It’s been awhile since my last update, but things have been hectic ever since I took off for Miami Swim Week last weekend. It’s my first fashion week in Miami, and I must say, I had such a blast! Definitely one of the most memorable times I’ve ever had! I made lots of new friends and most importantly, I spent some quality time with my fav Miami blogger / bae Ria Michelle. We’ve been planning to meet up ever since she visited San Francisco last July for Outside Lands, and it was finally time we got to hang out and shoot! I was also joined by my dear friend Judy who flew all the way from LA and planned this trip with me too. I’ll be posting more later on, but thought I’d share a couple of shots from the early part of my trip! First show I got to see was Poko Pano!
Throughout the shoot, I thought Karen pretty much floated in her outfit. Hence the title “Float” – just like her tattoo! It’s been three weeks since we last shot together, I miss shooting with her! But great news, I’ll be doing a shoot with her two weekends from now! Enjoy these shots! This set is one of my favorites with her! Check out her Youtube video for more details!
Here’s a set I haven’t published yet that I shot of blogger babe Elaine Jung during my visit in LA. This one is totally summer in your face! I wish we could have shot this in Miami, but Beverly Hills wasn’t a bad choice at all. Hope you enjoyed the shots! Don’t forget to visit her blog post for more details of her outfit: Beverly Boulevard.
Karen aka IAMKARENO and I shot a series of monochromatic looks a couple of weeks ago. This was the all black look that she styled. We found a pretty cool section in Potrero District consisting of burgundy walls that matched well with her outfit. It was a short and sweet set since we were trying to catch the daylight before sunset. Hope you enjoyed the shots! Check out her YouTube video from this shoot: Monochromatic Summer Dresses Lookbook.
This was the second look that Jules and I did during her visit to San Francisco. Yerba Buena Gardens during the golden hour was the perfect setting for this Charlotte Russe floral skater dress that she wore for the shoot. Did I mention we were lucky that the weather was perfect? Because recently the weather in San Francisco has turned to winter wonderland (okay not really, but it’s in the late-50s/early-60s). Sorry for the rant, but now all my other bloggers are freezing during my recent shoots. I’m also itching to go back to LA so I can regroup with Jules for another round of shoots! She’s one of my new favorite bloggers to shoot! Hope you enjoyed the shots! Check out her blog post for more details: [Pink Coral].
Joanne Phua rocked my world this past weekend. Coming all the way from Sydney, Australia, we finally got to meet after months of being Instagram friends and talking about her California trip! She’s one of the most fun blogger I’ve shot with lately, and so full of energy and charm. I love her style as well and how comfortable she is being herself. We shot around downtown San Francisco (you might recognize a couple of these buildings if you’ve been around downtown SF a lot!). My favorite part about shooting with Joanne? She didn’t need direction from me. She totally just owned the shoot. Oh and she likes to eat a lot, so it was fun taking her around the City and eating sweets and other treats.
Check out her blog for more details of her outfit: [San Francisco].
Even though Fiona and I were chasing down what little daylight was left, we managed to snap a couple of good shots around Mission Street and 3rd Street. I always love giving that downtown feel to my shots, and this section of the city gives just that (without the tourists too!). Don’t forget to check out Fiona’s blog: Teal Kitty! Can’t wait to shoot again with this hapa beauty this week!
I was lucky to shoot with Jules of LifesJules.com while she was visiting San Francisco two weeks ago. She has amazing versatile style and worked very well with me during the shoot. I first discovered her on the Victoria’s Secret Pink Instagram page a couple of months ago, and since then fell in love with her style! We did a three look session all around downtown San Francisco. Be sure to check out her blog for more details of her outfit: [Blue Bay].
I first met Judy Elle during her visit to San Francisco two weekends ago. An LA native, we talked about all the places in LA that I need to see the next time I’m back down there (most particularly burger places). With all the talk about food, I decided to take her to La Boulange for the first time and made her try their macarons. I also found out that she’s allergic to pistachios. She was really fun to hang out with and doing the shoot was a pleasure. Stay tuned for two more looks from our session!

Ever since I started shooting with Karen, I’ve never seen her wear anything modern. I asked her if she’s ever going to wear anything from this time period, and she just laughed. I don’t mind if she does 60s, 90s, and anything that isn’t 2014 because I know she looks amazing in whatever looks she styles for herself. This was a really fun set to shoot which was right behind the SF Chronicle Building with a cool end-of-the-tunnel lighting. We were also lucky there weren’t that many crazy people that interrupted our shoot, especially in that region. Karen definitely gets my vote on being the ultimate 90s baby.
