Personal blog of a professional photographer, freelance illustrator, and designer, and new mom from Southern California, USA. Also an aspiring ninja with numerous interests: video games, mixed martial arts, bellydance, fitness, cooking, traveling, and Harry Potter. I believe everyday has something beautiful to celebrate, even amidst the banal trappings of daily life. I love my family, I love food, I love life, and I love my dog. This blog has tons of that.
