I write this with such a full heart. this video for Cheridomingo was so fun to create, shooting in slow motion, singing in fast motion, laughs and indie film vibes. I wanted this to feel like one of my favorite movies, call me by your name; heavy grain, soft focus, muted blues and reds. I wanted it to feel like a memory from a different time, as the song was written about a past life, to be slightly removed and distant. it’s painful yet beautiful. this is my favorite song off of the record, Feelings, as it holds so much weight in the lyrics. I love this family so much. so so much ❤️🍒

icehouse canyon

super spontaneous hiking trip with anthony, dahlia and will to see the snow after this big storm that just came through. it was so pretty!! hiked through icehouse canyon saddle through streams and waterfalls, and huge blankets of beautiful white snow. fresh and clean, like little pillows of water hugging the mountains. one of my favorite things is catching a photo of when the light shines through the plants and casts shadows on the snow, almost as if it’s sparkling.   

SOMEWHERE

I cant even begin to wrap my head around this one. Ive been a fan of La Dispute for so many years and to be able to photograph them has always been a huge goal of mine. Last night, watching them support Circa was a beautiful moment, heads bobbing, people swaying. Such Small Hands.

STOP THE FUCKING CAR

Last night, Circa Survive came through LA with one of my favorite bands La Dispute. I was able to capture this show and I really can’t decide which photos pick but i’ll throw a few in here. What an incredible year it has been being able to photograph them twice!

a film portrait

my beautiful friend taylor took this photo of me while we were at a show, i think in echo park? i cant remember. i’m always weird about having photos of myself taken, maybe that’s why i hide behind my camera. but this is film, kodak portra, and it makes me love this even more.

a mood

there’s something really therapeutic about moving into a new space. throwing away things you no longer need and making room for new. a little cave of mine.

help is written in the sand

been working on this music video for cheridomingo lately. my perfectionist side of me wants the color to be just right; the feeling of a memory, slightly removed from it all, almost like you’re viewing it from a distance. i’ve been obsessing, back and forth through different looks trying to find the most pleasing palette. we shot this at dahlia’s house in san pedro, and her beautiful taste in interior decorating really gave this a vibe i’m all about. mel styled the guys and i couldn’t be more pleased with it. the more and more i color, the more and more i wish i was doing this more. giving vibes and creating moods. i love making art so much.

photoshoot day y’all

I've been working in West Hollywood for about 4 months now, and sometimes I take a different route home and I drive past this really fun pink building on melrose. There is always a huge crowd of people out front taking photos and I thought how cool it would be to photograph Cheridomingo in front of this pink wall. So, here there are, mixed with some other cool shots we got walking around melrose blvd. 

 

500 days of summer

this little dive bar in downtown la always gives me the good feels. pirate themed, good cider, great food, and always fun music. cheridomingo played last night, and these photos came out really good. very reminiscent of the scene in 500 days of summer.

 

a music photography magazine

damn. i’ve never had my work printed or published before and to be apart of this incredible project along side all of these other crazy good music photographers feels so good. this has inspired me to print more of my work so i’m going to make this a goal! thank you adam for including me in this magazine!! 

birthday in july

this whole week has been magical. celebrating anthony’s birthday, we saw anthony green play a fantastic show with good old war and the found wild, explored the magical castle, watched cheridomingo play a show in a cool loft, had incredible french food in silverlake, slept on a boat, and hung out with our best friends! if i could do this all over again, i would. i’m so lucky to have this guy in my life and that i get to be apart of his ❤️
