Last week was an incredibly inspiring week full of shooting followed by a weekend filled with love and what life is all about.
It’s interesting because I admit, I’ve been battling with wanting to leave LA lately. But goodness, this photoshoot knocked me flat on my face with that idea.
I was incredibly honored to be a part of this shoot for LULU DK, an iconic textile designer and her upcoming project. We spent two days in some unbelievable locations around Los Angeles, from driving around Mulholland and stopping where we saw pretty things, her beautiful home, and an epic beach in Malibu.
LuLu and I had fun preparing inspiration and direction for this shoot, but it was even better than we had imagined because the inspiration actually unfolded itself to lead the focus to be the beautiful landscapes of this city.
I’ve barely made a dent in editing two full days of shooting, but here is a peek into what was captured the first day..
the weekend was filled with a huge group of really close friends, non-stop laughter, wine, an amazing mo-town band, barns, trains, a real legit soul train dance line, absolutely no sleep, and a lot of love on every level.
mb and matt, I truly couldn’t be happier for you on this journey and am so blessed to have you in my life. i was honored to be a part of it, although it was really hard to put my camera down here is what i was able to capture throughout the day.
also thanks to our beautiful friend natalie martin for designing our dresses for the wedding. (including mb’s stunning wedding dress.)
cheers and love to you guys, i wish we could do it all over again!
i have to admit that once every couple of months from the time i wake up, until i fall asleep at night my mind goes e v e r y w h e r e but here. and this week, is one of those weeks. it’s this feeling of a tortured soul craving a shack in the woods where i can roam barefoot all day long, hop into my grandpa’s old beat up pick up truck and drive to the next town which is at least ten miles away and then return home to tend to my garden.
yes, i know we all probably dream of that. but this is something deep down in my heart that starts pounding at my chest to the point where i feel like i might actually go crazy, and as i get older, it gets stronger. so as this new year is blossoming, i am excited for it but also completely in the unknown about where it’s going to lead me. and in between these moments of madness every couple of months, i plan on enjoying right where i am.
i’ve been going through a lot of photos from this past year (which reminded me of how much of an adventure this year was) and have gathered a few that reminded me of what i want and need more of. only a couple of these photos are mine, the rest are from ulrich and bernhard. so here’s to this year and some visual soul food i plan on feeding my heart more of.
one of my closest friends tayler has been traveling the world for the past few years and she’s been hiding her travel photos from all of us.
finally she’s showing us the beauty she sees in this world.. thank you tayler.
wanna go bathe in the dead sea? yes please.
