This was the last look from our shoot, and Ellen V Lora and I drove around the Arts District looking for that perfect spot. Of all the places, it ended up being an obscure alleyway with some construction going on. Visit her blog for more details: Pure Evl / Shades of Cool.
Last week I had the chance to visit Las Vegas and attend MAGIC. If you haven’t heard of MAGIC before, it is the world’s largest fashion marketplace (so large that MAGIC has to take up two convention centers)! It was my second time attending it, and I’ve forgotten how overwhelming it can be going through rows and rows of fashion brands all day long. These photos are from the second day at Project and Magic. I had a blast hanging out with my friends Judy Elle and Trisha. I ran into some blogger friends like Lisa Linh, Linh Nguyen, Jill of Little Black Boots, and Lo Caballero.
Last but not least, I met the talented designer behind EIS Los Angeles, Ayumi, and her partner-in-crime Monica. Be sure to check them out!
I was ecstatic to come home to these sweet treats from Macaron Cafe! These were very delicious and I encourage you guys to check them out whenever you’re craving macarons! The flavors were amazing: peanut butter + jelly, chocolate + raspberry, vanilla, dark chocolate, coconut, and raspberry. So good!
I met up with the lovely Lola Fair during her super short visit to San Francisco about a week ago. We managed to catch golden hour at Yerba Buena Gardens. We were lucky that it wasn’t too windy (it was quite perfect actually). She looks so gorgeous in this dress. Find out where it’s from on her blog: Lost in Ruby Slippers.
Christina of TopShelf Style asked me to do a collaboration with her for TopShelf Style. We finally made it happen this past weekend. Our theme was very much inspired by Outside Lands Music Festival. The looks totally embraced the weekend vibe. It was really fun shooting with models Christa and Ellen. Shooting for a fashion boutique/retailer totally reminded me of my days at Charlotte Russe and Betabrand. Hope you enjoyed the shots! Be sure to check out TopShelf Style! Oh and did I mention that we ran into Glee actress Dianna Agron at Tacolicious right after the shoot? See photo at the end of the post!
And look who we ran into! The cheerleader from Glee, Dianna Agron!
First time a blogger has written a poem based on a photoshoot. Check out Eunice’s poem now on her blog: Hugs & Kisses XOXO.
I have to share with you photos from my shoot with Ann McFerran. She’s totally one of my new favorite blogger/models to shoot in LA. She’s also really fun to hang out with. Did I mention she’s an extremely talented artist? Be sure to check out her blog to see both her style and art: The Modern Artista.

You know it’s a good photoshoot when you have way too many good photos and can’t decide which ones to post. And you also know it’s a good photoshoot when you connect so well with your subject. In this case, the subject being Eunice Kim. I shot with her a couple of months ago in SF during the winter. It was nice to be reunited with her in warmer weather. It was nice to shoot again with someone that is so comfortable in front of the camera, and a personal style that I really enjoy shooting as well. I also have yet to visit her place and play with her cats Mr. Loki and Chloe. You’ll definitely see more collaborations with her. Check out her blog post for more details of her outfit: You Can’t Sit With Us. Check out this Fyuse I took of her: Click Here.

The last time I shot with Kier Mellour was in the freezing cold during NYFW in February. It was nice to shoot in warmer weather this time. We’ve been trying to shoot for the longest time and we finally got to it during her short visit to San Francisco a few days ago.Hope you enjoyed the shots! Check out her blog post for more details: Kier Couture | San Fran.
I was enjoying a nice warm summer day in SF and then the fog and cold breeze rolled in. You know what that means: Outside Lands is coming. I’ve been going to OSL for the past three years now, and they all have been historically cold. I actually dislike the cold weather during Outside Lands, since everyone bundles up and it’s difficult to shoot streetstyle that way. Compared to Coachella where everyone shows off their outfit in the desert heat, SF’s weather will make you bundle up in a blanket or heavy jacket, which renders your outfit hidden from the public eye. Regardless the music is always amazing. I sadly won’t be going this year since OSL doesn’t excite me as much as a streetstyle photographer, but I know a lot of my friends will have a blast.
