This was my first time shooting with Stephanie. We shot this while in Downtown LA. I actually cleaned up some dirt on the concrete via Photoshop! LA isn’t that clean at times. But then again, SF isn’t so clean either. Hope you enjoyed the shots!
This is the third time I’ve shot with Trang (aka @Trangspage), and let’s just say, she’s rose to the top of my list as one of my favorite muses of all time. This girl just knocks down her poses and is very comfortable in front of the camera. She’s also fun to hang around too. This was shot around the beautiful neighborhood of Noe Valley, right after we picked up some Iced Mint Mojitos from Philz Coffee. Hope you enjoyed the shots!
Had a lot of fun when Eunice (aka @MissDanBee) visited me a few weeks ago in San Francisco. This was one of four looks we shot that day around my neighborhood. I helped complete her look with a moto jacket from Charlotte Russe!
This past weekend, I went to check out #BeautyConLA for the first time! I had a blast! But I think I was more excited meeting and shooting with Christine (@kkarmalove) than everything else. She picked me up at my hotel and then we shot around downtown LA. Then we met up with some more blogger friends in K-Town for some amazing Korean BBQ at Road to Seoul. She was definitely fun to shoot with. Stay tuned for more!
It’s been 3 months since I last shot with Ruby of The Ruby Element, but we were finally reunited during her last visit to San Francisco this past weekend. We met up in Japantown on a cold, typical San Francisco “summer” day. I was hesitant about shooting around Japantown at first since I was not familiar with the area. But after catching up with Ruby over a bowl of ramen, we came upon this big blue Victorian near the restaurant. It was such a perfect backdrop for Ruby’s outfit. I’m in love with these shots and I hope you are too!
While exploring the Potrero District, Karen and I came upon this section near a brewery with cool white walls. The best part was a high voltage yellow gate that just paired well with her outfit. We’re both in love with this hidden gem of a district that offers so many amazing spots to shoot. Hope you enjoyed the shots! Check out her YouTube channel for more details: IAMKARENO.
Since my first shoot with Trang (@trangspage), I’ve been itching to work with her again. I finally got a chance to do so a few weekends ago, and with good fortune. We were met with beautiful lighting conditions (despite a bit of a chill, but then that’s San Francisco summer for you). I decided to meet her around the Financial Distrist, an area that I rarely shoot in, so it was actually pretty fun exploring new places. When we came upon 101 California, we were awestruck at the marvel of this plaza (maybe now we know how Lewis & Clark felt when they discovered the Pacific Ocean – kind of). Hope you love the shots! Stay tuned for more looks from our four looks shoot!
It’s been a year in the making, but I finally got to see and shoot with Ria Michelle once again at Miami Fashion Week! We first met at Outside Lands in July 2013, and since then we’ve kept in touch and became good friends! We teamed up together for Miami Swim Week and covered shows and took outfit photos together. I really had an amazing time hanging out with her, she really made my Miami experience a blast! Ria also has killer styles – you’ll be blown away at the other looks we shot together too! We shot this at The Raleigh Hotel (the main venue for MBFW) while waiting for the next show to begin. And yes, it was such a humid day but Ria managed to keep her cool with this outfit.
Hope you enjoyed the shots. Check out her blog post [Cruel Summer] for more details of her outfit!
Here’s another short and sweet photo set I did with Kathleen Carla. She looks so angelic in this white romper! This was taken at Alyssa Nicole’s Fall 2014 Collection fashion event at the rooftop of the FIDM building.
