I decided to organize a last minute shoot last weekend. I am just glad I did because 1. the weather was perfect (sunny but with some clouds, minimal winds), 2. worked with an amazing model, makeup/hair, and styling team, and 3. doesn’t the model Sarah

This was the third look that I shot with Monica (JE Model Management) after the graphic tanks looks. We shot at the Sunnyside Conservatory in Glen Park district, which we had all to ourselves. Which was very odd for a Sunday. Nevertheless, it made for great pics!

My first trip to Manhattan Beach was super special because of these two lovely ladies. I’ll always remember the fun moments we had shooting along the residential areas and beach boardwalk. These photos are the second looks we did right after we had brunch. The weather became a lot gloomier, and towards the end, it started to rain. But we managed to snap lots of amazing shots (and some fun Instagram videos)

Streetstyle: Outside Lands Music Festival

Streetstyle: Outside Lands Music Festival

Someone mentioned to me that this entire music festival was also a fashion show in itself. I couldn’t agree more. Lots of people showed off their full festival spirit and their trendy side. Although the weather was nothing compared to the Coachella hotness, it was
