natalie & ian | engagement session sneak peek!

the newest member of my creative team

hello there!

earlier this week, in the midst of busy season (weddings every weekend), my laptop died. i knew i needed a replacement, and quickly, so i decided to finally make the switch to a mac: a change i’ve been wanting to make for years now ;).

15 inch macbook pro with retina display

my beautiful new macbook pro arrived yesterday, and everything thus far is better: the sound quality is better, the display is better, the speed is better. needless to say, i am pretty excited and oh-so grateful.

i can’t wait to see what art my new macbook & i are going to create together.

do you have any mac-owner tips to share?? leave a comment and spread the love!

i hope you have a wonderful weekend!

paulina

it’s no secret around here that i love jewelry. i also am a fan of artisans and craftsmen/women.

i am always on the lookout on instagram for new creatives to follow. one day i stumbled across emma of bound.la’s instagram, and i was hooked! a little over a week ago, she posted a trivia contest about her architecturally-inspired jewelry line, and the first few people who answered the question right would win a free pair of earrings!!

well, i won!!

check out these beauties! (also, props to emma for her packaging! ;) the earrings came on a leather strip in a cheetah print pouch. fancy.)

check out bound.la’s site to see more of her line! some of my favorites are apex, duplex, the trifecta necklace, radius, & the flyaway earrings (clearly, i have quite a few favorites! ;))

are you a creative small business owner? leave your link in the comments and tell us about yourself!

have a wonderful monday!

september sneak peeks

big sur wedding photographer sunset photo

just in case you haven’t seen enough pretty things this week, i thought i’d share a few sneak peeks from all the work i’ve been shooting this summer!

up first is one from a sweet outdoor DIY wedding that i assisted maggie with! i absolutely love this image of the bride. and her florals! peonies, anyone??!

peony bouquet photo

next are some sneak peeks from big sur!!! big sur is one of my dream locations, and i’m so excited that i was able to travel there to shoot an engagement session with grace baek! (i definitely want to shoot an intimate wedding or elopement there someday.)

i can’t wait to share the rest of this shoot with you when the time comes! i must admit i’m not a big outdoorsy person (i’m much more of a loft-concrete-exposed brick-industrial chic kind of girl), but it’s always nice to reconnect with nature and get some fresh air and THOSE VIEWS… wow.

have a first look…
