Oh Hey It’s @heyitsannabanana Part Four!

I realized I haven’t seen Anna since mid-December. Three months later, we’re back at the same spot that we last had our session (See Part Three), but only with warmer weather. We originally planned on shooting at the Ferry Building/Pier One area, but plans fell

Here’s the second look that Elaine (Romantic Fawn) and I did at LACMA early this March. She is way too adorable for words. I hope you enjoyed this series! Check out her blog for more details of her outfit from Charlotte Russe! P.S. Did you 

Introducing Ami Haruna

Introducing Ami Haruna

I’ve actually been a fan of Tokyo model Ami Haruna several years back when I first started photography. Since then, I’ve just been following her modeling work on Facebook and Instagram. One day (which was sometime in late Feb), I decided to message her to see if she would be interested in doing a shoot. Why not, right? She said yes and the rest was history! We met up at her apartment in LA and did four looks around her neighborhood. I also got to meet her Pomeranian doggy – Coconut! It was so fun shooting with Ami. She really nailed down the Girl Next Door look which I was going for in these spring dresses from Charlotte Russe. Hope you enjoyed the shots!

For this series, when I saw Kathleen’s outfit, I immediately took Kathleen Carla to my favorite wall in San Francisco (I know it sounds weird saying that. But do YOU have a favorite wall? Or am I just weird?). This wall is magical and gives

This is one of my favorite sets with Bryn Newman of Stone Fox Style that we shot at Yerba Buena Gardens. It was definitely spring dress weather that day and Bryn just knew how to rock the dress! See more details of her outfit on 

Introducing The Ruby Element

Introducing The Ruby Element

I first heard of Ruby (The Ruby Element) late last year when she was co-hosting the M Dot Design Studio event at the W Hotel with Melanee Shale and Joann Doan. It was a bummer I couldn’t head down to LA for it, but since then I’ve always admired her style and her amazing modeling. We finally got a chance to meet last weekend in none other than Diamond Bar! It was such a coincidence that we are both from the same hometown, and timing & convenience couldn’t have been better because I had a flight to catch and she had to be in K-Town right after our meet up. We first met up at our local Starbucks (in the words of Ruby: “the only cool place to be in Diamond Bar”. I disagree. I think it’s Target. LOL). Then we squeezed in a three-looks photo shoot at our favorite (mine, not hers) hometown childhood destination – the old Diamond Bar Public Library. We found our “magical wall” that just did it for us. It was so fun working with Ruby and I can’t wait to shoot with her again. This time we vowed to shoot a full day, and maybe even try to set a record for number of looks shot in one day together. Stay tuned for more! Hope you enjoyed the shots!

Check out her blog for more details of her outfit: The Ruby Element – Monochrome.

Introducing Elaine of Romantic Fawn

Introducing Elaine of Romantic Fawn

This past weekend, I went to Southern California to surprise my sister and mom (they haven’t seen me since Christmas), and also to shoot some of my favorite bloggers in LA. I was particularly excited about shooting with Elaine of Romantic Fawn, especially since I’m
