My niece Maya is 12.5 years old and her mother told me a few weeks ago that she wanted to get her hair cut like me. Instant *heart eyes.* I love seeing young girls with pixie haircuts so I was thrilled to take her to see my stylist, Jessica Renich at Artkiteks Hair Studio in Costa Mesa, CA. We had a blast and Maya absolutely loved her new hair. Big thanks to Jessica for being awesome and making young girls and women, like myself, feel confident and beautiful by working her magic.
I had the honor of photographing a music festival held in LA recently called Women Fuck Shit Up.
WFSU Fest uses music and art to bridge communities and raise awareness around social justice issues while aiming to create a community of womyn to hone their power and defy the feminine stereotype of “softness’. The space is about diversity, equity and inclusion. It was a very positive and empowering place to be on a Friday and Saturday night in Los Angeles.
Each year the festival benefits a local organization that supports womyn. This year it benefited LA Center for Law and Justice. This non-profit is dedicated to helping those in need with law services, education and awareness immigration status to sexual harassment cases. These services come free of charge for those who meet the poverty threshold.
The line up was awesome, check it out here. Without further ado, here are my favorites from the whole fest that I saw.
My derby sister Fish AKA Meg invited me to her family's tree hunting outing recently and I had such a hoot chasing little Delaney through the rows of pine trees. It was a joy to photograph their family during this annual tradition they have.
Emily and I met over a decade ago and when she asked me to photograph AND film her wedding in Montana, it was a done deal! I had never documented with both mediums for a wedding before, by myself no-less. It was a challenge but was so much fun. The bridal party was a hoot and so laid back. Other than the mosquitoes in the evening, I really enjoyed my time in Montana. Everyone was so welcoming and lovely. OH! It was a sunflower wedding, my favorite!
Check out some of the photos and highlight video below.
Last month I took a few flights over to east Montana to document the wedding day of Emily and Andrew. Here's a sneak peek at their small town country wedding. Enjoy!
