  • I’m currently in a British pub in China, listening to Toby Keith, looking at my film scans from Mexico dreaming of Christmas in California. I have no idea what’s going on 🤣
I found the cutest little street the last hour before I had to head to the airport and it had the cutest little churrero. I’m sad I didn’t go there because looking at it now, I would give anything for a churro.
Lots of fun taking up film for the first time in about 12 years. @psychedelic_blues_film was a perfect way to bring a different spin to travel photos this time. I’m going to share more, you’re welcome in advance. .

  • Tomorrow begins a crazy whirlwind of travel....4 out of the next 6 weeks (and still managing to get those Christmas minis in) 
Part of my day job means every once and a while I have to travel and while it’s been fairly light the past few years, that’s been the best because it’s so hard to leave the little. 
I’m looking forward to busting out the passport again, I’m praising whatever genius software engineering team that figured out FaceTime and I’m already missing my bed because there truly is no place like home. 
And in true photographer form, I’m bringing not one, not two, but THREE camera bodies, as this time I’m playing with film, so bringing two different film bodies to try out along with my travel friendly, reliable 6D.
Hopefully with some down time I’ll be able to get some work done and even the blog post I’ve been wanting to write about managing both a full time job and a part time business...and balancing family along the way. Not easy, but hard to imagine it any other way.
Side note: this is one of my favorite travel photos, taken in Hong Kong several years ago. My heart stands with HK, one of the best cities I’ve ever been to. I hope to be able to return one day.

  • This isn’t a phone at a wedding shaming post (yes, that’s actually a thing because eye roll, of course it is. There’s even a hashtag for it #unpluggedwedding ) 
It’s actually the opposite. I was going through this wedding recently and realized something: it’s always fun to see a wedding through someone else’s eyes. Thats.my.job. As a wedding photographer, I love showing couples my view of the day and my favorite thing is when they say “You were everywhere. You caught moments we didn’t even know about!” but often times, those photos of EVERY SINGLE MOMENT take a few weeks or more to make their way to the couple (all 1873 of them!) There are photographers out there who get annoyed when people have their phones out during the ceremony, but let’s face it: 
In our age of instant, I want to capture instants, too. In my personal life, it’s not like I have my big cameras always accessible, so I have more photos of my daughter on my iPhone than my Canon 🤷🏼‍♀️ We all want to preserve these beautiful moments forever.
So go ahead and take out the phones...hashtag the crap out of the weddings these couples put so much work into. Let them see their beautiful day the second it ends because I know how fast it goes...it’s a blur and you just want to relive the most awesome day ever! Besides, no one ever gets tired of looking at their wedding day! Let them see everyone’s view of their perfect day. Let them get so so excited the day after and go through every friends post that made their way to social media. 
It’s my job to capture the day and tell the story, but this day belongs to the guests just as much if not more as they helped create your story.
Bonus: Sometimes I can get such great groups shots at receptions because someone else just wants a quick phone pic, so I spot the moments people group up for the IG moment and politely step in and ask “Before you go, can I also take one?” so yah, keep it up. 😉 .
