Long overdue post on my photoshoot with Jewel Pi! These sets feature Jewel in three different Charlotte Russe dresses. I totally had a great time shooting this one, esp since we were lucky with the weather in SF! We also got to explore my neighborhood

This is the second shoot I did with Sarah Simmons, one of the fresh faces of JE Model Management. She has one of the most amazing looks I’ve seen (hint: somewhat of a Miranda Kerr look-a-like?). The best part of this shoot was having a

Not everyone can rock plaid and midi skirts. But when I saw Aimee Santos show up to our photoshoot in a plaid midi skirt paired with a leather jacket, I was mesmerized! She totally looks amazing in these shots. I love her personal style! I highly recommend following her blog: swellmayde.com.

Melanee and I did seven (or was it eight?) looks during my visit to Manhattan Beach. This was one of my favorite looks especially because Melanee brought her A game in this one. I love her styling for this set, and even more so with

Falling behind on blog updates, but here is one of my favorite sets from my shoot with Elizabeth Keene! She’s such a stunning blogger to shoot, and it was great to capture some amazing shots of her in Manhattan Beach. I urge you to check

Once upon a time, a photographer named Ryan met two awesome bloggers named Elizabeth Keene and Melanee Shale in Manhattan Beach. They had an amazing time taking pictures, eating crepes, and just having a blast with each other. But then Ryan had to go back to San Francisco for work and everyone was sad. Three months later, Ryan came back to visit Elizabeth and Melanee in Manhattan Beach, just where they all first met. And everyone lived happily ever after… (sort of. But we all had an amazing time again!).

Just two months ago, I crossed paths with Miss Aimee Santos at the very front steps of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week auditorium. I can recall it vividly: I was taking photographs of Julie of Sincerely Jules when Jenny Ong of Neon Blush walks out of
