that kind of summer day

at home, napping in swim shorts in mama & daddy’s bed… making cookies early in the morning so the oven doesn’t make the house hot (and filling up on cookie dough before 8am). timing when windows and doors are open to keep the inside cool. sweet visitors, friendship memories. no big agenda.

i have been saving up summer pictures, for next week to post a lot all at once. but also, a lot of our summer beach days or pool days the camera has rested. here’s something bizarre, i really wrecked my right arm this year – from my camera! (who knew that was a risk of the job)… but with rest and chiropractic treatment, it’s on the mend…

and one more note. i really love this space, my blog. it feels like one space with no pressure, no rigidity, no expectations. i can post as little or as often as i want. and really have no idea if people follow here or not. and, well, there it is. simply that. i appreciate this creative space – for myself.

february 2014, i walked into the beverly hills courthouse. looking for a couple i’d never met to photograph their civil ceremony.

they instantly had my heart.

somehow, since then, we’ve photographed deeply personal moments in beverly hills, venice beach, south carolina, cardiff, and recently, back to los angeles for what may have been my favorite shoot so far.

and baby east. you are just too perfect.

you are so loved by two incredible, warm & gracious humans.

you, east… i can’t wait to see who you are and who you become. i know you are amazing, and anticipate you will just somehow become more and more so.

sandy shoots

 the hot & messy sand, the coastal breezes, a little bit of chaos and bright, bright sun feel so much like me.

so grateful for families like this that allow me to do this.
