// bhante sujatha



When you get a last minute phone call, asking you to shoot a Buddhist Monk on the shores of Lake Tahoe at 7am before he catches his flight to head home, the answer is always, a resounding, yes.

We only had about a hour and the weather was pretty dang unpredictable, but good grief what a beautiful hour that was.

Being in the presence of Bhante stimulates a special kinda magic. The energy and peace his tiny little being possesses is palpable and raw. My only complaint was not having more time to just sit, listen and absorb all that I could. Instead, we hopped around Crystal Bay and the Meadows, mostly in silence, both in awe of the beauty that spring morning provided.  It truly was a privilege to have been asked to lend my craft to this special man and his cause.  I encourage everyone to take a peek into the work he does and the loving kindness he is seeking to spread.


May you be well, happy and peaceful.






killin it. // moni thompson.


this right here, is a powerful female.

uniquely herself, fiercely strong and abundantly kind. moni is the kinda gal that catches your eye n' makes ya wonder. she reminds you what authenticity looks like, and sparks that light deep down inside, that reminds us all to be real. to just be, unapologetically, ourselves. 

   i've been aiming to get her fab face in front of my camera for dayyyz and damn if it's not a treat to shoot a women with confidence.  movin freely about her home, drinkin wine, chattin and snappin. it's oh so refreshing to document a genuine spirit in a space which reflects that unique soul and i so dig having these sessions in the homes of my clients. home facilitates that physiological tranquility. it allows my subject to just feel at ease and yields the energy of their truest self to surround them. this is when that raw inner light really shines.

this is a celebration of YOU moni girl.  a gentle reminder to listen to the pure pull of your heart. to continue to tap into your truest self and to keep livn life the way YOU want.

 big love ya boss.
