Paula Newlands | Bikini Season

Paula Newlands | Bikini Season

Is it summer yet? I’ve grown tired of watching all the snow and winter looks on my Instagram feed that I thought I would heat things up with these photos I took of my favorite Brazilian model Paula Newlands. We shot this in the Shore

Naty Michele | Broadway & 63rd

Naty Michele and I have been friends for as long as I can remember. We don’t see each other much except for NYFW since she lives in New Jersey. There was this one time she visited SF and I saw her for a good hour 

Jeanne Grey | Snow White

Jeanne Grey | Snow White

For the record, Jeanne Grey was the very first blogger I met and shot during my NYFW trip. I was glad that it was her because I really love working with her. She always brings a stellar style each time I work with her, and each look is always as fresh as baby powder. The last time we shot was in September’s fashion week, and unfortunately we missed each other a couple of times when she was in the West Coast. Funny story, we took several shots around Times Square. After half an hour has passed, she confessed that she hated Times Square. Since I was in tourist mode, I made the realization that her outfit would be best shot on a dark background. So we actually wandered around Midtown looking for spots and we came upon this black staircase/door area. I’m glad we took that extra time to explore, having the right background makes a difference, especially if it’s clean and creates contrast. Hope you enjoyed the shots! Check out her blog post for more details of her outfit: The Snow White Effect.

I had the pleasure of meeting Paola Alberdi of Blank Itinerary at fashion week. It was actually through an introduction from Thania Peck of Catcher in the Style. She’s now one of my new favorite bloggers to shoot! In between shows, Paola and I had

If I recall correctly, the last time I shot Eugenie Grey was actually during last September’s New York Fashion Week (click here). She’s been such a jet setter that I never get to meet her in Los Angeles. Nevertheless, it felt great to shoot with 

New York Fashion Week Streetstyle – Day Three

New York Fashion Week Streetstyle – Day Three

I learned that snow days in New York City are usually warmer than non-snow days during the winter season. I’m not quite sure why but I’m sure there’s scientific reason behind it. I spent the whole day at Lincoln Center this time, and caught a lot of amazing bloggers. The snow started to fall later in the afternoon, which was pretty fun at first (see Melanee Shale welcoming the snow flakes) but then it got more intense later in the day that it made it difficult for my camera to focus and function. I’m pretty sure that’s how my camera started acting up at the end of the day. Without further ado, these are my favorites from day three of New York Fashion Week:

New York Fashion Week Streetstyle – Day Two

Today was perhaps the coldest day of New York Fashion Week. The morning was so chilly, it was almost unbearable to take any shots outside. I also had a really tough start. Planned on arriving at Lincoln Center for the MONGOL fashion show, but ended
