I’m excited to share this fun editorial that I shot awhile back with the stunning Lexie Felderman. I got my hands on this super cool lieutenant cap from FallenBROKENstreet and I really wanted a excuse to put star stickers all over Lexie’s face. So, I went with this military ish vibe. . . which sorta went more galactic. I honestly love how it turned out! It’s a bit more themed than my normal work.

The funniest thing about this, is that the green puffy jacket became a part of this shoot because it happened to be super cold when we shot this. I brought it for her to warm up with it in between shots,  but I ended up just taking photos while she had it on since I loved that it matched the hat.

Regardless of all that and the freezing temperatures. . . I think that Lexie completely killed it!!

This happens to be a post that should have been up last summer. . . but it fell victim to my hard drive crashing on me. I felt like it was too foxy to ever go un-posted, and it still fits with the current festival season. So here it is.

Every year Spell & The Gypsy Collective kills it with their festival collection. They just tend to ooze that festival vibe better than anyone. Honestly, I haven’t been to a music festival in a few years . . . but I’m still a sucker for that fun festival style. Heck, It’s been a year and I still adore these pieces so much!

 I feel like that says a lot.

Velvet has been having a “serious moment” since last fall and I couldn’t be more supportive. I love everything from how the light reflects off velvet making you shimmer in the sun . . . to it’s soft fuzzy feel. It manages to balance being cozy + luxurious at the same time.  ( which is a difficult look to achieve )  Basically . . . you can’t blame me for crushing hard on velvet pieces at the moment. And these dreamy items that I picked up will likely make you develop a velvet crush too!

I think it’s time that I finally got around to sharing this lovely editorial that I shot for Sticks and Stones Agency a few months ago.

 Sophia drove all the way down from Wyoming to meet me at this research center in Boulder, Colorado. This was our first shoot together, and just from glancing at this place from the parking lot you would be pretty skeptical about my location choice. So as I “the photographer” was smearing various pink eyeshadows all over her eye lids. . . I just kept telling her to trust me. Once she saw the result of the pink mess I had created in the mirror, she looked me straight in the eye & said. . . I think this is going to be a very fun shoot!

Thats when I knew we were about to create some Magic!

Have a love affair with the sun.

In all honesty, there is no better feeling to me than that of the sun’s warmth on my skin after enduring those short/cold. . . even completely sunless days of winter. I have found that my mood definitely has a mutual connection to the weather.  So for me, being able to soak up the sun again literally brings me pure joy. If you can relate,  then I highly recommend that you go out and spend some much-needed quality time in the sun this spring. I know I will!

P.S. You can always count on any flirtatious floral number from For Love and Lemons to help get you in that ever so sweet springtime mindset.

“You taste just right . . .  like Tennessee honey.”

I’ve been in a monochrome mood lately. Hence this mocha colored ensemble that has a sort of unintentional Yeezy Season 1 vibe to it. In my defense . . . from a stylist’s point of view it is actually pretty fun to see what you can do with just one hue.

 Favorite Moments from the Trip:

1. The snowboarding was “ALL TIME” in Hokkaido! I swear it was the most snow I have ever seen in my life. . .  and being able to froth around in it on my snowboard was one of the most unforgettable experiences I have ever had.

2. Feeling rather small next to the Huge Buddha statues that were carved into the side of mount Nokogiri at the Nihon-ji Temple in Chiba was pretty breathtaking. Even if we had to wait at the little train stop in Chiba for well over an hour . . . in fear that it was possible that a train might not even come to take us back to Tokyo. Also the tram ride up to the top of the mountain will be sure to make your stomach drop.

3. Witnessing what might just be the craziest and most bewildering neon show on earth at the Robot Restaurant in Tokyo. Trust me. You won’t know what the hell is going on and it will be amazing!

4. Walking through all of the hypnotizing red gates at the Fushimi Inari-taisha shrine in Kyoto was well worth the day trip to Kyoto in itself.

5. Eating some super delicious sweet crepes on Takeshita Street in Harajuku.

6. Spending a day at Tokyo Disneyland because… why not?! The only ride that was still in English was the Pirates of the Caribbean boat ride. lol. It was super fun!

7. Eating all the sushi! If you have to grab it off a conveyor belt you’re doing something right.

8. Wandering around the Gion District in Kyoto late in the afternoon in order to watch the sunset take place behind the beautiful Yasaka-No-To Pagoda.

9. Admiring the Great Bronze Buddha at the Kotoku-in Temple in Kamakura . . . then going to get ramen noodles just down the street. The Great Buddha sits out in open air ever since a tsunami in 1498 washed away the last building that housed the statue.  I found that to be pretty interesting since it looks so beautiful out in the open, It is hard to even imagine it sitting inside of a building.

10. Embracing the Madness of Shibuya Crossing.
