Target by myan soffia

Target licensed my Joshua Tree image, No. 189 for the month of April. We checked 4 Target stores near us: Glendale, Eagle Rock, 2 in Pasadena and couldn't find it. My sweetheart friend checked Alhambra, nope not there.  My sweet cousin here looked near his place and my sweet cousin in San Jose looked near her as well. Nada! They couldn't find it. But my wonderful friends and family back east found it in their Target stores! I was so thrilled to see it! 

And then amazingly enough, on one of the very last days it was to be displayed we took a family beach day. I had forgotten to bring our sunscreen so my husband stopped at the Target in West Hollywood. I had long given up on finding it. As soon as I walked in I just happened to glance to the right and there it was! Couldn't believe it! Thank goodness I forgot our sunscreen! What a treat to finally have seen it in person! :)

AMLI Lex on Orange artwork by myan soffia

Installation has begun! Lex on Orange luxury apartments in Glendale has a bunch of my prints framed in the hallways of the building. I love how they framed them. And I am so impressed with the designers and the building itself. They thought about every detail! From the Nest heating and cooling to the Starbucks machine coffee area!

These apartments are really beautiful! My husband and I were ready to move in ourselves! The outdoor cabana area was like a resort, complete with TV's in the cabanas! I would never get any work done if I lived there though! I would be outside relaxing with my baby boy all day! :)















New work: Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, a sky ride, a lake and a valley... by myan soffia

Like everyone else, life has been crazy busy. Trying to balance motherhood and work has been a challenge that I happily embrace. I absolutely LOVE my baby and I absolutely LOVE photography. We had a few mini trips this year and when I get back from a road trip I am like a kid at Christmas, oh so eager to check out my shots and begin editing.
But then my son brings me back to reality, reminds me he is my new boss and I am lucky if I even remember where I put my camera much less get to upload my new images! He wins every time! Who can resist such a handsome sweet man that wants your complete devotion, every day, all day long? :)

I still have tons of shots from our Big Sur trip in October that are not finished. And now added to my growing list are shots from recent trips to Big Bear, Ojai, San Diego and San Francisco. They are teasing me every time I power up my hard drive! However during baby naps these are the ones that jumped out at me the most. So... here are my first rounds and hopefully I will have more completed soon. I have accepted that I probably won't be able to finish the rest until he begins elementary school! :)
