I fell in love with California in a whole new way. I have been to beautiful places, but I was in awe that every corner & every glance I took was extremely gorgeous.
I had an assignment with Cafe Crepe and the city & beach was pretty much our studio. We captured so much West coast content for the brand.
I had high expectations when I was told the skate park would blow my mind. I am far from a sk8r girl. To this day, that skate park is my phone wallpaper.
I stayed at the LEVEL FURNISHED LIVING (I woke up every morning thinking I was still dreaming), I felt like I was coming "home", I was able to unwind and this made editing hundreds of pictures so easy.
I stayed in a one bedroom suite that had a stunning view - the kitchen included everything I needed to cook. I was a short walk away from Whole Foods and I bought a few ingredients to host dinner. I found myself using the pool & hot tub more than I regularly do when I stay in hotels. The entire aesthetic portrayed relaxation & comfort.
Butchers Daughter - I was obsessed with the greenery and colours of this cafe. (they also have a NY location)
I obviously suggest Target, there was a mall right by Level. I also shopped on Abbot Kiney Rd. while location scouting and there is everything from small boutiques, well known brands and cute cafe's.
Venice - Incredible skateboarders, Artists, Music and so much culture.
I left this city with multiple amazing shots, I felt like I was across the world but I was only a short flight away from home. I find so much joy in discovering new places. If you are looking for cheap flights - check out the Hopper app or Allegiant air.
