humbled in honey: a flashback to the virginia mountains.

last summer, i got the wonderful opportunity to photograph bee hives in the mountains of virginia. spending time with honeybees and watching their process gave me a bit of a creative breakthrough--they taught me lessons of perseverance, humility, and faith in my craft. nothing stopped them from getting their work done and i took that to heart! those summer days stayed with me and are ultimately the inspiration behind my new brand and how i approach my creative workflow.

i'm forever grateful for the bees.

I visited the west coast and got to meet some long-time friends for the first time!

Spending just four days in LA didn't seem like long enough--I saw so much but still left wanting more. Although the weather was rainy for half of my trip, seeing the sun come out and making all the streets and palm trees shine left me breathless. Amazing food (tried elote and *omg*), great friendships, and a beautiful city.

 All the songs I've heard about LA are pretty accurate; if I were a native, I would live and die there too.
