Natasha // Tempe Maple Ash

This is my friend Natasha whom I met while being counselors at summer church camp. Watch out world because she’s a super talented actress on the rise with her trusty ukulele. We did a classy Kodak Portra film session in the Tempe Maple-Ash neighborhood and I was so ecstatic to get this film back! Photographing her on film really reflects her warm and loving personality. I’m looking forward to hearing down the line all the awesome things she accomplishes. Enjoy these photos 🙂

Miki and Jacob Engagement // Chinese Cultural Center

“Meet me in Paris and then we’ll fly to Hong Kong. We’ll walk through the city parks on brick pathways under rice paper umbrellas. We’ll take wooden bridges over khoi fish in jade crystal ponds. I’ll buy you your favorite milk tea with those sweet gummy tapioca balls. And we’ll just sit and laugh under the warn wintery sun.”

Congrats to Miki and Jacob on their engagement! Thank you for allowing me to capture your engagement photos on Kodak Portra 400 film. I love these photos because the film makes it look like an 80s kung fu movie or something lol. Anyways, enjoy. 🙂

Tucson // Kodak Portra 400

Goodbye two thousand fifteen. Hello, two thousand sixteen! Another year gone and much to anticipate for the next. New levels of creativity, exploration and really digging into all that’s in store. Many have asked me what kind of resolutions I made, and it’s always such a hard question to answer. One thing I know is more photo. Getting better at my craft and really story telling openly and honestly as much as I can. Love more. Serve more. Just living life to its fullest.

Enjoy. 🙂
