LAURA, STRADER + COYOTE AT HOME | Venice Beach, Ca

CATCH UP

Hey blog fam! Oof, 2019. Hi. So, last I checked, blogging is still a thing, and even if it wasn’t, over the past 8 non-blogging months of my life, I’ve come to miss it.

It became clear to me that it’s another avenue for me to exercise my storytelling muscles and since that is a practice I feel is worth putting energy into, I’m back at it with a swell of fresh mojo.

When looking back through my galleries deciding where to pick back up (almost 200 by the way whaaaat) I felt a twinge of shame at how few I’ve shared. These stories deserve a home outside of my hard drive and I’m pumped to start chipping away at the block.

First up, Laura, Strader, and their Adonis baby boy, Coyote Hawk. I passed this long haired fam on the streets of Abbot Kinney in September 2017 during the annual arts fair, and it only took about 5 full seconds after passing them for me to stop, turn, and backtrack to ask if they’d be interested in a family photo shoot while I was in town (getting better at this, ha).

The stars aligned and they invited me into their home in Venice Beach, which, funnily enough, they’ve since moved out of, making this post all the more relevant.

Don’t forget to check out Laura’s jewelry company Turquoise and Tobacco and be sure to click the heart at the bottom if you enjoyed the post. Xxo

NELSON FAMILY AT HOME | Benbow, Ca

I can smell the magic of childhood from here.  Can't you?  Effervescent and whimsical, little Juniper stole my heart as we frolicked around her families marijuana farm in Northern California.

The older I get the less resistant (most of the time) I've become to change, and I'd like to think I've made some headway in the skill of learning to embrace each season of my life and to enjoy it for what it is.

As I put this blog post together I imagined these images of little Juni serving that purpose for her someday.  Of reminding her of a far-off time in the distant past where she lived in a yurt on the side of a mountain, didn't have a care in the world, and was so very deeply, deeply loved. Xo

SHEDAROWICH FAMILY AT HOME | Newport Beach, Ca

ON THE ROAD AGAIN

As you may remember, in March I ventured to SoCal.  I loved it so much that I'm set to head back at the end of September.  

While there earlier this year I met the lovely Erin Shedarowich (@erinmayshed) and her adorable family, and they invited me into their stunning home for a shoot.  Erin and Pat are the 'buy and remodel' type and are currently ambitiously putting their mark on the 3rd reno in just over a year.

If you follow Erin on social media then I'm sure that her daughter, the vivacious Indy May, has already proceeded to steal your heart.  In person, she's just as charming, gifting me an 'Indy May orig' neon drawing (titled 'To: Jen') as I walked through the door.  Here's a peek into life at the Shedarowich household.
