Small Town of Julian

Out into the countryside of San Diego is a small town called Julian, known for their apples. Apple orchards, apple picking, apple pies! Yum! I ventured out there in December, mainly because I had a client photo engagement session arranged there, but my friend Cara actually knows the bride, so she and I decided to make a little outing out of it before the photo session started. Such a cute and charming used book store! Can you tell what we…

Parabo Press Review

During the holidays, I came across an Instagram sponsored post for a printing company called Parabo Press that offered 25 free 5″x5″ prints + cost of shipping ($8). The advertisement suggested printing photos from Instagram, and it seemed like a good idea to print some of my favorite images from my Instagram feed, so I gave it a whirl and ordered a batch. The ordering process was very simple. As of now, they only take orders through their Android or…

One Infinite Loop

Everyone knows that Silicon Valley is the mecca of tech companies. To name a few – Apple, Google, Facebook, Intel, HP, LinkedIn, Netflix, and the list just keeps going.

And it’s this elusiveness that draws me in and makes me want to visit this special world of nerdiness.…

The year before that, I joined Joseph and his mom for a road trip to Utah where we ultimately stayed in Zion for a few days. This year, it was only me and my beloved fiance spending a couple of nights over Christmas together as we took a car ride to beautiful San Fransokyo…

Looking Back on 2015

It’s crazy how time seems to fly by the older we get. I remember in high school, life seemed to just crawl as I wished for the school year to end. And now, as I sit here as a 25 year old lady, life just passes me by when all I want is for it to slow down immensely. As I reflect back on this past year, I’m actually very surprised at all of the things that happened, especially travel-wise.…

The Grand Rooms Tour of Hearst Castle

When you’re feeling like you want a piece of Europe but you’re stuck in California, or if you just want to see a pimped out house, a visit to Hearst Castle might be the cure for your cravings. Built by the newspaper mogul back in the early 1900s, William Randolf Hearst, this castle is situated on a hill near San Luis Obispo and overlooks the Pacific Ocean in the distance. It took nearly 30 years from 1919 – 1947 for…

Video: New Mexico Highlights

To wrap up the video portion of our trip to New Mexico, I’ve compiled a bunch of video clips and made a highlights video. There is still one more post I need to write about from our trip, which involves aliens (!?) but I was too excited not to show this video to you guys, haha.
