Andrea & Casey

A few years ago I walked in to their living room, from the car I’m sure I gave myself a pep talk before I worked up the nerve to actually walk inside. I’m an introvert and groups of people are intimidating– don’t judge. ;] Going to that first South Bay Photographers meet up was one of the best decisions I made early on in my photography career. Building friendships with local photographers has been an incredible encouragement to me on this crazy journey, and Andrea & Casey made all of that happen by welcoming us into their home.

When Casey asked if he & Andrea could get in front of my camera for new head shots I immediately agreed… then I thought about how intimidating it would be to photograph these two photographers I admire so much and I hoped Casey would forget he asked me. No such luck. ;] Earlier this week we met in a magical forrest in Palos Verdes for their session and while I was a nervous wreck they were adorable and perfect. ♥

Arts District & Ice Cream: Los Angeles Film Photographer

I was sitting on the couch when Zoe came down the stairs into the living room, she leaned over the arm of the couch towards me and said, “Staceeeeeee” the way she does when she wants something, “we should go on a dinner date.” She continued. “And have banana splits.” She said very matter-of-factly.

She then put her shoes on, grabbed her purse, and announced she was ready to go.

The only problem? It was well before lunch time… and I’m not really sure where she learned about banana splits.

Aunt Stacee has a hard time saying no so we made plans for a banana split dinner date when it was actually dinner time.

While Zoe took a nap that afternoon, I made my way to the Arts District in DTLA to explore and shoot a little film. If you remember, one of my goals this year was to shoot for myself and in doing that I’ve picked up a film camera and am forcing myself to sloooooow down and shoot intentionally. It’s exciting really, and waiting for the scans to come back is like a kid waiting for Christmas morning. Here is a little peek into my afternoon wandering the Arts District downtown… and only the second time I’ve ever shared film scans on the blog. :D

Janine & Mikey: Flying Caballos Ranch Engagement Photography

Earlier this year I posted a list of my goals here on the blog. One of the goals I was most excited about was the idea of attending a photography workshop. Over the years I’ve gone to several meet-ups and seminars and made a handful of really incredible photographer friends to share life and learn with but it’s been, I think, since 2009 when I flew up to Vancouver to intern under Jamie Delaine that I actually went to a workshop to learn specifically from a photographer I admire.

Less than 3 weeks after I blogged my goals Danielle Capito, a photographer I love, posted that she was going to be hosting her very first photography workshop in San Luis Obispo… a town I love! How could I say no to that?! ;] So the morning of March 22nd I pulled into the Flying Caballos Ranch to spend 12 hours learning and growing as a photographer alongside 8 other incredible women.

One of the things I was most excited about Danielle’s workshop is that we were going to take some time to actually get outside and shoot. [Instead of just sitting around inside talking about shooting.] Through the day we had 2 styled shoots the first one I’m so excited to share with you today is an engagement styled session that we shoot right at noon… and if you’re a photographer you know how hard it is to find good light midday! It was actually really fun to look at light at a different time of day since the majority of my sessions happen at sunset. And huge shoutout to Janine & Mikey for being our incredible models they were AWESOME, I would not have handled having 10+ cameras pointed my direction well but they were incredible!

Laura & Patrick: Los Angeles Wedding Photographer

I say this about every couple, but I love these two. In the early stages of planning their wedding we got together for coffee one Saturday morning and after an hour of talking, sharing ideas and getting to know each other I walked away desperately wanting to be a part of their wedding day. Not because their ideas were out of this world incredible– even though they were! But because their smiles are big and genuine, their laughs are loud and infectious and their joy for life spreads to everyone they meet. I love Laura & Patrick!

Like I said, the idea behind their wedding was incredible. Neither Laura nor Patrick grew up in Los Angeles so the majority of their guests were going to be flying in from across the country to celebrate with them. To introduce their love of Los Angeles to their guests they partnered with Secret City Tours to plan a mini tour of their favorite LA spots between their ceremony and reception. It was INCREDIBLE!

I’m so excited to share their wedding with you… and if you head over to A Paper Proposal you can see even more!

Los Angeles Staycation: Day 4&5

I’ve spent the morning in a group chat with these lovely ladies and it’s making me miss our adventures. So I’m being a good blogger and sharing the next part of our Los Angeles Vacation/Staycation with the world! The whole world. ;] I made the executive decision practically a million years ago that if our Canadians were coming to town we were going to Palm Springs. Called it. In our planning process Alexis didn’t really get, but I didn’t care, I was up to do whatever on all the other days but I wanted a Palm Springs adventure. I love Palm Springs. And road trips. And the desert.

Back in October when we were in New Jersey Jennie mentioned that she’d never seen the desert… and that just gave me one more excuse to stand by the fact that this was the best idea ever.

So, as we did every day, we surprised Jennie & Meredith with their itineraries and then set off for a vacation within a vacation. Every good adventure starts with lunch at Panera.

Best way to relax after an exhausting 3 days of vacation? Legs up the wall. For sure.Los Angeles Staycation Palm Springs Adventure Palm Springs Portrait Photographer Palm Springs Engagement Photographer 010We stayed at the ACE Hotel, which I adore.

The ACE was perfect.Los Angeles Staycation Palm Springs Adventure Palm Springs Portrait Photographer Palm Springs Engagement Photographer 011One of my goals this year is to slow down and really shoot for me.
