Beach Bash // 100 Layer Cake

Amanda, 100 Layer Cake Founder + Creative Director, didn’t have to ask me twice if I wanted to shoot this vintage surf-themed beach bash. Her husband was turning 40 and she planned the perfect summer party with the help of the talented Aaron Hartselle. Their inspiration was a blend of Tulum, Mexico inspired pieces, vintage surf throw backs, West Coast boho style and Montauk’s surf cottages. They created something really special and everyone especially loved lounging in huts, eating the amazing tacos, flying kites and taking jello shots!

Special thanks to Kayla Lilli for shooting with me!

Heidi + Michael’s Palm Springs Wedding

Heidi + Michael

They threw a Spanish themed wedding in the desert. 105 degrees and Heidi was flawless and gorgeous all day!

Heidi not only married the love of her life but also became a Momma to two sweet children. It was a touching celebration of family and the love that brought them all together.

Congrats to the head over heels, happy as can be, lovebirds!

Topanga

Topanga Canyon.

Our little place in the world.

Spring brings bright mustard flowers that blanket the hills. For weeks we adored them on walks and drives. When they started to fade, we celebrated their last blooms with some photos. If only they could stay.

My beautiful and talented cousin is now apart of my business. We have so many projects in the works and have already had so many adventures. Having her along for the ride makes the sweet even sweeter.

Just when I thought life couldn’t get any better.

I love you, Kayla Lilli!
