Photo session with Oriah.
I am incredibly honored to have helped with Alicia Blue’s album artwork. Thank you Alicia for always believing in me. Her album is out on all your favorite music platforms.

At the studio with Alicia Blue & Jordan Ruiz. They are cooking up some magic for the next album, with help from the amazing Jason Goldstein and Ben Greenberg.
I had a session with the gorgeous & incredible Oriah at the beautiful Malibu State Creek Park. Funny back story, it took me hours to remove these little wheat and plants spikes that attached themselves to my shoes and clothing. Still finding them today. Mother Nature is amazing.
It’s always good to escape for a little while. Especially with Rachel Oto.
Spontaneous trip to check out the Anza Barrego bloom this spring with Rachel Oto.
Oriah & Tim Webb in the studio.
Session with Oriah and Tim Webb in the early AM. The sunrise was absolutely stunning.
Walking through the Malibu fields with musician/singer-songwriter Jess Jones for her photo session. Not too long ago this place was burned. Goes to show that Mother Nature always wins.
Had the opportunity to reconnect with Lion's Mouth just recently. I met these two awesome women when I first started venturing into the music photography world. And after what seemed like forever, it was nice to see what they've been up and what they have in store very soon!
Texas was a dream. Take away the mosquitoes and humidity, you've got beauty and simplicity. Time away from the busy city to reflect. Exciting things on the horizon.

I spend a little more than a week in January 2019 on tour with Hopi Blues Band, Mojo Morganfield (Youngest Son of Muddy Waters) and my good friend Rachel Oto. Our last stop of the tour took us to Red Bluff for two days. Rachel and I decided to walk around Red Bluff on an early afternoon for a small photo session before the big show. Good times!
It’s always a pleasure working with Aelish. For our second session, we decided to walk around Old Town Pasadena. I had an hour to get the photos needed before the rain caught up to us!
Working with these guys is always such a treat. This phenomenal local LA band are one of the best I’ve heard. I met Jen and Henry at a Commune event at Stories in Echo Park. We just started talking and they mentioned that they were in a band. Later, I thought I’d check them out and I was blown away. They reached out to me for promo photos and it’s been fantastic ever since. Definitely check them out! allthingsaloud.com
Spend a late afternoon deep in the canyons with Rachel Oto. We hiked two miles to this abandoned location and we managed to arrive just before we ran out of light. This was a fun adventure and as always glad to work with my good friend and amazing musician.
Alicia Blue took me to this beautiful location in Malibu for my 27th birthday. The whole entire day was lovely and I couldn’t leave without having a mini photoshoot.
Recently, California had one of the worst fires in our history. These fires destroyed homes along the San Fernando Valley as well as the Malibu Canyons.
It’s heartbreaking to see such a beautiful places being consumed by flames. It may take a while but nature will restore itself and those affected by these fires will come back from this stronger than ever. Thank you to our brave firefighters and all those who are helping the community and saving lives.
Aelish was formed by two sisters, Synden and Rowan Healy, who have been writing and performing original music together since they were kids. In early adolescence, they performed as an acoustic folk duo all around the LA area, and even back home in their native Portland, Oregon. A few years later, their sights were set on forming a four piece rock band; the discovery of Rock ’n’ Roll itself was only natural given their steady diet of blues and folk in their upbringing.
We are both stronger than we look. We can look past the obstacles and keep going. We are both finding La Loba within us. We don’t stop. We keep going.
To my hermana loba Alicia Blue.

Phoebe Silva has a beautiful and powerful soul. Not too long ago, she volunteered to participate in a very vulnerable project of mine, which is where I officially met and got to know her. We took a hike up the Santa Ynez Canyons and stopped at the Topanga State Beach. It amazes me how open most of the musicians/models I work with are comfortable with nature. It makes the experience all the more magical. Thank you Phoebe for such a wonderful experience with you.
Rachel Oto is a singer-songwriter whose Saloon Rock style defiantly toes the line between sweet sensuality and determined ferocity.
I met Rachel primarily as a designer only to find out her talent in music and many other things. The moment I saw her designs, I wanted to work with her. We have collaborated on multiple projects, including a photo session for her music career. She also gave me the opportunity to photograph her LionHeart merchandise.
Our families have all come to America for a better life. Some have come to get away from terrorism. Others from domestic violence situations. The point is we are ALL immigrants here. Those of us born here are extremely lucky. Our families made the big move, started over, and built a life for us here. So that we can pursue our dreams here. I feel that we owe it to those families now who strive for the same opportunities. To have the same freedom we have. Never forget where we truly come from.

Take off the mask and just be true. All you need is you. You are free.
To the truest, Alicia Blue
Kimber Springs is an amazing musician and up and coming artist. It was a pleasure to be able to work with her and capture her personality on camera.
Bedlam Lullaby is an all woman A cappella group. Samantha Parks, Cameo Adele and Denicar Bergancia are three of the most empowering women I’ve had the privilege to work with.
Alicia Blue photographed at a couple of beautiful apartments lended by our friends, with gorgeous natural lighting.
Special thanks to Melissa Cripe and Ligia Gonzalez.
The most wonderful folk duo of amazing musicians I’ve met and worked with. Mister Mudd and Jenny Olivia both are truly The Perfect Pear.
Spent a late afternoon at Descanso Gardens in La Cañada Flintridge, CA. A gem of the San Fernando Valley.
Alicia Blue and I created some studio magic for her single release of Blue.
