so backed up on my editing it's kind of ridiculous.
prepare yourself for
a visual torrent of posts to go up all at once in the near future.

This week my lovely Meesh and I had a little fun in the studio, I used the images for a fashion assignment for class where we had to do a series of different poses without changing the background or angle.

LF Fashion show

LF, one of my favorite stores, had a fashion show Thursday night and i got press access to take pictures. It was at this sweet bar called Blush and everyone there was so nice! It was a fun night.

Laura and Joe

This darling couple booked me to shoot a couple's session of them, we did these in Santa Monica and I love how they came out. And I love Laura and Joe of course!! We had so much fun and I miss them already :)

My favorites are the last two, the reflection on the sand and the colors of the sunset were so beautiful!

I'm so in love with museums!! I try and visit a museum at least once a month, and with all the amazing options near by like the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, the Getty and the LACMA i'm in heaven. Here are a few pieces I found inspirational in my recent museum ventures...

Francois-Joseph Navez, "The Massacre of the Innocents" viewed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC

"Springtime" and "The Storm", both by Pierre-Auguste Cot. Also seen at the Met, absolutely breathtaking in real life. The paintings are huge, probably 6 feet tall maybe even more and the light and color and emotion all amaze me!

This is Alberto Giacometti among his work, I viewed a few of his sculptures at the LACMA a few weeks ago and they are so amazing and haunting in person, it re-taught me the power of simplicity.

I can't really explain why, but i'm really drawn to art like this as well. A friend and I were trying to figure out the appeal when i saw this at LACMA and couldn't look away..
