- BEACH ENGAGEMENT SHOOT -

Jen and Nick just got engaged, literally - a few weeks ago, and decided to celebrate by having an engagement shoot as soon as they could. They didn't want anything too formal, so in true Californian style we headed to the beach for a relaxed but romantic shoot as the sun set...

- SHERMAN OAKS RESIDENCE BY NORTH DESIGN LA -

Take me to a house in the hills and I'll fall in love, it's a given. 
I'm a sucker for these houses, you know the ones - they look small and cute from the outside but then you go inside and a grand staircase leads you down to cavernous rooms and a huge back yard! The work of Werner Mayes of North Design LA here is so elegant, have a nose below...

- CLOUDY SKIES -

It's fair to say cloudy skies are something of a rarity in LA, but lately as we've been creeping into Autumn we've been treated to a few wisps here and there and finally some rain! Hooray! So here are some cloudy treats I snapped on my iPhone this past week or so...
This sunset captured below was INCREDIBLE. It was the night it rained and as the clouds sat thickly over the city the sunset reflected all around and lit up our garden with this eerie orange glow (I suppose it was Halloween after all!)

- A SILVERLAKE KITCHEN BY AMY SKLAR -

With a name like Amy how could this girl be anything other than awesome, right?! Right! Amy plotted the perfect time for me to shoot this beautiful kitchen; late in the morning when the light was making these lovely patterns. It's hard to choose, but I think my favourite part of this room is the wall of pans - decorative and a genius storage idea.
Check out more of Amy's work here.

- ACROSS THE POND -

August was an exciting time for my family, my sister gave birth to a baby boy! It was pretty hard being all the way over here in Cali while that was happening so I jumped on a plane in September and zoomed over to meet my new nephew, Charlie. It was a wonderful trip, and not only did I get to hang out with the new squidge but I also spent some quality time with my sis, visited my parents in their new abode, caught up with lots of friends and took a trip to Brighton (where I was living before I moved to LA). Here are a few pics from my time back home…

- COSTA MESA LIVING by JENIKA KURTZ -

Jenika did an amazing transformation on this living area - you can check out the before photos on Design Sponge here. I love the splashes of yellow and the bright and airy feel!
