Good news this morning: my summer artist residency application in Havana, Cuba was ✨ACCEPTED✨! I will be spending the first half of July working on a photo project that has been simmering on the back burners of my mind for the last 3 years since my mother passed. I want to develop a series of photographs and text for a photo book about identity, place, and loss and I’m looking forward to immersing myself in work and the motherland.
I thought I’d share Shaena & Gabriel’s engagement shoot since I’m gearing up to shoot their wedding at the end of the month. We met up on a Saturday afternoon and strolled around Downtown Los Angeles to shoot some portraits and get to know each other before their day!
