Had a laid-back family session with Sunshine Campbell and her babes Ekoh, Gracie and Zeke a few days ago. Originally from Venice and now living in Oklahoma City, Sunshine is a modern day superwoman as partner/creator of the uniquely fresh home goods/accessories shop called Perch'd, while managing life as a rockstar mother of three and Brand Manager for Dwell.

Shooting this project hit at a perfect time for us. Our days filled with so many to-dos, we've wanted to find ourselves in a lifestyle with more meaningful habits when it comes to eating. Claire Ragozzino came into our lives and shared her thoughtful intentions behind VIDYA. Her plant-based recipes, advice and stories have given us a better vision of how to find clarity, wellness and connection with food. For Claire, we are grateful to have experienced awesome moments of this unique journey with her. A big thanks to all who contributed. Your enthusiasm to join us in making this film come together was significant and has us amped for so much more.

Barre3 evolves the dancer’s workout by combining the grace of the ballet barre with the wisdom of yoga and the strength of Pilates. Andrea is easily one of the most beautifully balanced individuals we know. This short piece is a look into her inspiring life in motion.

Space on her family's pond in OK, good light and two who dig each other. Their life before the big wedding day in October.
Swab Squad is a portable, pop-up marrow drive designed to be easily integrated into events around OK to help spread awareness about the need for marrow donors, dispel myths around the marrow transplant process and to assist the OK Blood Institute in growing the Be The Match marrow registry. It was formed out of Marshall Matlock’s personal experience with Leukemia and his life-saving bone marrow transplant made possible by Be The Match and one selfless donor. Six of ten patients in need of a marrow transplant never find the donor they need; Swab Squad is dedicated to improving that number.
It feels good to book our first commercial project across the country. We've been working in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest this week and already missing this place before we leave.
