Ariana Lauren | Love Me Like You Do

Ariana Lauren and I shot again this past weekend. We enjoyed another beautiful 70 degree weather in San Francisco while the East Coast braced for a snow storm. We wandered around SoMA looking for cool spots that would matched her outfit, which wasn’t too hard to find except for the insane construction that would give birth to the future high-rise luxury condos and apartments in this district. Check out her blog post for more details of her outfit: Leather & Studs.

And by the way, Ariana and I are co-hosting at event for M Dot Design next Thursday at the W Hotel! If you are in San Francisco, please come and say hello! We would all love to meet you! RSVP and more details here: Retail Therapy.

Louise Roe | Pencil Me In

Now that I think about it, I haven’t seen or held a pencil in years! This is a look that I shot with Louise Roe in LA’s Arts District. It was also her first time shooting there, which was a good break for her from shooting at her normal spots in West Hollywood. I also have much respect and admiration for all the artwork around this area, I’ve even followed a couple of them on Instagram (Kim West is my fave!). Check out Louise’s blog post for more details of her outfit: My All-Weather Must-Have: The Pencil Skirt.

Julia Cheng | Make It Happen

Julia Cheng of LifesJules and I missed each other several times during my LA visits, mainly because it was the holidays and she was back in Taiwan. Luckily she was able to make a trip to San Francisco this past weekend, and we managed to meet up in downtown for a three look session. It was nice to catch up with her again and also get some quality shooting time. Check out her blog post for more details of her outfit: Dark Paradise.

Elizabeth Keene | Go Classic

During the first weekend of 2015, I had a chance to regroup with my dear friend Elizabeth Keene in Manhattan Beach. We had a lovely brunch at Kettle and then wandered around in one of my favorite neighborhoods in LA. I don’t remember how many times I’ve shot in Manhattan Beach, but it always involved shooting with Elizabeth and Melanee. We came across this breathtaking mansion in front of the beach. We were pretty sure it was someone else’s vacation home since it was empty. Hope you enjoyed the shots, she’s always quite photogenic. Check out her blog post for more details of her outfit: A Keene Sense of Style: Classic Combinations.

Louise Roe | Shooting Star

This is the last of three looks from a special collaboration between celebrity fashion blogger/tv personality/model Louise Roe and Elodie K in Los Angeles. I was grateful for Michelle of M Dot Design organizing this amazing shoot, along with an awesome creative team consisting of makeup artist Suzie K and hairstylist Kelsey Deuel. This is my favorite look of the three that we did (look 1 and look 2) maybe because I love the simplicity of it. Plus she has a really cool clutch from Urania Gazelli. Oh and did I mention she’ll be a judge at this Sunday’s Miss Universe? Be sure to tune in! Check out her blog post for more details of her outfit: Front Roe: How to Make Accessories the Star of the Show.

Ariana Lauren | Hayes Valley

I just realized that Ariana Lauren and I have been shooting in different neighborhoods almost each time we shot. This time it was at Hayes Valley. We first had brunch with Miss Jyo (Cuppajyo) at Stack’s (one of my favorite brunch destinations), and then wandered around the neighborhood. We were also tempted to get Smitten’s Ice Cream and hot dogs but decided to be good with our diet. Hayes Valley is one of my favorite neighborhoods in San Francisco, be sure to check it out one day if you have not been. More details of her outfit can be found on her blog post: Chunky Sweater.

Ellen V Lora | Dark Matter

EVL (Ellen V Lora for short) always continues to amaze me. I love working with her because she also brings the best out of me as a photographer. This shoot somehow turned into one of the my favorite watch shoots and I almost thought I was doing a watch campaign. But as usual, it’s just Ellen being Ellen, who always brings out her best style game each shoot. We shot this in the LA Arts District right when the sun started saying goodbye. Check out her blog post for more details of her outfit: Oil Slick.

Amy Nguyen | A Touch of Summer

When I told Amy (aka @ammish on Instagram) that I was going to be in Los Angeles for the weekend, she was willing to drive all the way from San Diego just to shoot with me. I was really flattered and also excited to work with her. We had a lot of fun shooting several looks that day on Melrose Place, and kept shooting until daylight started getting scarce. We also tried out Tastes of Melrose nearby that had really good lunch specials which I will for sure visit again. I hope to work with her again the next time I visit Southern California.

Side Note: I requested Amy to sing Taylor Swift’s Blank Space and she did it! Watch the video here.

Louise Roe | Thigh High Boots

Part two of my shoot with fashion blogger/tv personality/model Louise Roe featuring Elodie K features these killer thigh high boots. Shooting with Louise was a breeze since she’s an amazing model already. Plus she rocks almost any outfit she styles. We shot this along Melrose Place, which you’ll occasionally run into celebrities and other fashion icons from time to time. Actually, during my first shoot with Ellen, we did spy Louise hanging around the area but at that time we weren’t acquainted yet! Be sure to check out the boutiques and Alfred Coffee if you visit Melrose Place someday! Now go and check out her blog post to find out more about what she’s wearing – Thigh High Boots: How to Wear Them.
