Food File | Morning Bliss ~ The Nespresso!

I have been wanting to find time to post about my new favorite morning routine since the Nespresso box showed up at my door last year. It was a very thoughtful thank you gift sent by a friend, fellow blogger & client (ILoveSportsGirl Blogger). The thought of a rich cup of Nespresso brew makes my morning extra shiny & bright…even when I’m not feeling so shiny & bright.  My husband always gets up before I do and after his brewing is done, the rich scent of coffee beans still lingers in the More…

ENGAGED | Carey + Charles (Part III)

The final post to the Carey & Charles’ full day Santa Monica engagement session. I included some extra in-between shots from our hanging out portion of the day.   After wrapping up our morning photo session at the Huntley, we had lunch at this delicious Italian tapas place. One thing that is quite hilarious about Carey is when it comes to the camera, she LOVES to pose….Charles & I gave her a hard time about it and would continually shout “no posing”!  Every time I lift my camera, Carey instantly perked up into her More…

ENGAGED | Carey + Charles (Part II)

As I sifted through some of the images from this beautiful Santa Monica engagement shoot, I started to laugh at all the great moments from the day. Carey & Charles were so easy to hang with and I laughed quite a bit with them.  Just being around them, you can sense a solid love had been built. The joy they had for each other emanated all around. I knew before flying out to Santa Monica to meet Carey & Charles, that I would hit it off right away with this dynamic couple. Even more so, More…

ENGAGED | Carey + Charles (Part I)

A photoshoot like the one I had this weekend is the reason why I LOVE what I do. Carey & Charles are an amazing and fun couple from Santa Monica who took a chance on me having only seen my work on this site. They flew me out for the weekend to run around the city with them. Not only did they had me fall in love with them as a couple but they also had me fall in love with their hometown of Santa Monica as well. Here’s a sneak More…

Happy Chinese New Year to a Globalized America

I’m late to the game, but Chinese New Year (which is celebrated throughout most of Asia and also here in America) started on Feb 03 this year with a celebration period extending somewhere between a week to a month. Being from the fashion industry and living in New York, Chinese New Year is a part of our yearly acknowledgment. Factories in china close down for a week or 2 which affects garment deliveries & practically any other industry which manufactures out of China. In major cities throughout the U.S. there are large Asian More…
