Kristen + Seth: DTLA Couple Session

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!

A DANA POINT FAMILY SESSION

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!

I had the pleasure of teaming up with Gentleman Warfare to shoot their most recent line of watches. I've worked with their sister brand, Egard Watch Co. We shot around the Arts District and Downtown LA with Nicole and Sam. Enjoy!

Connor + Hannah: Wicker Park Chicago Couple Session

A WALK AROUND WICKER PARK

It was so great to reconnect with Connor and Hannah. We all went to college together, which is where they first met. I met Connor while I was out to lunch with our mutual friend Fred. We managed to stay in touch via Instagram and I reached out before I headed to Chicago. I was so stoked when they said they were up for a couple session, but they couldn't afford it. When I'm traveling, of course I want to take on as much paid work as possible, but sometimes I have free time to be creative and always need new content in new places. I met up at their apartment and we shot as much as we could there, then we went on a stroll around Wicker Park. Enjoy!

Georgia + Gil: Venice Beach Denim

A VENICE CANALS STYLED SHOOT

It's always a blast working with Two Management! I styled and shot this session with Georgia and Gil at the Venice Canals and around Venice Beach. I'd been dying to work with Gil for quite sometime, so I was excited to finally work with him! Georgia had just flown in from London, too and they both killed it! Enjoy this primarily denim series we created!
