The Face Behind The Lens
HI, I'M LISA
and I'm basically in love with love. And food. And making people smile. But mostly food.
I was raised in the sunny hills of San Diego and recently relocated back to Southern California (South Inland Empire - Murrieta/Temecula).
I have two amazing children, three cats, and a sexy AF husband who supports me through it all. Follower of Christ. Accepting of all.
my favorite feelings: salty air breezing in from the coast, sunshine on my skin, being enthralled by a good book, when music enters your soul and forces you to dance, laughing so hard you cry, the awe of experiencing a new place, little hands holding mine, slobbery kisses before school, kittens purring on my lap.
I am all about people and people watching. I'm basically a professional people watcher. I'm 100% invested in those beautiful candid moments that happen during life.
I can genuinely say that documenting love stories is something that brings me immense joy and purpose.
Romance movies + books make my heart beat quickly and make me all giddy. I still get butterflies when I look at my husband. I'm a softie!
Traveling has my heart
I absolutely love to travel and will say yes to any adventure
some of my favorite places I've explored:
Germany, France, Greece, Italy, Cancun, Hawaii, Costa Rica, The Caribbean.
future places I want to explore: Japan, Turkey, Jordan, Indonesia, New Zealand, Peru, Morocco,. + literally anywhere.
food + history are a perfect pairing
More about me
mom + wife
I've lived my whole adult life as a mom + wife. it's been quite the adventure. my husband and I met through our friends. little did we know that one snowball to the face would start our lives together. he's constantly making me laugh and doesn't steal the blankets (freaking score). my little humans are what keep me going. they're my best friends and constantly keep me on my toes. I love being a girl mom and there's nothing better than hugs from my littles. we love singing + dancing in the kitchen, jumping on the trampoline, swimming, running around in the rain, playing video games, hiking, and going on road trips!
my favorite things
my cats AKA the breakfast club:
Pancake and Bacon! Pancake is white, with little spots of orange and brown, she's very smart and loves to torment me. Bacon is a tortoise and has had a broken tail since birth so she's extra goofy and jumps like a deer.
movies + shows + games: About Time, Pirates of the Caribbean, Harry Potter (obviously), Howls Moving Castle, Avatar the last Airbender, Game of Thrones, The Witcher, Any and All Romcoms, Mean Girls (it's a classic okay), Moulin Rouge, and anything Sci-Fi/Fantasy. Apex with my husband, the legend of Zelda.
music: I'm constantly listening to music and dancing around my house! It plays a huge role in my life.
food: chicken tikka masala gives me life (yes I'm a white girl). I also love me some fancy tacos. and baked feta, I'm obsessed with it. I was raised vegetarian and don't eat any red meat!
I love our planet
I'm kind of a big fan of our big beautiful earth. I'm always trying to be conscious when it comes to location scouting, leaving no trace, using less waste, and continuously trying to improve.
being outside brings a kind of peace you can't find anywhere else. some of my favorite feels of the outdoors: the smell of wet soil, the energy right before a storm, the birds singing in the early morning, waves crashing, and the small feeling you get when stargazing.
