Announcing: Women Who Work LA


I have embarked on a new project that I’ve been really excited about and can’t wait to share it with you!

It was born out of the release of Ivanka Trump’s new book. And I think we all know how that went. I was so frustrated, like so many, by the blatant exclusion of women of color, women with two (or three!) jobs, and the lack of ACTUAL career advice.

So, in response, I wanted to photograph working women from all walks of life and circumstance. Whether it be working moms, working grandmothers, or women who are just starting out in their careers.

I hear so many stories about women juggling multiple jobs while supporting their family, or women who are going through a rough patch in their career, not knowing if what they’re doing is right for them. As women, we’re complex, passionate, and we have a million stories to tell. And this is the space to show the world who they are and where they’ve been.

If you know a woman who should be featured, just email me: womenwhoworkla@gmail.com

#003 Morro Bay Day 2

Murray took a dip in the ocean and frolicked in the sand.

Day two in Morro Bay consisted of long walks on the beach and taking in the natural wildlife! And Murray took a dip in the Pacific Ocean, his favorite of the oceans. Got some lunch at Frankie and Lola’s , don’t forget to try the avocado tri-tip, it’s amazing. Then the three of us took a much needed nap.


After our epic naps, we began to explore this cute little town. And do they have some gems. This garden shop was so beautiful and had so many succulents, will definitely stop by on my way back home.


Then walked into the most unique shop on embarcadero, the Shell Shop. I know it sounds cheesy and touristy, but don’t be fooled, this place is for the serious shell collector, no amateurs allowed.


After shell shopping, we took Murray on his first boat ride. Crossing my fingers he doesn’t get sea sick, we began our journey exploring the bay and taking in the wildlife. Sea otters and sea lions are abundant, and I’m sure if you go further outside the bay you’ll spot some whales during whale watching season. My favorite of all the seasons. Who doesn’t love a whale?
