Wild Child rocked the night into a blissful state of all the feels. Not only am I a huge fan of them, but there was a room full of many more. I have Wild Child a handful of times in Seattle, Austin, Texas, and even won tickets to their show in San Francisco. I have been listening to them from the beginning. Once when I thought about getting a tattoo, and I briefly thought of getting the Wild Child logo permanently attached to my body. (I'm still tattoo'less though)

I knew the room was full of fans when I was up front taking photos I could hear harmonious waves of the audience singing towards the stage. It was the first show I have heard that many people sing along to all their songs, from their first newest album, Expectations, to their very first, Pillow Talk. 

"Wild Child won't settle. For seven years now the Austin-based ensemble has carried its infectious blend of indie-pop and infectious melodies across the international music scene, charting viral hits and wrapping their arms around a diverse and dedicated fan base. But earlier this year when the band set out to make their fourth studio album, they found they had their hands full: After half a decade of maturation, the group had grown beyond its traditional writing and recording process."

The moment this band got on stage it was pure fun and joy! From running around a keyboard while singing into a rotating mic, to jumping on a small wooden briefcase on stage and using it as another platform. At one point Stelth Ulvang invited someone from the audience to come up on the random. "I need someone who can really play though, more than just a few chords". a guy right behind gets noticed at as he says "I can do it. I am a jazz musician, I got this!" He is invited to hop on stage, and once he does he gets so down with it! Not only is the audience in shock and feeling giddy, but the band is impressed as well.


|| A Bailey Wedding ||

11-11-2017

The Baileys got married inside of the most beautiful venues in all of the world, but specifically in Oakland, California. The 16th St Station has so much character, from the beautiful architecture in the main hall, to the graffiti walls around the backside.

This venue has been in top movies and music videos and has been a place to throw special Burning Man events and various parties, but furthermore - to host the place where The Baileys could show devotion to each other in front of their loved ones. 

The groom put it perfectly on why they choose this spot - "The reason why we picked this building was because we both are kinda are diamonds in the rough, and the graffiti on the building is the like experiences we've had, whether good or bad, we have to take a step back at look at it. The room is beautiful because of the graffiti and because of the cracks, that goes for how we are as well."

Also, I am going to nominate the Baileys for holding down the bad ass card. They had one of Oaklands finest rappers perform as a special guest at their wedding. Too Short did not disappoint anyone and neither did the Baileys.

Lay It Down - Lily Fangz

Lily Fangz brought all the feels to the festival grounds at the sacred Unify Festival in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She pulled out her original "Lay It Down", a song inspired by feeling the pains of addiction through a loved one. It's emotional, its real and raw. It grasped me like lungs needing fresh air.

I connected to this song so much because I have close friends, and even a sister who are going through a mad addiction right now. It's hard and heavy, its tough to get out of without getting hurt yourself. This song helped me heal in the processing of it all. The way she can turn pain into poetry is marveling and so soul spoken.

|| Burning Man 2016 ||

DISCLOSURE || CONFESSION :

This is not going to be a blog post about how Burning Man changed my life in the most uplifting spiritual way. Simply because if you know someone who went, you most likely have already heard about the magic that surrounds the Desert in Black Rock City. It's there, and you will have to find it on your own. This is from my experience alone.

The place where all festival goers have told me (many of times) to go. A place that would changed me once I arrived. Burning Man. I finally have popped my cherry to one of the most world famous festivals on this planet. This was an exciting thing to check off of the bucket list.

These last few years as a festival photographer I have found it to be rewarding to capture the builds and hard work of a beautiful event going up in its glory. With the builders who work together with the ability to intertwine a creative passion into art piece. With the different aspects to soon to be appreciated by many who come to get away, who come to be themselves and to enjoy the art that has been build up around them. Its a sight to see and a gratuitous action to witness.

A literal city was being built in front of me, which was mind blowing. Then I realized for a week this was not going to stop. As soon as something went up one day, it felt like it was being burned down the next. The FEAR OF MISSING OUT haunted me, knowing that things were constantly being changed, and I wasn't going to be able to see and capture everything in its glory.

At Burning Man, my mind at times felt like its was on a long roller coaster ride, where one cannot just get off when ever it wanted. It kept running and running and running. Although, then a realization comes through, this is BURNING MAN> a place where radical self reliance is a huge thing. Taking care of yourself, in the desert, is a huge thing!

Everyone had a piece of them to share. If that meant by gifting homemade pieces in costume form, or to be a part of a team; by building an art installation or helping out with camp set up and tear down. Everyone had something to bring to the table.

Burning man gave me lessons. These lessons are the ones I am still trying to grasp onto. Lessons I will need to keep to myself for awhile, so I can understand them over time. They are right to say experience Burning Man. It's something that cannot be totally explained, but better off expressed.
