Megan Lee | Abbot Kinney Part Two

Megan Lee | Abbot Kinney Part Two

Abbot Kinney has so many cute spots! There is the Love Wall, by far the most colorful and cutest art wall I’ve ever seen.  Actress/singer Megan Lee and I walked around a few more blocks and ran into these palm trees. We felt like we

Here’s a short and sweet shoot I did with Jill @littleblackboots in Midtown Manhattan during NYFW. We managed to schedule in an end of the day shoot after the shows were all over. Luckily we still had some sunlight left. Hope you enjoyed the photos!

We’ve been trying to shoot for a couple of months now, but I couldn’t meet up with Maria Sivakova (@thelittlemodel_) the last time I was in New York and she was super busy the last time she was in LA. However, we made it work. On my very last day in NYC, Maria and I finally got to shoot. We met up in her neighborhood and shot around the area, which had a lot of cute spots like Tacombe. Van (@forevervanny) was also with us which made the shoot even more fun (click here). She was a pleasure to work with and I look forward to seeing her in LA or NYC, whichever comes first!

Here’s another shoot I did with my favorite blogger in the world, Jess @notjessfashion. We took this around Chelsea in between the Banana Republic presentation and Shopstyle Social House event. This bomber is super cool because it has “notjessfashion” in the back! Check out more

Barbora (@fashioninmysoul) managed to squeeze in a 2 look session before the fashion shows began. Luckily we were staying in the same area, so it was very easy to meet up. I just love shooting in NYC, the cabs and architecture really make all my 

New York Fashion Week | Day Four

New York Fashion Week | Day Four

My day began with an early morning shoot with Czech/German blogger Barbora Ondrackova (@fashioninmysoul) in Midtown. We both realized we were staying pretty close to each other, so it was very convenient to just meet at a Starbucks in the middle. After we had our coffee, we wandered around 7th Avenue for some good spots to shoot and found this awesome crosswalk!

Afterwards it was a quick session with the stunning Jasmine Tosh, who met me back at my hotel. And we basically shot around the hotel, it was pretty convenient having good shooting spots on where I was staying. Did I mention there was a laundromat around the corner that pretty much did all the washing and folding by the pound? Anyways, here’s this hottie Jasmine Tosh. More photos to come!

Then it was off to Tome at Skylight Moynihan.tome-runway-nyfw-ss2017-ryanbyryanchua-4140

I snapped some streetstyle right after the show! Actually was sitting near the Song Sisters so I told Aimee to wait for me outside for quick snaps.

Here’s Happily Grey and Damsel in Dior.

I actually ran into Cyn (@cyneats) and Brandon (@dopensteez) at the show, and Ariana Lauren joined me at my seat as well. It’s nice to see the ol’ SF crew!


Then Ariana and I went back to our old shooting ways.

After we parted ways, I met up with my favorite bay area bloggers, Jessica @Hapatime and Jasmine @LifewithJazz, for a quick shoot on the side of Madison Square Garden!

Then off to Jenny Packham! It was very impressive!

My day wasn’t over just yet. I did a quick shoot with Jill Wallace @littleblackboots whom I haven’t seen in awhile since she’s been traveling all summer. Oh and she was literally half a block from my hotel, so it was so quick to get to her.

After a long day of shoots and runway coverage, it was time to eat. I rounded up Ron @omgitsbomb, Cyn @cyneats, Brandon @dopensteez, Jessica @notjessfashion and her hubby for ramen at NOT Ippudo, but something better. Ron is an expert on NYC restaurants, and he suggested Ramen Zundo-Ya, which he thinks is way better than Ippudo but without the insane lines and crowded space. We were able to seat ourselves instantly. After the first couple of bites, we all agreed that it was better than Ippudo! Definitely check out Ramen Zundo-Ya in East Village!

There was no way we would end the night without desserts. Luckily my favorite spot was nearby – Spot Dessert Bar on St. Mark’s! Cyn got to try all the deliciousness for the first time, like The Harvest which you get to “water” with milk.

No photos but afterwards I made everyone walk with me to Momofuko so I could stack up on cookies! The End.

My day was supposed to start at 8am for a backstage access at Adam Lippes, but Jess and I both changed our minds the night before. We definitely need more sleep after staying up late for photo edits. So our day started at Self Portrait
