my close friends would probably tell you i’m really easy to get jumpscared. but oh hunny, i get jumpscared. so. easily. i’ve never successfully finished one scary movie, well of course, when a single tap on the shoulder is enough to make me do a little jump.
but today felt different, i got tapped on the shoulders twice. TWICE. and i didn’t flinch physically for neither of those times. i flinched on the inside, for the first time, for a very different reason.
this is the 3rd(technically 4th)week of school, yet i really haven’t established any legit friendship other than my roommates. no i’m not even kidding i wish i was. so hell, why would anybody ever tap on my shoulders or even attempt to talk to me at all? but today two of my new friends in this school did. i took this as a sign that showed me they are finally comfortable enough to stop me from walking away and are comfortable enough to greet me as a friend. A FRIEND. ya girl made FRIENDS!! so thank you jasmine and conan, i know you’ll not see this but xx thanks
(hey i know this is silly but i’m silly)
SEASONS // Recently my friends and I did a little photoshoot before our meeting as we normally do. We were excited about the season of Fall and also the sense of entering a new season for Synced Culture. It’s easy to see the change in between seasons. It’s obvious in the colors of nature. People get excited about sweater weather in the Fall but in San Diego it was still 90 degrees this week. It can be confusing. Are we in Fall or not? The galaxy alignment is clear that we are. How about seasons of life. Sometimes you see life changing and you can’t explain it but you sense something is shifting. For a while I would struggle with change but I can say that living a life dependent on others support and giving has caused me to embrace seasons and embrace change. I’m not saying it’s easy for me. It’s actually still painful at times but I have this hope that the God of the universe is in complete control and after all, the Bible teaches that we are God’s masterpiece. He’s literally writing a poem through our lives individually and it’s His story that we are living out. I encourage you to embrace the season whether it’s a good or hard one that you’re in, there’s hope in Jesus.
And now for a shameless plug. Message me if you need any Lifestyle, Senior Portraits, Family, Thanksgiving, Christmas or any type of photography.

Here's another throwback to a shoot with @ao.warner! I normally don't like shooting during the middle of the day but this shoot turned out sooo good. We found a bridge that provided the perfect shade for some clean shots 👌🏾
When I was an outdoor education instructor, I used to tell the kids that when the aspen trees turned yellow in the autumn, the leaves acquired a citrus/lemon taste. Naturally, they all stuck Aspen leaves in their mouth and I would laugh at them and they would never trust me again 🍁
