It was my mom's very special 60th birthday weekend and she planned it in Los Angeles, CA.
My family is already familiar with So-Cal, we live in San Diego and have family in Los Angeles. The reason why my mom chose Los Angeles is because she wanted to support a San Diego electric bike tour company that she loves that just opened up a location in Hollywood. They're called LA Fly Rides and I highly recommend to check them out when you are out there!
So my family and I drove 2 hours out to the destined Airbnb apartment in the heart of Downtown LA right next to the Staples Center and a block away from the college I graduated from, Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. It was fun to poke around my old stomping grounds and to give a mini tour of what I knew to my family. As a fashion and portrait photography, I bring my Canon EOS 70D with my Sigma 24-50mm lens wherever I go (no matter how heavy it is) to keep hold of these precious moments with my beautiful mom and siblings.
