Life is a Winding Road. Cali is far from Home.


What's a girl to do? Part of me is yearning to make the plunge- drop everything, move to LA, and try my wings in the high fashion world while the other side of me is completely content with my current state of southern comfort. (No pun intended) I mean what more could I ask for really? I live just minutes away from the most amazing people in my life and am making beautiful pictures full time for a living.

However, a few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to pay a visit to LA and work with Matthew Jordan Smith, a world renowned fashion and beauty photographer who has recently been featured on AMERICAS NEXT TOP MODEL. I could not have asked for a better week, he was such a down-to-earth individual, who unlike many top photographers was completely willing to help out the little people who are new to the industry.

No only that, I was able to visit some of the sweetest spots in sunny California. We cruised down Pacific Coast Highway with the windows down all the way to Malibu. Talk about one fine ride. It was invigorating. Also, made it up to the Getty museum and braved night surfing for the first time. Somehow I sqeezed myself into a wetsuit, ha, that was a sight.

LA was such a tease, leaves me unsatisfied and craving more.... more of the dream

Step out of the comfort zone and begin to float along the winds of fate. The experiences there will forever change you in ways that you can't even imagine.
Home will always be there when you need something to run back to, but this opportunity sounds amazing.
Good luck! :)
