lulush 01 Sheep In Wolfs Clothing

I did a quick and dirty shoot with my friend L last week on the way up to the Bay Area for Thanksgiving. We pulled over for gas for her monstrosity of a truck and decided to get in some camera time.

It felt really good to just pull over and do an impromptu shoot in the middle of nowhere. Sometimes I get so caught up in the planning of a shoot that I forget, not every one has to be meticulously planned out. Just go out and shoot and enjoy yourself. If you’re having fun, even if you don’t come away with great imagery, at least you’re guaranteed to come away with great memories!

You can check out the rest of our shenanigans here.

Not sure why but I’ve been daydreaming about Hawaii all day. I’ve been twice so far this year… could I make it a third time? I think the islands are calling my name!

vietnam2008 01 Vietnam

The first time I ever visited the motherland, I was 10 or 11 and had zero appreciation for it. How could I live without flushing toilets and running water? It wasn’t until 2008 that I was able to return as an adult, ready to soak in the people, land, and culture. This trip was very important to me on many different levels. I was able to bond with my mama and learn a lot about her homeland and life, experience an amazingly beautiful country and my culture, but the most significant was that it renewed my love for photography. If it were not for this trip, I don’t think I’d be shooting today.

Looking back at these photos from two years ago, it really trips me out on how much my photography has changed and grown. This was my first foray into travel photography and now that my style has changed and my knowledge has grown so much since then, I can’t wait to go back! Photography is a process that never ends and it just shows how much work and dedication is needed to continue to grow as an artist. Enjoy the ride!

A fall from the third floor hurts as much as a fall from the hundredth. If I have to fall, may it be from a high place.

All of Lissie’s covers are ridiculously amazing. On her Youtube channel, you’ll see everything from Lady Gaga to Metallica. They’re all mind-blowing but this cover of KiD CuDi’s “Pursuit of Happiness” has been my personal anthem for a minute.

I’m not sure if I love Lafayette, Louisiana because of my friends or because of the drive-thru alcoholic daiquiris. The South really is a trip! The food is amazing (especially at La Seafood House), the girls are beautiful and friendly, and… they serve alcoholic daiquiris via drive-thru!! (I highly recommend Daiquiri Supreme on Johnston St.)

And of course I have my good friends, the McCowns. I love this family, especially Baby Lanche!

stay warm Stay Warm

It’s the holidays around these parts and if you’re in LA, then you know that equates to 24/7 Christmas music on KOST 103.5. And if you ain’t KOSTin’ with Karen Sharp then you ain’t… West Coastin’! (I wanna say this is an LA thing?)

The weather outside is perfect for some lattes/cappuccinos or whatever it is that you like to consume when it’s cold and windy out. I’m kinda privy to that Red Velvet Hot Cocoa from The Coffee Bean! Whether it’s a significant other, a loved one, or a friend… make sure you are sharing these moments with another person! After all, it’s the holidays!
