If you follow me on IG (follow me here) you've been seeing some previews of a new shoot I did with actress and friend Cynthia, also from the bay area. I found this great dress at a vintage store on Melrose (Hutch Vintage) and I had to grab it (the yellow dress). When I buy stuff for shoots I try to make sure it will also fit me so I can wear it at some point and it's not just sitting there in my closet, this one did not fit the bill, but I had to have it. 

I was inspire by some previous photos I saw on Pinterest to do a mixing of patterns with this piece. I went out and found some more pattern pieces that fit the bill and grabbed some fun fabric and bam. 

I was fortunate enough to work with Maria on this shoot who does both hair and make up. I feel like I've been looking for her for over a year now, so thankful to have gotten a message from her. She's super talented, reliable, and has so far said 'yes! let's do it!' to every idea I shoot her way. Keep an eye out for more stuff we've got in the works.

Dead City

As soon as I moved to LA I was fortunate enough to meet some super cool ladies. They asked me to photograph a shoot they've been wanting to do for a long time inspired by Patti Smith. We recently got it published on Fashion Grunge and I'm so excited to share with you the colored version here! Check out the published version @ Fashion Grunge

Here are some images that I did with two amazingly beautiful sisters, Shaylyn & Taryn, in San Francisco. I met Shaylyn about two years ago, when I found out her sister also modeled I told her that whenever her sister was in town I'd love to shoot them. Right before I moved to LA, she hit me up and we all had a magical day on one of the hottest days in San Francisco. Enjoy!

Road Trip Recap

This past summer I was fortunate enough to go on a month long road trip through the US. It has always been a dream of mine to hop in the car and explore and I did just that. My partner and I packed our camping gear in the trunk and our suitcases in the back seat and hit the road. We left Oakland, CA and headed south to Los Angeles. From there we stopped at Joshua Tree, then on to Flagstaff and Sedona in AZ. From there we kept going east through the beautiful colors of Santa Fe, along the vast Texas desert to Austin, to the vibrant musical paradise of New Orleans. Then we went up toward Memphis and back across through Missouri, Kansas, Denver, Arches National Park in Utah, a pit stop in Lake Tahoe and finally ended in Sea Ranch, CA for a family get together. 

It was an amazing trip that I will never forget. I was able to work with many other artist, eat tons of food, get a tattoo, listen to great music, make new friends, and do it all with my best friend. Here are some of my favorite photos from the trip! 

Rainy Days

Loving all the rain we're getting here in the bay area. While driving into the SF over the Bay Bridge there was so much fog, I felt like I was driving in a cloud, it was amazing. That feeling inspired me to contact Devon & plan a spontaneous shoot up in the Berkeley hills. Being up there in the hills, fog, and rain was so peaceful. Here are some of my favorites. 

Gals Day Inn

I'm so excited to finally be able to share this video I worked on with Daniela Osorio and Erica Calderon back in May. I felt so intimidated by all the clips that I had taken that I kept putting it off, but once I started, only a few days ago, it quickly came together. 

This is one of my very first videos. I did a few back in college but none like this so I am very excited about this piece. It's just a short video of Erica and Daniela being cute, wearing amazing clothes, and having a fun mellow day in. Now that I've done this video, and I never thought I'd say this, I only want to do more videos! Here's to a great 2015 of paid gigs and more shoots!

Hope you like it!
