Diaries of Nepal 17 // Kathmandu

 I’m a really strong believer in the fact that the journey is what makes us. Our journey to Nepal hasn’t always been the easiest, but it’s been an amazing one, one that we’ll never regret having.

This month marks 7 months since my original and first post featuring photos on Nepal…Kathmandu more specifically. I am excited to share Kathmandu from a different lens 7 months…or 30 weeks…or 212 days later.

Diaries of Nepal 16 // Chapa Gao Village

The life of an artist is often unexpected but mostly it’s one big epic adventure. A short bus-ride away from Nakhipot lies Chapa Gao village. Village visits are my favorite parts of each week. Each village we visit is a window into each of the people we go to visit.  A few weeks ago we took a day to investigate this quaint little town and collect a bit of research for Rob’s project. Here’s a short glimpse into what we discovered.

Mini Sessions in June


Hi guys! It’s been a long 9 months since we’ve left the states for the far away land of Nepal for a few personal projects of ours. It’s been good, it’s been hard, but mostly good and absolutely worth it. In fact, I would never trade the experience for a thing. I went to Nepal to get into new branches of work I haven’t gone into before without any promise of what would happen when I returned. Well, I’m returning in 5 days this June and hopefully, I won’t fall flat on my face.

This June I’ll be back with a boom to hit off the 2014 wedding season.

To celebrate, we’re doing a West Coast Mini tour where I’ll be throwing 30 minute mini-sessions up and down the California coast to see old friends and clients we’ve missed for the past year, and to visit the sights and sounds we’ve missed so much since we’ve been gone. We’ll be hitting up Irvine, Los Angeles and San Francisco for couples, singles and families. Plus, it’ll be a fun way to see you again!

What is a mini session? It’s a 30 minute photo session designed for couples, singles or families where I photograph you and you get to just smile and relax. Photos are delivered 2-3 weeks later on a disc for you to print out wherever you’d like.

Here is the June 2014 CA Road Trip Itinerary:

June 7-8: Bernal Heights, San Francisco

June 10: Lema Ranch, Redding, CA

June 13: Las Vegas, NV

June 14: Malibu Hills, Los Angeles

June 21: Quail Hill, Irvine

DETAILS: Each 30 minute mini session is $150.00- extra person charge after 5 people is $20.00 per person. A non-refundable payment in full is due to retain your space. Should it rain, boo! A make-up date will be scheduled.

Come join us in celebrating this joyous occasion! So who’s in?!? Email me at marithasears@gmail.com to reserve your spot today!

Spread the word everyone!

Diaries of Nepal 14 // Finding Bagmara

Bagmara (or “Kill Tiger” in Nepali) is the kind of hidden gem you’d only dream about visiting, and an adventure to behold.  At one point in time a paradise where tigers were richly found and hunted by royalty, today few tigers remain in the area. One day we decided to trek out for 2 hours outside Pokhara city to visit some friends. Situated near the Seti River gorge, a small community of houses built next to the river can be found. The people who live here collect rocks for construction for a living. When we finally got to the edge of the cliff there was no other way to go except down. A pretty astonishing cliff hike, but totally worth it and wouldn’t have exchanged it for a thing.
