Orla la la...

There's something about gingers...

Okay, so Ford Model Orla has to be in my top 5 most stunning models I've photographed in 
the Bay Area, ever. And ofcourse I ended taking a million pictures of her and got stuck with 
the tedious task of choosing the best images, which there was not one image 
that wasn't gorgeous. Needless to say Im in love with these pictures and proud
of everyone who contributed, even Blanca. Anyways, enough with the personal thoughts
and on to the credits:

Maggie Star

That would be cool if Maggie's last name was Star but alas it's only the name of her agency.
I love this girls look and I know come a few months she is going to be the new face
everyone will want to photograph.

Thank you Liz Chang for doing a flawless job and for having a sweet backyard.

Tyler Robinson the Voice

I had the most amazing, fortunate experience early this month thanks to 
the amazing Celebrity & Fashion Makeup Artist Ashley Gomila.

How lucky can you be to be watching NBC'S The Voice on Monday night and asked to drive
down to Los Angeles to shoot some of the contestants on Friday the same week? I was, and 
I am still in disbelief lol. Shot on the fabulous roof tops of the famous Hollywood Tower Apts.,
former Team Blake contestant, Tyler Robinson was the last singer I'd photograph that warm, 
summer day. Tyler Robinson is as sexy and charming in person, as is his amazing voice. I was 
totally feeling his look and my camera was all over him. 

Check out my image featured in Tyler's interview with and be sure
to download Tyler's latest single 'Get Some' <3 Stay Tuned...

Natalia & Ernest

Hello again. 

Its time for me to share with you the very first wedding I shot this year in Mountain View, CA.
Natalia and Ernest had both there ceremony and reception at The Historic Adobe Building,
a romantic, secret garden of place in the middle of a suburban city. My favorite part of their 
wedding was the warm garden colors everywhere, from the bouquets to the tree centerpieces
on the guests tables that Natalia ingeniously created herself. There was so much love and joy
expressed by the guests and family members, it was truly an honor to witness.

Ok Moms, Aunts & Grandmas, your gonna love this. 
So early this year I met one of the most beautiful models I've honestly ever seen. 
She was blonde, blue eyed, had a gap between her front teeth and was the sweetest young girl I've
ever met. Our testshoot went well and during so I also met her really cool mother, Lindsey who
just so happens to create these ADORABLE hipster like bibs. The San Francisco based
Bibana bibs come in different sizes and fabrics (not to mention the fabric is soft and baby cautious). 

Lindsey sent me a pair of two and right when I put them on my son I JUST had to do a photoshoot. To my amazement, and I know I'm about to sound like every other mom, but my Micah loved the camera and was giggling and drooling the whole time...Maybe we have the next baby supermodel? 
You be the judge : )  and make sure you pick one of these bibs up on Etsy ; )

My Old Ways

Probably the first shoot I did in the beginning of this year, inspired by Dr. Dogs anthem from the 
album 'We all Belong'. I wanted to NOT use a white girl cause that was so predictable for this theme.
So lucky me I got the awesome pleasure to work with Shaunte Chanel again, and this girl is
a goddess in front of the camera. I love every part of her look, her eyes, legs, cheekbones...and most
importantly, Shaunte is by far one of the most humble and professional models 
I've ever worked with.

Here's your girl in Kismet Magazines 14th issue, love it or love it.
