I had the opportunity to shoot some behind the scenes for the Adidas, Away Days film directed by the super talented Matt Irving. Matt had organized a special visitor on set to surprise the boys, and lots of laughs and mischief ensued. Check out Away Days on iTunes!



My husband, Kirk Dianda shot and edited this beautiful piece called “Respect your Roots”. It celebrates 30 years of skateboarding photography through the lens of iconic skate photographer Skin Phillips, with the release of a special edition shoe. Here’s a photo I shot of Skin looking through his incredible archives of slide film after we shot his interview at his home in Southern California.


Earlier this year I had the opportunity to shoot alongside Atiba Jefferson for the “Latch” campaign for a new sunglass from Oakley. The Latch project was formed by a unique collective; Eric Koston, Atiba Jefferson, Sean Malto, and Curren Caples. My images were used to tell the story of Atiba, Sean, and Curren working together, and can be seen in print media, social networks, the Latch website, and posted on personal social networks by Oakley’s athletes. It was incredible to watch someone like Atiba work his magic behind the lens… I’m such a huge fan of his vision and work ethic.

Check out the Latch video created by my handsome husband, Kirk Dianda, and a sneak peak into the commercial shoot in DTLA.



For its closing weekend, May 8-10, Oakley In Residence: Los Angeles celebrates LA WOMAN – a homage to the art of female skateboarding, featuring the stars and scenery of the city where it all began. Curated by photographer Amber B DiAnda, the exhibition is a modern day love letter to the city of angels. Featuring six photographers and one filmmaker, including the likes of Deanna Templeton, Magdalena Wosinska, Molly Steele, Imogen Barron, Andrea DoSouto and Lisa Whitaker. LA WOMAN highlights the exploration of landscapes, liberty, and ladies of the skate scene, reminding us of the co-existence associated with creative expression and our cultural surroundings.

Thank you to all the incredible woman that helped make this exhibition so awesome. I am eternally grateful for all your love and support. xa
