A WORK/LIFE BALANCE RELATIONSHIP

Do you ever feel like you have no days off? I mean honestly that's me every dang day. As a business owner and a freelancer, I work for myself, so I make my own hours, but honestly a lot of the time it feels like I'm ALWAYS working! Kristen and Seth 100% understand the struggle of work/life balance. We took the day to focus on them and what their day to day looks like. While they both are constantly traveling, working, emailing, etc - they often get to do it together, which is awesome! That's exactly what you want in a relationship. They do definitely spend a lot of time apart as well, but they make it work and do their best to maintain a work/life balance. We spent most of the day wandering around DTLA, specifically the arts district, but we also made it back to West Hollywood for some good shots! Enjoy!

I got to photograph one of my favorite families, the Holmes! It takes a lot to get this many people together and all in sync, but they did it and nailed their outfits! The thing they learned is to pick a color scheme, which allows everyone to wear the same color, but also mix and match patterns and shades. Enjoy some of our favorites!

First things first - do you see Max back there?! Isn't he the sweetest?! He was so fun to have on the shoot because he was so well behaved, sweet and fun! I was beyond stoked when Donal reached out to me after our mutual friend Darren Kennedy sent him my way. Sofie was a killer mama babe! She was hiking, climbing on rocks and telling us to follow her along the craziest paths AND she still looks FLAWLESS after all of that! I absolutely loved spending the evening with these two - such a dream!

Congrats to Brandon and Natalie! How cute are they?! Brandon proposed at SLS Beverly Hills amongst close friends, which we more or less re-created the following day. We spent the first part of the day at SLS shooting around the hotel then ventured over to Rodeo Dr and even were able to shoot in their friends suite at the Beverly Wilshire, which was an absolute dream! Look at that liiiight! Soooo dreamy! UGH!
