Hello there! I'm Raya Carlisle - a wedding/lifestyle portrait photographer by day & blogger by night (literally, as I am typing this it is 12:30am). My blog thepaperpony is where I post all my creative endeavors, from photography to sewing projects to home design. One thing I love most about blogs is that it's like having your very own magazine & you are the Editor-in-Chief. Today & next Monday my article for sfgirlbybay is a travel piece on my little city-by-the-sea, Ventura California. This was a great excuse for me to spend the day downtown with my 8 mo. old baby boy introducing him to my favorite shops & eateries & taking photos along the way.
First Stop: Breakfast at Savory • 419 E Main St
Breakfast is my favorite meal & this is my favorite place to eat it in Ventura! I also love to buy bread there because they wrap it up in a gift bag with tissue paper & everything - it's the little things : )
lots of warm light & hearts on the dressing room ceiling. Love!
I hope you'll come back next Monday for the second half of my tour of downtown Ventura. A sneak peek...Italian food & quirky antiques. See you next week!
