Zocumentary – Day in the Life Documentary Family Session in Los Angeles

Zocumentary – Day in the Life Documentary Family Session in Los Angeles

I have been so very eager to share this day in the life session!  Today is the day!

Heidi and and her son Zoli allowed me into their home for a day to capture their typical routines, their moments together that usually go unseen by the outside world.  These moments are oh so precious and fleeting, it is a dream come true for me to do this type of meaningful documentation.

Enjoy!

Salem Art Works (SAW)

Salem Art Works (SAW)

I’m living in Brooklyn for the month with one of my best friends (the lovely lady pictured below) and my best doggie friend (the handsome pooch pictured below her).  We decided to road trip up north to Salem, NY last weekend and were luckily able to couchsurf with friends that are currently doing artist’s residencies with Salem Art Works.

What a treat for the senses!  Sculptures big and small cover the property, a number of nearby rivers to dip in, trees that seem too green to be real (or maybe I’ve just spent too much time in the city?)…I have such respect for the people who can build something of beauty from nothing.

Check out their website for more information (they have workshops!) – http://www.salemartworks.org/
