REVOLVE Carnival

REVOLVE Carnival

One of my favorite moments in LA was when REVOLVE took over the entire Santa Monica Pacific Park and threw their own carnival! This was one of those rare moments to take advantage of getting the best shots of the boardwalk without the insane crowd

Erika has become one of my favorite bloggers to shoot. Even though she lives all the way in the OC, she doesn’t mind making the trek to DTLA to shoot with me. This time around, I convinced her to go to Santa Monica with me

Samantha de Galicia | Sunkissed Dreamer

I remember meeting Samantha de Galicia (@samanthamde) for the first time at the Love Culture party a few months back, and from that moment on, I knew I just had to do a photoshoot with her. She’s half Spanish, half Filipina and is super photogenic and fun to hang around. Just last week, Samantha and I attendĀ Social Media Week together in Santa Monica and decided to do a swimwear shoot at the beach since it was just a few blocks from the venue. It was towards the end of sunset and we rushed as fast as we could to get these shots in before the sun completely disappeared. I just love that last glow of sunlight, it is the perfect light you could possibly have for your photos. To see more of her, be sure to check out her blog: Sunkissed Dreamer. She’s one of my new favorites now, so expect to see more of her!

I snapped this photo of Samantha at Social Media Week in between the panels. The panels were very informative. I tried to absorb as much information as I could. There were also some things I already knew, which the speakers helped validated. I highly suggest checking them out if you’re into social media or are an influencer or brand. They are also running Social Media Week in other cities, so be sure to visit their website for more details!

I had the wonderful opportunity to shoot with the lovely Marianna Hewitt during her video shoot with GUESS during my last trip in LA. I joined the team in Santa Monica at the pier on what felt like a nice early summer afternoon. It was
