I've long been working on a project photographing people with objects and recently took this one of my grandmother's hands with sewing scissors that my cousin gave her at least 25 years ago.
I had the great fortune of joining a Trail Mavens weekend trip to Big Sur in September. Led by the ever-enthusiastic, enlightening, educational, effervescent Sasha Cox, I had a true getaway, where I met some fantastic women, took in new stunning landscapes, had honest campfire conversation and never checked my cell phone. By the end, it felt like I'd been gone for a week.

Toasts and cheers and fresh florals are all well and good, but I also like those remnants of a great time had.
I photographed this gorgeous wedding last year in Big Sur and am still thinking about the out-of-this-world florals.
On the way back from shooting a wedding in the Sierras, my boyfriend and I made a little detour to catch the final day of the Amadour County Fair. Among the highlights was the youth livestock auction- with kids handling 1000+ lb animals, taking pride in their work to raise animals AND all while in fantastic matching outfits. Inspiration everywhere.
These were on the wall that divided my AirBnb apartment complex from the one next door. Copenhagen: full of subtle beauty, everywhere.
