Gosh I love that word. It sounds exactly like what it means. :)

Yesterday, Jimmy and I spontaneously decided to go shooting. Literally. We were sitting on the couch and I suggested we take advantage of the beautiful light outside, and we were on our way 5 minutes later. It’s been awhile since we’ve just made the effort to break away and let our cameras go. We wound up in downtown Hollywood (our favorite spot). I know I sound like a broken record, but it really is a magical place. There are so many colors, fields, open spaces, textures, industrial buildings, etc etc. I always find something new when I go. Plus, it has Kilwin’s. And we all know how I feel about that.

We found this AWESOME pseudo-field in between these run down houses. We took advantage :)

Below, I used Totally Rad's "Luxe (soft)", Kevin Kubota's "Kiyoko Punch" and Totally Rad's "Boutwell Magic Glasses". I love the soft-cross processed look with purple tones. I'm so picky about Xpro actions and none really ever satisfy me, but I like what I got here when I tried to make my own.

Can I just say that this one below is my favorite picture that I've ever taken of Jimmy. E V E R. He looks so rugged and strong...  ambient lighting... with a film camera in his hand no less. I love this man. 

Out of focus, but I don't care.

These are the moments that make me happiest. Whenever we are out "frolicking" (love that word) in broken down areas and inspiration hits us, I can't imagine any other place I would want to be. I may have this thing under my name, but Jimmy is literally the backbone to every thing I do. He encourages me constantly and is my #1 fan. He also pushes me to do things that I may not want to do... but in the end they wind up fantastic. He is always in the background, smiling while I do my thing. He is also my protector, and watches out for me when things go wrong. I couldn't imagine doing this without him.

Angels and Airwaves said it best: I can't live, I can't breathe, unless you do this with me...



P.S. - I’m also in the process of editing a wedding that I shot last week…  here’s a sneak peek ! 

Much better than the B&G's hands on a pillow or something, don't you think?
