London, Brussels & Bruges

It felt amazing to travel again this Spring and to do part of the trip on my own. The weather was perfect and all the towns were jumping with tourists. I had pretty low expectations for my first time visit to Brussels but it ended up being lovely and fun, possibly the highlight of my […]

A New Year

It’s January… which can be a bit of a let down after all the indulgences of the holidays. Twinkle lights and Baileys have given way to To-Do lists and lemon water. I like that though – moving gently into a new year with some structure and common sense. I am lucky to live in a […]

A Swoony Little Trip to London and Scotland

We’ve just returned from a lovely vacation in the UK. I had been to Scotland before a long time ago but not for more than a day or so (on a tour). It was great to return and see a few familiar places and a few new ones too. I love Scotland. I even ate […]

Summer Goodness

This summer has gone by pretty quickly and I haven’t been up to too much. Mostly I’ve been trying to enjoy the good things about summer in my own little way.

My Kindle + the library = summer goodness. I’m not a huge fan of summer in this town, because it’s pretty scorchy, right? […]

Wedding On The Coast

Busy processing photos from a recent wedding shoot. Lovely spot near Half Moon Bay… I’m still daydreaming about moving closer to the ocean.

We were so lucky this year to be able to visit England during (our) Thanksgiving week. Most places had their Christmas lights up already and shop windows were fabulously decorated. Having been to England a few times now and with an English husband, I didn’t tend to do a lot of typical touristy things […]

Day Trip from Sacramento to Napa

We decided, rather last minute, to head over to Napa for a bit of late afternoon beauty and aspirational living. Armed with New Order’s greatest hits and not a lot of cash, we followed highway 12 to 29 and made a beeline for St. Helena. We began, by mistake, at the lovely Ristorante Tra […]

Start Where You Are…

Making Soup In Lieu of Working

Let’s face it… I have a lot of stuff I could be doing (notice I didn’t say should) but I decided to take a few hours off to make soup and watch Jamie At Home episodes on the Cooking Channel. Some would say this was not a wise choice… especially as freelance work has […]

Love And Magazines

This is from my recent shoot with the adorable Janeen. She wanted a photo for her boyfriend for Valentine’s Day. The above is an outtake (and my tribute to Arthur Elgort!).

January is one of my favorite months of the year. Not only is it a time of renewal and shedding the overindulgences of […]
