One of my favorite ways to spend some down time is losing myself in the world of photographers. From their incredible Instagram feeds to their blogs full of behind-the-scenes shoot tips, I love peeking into the lives of the people who create the images we all love so much. One of my favorite photographers is , who recently moved from Portland, Oregon to Santa Barbara, CA. Her days are filled with sunlight, beautiful food and photoshoots that I would love to see in person. Today Leela is sharing her 10 Favorite Things with us, from her trusty Linus bike to her morning bath and daily walks. I hope you’ll enjoy her favorites! Thanks, Leela! xo, grace

2. Dave’s succulent garden — My husband’s little potted plant zone outside of our cottage is going crazy right now, and he made it all from neighborhood clippings (don’t tell the neighbors), every time I go in and out of our house, I smile at this sweetness.
6. Morning commute – since moving to Santa Barbara from rainy Portland, I can’t get enough of my bike riding through this ridiculous California sunshine landscape — this is the view from 1/2 way to the studio, it’s insane!!
7. Making pictures of pretty things – I am so happy to have made a career out of following my dreams. I’ve been playing with little saucers, picking flowers from the garden, baking cookies and arranging tea parties since I was a kid . . . this is a good day at work!
