Sometimes, capturing a moment in life requires the help of an expert. When there is a special visual story to tell, Carolina Adame is the woman to call. Carolina has a true artist’s eye and a natural ability to calm even the most jittering of subjects (her palo santo spritz and poem reading at the start of a photography session helps too). With this smiling photographer behind the camera, stories and feelings seem to come alive. Quite simply, her work is mesmerizing.
When I see Carolina’s photography, I’m always struck by how she is able to find such beauty in the little quiet moments, in the seconds we want to hold on to forever. I would not be surprised to find Carolina’s work on a gallery wall sometime soon. Her images are just that magical.
Currently, the busy mama of two is working on her first book project and somehow still finds time to document tenderness during individual sessions. If you want to memorialize those lovely but fleeting moments, Carolina is well worth the wait.
Chiqui Social is taking language learning to another level. Created by Lizet Alvarez, Chiqui is an immersion studio that teaches Spanish in a fun and purposeful way. Instructors spread the joy of speaking Spanish to youngsters through a mixture of progressive and traditional teaching methods, with a heavy dose of lightheartedness.
Chiqui isn’t just for kids though. Parents are also welcome at Chiqui. The social hub has several offerings for grownups including workshops, family happy hours and mindful mommy and me classes.
Situated in Culver City, the studio is a calm home-like oasis, beautifully appointed with artisanal wares. Outfitted with a sunny cheerful kitchen, an outdoor space and a thoughtfully curated store; there is a little something for everyone at Chiqui.
If you want your children to learn Spanish and are looking for an inviting community, Chiqui is the place!
When I grow up, I want to be like Eileen Harris Norton. The activist art collector has sparked conversations about race and gender in the contemporary art world for the past thirty years and hasn’t stopped. Recently, I came across these photos of Norton’s home and my crush went up a notch (who knew it was possible?). I can’t stop daydreaming about the way Norton lives with her art. Talk about home goals!
