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

ANDERSON FAMILY AT HOME | Encinitas, Ca

ANDERSON FAMILY AT HOME | Encinitas, Ca

And oh what a dream house it is.  Steph and Matt were fortunate enough to be able to build a home (from the ground up) in Encinitas, San Diego for their new family of 6, and I can say with 100% honesty that I would agree to be permanently house poor if it meant that I could live in a home like theirs.

From it's clean and breezy minimalist aesthetic to it's true outdoor/indoor living vibe (complete with farmhouse front door and an entire retractable glass wall), this home is SoCal living done RIGHT.

But beyond the absolutely breathtaking backdrop of the house is the bubbly and radiant love inside that makes it a home. I can no longer count the number of 'we met in high school' stories I've heard from my clients on one hand yet it still thrills me when I discover that the family in front of my lens came to be in that utterly romantic way.

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.
