We arrived in LA and up first it’s time for some prop shopping!
The air was fresh and the vibe was calm after the bustle of the east coast. “California Dreamin” played over and over in our heads like it was the soundtrack of our time there.
We picked up some heart shaped balloons for our shoot, but they never made the catalog.
Production made a sweet strawberry cake for Candy and Meadow’s section of the catalog.
The first day of shooting is always exciting. We got to see Jason Lee Parry in the element as photographer.
We shot at one of the most beautiful beach houses in Malibu – the home of actress Nan Martin, where her husband resides today.
Our surroundings were like staring into an old postcard.
We shot our final hours of the day into the sunset sky.
Looking out into the California sunset made me realize my love for this place was bigger than I could have imagined. Maybe it was the sound of the ocean, maybe it was the laughter in the air, maybe it was the pink sky, but in the moment I realized I could die here.
