(Almost) Famous (Again)





I don't know how I neglected to post this earlier, but back in Early February, I went to NYC again. I love the big apple - it was good to me and the weather was unseasonably nice. I got to meet Connie from Refinery29, hang out with my friends Momo, Eyad, Kate, and my old stylist Ashley. I rode on a Ferris wheel in Toys R' Us in Times Square and attended the Independent Fashion Bloggers conference. The neatest part, of course, was going to Lincoln Center. Ashley and I went quickly on day one just to see some insiders and soak up the atmosphere. I ended up being stopped by various photographers, including on working for the famed fashion resource, the Cut. I made it on slide 9 next to various editors and insiders, and obviously, I was on cloud nine.

Little Olenslagga'





I had the pleasure of shooting Brianna from Look again last Friday. You might remember Brianna from my grunge shoot last year. I'm incredibly excited to show you the photos but unfortunately I cannot at this time as they were for a client...however, soon they'll be release and you know they'll be right here. Anyway, this is just a shot of Bri between changes via Instagram, freezing her little body away. The look was very different from the grunge shoot, but I think we both played our parts and captured it quite well. Stay tuned!

Reasons to be Beautiful




A few quick snaps of my sister as the sun was setting today. Unedited. 

*Update* I feel like I ought to mention why I chose to post these unedited. When I first started using photoshop many years ago, I was eager to use the tools I had access to. I overedited everything - brightening eyes, retouching the shit out of skin, adding textures, and silly edits. Once I realized how overboard I had gone and toned it done a bit. Now I even think the things we would often edit out - pore, freckles, and other skin textures - are absolutely beautiful. I love the texture of the skin in these photos. And that is why I will not be retouching them.

Anywhere

 

It's rare for me to take a photo and not know where I took it....but here's one. Looks like a lovely but anonymous SF street.
