Karen Yeung | 90s Baby

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

Bryn Newman and I met up again two weekends ago for a three look session. We first started out with a boho look that we shot around the Embarcadero and Folsom area. She actually styled this crochet top two ways: Taking the Crochet out of Coachella.

I’ve been looking for a muse to rock my world. And I did! Her name is Fiona Leahy and she’s so much fun to work with! We totally work on the same wavelengths – in other words, we clicked right at the moment we met. Her quick trip to SF was way too short – we only had less than an hour to work with (and on crappy weather conditions). But we managed to pull of three looks with amazing results! Here’s the first set that we shot at Yerba Buena Gardens. We love working with each other so much that she’s going to visit me in San Francisco again in just a couple of days! Excited.

P.S. Check out her new blog: Teal Kitty!

Expressions can make or break a photo. I sometimes wonder why some bloggers look too serious in their photographs when they are wearing a fun outfit, or even look bored in an awe-inspiring look. It’s always good for models/bloggers to match their expressions with their outfits.

Karen Yeung (IAMKARENO) was actually the one who introduced me to Sandy. We first met during my second shoot with Karen just a few weekends ago. During her first look, she was a bit nervous, but then she carried on like a pro. It was

This set always makes me smile. Besides the cuteness and playfulness from these photos, it was the memory of having fun with Jessica (Hapatime) during the shoot. We actually took time to relax a bit during the shoot and I had her do goofy stuff such as peel off the flower petals for a “He loves me, He loves me not” video. Did I mention Jessica looks completely adorable in this Trendy Blendy dress!? I hope you enjoyed these shots!

Less than two weeks ago, Karen and I shot together again for the second time. Working with her this time around was a charm – we worked so fluidly and efficiently in front and behind the camera. We did four looks and also filmed for her
