MISS NIKKI

After a much needed wet winter for Southern California, a wildflower super bloom exploded all over hills and valleys that normally were brown.  Lately I’ve barely had time to create, but I had to witness this. I texted Nikki a couple days before my only day off and asked if she was down for the impromptu adventure.  So on a beautiful Sunday last month, we hopped in my car (with Lulu) and headed out to Lake Elsinore, about an hour out from Los Angeles.

WE ARE MARSHALL (WHITNEY & PATRICK)

I was honored when Whitney reached out to me about taking her engagement pictures.  We planned for a weekend around Thanksgiving, but it happened to be the only day that ended up pouring rain.  We pushed it back another week and… you guessed it.  Rain again.  So we pushed it back one more week.  Third times a charm, right?

Lex Topia

Lex Little Tokyo xoxocescaA self-proclaimed nerd, you can find Alexia on social media sharing her favorite books or dropping knowledge bombs on everything from business to life.  She has built her own company, Capitalize Social, from the ground up and has no intention of slowing down while also starting other ventures.  She teaches the world about social media marketing from Capitol Hill all the way to Hollywood. I sat down with this #GIRL BOSS, who is all about helping other people reach their goals, and talked beginnings, balance, and living in a social media heavy world. After we finished talking over personalized pizzas (mmmm), we explored North Hollywood and Downtown LA for a photoventure. No matter what gender of BOSS you are, I know Alexia’s words can inspire you to get up and start working on your dreams.

Impromptu ABDC Shoot

Moving past the fact that it has been extremely long since I posted…  My friend Ray and I were talking over some Yogurtland (duh!) the other day.  He’s been working on some visual stuff for some of the dancers on MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew.  I loved watching that show (and wishing I could move like those groups) since it’s debut in 2008 and had no idea the show came back for an extra season.  He mentioned he would be with a couple dancers on Saturday shooting some video for a promo and that if I wanted to swing on by, I should.
