Mark made me a peanut butter sandwich so I took some photos of him and his friends playing basketball. They all played very well, but Isa and Kaleb won and then Brandon reminded me that I owe him lumpia from four years ago.
Preview of Melissa’s senior portraits! It was a solid Sunday afternoon giving my brother and his friends a tour of the campus. I feel like I get so lucky getting to photograph just the sweetest seniors, especially Melissa with her lovely smile!

I missed my train to San Francisco and was very upset, but my best friend drove me all the way there and did his homework while he waited and I will never be able to get over how selfless he is.
Even if I was terribly late, it was such a pleasure to meet some talented photographers and hang out at Sutro Baths. They were all so down-to-earth and it was awesome seeing how others work!

Brother and Banksy in San Francisco
My brother might be my favorite person on this earth.

I made some teriyaki on a Friday night and we watched Requiem for a Dream before driving through the farms of Davis to find constellations. Mark elaborated more on lightyears and how he doesn’t believe in karma.
My best friend is a boy who worries far too much for being as smart as he is. He is a selfless young man and an attentive observer. There are several people I can truly be myself around and I have a good feeling that Mark will be in my life for a long time. And I think he might be able to say the same for me because I’m a great laundry helper.
We had our little meet up at Land’s End / Sutro Baths this weekend in San Francisco and these are some of the photos. I loved meeting all of these ladies and exploring with them.
Here’s a list of the gals who attended

Engagement photos of Jag & Kiran.
Senior portraits of Matt, class of 2014
Matt and my brother have been close friends since 4th grade and he’s always been such a hard-working boy. Most people I photograph usually have a tough time trying to keep a serious face for a couple seconds, but this kid is so pro at it. But I got a couple good giggle photos while talking about how my mom tried to teach their 4th grade class about division (Matt said he didn’t really understand…that’s okay, Ma) and how one of their friends used his sister’s facial lotion for hair gel.

This is one of my roommates, Nivan. She gets excited about a lot of things and her energy is so contagious. She sometimes likes to go on late night drives to the car wash or Dutch Bros. I’ve been living with her for a little over a month and I’ve learned a bit about Palestine, believing in soul mates, and chasing after her barefoot in the wet grass at 1AM.
Working with Nesrine Faith is way too much fun. She is this brilliant artist and I’m so excited for her new EP. Get pumped, friends, she is excellence.

My neighbors have beautiful children and I get to hang out with them every once in a while. This boy is such a joy to babysit because he is so animated and expresses every single emotion he feels at any moment.
My mom gave him Froot Loops for the first time. He enjoys them a lot.

The downstairs neighbors’ back porch is now clean because Jose is such a good man. I’m glad that he and Becky are married. Moris and Stephen were patient as well. Brit has got the largest heart and Becky held me for a long time. Nivan and Dunia make me laugh and we live in a nice apartment.
Jose took some photos because he did not sleep a wink.
