Here’s a short and sweet outfit shoot that I did with Miami fashion blogger Nicholl Vincent┬áduring Miami Swim Week. This was at the SLS Hotel in the midst of one of the most humid days that weekend. Check out her blog post for more details

I’ve been dying to do a swimwear shoot on a beach. San Francisco beaches are way too cold and windy for a proper swimwear shoot to happen. I thought of doing it in LA this summer, but then since I was going to Miami, I

I always love finally meeting people after being friends with them on Facebook/Instagram for many years. In this case, Olivia and I first met through Model Mayhem, but we kept in touch via Instagram and Facebook for the past 2 years or so. And we finally met in person during my trip to Miami for swim week. What most people don’t know about Olivia is that she’s also a PhD student too! Beauty and brains is definitely a deadly sexy combination! During our shoot, my camera and lenses started to fog up. I blamed it on Olivia. But we both realized it was because of the extreme changes in temperature when we came out of the air-conditioned hotel and into the super humid/hot beach. So we ended up shooting at my hotel balcony at the Shore Club, which turned out wonderfully after all.

Hope you enjoyed the shots!

Back in June, I did a quick shoot with Trang (aka @trangspage on Instagram) around Union Square. It was my first time shooting with her, but the moment I met her, I knew we would get along very well. Even though we were pressed for

It’s been almost FOUR years since I last shot/saw my favorite Brazilian model Paula Newlands! This was a very special reunion, especially since I got to see her in her home state (Florida) this time around. Let’s just say the tropical weather makes for perfect

Miami Fashion Week #MBFWSwim

It’s been awhile since my last update, but things have been hectic ever since I took off for Miami Swim Week last weekend. It’s my first fashion week in Miami, and I must say, I had such a blast! Definitely one of the most memorable times I’ve ever had! I made lots of new friends and most importantly, I spent some quality time with my fav Miami blogger / bae Ria Michelle. We’ve been planning to meet up ever since she visited San Francisco last July for Outside Lands, and it was finally time we got to hang out and shoot! I was also joined by my dear friend Judy who flew all the way from LA and planned this trip with me too. I’ll be posting more later on, but thought I’d share a couple of shots from the early part of my trip! First show I got to see was Poko Pano!

Throughout the shoot, I thought Karen pretty much floated in her outfit. Hence the title “Float” – ┬ájust like her tattoo! It’s been three weeks since we last shot together, I miss shooting with her! But great news, I’ll be doing a shoot with her
