This past October, I had the opportunity to shoot Desert Daze for Melted Magazine. We decided to make a trip out of it and here are some photos on the side of the festival I dug up- 35mm I haven't shared. Plus, a short instax series on all of the Days Inn motels we stayed at. I'll never stop photographing motels and hotels. I'll also never stop traveling. I'm super excited for 2018.
Thanks for always looking at things I make. <3
Finally sharing photos from my morning shoot with NoNo in August. And yes, just call her that.
Not only do I absolutely love photographing people in their personal spaces/homes, I love photographing a way of living with their music and idols. I need to do it. It's a part of my making work, because I've never related more than to those people. Peep inside NoNo's room for great passion for all things music and a sweet way of living in and with her inspirations.
I'm so glad she asked me to do this because it's right up my alley and she is the best to work and hang out with. I had such a time talking about our favorite no wave bands, learning about her obsessions and stories behind her treasures.
If you're dying to catch a band around town that's not quite like the others... catch a Trashlight show. If you're into noisey pedals, 80s goth soundscapes, darkwave... or anything along those lines... you're in for a unique treat from these pixies.
Finally made it out to photograph the band this past Friday at Atomic for Seaux LA's Costumes and Tunes party.

So, Saturday night, you decided to order sushi and stay in to watch Hot Rod or something. Why? Why did you do that? You missed one of the best shows that was happening around Baton Rouge!
A packed house said farewell to one of the most charming bands and group of friends of all time, Mr. San Francisco. They performed their last show at Atomic before having to go separate ways for college.
Allison asked me to document her last show with them and I'm so glad that I did. Dreamy, fun pop songs mixed with layered vocals, Frank Ocean and Parquet Courts covers and a final sing-a-long? Yeesssss.
Peep the recap below!
How cute are these siblings? The night was filled with 'thank yous' from one bandmate to another. It was so openly sentimental that I don't think anyone attending ever stopped smiling... ever. It was warm.
Ronni is watching me type this and just yelled "tender atmosphere!" So, if that's a recap for you.
That 'Content Nausea' cover got everyone wiiiiiild. Who doesn't love Parkay Quarts?
