Night Owls for Spaces In-Between
These images are from a commission from the first issue of a beauuuutiful new European magazine called Spaces In-Between. I was hired to create an essay on LA Women at night with a bit of a noir feel and, honestly, I wish I had another week or two to work on it (I only had […]
David and I went to Cuba to celebrate our 11th anniversary. It’d been far too long since we’d traveled on a non-work and non-family trip. These are just my personal photos from our wanderings in Havana, Trinidad and Cienfuegos.
The Fountain of Youth: Parade
(First off: I haven’t blogged here in 6 months. There are a couple of good reasons (excuses) for that and they are: First, I post a lot on Instagram in realtime, follow me there, second off I have been very busy shooting for and running my other photography business with my husband David Walter Banks […]
A Reminder to Remember on Film
Time has gotten more slippery recently. Work has started to consume more of me (or my time, I suppose), which actually makes me quite happy because I’m one of those few lucky humans who happens to love (obsess over) her job. But still, it’s hard to process everything when it passes by so quickly and […]
The Central Coast + David’s Birthday

My best friend since I was in elementary school came from Charleston to explore Southern California with me. We laughed until we cried next to our camp fire in Joshua Tree, explored gardens in Palm Springs and lay in the sand in Malibu, and naturally I made her pose in the pretty light a couple […]
Amber + A Field of Gold
I love California. I moved here about a year and a half ago and have explored all over–deserts, forests, beaches. The diverse landscapes have been so visually inspiring to me. (If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen David’s and my #westcoastexplorersclub posts, I’m sure. It’s pretty obvious that we really love our new home.) […]
The Fountain of Youth
This is the start of a new project on The Fountain of Youth Spa and RV Park in the middle of nowhere in the desert of Southern California, just 6.5 miles from the fish bone covered shore of the apocalyptic Salton Sea. This group of photos is only from two days and two nights that […]
Memphis: Music Eden
In 2011, I went to Memphis with a writer for a story about rap in Memphis for FADER. I’d never been to the city before and was dumbfounded by the music, everywhere. It spilled into streets from garages, cars, clubs, karaoke halls. I knew I had to come back.
