Just wrapping up a fun shoot in Oakland for Sunset magazine, and in a few hours headed to a farm in North Carolina. I really hope there are some baby goats there. This is a behind the scenes shot from Pennyroyal Farm in one of my favorite towns in California, the idyllic oasis of Boonville in Mendocino County. Go there for amazing cheese and a glimpse of goat heaven.

I’m not afraid to admit that I love LA. I’ll be working here all week, staying in a great house in Santa Monica that I rented for myself and the crew. I get tired of hotels, and it’s fun to pretend I live here for a little while… Here are a few images from another recent shoot down south.

New work for the latest Kinfolk Magazine- I’m honored to be a part of this beautiful issue. We had the best time shooting at the Ramen Shop in Oakland, and the food and cocktails are incredible. Many thanks to JJ, Sam, Reyneil and their great staff at the Ramen Shop, and to Aya Muto for the writing the story and making it all happen! As always, Lisa Moir did a beautiful job styling.

Happy long weekend! Here is some new work for Joie de Vivre hotels- we had the best week in Oahu shooting this! Many thanks to my great crew and my friend Mike McHale of Hawaii Prop Rentals for the perfect Vespa. 

Seattle- back from a lovely trip to Seattle for GQ magazine (under wraps for a while). Here are some images from a Seattle shoot last year- a coffee centric journey from Seattle to Portland for Japan’s Air Nippon.

Gas Works Park- Seattle.
After shooting in Hawaii and then heading straight to a job in Mexico, I finally spent a much needed week at home. Now, off to Seattle, one of my favorite cities.

I’ve been on the road for the last month for Hyatt Resorts, with a few editorial travel jobs in the mix- Lake Tahoe, Colorado, Mendocino, right now the Gulf Coast of Florida, next week New York. I’ll stop in San Francisco for quick visit with my favorite crew- my husband and my dog, then I’m off to Oahu for a lifestyle shoot, and then staight to Tulum, Mexico via a hellaciously indirect flight. It’s everything you would imagine- fun, exhausting, stimulating to be in such different places, lovely to go from snowstorms to tropical waters, interesting to get a glimpse of such different communities and landscapes. Give me a shout if you want to meet me in NY next week, I’m taking meetings. Check out my Instagram feed for more. 

Here is a sunny image from California to welcome spring, though I’m working in Colorado this week and  hoping for snow!
