This shoot was done a few months ago - the day I signed my lease for my new apartment in the Mission District of San Francisco. What a whirlwind it's been since then, one filled with moving, trips to IKEA, trips to Hawaii, trips to Toronto, and beyond.
Life is full of ups, downs, and side to sides, and sometimes when it's on its way down or just being shaken about, I don't feel like shooting. And since I do this because I love it (yes, I truly, always do), I don't see why I should force myself to do it when I'm experiencing some bumps in my road.
That said, sometimes it is the bumpy road that enables the creative vision, and that's what I am experiencing right now. Stay tuned for some shoots. There are good things up ahead. I'm really excited about all the ideas shooting in and out of my inbox right now.
As for this shoot, it was for a small vintage clothing brand called Dreamygear. Bee came from the UK for about two weeks, and we nailed another 90s shoot, this time the tie-dye look (since I've done plenty of grunge) for the brand. It was nice to shoot with fresh-face-inked-arms Jake and a familiar face, Alnna. I shot Alana's model book last year and was so happy when I found out she was signed with Scout shortly thereafter.
