immi . a mini baby shoot.

January 9, 2013

My darling friend Nikki (you might remember her baby shower) gave birth to her beautiful daughter Immi (short for Imogen), over a month ago, and I finally got a chance to meet the little one! & I am in LOVE! Of course, I brought along my film cameras to play with, and we ended up making the visit into a fun little mini photo shoot!

I LOVE how these came out, I only shot two rolls (about 50 images total), and I am beyond thrilled. I am loving shooting film more and more — it just allows me to totally focus in the moment — instead of worrying what the images are looking like on the back of the camera! Plus it just feels truer to my heart. :) Prepare for various more film images to come!

There is nothing better than a strong friendship — friends that support & balance one another, especially. Audrey & Belinda have such a special friendship, and it was a great joy to do this photo shoot for them. As two strong, beautiful yogini’s, these ladies are embarking on new chapters of their lives — starting a new venture (One Love Encinitas) as well as embracing a new decade in their lives. They wanted to do this shoot to celebrate those things, which I think is a good of reason as any to get pretty and have some fun in front of the camera!

Many thanks to Amanda of Thorne Artisty for working her magic & providing hair, makeup & wardrobe styling.

I heart her. One of my best friends. We danced in the forest for her birthday and took a bazillion photos of one another. See the previous post & photo here.

I realize to some of you, these frolics are something ‘new’ because I haven’t really ever posted them on this blog. But we have been doing them for a few years now, and it’s such a gratifying experience, mainly because we get the chance to explore new places, take a massive amount of photos of one another, and get all gussied up for the whole process. ;) Total fun and lets us expand our creative juices with no expectations attached. :)

More to come!

a few weekends ago, one of my best friends, jasmine and i took off to the woods and rented a cabin for her birthday. what ensued was deep talks over booze, hours of stargazing, and lots of picture-taking. especially of one another. in silly dresses. cause that’s how we roll. (check out her photos of me)

in this image, the last moments of light were leaving us when the idea came up to start sticking these wild oats into her hair. it was kind of magical, i think.

more to come. *
