family fun

My brother and niece came to stay with us in LA last weekend, and we had such a great time together. Besides stopping in the city for lunch one day, they hadn’t spent much time with us here. We played a lot of Just Dance and board games, made chocolate chip cookies, spent some time […]

sweet summertime part two

This summer was the summer of visitors. A month after my family visited, my in-laws came into town for a week and a half. I didn’t snap too many photos (I was enjoying the leisure of having them take the photos), but here are a few from my film camera. We had a great time […]

sweet summertime part one

Oh, hi. Nice to see you there. I’ve missed this space. I’ve been milking my last roll of film for the past month, and I finally finished it. But that’s okay because they pretty much encapsulate these last few weeks of summer. I may switch back to digital for a bit to keep costs down […]

It has probably been 20 years since we were all together (dang we’re old), so it was definitely time for a family reunion. Unfortunately one of my […]

pacific beach

I’m fortunate to live so close to my brother, and last weekend we went to visit while my niece was in town. After brunch we headed to the beach for smash ball, ladder ball, and cards; that evening we grilled, played Pictionary, and baked cookies with my niece…a perfect weekend to kick off the summer. […]

My husband and I finally had a weekend to take a camping trip…just the two of us and Kip. We drove up to Morro Bay early Saturday morning in hopes of snagging a campsite at Isley Creek Campground. We ate lunch and headed to the beach for four hours, where Kipling wore herself out swimming […]

Los Angeles Headshot Photographer: Kennedy

My niece has decided that she wants to be an actress. Though I’m happy she’s following in my footsteps, I know how difficult a career this is and just want to protect her from the negative aspects of it. I’m helping her take the right steps to get started (she currently does choir and performs […]
