Let me just start with the fact that I’m obsessed with Old Town Calabasas. SO. CUTE >> Clay and I are hoping to actually go up there for a farmer’s market on the weekend (thanks Jazz for the recommendation) and browse the cutie little area. From the old buildings, quaint community to the smooth cup of coffee at Pedalers— it’s just perfect. I can imagine coffee in hand now.
LOCATION // Calabasas, California x Pedalers Fork
CLIENT // CJLA x Carly Jean Los Angeles (pssst do yourself a favor and give them a follow on insta. they’ll basically do your wardrobe shopping for you!)
A few months back I was approached by the sweet women of this incredible company. Of course I'm all about a good clean brand of clothing, but I'm also all about a group of women who are out for the good of others. That's what the ladies at CJLA are all about. Encouraging other women. I love these ladies and what they're all about.
This shoot allowed me to creatively express myself, share their brand + dive into commercial photography.

All I have to say is that when you get a message on instagram from a pro baseball player (guys I know about zero when it comes to sports) telling you how head over heals he is for his girl Kami, you've got to respond right away. :) Kami and Trevor, I'm so excited to share your story with everyone, it's uniquely beautiful and written by God. Such a good story!! Also, #goroyals 🤩

I feel like everyone wants to know a more personal side of the person they see online. I mean, who doesn't? I wanted to share these photos of me and my sweet Zoe and Cohen for a few reasons. I spend much more of my time durning everyday serving, playing and teaching these two sweet faces. Photography only takes up probably 20% of my week (when you're a mom you've got owning a business down to a science!! haha). These guys make my real job being their mama and I love that! I feel like no one sees that from the other side of the screen. All they see is wedding photos, travel adventures and coffee dates out…

"With me being gone for 12 weeks for clinicals, I was beyond excited to not only spend a weekend with Jake, but actually marrying him was a dream. Knowing that the next time he saw me would be in my wedding dress made me feel like I felt the night before our first date. I had butterflies and knots in my stomach. I was pacing the room feeling like time was going by so slow. Finally, I was lead to the greenhouse where he was waiting for me. The instant he turned around and showed me that smile, any nerves or apprehensions about the day just disappeared. All I have ever wanted in life is to be his, and from the moment he turned around, that’s all I felt…his. People keep asking me how I felt on this day and there’s really only one word to describe how I felt and how I continue to feel in our marriage. I feel loved, I feel cherished, I feel undeniably his." -Jordane
