At the beginning of August, I headed up north to Grass Valley (3 hour northeast of San Francisco) to Tim Green’s Louder Studios to meet up with my dear buds of Los Angeles band FEELS. They were recording their sophomore album for 10 days, and I was happy to stay a few nights and document the time for them.
We spent this last weekend in San Francisco and thought we’d stay an extra day to watch the eclipse with friends. I read that Los Angeles would only be getting 62% moon-to-sun coverage, and that San Francisco would be getting 75% coverage, so why not! We scrambled to get eclipse glasses at the last minute but it ended up being okay, as it was so foggy, when paired with sun glasses, the veil of fog made it a little easier to look at the sun.
This past June, Lauren and Jason flew me up to San Francisco to photograph their city hall elopement. It would be just the three of us (I love, love being the only witness), with Lauren and Jason planning a party later in the year with family and friends. We had such an epic day together, we sat in the car afterwards with joy-hangovers, completely beat, but grateful. I mean, at one point we had cheeseburgers and waffles at a diner overlooking a fog drenched ocean — I just can’t think of anything else that makes me smile more.
I’m gearing up to get on the road at the end of August through September, traveling to several border towns with AMBOS (Art Made Between Opposite Sides) and Tanya Aguiñiga‘s Border Quipu. After bringing the project to all of the border crossings in California last year, AMBOS Project will be on the road taking the Border Quipu and other various artistic interventions to all of the border crossings from Lukeville, Arizona to El Paso, Texas. I helped document this project last year at the Tijuana/San Diego border and I am even more excited to join them on the road to document this next extension.
It’s official, I’m excited to be photographing Werk It: A Women’s Podcast Festival this October 3-5, 2017 at The Theatre at Ace Hotel, Downtown Los Angeles!!
The only all-woman podcasting festival on the planet, Werk It presents workshops, demonstrations, mentoring sessions and NSFW conversations about working in audio and digital media.

This past April I made my way down to Orange County to capture Emilie and Erik’s wedding in the backyard for Emilie’s family home. I’ve said it before, but I love backyard weddings. It makes so much sense to me that a wedding would take place somewhere as intimate as a home. I had so much fun keeping up with all the Danish wedding traditions, which I definitely googled post-wedding shoot for a better understanding of what I was witnessing and documenting. All the texts below in italics are things I found online that I copied-and-pasted, to give you an idea of what I am talking about!
