My work has been featured on Talent Magazine, along with an interview!  Very happy and humbled. There are so many talented photographers who have exhibited for this online publication and it feels so inspiring to be a part of it. Check out my interview here. Lots of enthusiastic rambling/nerdy camera speak. Hope you enjoy, my friends, and thank you for the support!

I apologize in advance for my mini rant, and for my short absence from blogging. I made some changes to my tumblr site, and let me tell you, it has been difficult.  I have been up for hours and hours trying to figure out html code, and tweaking here and there.  Lots of copying and pasting.  As far as layout, I am enjoying my page a whole lot more.  The images are not showing up as large as I would have hoped, but I love the fact that I can add text to them now.  I would love this little site to be the crazy uncle of With You, Today.

I hope to eventually make it a platform for subject interviews!  Also, to showcase the extra photos that I couldn't add to my main site for various reasons.  I was posting inspirational images, but I think I am going to stick to my own work this time.  Unless something truly mesmerizes me, simplicity is key.

My photographer's brain is getting the best of me.  Officially overwhelmed.  Feedback encouraged!

something vintage

This illustration is pure magic!  Cross breeding never looked so dapper.  My new friend, Lydia, found this beautiful blog about vintage books.  The internet is a sea of visual joy.

Raclette Party

Last night, I went to Angie & Will's Silverlake bungalow for an intimate dinner party.  It was a raclette party to be exact.  I had no idea what raclette was until I arrived and saw the grill captured in the image below.

It's also a delicious cheese!  So basically, it's a type of grill and a cheese indigenous to Switzerland.  A further description here.  It was really fun and reminded me a bit of Shabu Shabu.  For our raclette feast, marinated mushrooms, asparagus, and onions cooked on the grill.  Directly underneath, in those little trays, we melted different types of cheese (gruyere, raclette...) onto bread and sliced potatoes.  Oh man, it was SO GOOD. 

Oh, hey dudes...

 Oh, hey ladies...


 Meet Roxy & Lucky!

Good friends = pure happiness

The Huntington Library

Earlier today, my mother and I spent some time wandering the Huntington gardens.  The last time we were there was for my belated birthday.  The Los Angeles heat got the best of us, so we didn't stay long.  Next time I'm there, I want to lay in the grass, underneath a shady willow tree.
