Hey friends! I’ve been wanting to do this post for a while and share some of my favorite locations to view downtown Los Angeles. It was fun to shoot this over president’s day weekend. I couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather to view and photograph the city of angels.

In no particular order, here are my favorite locations to view DTLA. I hope you get a chance to check these out personally. Los Angeles is so beautiful. Read More..

Bonjour! It’s been a long time my friends. I posted about going to Paris back in January, I can’t believe that was 11 months ago. One of my dreams did come true and I went to Paris back in April. It was so beautiful and perfect, that I am already daydreaming of going back. I did the usual sightseeing that anyone new to Paris would do. Check out my photo diary below of a few of the places I visited.   

I stayed in the 6th arrondissement of Paris. The apartment I rented was two blocks away from one of Paris’ beautiful parks, the Jardin du Luxembourg. With it being so close, many mornings I would grab a croissant and espresso—as the locals say, “un café-croissant”—from La Parisienne and take a stroll through the Jardin du Luxembourg. Read More..


Going to Paris


Hola friends! One of my dreams has come true! I’m going to Paris. I will be traveling there this spring. The trip is still coming to life, but so far I fly into Paris and fly out of Copenhagen. I’m really looking forward to walking around the streets of Paris and living like a Parisian for a few days. I’m also excited to revisit Copenhagen, this time, during the spring. I have time during my trip to stop in one other city, I’m leaning towards Amsterdam. I would love to hear your recommendations for any of these cities! Read More..
