Cold May

I never thought I’d be wearing a turtleneck in May, but this is the coldest May I’ve ever experienced since moving to California 10 years ago. It’s kind of ironic because I bought a bunch of wintry items during end-of-season sales and I get to wear them all now instead of waiting until next year. Muahahaha. I keep wishing for warm weather, but know that I’ll probably be over it in 2.5 days. At least it’s staying light out super late. These photos were taken close to 8 pm (whaaat?!).

I’ve been very into necklaces with tiny pendants and I love this pearl necklace from AUrate even more in person than online. It’s such a good everyday necklace that goes with a wide variety of outfits.

I’m super lazy and don’t like to have to buckle in straps or tie shoelaces, so I know these Mohinders slides are going to be a go-to this summer.

2.5 days in Colorado

Colorado in 2.5 Days

Two weeks ago, I took a weekend trip to Colorado. My dad’s manager is based in Denver, so my mom and I tagged along on his business trip. The trip was short and last-minute, so this is by no means a comprehensive travel guide of the city and its surrounding areas, but rather a here’s-how-much-we-packed-into-2.5-days recap. I absolutely LOVED Colorado and want to go back for sure—and I’ll be certain to do a better job creating a thorough guide of the city when I do.

I’d never been to Colorado and was awed by the beautiful, mountainous terrain that we spent more time in the surrounding nature than in the actual city of Denver. Growing up in Connecticut, we didn’t have mountains. We had rolling hills and lots of rocks, but nothing like the rock formations of Denver. Even nothing I’ve seen in California compares to the red rocks of Denver.

DAY 1

Colorado in 2.5 Days

The first thing we did when we flew into Denver was go to the Degas exhibit at the Denver Art Museum. The fact there was a Degas exhibit during my dad’s tentative travel dates gave impetus for me wanting to visit Denver in the first place. Degas’s paintings of the ballet dancers were some of the first pieces of fine art I was introduced to as a little girl.

This Fearless Love

I met Savannah, a wedding photographer visiting from Denver, when we were both part of the live audience for Creative Live‘s social media week. She wanted to get some lifestyle shots while she was here and I was down to model while showing her around San Francisco. I love shooting with other people because it’s a way to hang out/chat/exchange creative ideas while still accomplishing a task at hand. We took full advantage of the beach since she lives in Colorado, so we shot at Crissy Field, which has the iconic view of the Golden Gate Bridge.

The weather was absolutely perfect and—AND it was just days before a full moon, so the moon looked absolutely radiant against the sky. That night happened to be the warmest day of the week, so there were people jogging, walking dogs, picnicking, and even a boyfriend playing the ukelele while his girlfriend sang to the music. In moments like these, you realize that happiness is contagious—you can’t help but look at the dogs doing sniffing dances, groups of friends laughing over sandwiches and stories, and the boyfriend playing the ukelele while the girlfriend sang, all backlit by the setting sun without taking a mental picture and filing it under “unadulterated bliss.”

When I met Savannah, I’d never been to Colorado, but funny enough, I just came back from a long weekend trip to Denver and loved it! (I’ll share my pics from the trip next week!)

If you’re in the Denver area and need engagement, wedding, or any type of lifestyle photos taken, I definitely recommend hitting Savannah up! She is so sweet, talented, and her color editing is off the charts. She’s visiting San Francisco again in July and we are already planning another shoot together!
