Last week, I spent my days exploring around LA - hanging out with old friends, taking a lot of photos, eating delicious food, wandering along the beach and meeting new friends. Darien (seen in the photos below) and I have been “instagram friends” for a couple years and finally got to meet while I was in town. There is something so wonderful about meeting people who you immediately have a connection with. We very quickly realized we are extremely similar in personality (both Type 2 on the Enneagram) and also have experienced similarities in our life. It felt like we had known each other for way longer than a couple hours. She kindly agreed to model for me for a shoot I had planned with Koolaburra, so we wandered around Venice and up the coast to Point Dume, an overwhelmingly beautiful look out along the ocean.
I love that I have a job that allows me to shoot in new places and meet cool people. I am also super thankful for clients like Koolaburra who trust me to capture their brand and have allowed me to be creative + travel with their product. Traveling always allows me to refill my creative cup while experience new places. It helps to remind me why I enjoy what I do and challenges me to try new things. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them!
