years…I was so glad our paths finally re-crossed and the 8 years that had separated us felt as if they had been none. Photos were taken just a few miles away from Twin Peaks San Francisco atop her apartment building overlooking the San Francisco cityscape.
