Finding My Love for California

Finding My Love for California

For the past few weeks or so, I for some reason started to feel a lack of passion for Southern California. It was to the point that I called my best friend and told him I was considering moving back to the East Coast and he was in shock. That’s mainly because all I ever wanted was to move and live in California and here I am (ask my best friends from middle school, I wrote it in someone’s yearbook lol), living all fine and dandy, yet, somehow lost the love for it. And I just couldn’t put my finger on why. Continue reading “Finding My Love for California”

A Day Trip to Malibu

A Day Trip to Malibu

Malibu, California — one of the most beautiful and aesthetic looking places in the Golden StateΒ (in my opinion). The first time I ever visited California at the age of fifteen, my parents took me to Malibu because that’s all I wanted to see and once I was on the pier, I fell in love.

On this day trip, my friend and I decided to check out Malibu Farm, since it’s a very well-known food spot for local and organic food, and the view is also just amazing. The drive to Malibu from OC wasn’t too bad, since we left at a time traffic was alright, but it was still at least an hour drive. Continue reading “A Day Trip to Malibu”

A Day in Laguna

A Day in Laguna

Laguna Beach is by far one of my favorite spots in Southern California and personally my favorite beach! The vibe here is always relaxing and feels like a getaway, but really it’s a fifteen minute drive from where I live!

The other day I had a super quick shoot here with a good photographer friend named Emma Faukner. I really enjoy working with her on projects and shoots because our goals align when it comes down to getting a shoot done. We don’t want to do it simply for photos for our portfolio or blog, but rather, for the fun-filled adventure and experience that comes with it. It’s genuinely amazing meeting new people who enjoy doing things for the natural thrill of it, rather than what it appears like to others. Continue reading “A Day in Laguna”
