YOUR LA BLISS - May 28th, 2017
Jessica is a British lifestyle photographer based in Los Angeles and contributor to The La Bliss website and blog.
How long have you lived in LA and where exactly? I moved from London to Venice beach 2 years ago.
How does LA influence your work? I love working with natural light when possible, so shooting in Los Angeles using the amazing light here is a dream!
How would you describe your relationship with the city? I find Los Angeles very inspiring. We are surrounded by so much beauty, from the Ocean and mountains to the desert. Its also an exciting place to be right now, the creative communities are thriving as a result of many artists and entrepreneurs migrating here.
What is your favourite neighbourhood and why? Venice beach. When i first visited Los Angeles with my husband we both fell in love with Venice. The ocean, wide sandy beaches, friendly locals and easy going attitude.
What is your best memory in LA so far? I will never forget the first time i walked down Venice pier. It was a beautiful clear January morning and I had an ear to ear smile. Actually it still makes me smile every time! Being on Venice pier watching the waves crash below is hard to beat.
Describe your perfect day in LA (places, activities...)? Well it would have to be a Sunday and i would spend the whole day in Venice. I love to start the day off right with a early yoga class at Yoga Nest followed by a Green Juice -in true LA style! Then i head home and make some lunch for my husband and i, play with the dog in the garden and Skype Family & friends back home in England. In the afternoon our favourite thing to do is walk down to the boardwalk and take in all the activity. I especially love the roller disco! We also have a Sunday evening ritual of watching the sunset south of Venice pier. Its the perfect start to a new week!
