i watched the gilmore girls revival and this is how i feel about it

So, I finally watched Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. I agreed to wait until my friend got back from NYC to watch the revival together (why am I such a good friend?!), only to find out he’d be leaving the next day and we could only squeeze two of the four episodes in. […]

work hard and be kind

After a rough week, I’m just popping in to share a simple reminder for the week ahead. I’ve been having fun experimenting with video content, including the use of stop motion.

norway : a video

While I stayed behind and explored Copenhagen solo and galavanted off to Paris, my husband and our friends, Justin and Kameron, set off on an outdoor adventure to Norway.

Video is something I’ve never really explored, and besides being […]

snorkeling part two

You might remember that my snorkeling trip last summer was a bit of a disaster (and I have the ankle scars to prove it). But I was determined to get back out there this summer – without the mutilation to my body. My cousin invited us last minute to go to Treasure Island in Laguna, and I’m […]

documenting solo travel

I don’t think it’s any surprise that I love photos – taking them and being in them. All through college I was unofficially designated as the group photographer and carried my camera with me everywhere. This lead to a LOT of photos (for which I know everyone was secretly grateful, even if they did make […]

new headshots

I am no stranger to taking headshots – in fact, this is my fourth time to do so in Los Angeles alone. But oh, the dreaded headshots. The effort to try to squeeze who you are into a few hours of still photos. In the past, I’ve always felt like they never quite looked like […]
