Gotta love that Californian Christmas. New Yorkers can have their winters, I opt for some sunshine and palm trees to keep my holiday spirit alive and growing. Had the opportunity to shoot with @thismintymoment – a good friend of mine, I met via Instagram in Venice Beach this weekend – and I was so in love with this shoot and location. I have always hated the busy nature and dirtiness of Venice, but at 7:00 AM, you feel on top of the world. The sun felt like it just woke up as it got used to heating the warm sands of the beach.
One of the last photos, you’ll see me take a walk in the skate park, which captured the light brilliantly. Overall, I was so inspired and satisfied with this shoot – it truly felt like Christmas came early.
Happy holidays to you and yours!
