• EGO

    Ego is the topic of the day here. Mainly because according to an article by a guy named Bruce I read on Forbes the other day, ego should be an issue for us everyday. What he said about it really stood out to me. For me because from the start…
  • AUDRA

    Sometimes there is nothing better than just putting on a beautiful outfit and taking a Sunday off. Pleats, pockets, buttons, cuffs - admiring the every detail of the pieces American in Paris designer Audra lent me was the perfect way to just get lost in something beautiful...
  • LE BRUNCH IN PARIS

    Whether you’re in France or America, there is no dispute that brunch isn’t just a meal—it’s an event. For me it’s the perfect excuse to put on something nice, get out and pay no mind to the time. Check out my favorite picks for brunch in Paris in my latest article for Lancome...
  • A ROOM WITH A VIEW

    When I moved to Paris almost six years ago I was allured by the possibility of a simple life. Living in Southern California, or imagining settling in other places like London and New York City, always left me feeling in need of more, more, more. Paris was the opposite...
  • RENDEZ-VOUS WITH LOUISE

    Louise is a young woman whose face many know before her name. On the pages of your favorite magazine or a recent campaign from a French fashion house, her doe-eyed glance and poise aren’t easily overlooked...
  • THE PROFESSIONAL

    The last two weeks my cameras have been pretty much my only accessories, doing a ton of video and photo production work for all sorts of projects. For the first time in a while, I finally feel like the quality of what I’m producing is headed in the right direction. Also for the first time in a while, I have just been too busy to let the self doubt that’s been crushing me the last couple of months resurge. For that, and the work, I am grateful…
  • SHAKESPEARE & COMPANY

    It seems a paradox that such an iconic Paris landmark as Shakespeare & Company would remind an American like me of home. Nothing about the bookstore’s antique façade, view of Notre Dame or stone-walled interiors say America. The familiarity is stacked upon its shelves as it houses the greatest words ever written in the English language, words that Americans in Paris might miss more than they would like to admit.
  • LADY & THE TRAP

    When you work as much from home as I do, it's easy to fall into a trap of spending your days in something less than lady-like. In my case it usually involves a slouchy pair of boyfriend jeans and a tee shirt that I also slept in. But, in an effort to pick myself up I've decided to try dressing up, a bit at least.
  • THAT MAGIC MOMENT

    Being a photographer is a constant evolution. My own standards are always changing, and outside factors are always pushing me to work in new ways. In the last two years though, I've felt especially compelled to adapt...

THAT MAGIC MOMENT

Being a photographer is a constant evolution. My own standards are always changing, and outside factors are always pushing me to work in new ways. I used to take hundreds and hundreds of photos around the city, just walking around Paris with my camera. As I began working more in…

PERU TRAVEL DIARY

You know those moments you’ve been looking forward to for so long that even when you’re in the plane flying towards them at 600 mph you haven’t realized that the waiting is over? That was this trip for me, a year in the making with my family. Finally I arrived…

IN THE PRESENCE OF DIAMONDS

  Normally a night in my one bedroom fifth floor walk up with a bubble bath is plenty of glamour for me, which is why I don’t always make it out at Fashion Week. But then there are some invitations that I really can’t resist.  Like those with champagne and diamonds….

VANITY & BEAUTY

Lately, I’ve been wanting to open up about beauty. With my latest projects and turning twenty-five, it feels like the right time. Then I thought, what better way  to do so than by inviting you into my very own vanity area where I get ready every day.  You see, having…
