spent time in columbus with my good friend + photog masa.
mornings with xanna.
my first morning in my new home, i decided to celebrate by taking advantage of my new beautiful light.
loved portland + ace hotel + stump town shoot + kinfolk meeting + city view + a bathtub.
did not love leaving, another post for another day.
day sixteen through day seventeen //
going to be honest and say that today was hard.
what was hard about it is that it has been so dang good. after waking up in jessicas apartment and walking to coffee, meeting her friends for lunch, then another for my second coffee , a beautiful shoot at the baths + finally dinner with old friends, i feel so loved, and am confident san fran has some of the nicest people around. especially your friends jess, keep them around. sad I missed you, but thanks for lending me your life.
my love for the west coast is so deep, that i really cannot shake the fact that i simply don’t want to leave. not just a oh I love it here type thing. i truly am sad to go. i know this journey has been what you could call a vacation, but i’ve viewed it differently. and because of it, I’ve experienced community, friends, challenging conversation, and an experience like one would live in each city.
so before i offend the place i currently call home, ill stop and think things through as i have been the past few days. and get back to y’all soon. california has done it again.
day fifteen //
put drive up the coast of california on your list.
one of the coolest, most beautiful things i’ve ever done. thankful to get to stop one thousand times, for new roadtrip tunes by asgeir, a climb down to hide in little part of the cliff, fog rolling in + a grilled cheese with tomato jam for lunch.
i simply should let the images explain my day
day twelve - day fourteen //
lumping these together. such a fun experience at photo field trip. got to learn from, hang with, shoot with photographers that i so look up to. and even better make new friends, who are all so stinkin talented.
truly felt like camp, except grown up, with tons of creatives and a really amazing dance part to close it out.
leaving inspired and super challenged.

day eleven // i wasn’t ready to leave la, but ptl i was headed here. the ace hotel + swim club in palm springs.
i feel like this place holds everything that i love in its pretty hands. ace does things with excellence, and i will support them wherever i go.
spent most the day either in my robe by the fire on my porch, or at the pool getting totally burnt.
headed to friends in pasedena for the next night on my trek to santa barbara. love.
spent today in all these places.
woke up in sallys amazing home. (ptl for friends like matt vaughn)
coffee at intelligentsia.
hopped over to my fave store in silver lake reform school.
nails did at olive and june.
snacks at eat drink americano.
late night shopping at american apparel flea.
dinner + sunset with sweet new friend sarah shreaves.
brought to you by my phone. because i left my camera at home today, on purpose.
