if you haven’t heard of motopony, go check them out. NOW! they are an amazing group out of seattle who graced los angeles with two free shows yesterday at origami vinyl in echo park and one colorado in pasadena. robin pecknold, of fleet foxes, wrote “music is a kind of replacement for the natural world. that, before civilization or whatever, the world must have seemed a place of such immense wonder and confusion, so terrifying in a way, unthinkably massive and majestic.

happy to share with you some photos from a shoot a couple weeks ago featuring spirit hoods! This was a really fun shoot to do, I’m pretty sure we were laughing and goofing around most of the time which gave the photos such great energy and just shows how you feel when you put one of these furry hoods on. If you want to purchase a hood go here and if you want to buy a hood that will help save an animal (DO IT!) go here to support Pro Blue. lastly, if you want to join a tribe of fellow spirit hood lovers who want to remind everyone how amazing life is join Yay Life Tribe. enjoy the photos!
I got blessed with a press pass for Lightning in a Bottle this past Memorial Day weekend and all I can say is “sensory overload!” For a photographer, it was a visual dream between the costumes, festival acts, the musical performances and lighting.
