I was finally reunited with Ariana Lauren after not seeing her for almost two weeks due to my traveling schedule. I love hanging out and shooting with her, and she suggested we shoot in Hayes Valley, one of our favorite neighborhoods in San Francisco. We

Most bloggers and photographers have a crazy busy schedule, so it’s always a blessing when Ariana Lauren and I have a full day to do shoots. Actually, we’ve done only half-days which is a 3-4 hour session that ranges from 4-6 looks. We would always shoot until sundown and then finish up with a nice meal somewhere (i.e. Anthony’s Cookies, Project Juice, Umami Burger). That pretty much sums up my favorite type of photo session: shoot and eat. And repeat. Yes. I’m also excited to shoot with Ariana in New York City this week as we both attend New York Fashion Week.

Don’t forget to check out her blog post for more details of her outfit – Fashion Born: Fringe.

This was a look we shot in the Marina. Ariana Lauren then told me how much she loves the Marina District and how she misses living there. That’s when I made the connection, she was totally a Marina Girl all this time and I was just

I remember this moment when Ariana Lauren asked me how to spell “everything” in the phrase “All Black Everything”. I casually told her it was “err’thang” which I’m pretty sure is the correct ghetto-fabulous way to spell it. We shot this around SoMa, right near a freeway entrance which was kind of a bad idea since so many guys kept honking and hollering at Ariana during the shoot. Nevertheless we took lots of good shots and you should now check out her blog post for more details of her outfit: All Black.

I usually avoid shooting around The Mission District due to the foot traffic and craziness, but this shoot was an exception since Ariana and I were already around the neighborhood. Plus it just rained so the rain washed away all the trash and dirt, as
