  • I’ve been trying to put into words about how I set unrealistic expectations for myself.. but I still have no good way of describing how or why I do that. These unrealistic expectations are the reasons why I haven’t posted photos for so long. No matter how long I work on a photo, I see what’s wrong with it, over what’s beautiful in it. During this time of absence I’ve come to realize that if an image holds meaning, then it’s a photo worth sharing. Meaning. Meaningful. Meaningless. Only I can determine how to answer that question, and to which images I dictate those terms to. it’s usually based on the process of how the photo is taken, or who I’m with, or what my experience was upon taking the photo, but I think that it is going to be my new standard when I choose which images to share. blurry, bright, dark, faded, its less about perfection, but if it holds meaning, it’s an image worth sharing. I know I’ll probably get beat up again by my expectations, but hey now you know when I don’t post photos its not because I’m lazy or not putting in the work, it’s because I’m busy in a fight 🥊

This image is with my man @joncleung. This guy has sacrificed more than I can put into words, and probably more than I have given him credit for. He deferred his job for a year and has been keeping me company on the majority of my photography trips. He’s also been shooting, and we’ve been growing together in this photography journey, just as we started it together. This past year we’ve had a lot of time together, maybe even too much at times, but he’s always a good sport when I have all my crazy adventure ideas. I realize that if he didn’t take time off then none of these trips would have been the same. I wouldn’t of had anyone to share the memories of sleeping on a couch for two weeks in Hawaii with. Or the time we road tripped to the PNW, sleeping in the back of my Honda crv, waiting for the snow to stop so we could shoot. I wouldn’t have learned half the things I know now if it wasn’t for just his simple presence. & If you want to see a different perspective of what I’ve been up to, just go to his feed, we often shoot together 😝

  • It's officially SUMMER in paradise + the living is nice 'n easy.

This photo reminds me to "slow down" which is something I have a lot of trouble with. Planning is exciting for me, seeing things happen that go according to my agenda is even more exciting. Thankfully though, this year has been all about learning the art of letting go, of not expecting, of rising above that burden. I think it's human nature to want, to desire, to expect - but it can be pretty disastrous sometimes 😂😂

On a lighter note, I went swimming in the ocean yesterday for the first time in a really, really long time. And it felt amazing. Buoyant + light + free. Remind me to go back soon! 😬😅
