Long Lost Buddies Reunited! Lamees

Today, I was reunited with one of my oldest friends of all time, Lamees.  We were coworkers at the first portrait studio I ever worked at when I was 17 years old.  She’s absolutely one of the coolest chicks I’ve ever known…  super smart, always positive, and always up for an adventure.  You can imagine my excitement when I found out 2 weeks ago she’s now living in my old hood in Santa Monica!  We spent the better part of the morning reconnecting, as we rode horseback through the Malibu mountains, followed by a quick photo session, and trip to the pumpkin patch.  Here’s a little peek at our day!

After horseback riding, we took some pictures of Lamees at one of my favorite photo locations, Paramount Ranch.  One of the coolest parts of this spot is the variety of textures and colors with scenes out of old western movie sets.

I love that the Hotel Mud Bug had hay-bales on their decks.  What a perfect location for October pictures.  It might be a good time to mention for the quality guys out there, this lady is looking for her Mr. Right.  Contact me for her info if you are tall, dark, and handsome!  😉

Afterwards we went over to the pumpkin patch.  It turns out, I ended up buying the first pumpkin Lamees sat on!  (Totally didn’t realize it until I got around to editing the pictures.)  I really love the bright red/ orange vibrance.

Pura Vida Costa Rica!

This past week, I traveled to Costa Rica to capture event coverage for Playstation during their annual conference.  It was an amazing experience traveling out of the country, eating some amazing food, and lots of fun adventures!  On the first morning, we woke up at 5:30am to see the monkeys, but couldn’t find them.  Instead I took this photo of a pretty butterfly.

My favorite lunch, sea-bass ceviche.  Desserts were also amazing!
