Charlene and I spent a quiet Saturday morning in a park filled with soft morning light and people taking strolls with their dogs. Afterwards, we arrived at Blue Bottle, a charming location set with a high ceiling and large windows. It was hard to resist their wholesome lattes, paired with their warm waffle served right out of the iron.

Apple rosette tarts, flowers, and delicate props - a wonderful combination. Nathalie Cheng recently procured Jen Huang's Workshop-In-A-Box, and we spent an afternoon baking delicious yet simple apple tarts and learning to stylize our own shoots.
This day was special, because it came with several firsts - my first time doing a photography workshop and capturing my first roll of film. I am thankful that through a dear friend's generosity and support that my eyes were opened to a new avenue of beauty. For years film always had a special place in my heart, and it is undeniable that its way of melding illumination, colors, and depth cannot be fully reproduced by another medium. It is a process that requires patience, yet the results are rewarding! Though I was always on edge on purchasing a camera, I was immediately sold and shortly thereafter researched for one of my own. I am excited for it to come to my doorstep!
Thank you Nathalie Cheng for your friendship, helpful advice, and being my lovely model!
