shipwreck ~

This may come as a surprise, but this abandoned ship does exist in Point Reyes just north of San Francisco. Scenic in its entirety, this location was a bundle of joy to shoot in. I decided to add some fuzz & fringe, and create a timeless, cinematic scene. This ship is abandoned, but not forgotten, as tourists continuously visit this location to see it for themselves. I highly recommend a visit!

A "magic city hippie" is how I felt while wearing this get up on the way to the dreamy Big Sur. It's also the name of an album that I can't stop listening to right now from Robby Hunter Band. Anyway, these are probably the coolest pair of pants I've worn in a long time ~ and I definitely let my inner wild-child out during this shoot (and the entire time I wore them).

Big Sur is where the magic is ~ every sunset is breathtaking and the views are surreal. I always find myself wanting to go back to explore every chance that I get. On our way back from San Francisco this past weekend, we made a pit stop in Big Sur right as the sun decided to set. Luckily, I had this beautiful top & skirt from Catherine Fulmer to match the golden tones and a pair of wings to accentuate the heavenly-vibe that Big Sur creates. Do you ever hear a song that continues to bring you back to a particular memory? Well, "Hold Me Down" by Mansionair always takes me back to Big Sur. The giant redwoods, smell of campfire, and infinite views of the ocean are the perfect visual for the soundtrack.

long train runnin' ~

While driving into Santa Barbara, we crossed these train tracks and noticed the way the golden hour sun was reflecting off of the tracks. Too good to be true ~ we stopped to take a closer look. We always try to plan our road trips in order to arrive right at golden hour so we can shoot through sunset. Luckily, this spot came at the perfect timing.

Night time was the best time for this vacant gallery to be, because we filled it with vivid hues, bright ideas, and enchanting clothing ~ 'twas the perfect canvas for us to create amazing photos with light painting. I really enjoyed this collaboration with Darius Twin and David Dietche, and I look forward to showing you more.

and so it begins ~

Felt like Ed from Big Fish during this set as I journeyed through this mystical scenery. The sun hit the trees, creating elongated shadows to fill the frame. I made sure not to wear shoes with laces, so my shoes wouldn't get thrown onto a highrope while entering Spectre ;)
Here's a song I can't seem to get enough of...

psychic city ~

Catherine Fulmer sweater & skirt

So often we travel to remote locations, but never get to truly admire the beauty of our own city. Well, last night we decided to take an adventure through downtown and shoot at some of our favorite spots. It's always an exciting journey while strolling through downtown, because you can always discover something new. Well, this time, we discovered this amazing mural done by Thierry Noir and had to stop and shoot.

I took a lil walk on the moon the other day. Okay, not really, but I felt as if I did because of this magical location! We took a pit stop on the way back to LA from Las Vegas, because we saw this spot in the distance and had to see more! It just so happened to be golden hour, and the color scheme was killer ~ so I decided to add some more golden tones.

If you're like me and have a slight obsession with abandoned places, this water park is something you'll surely have a liking for ~ it covers a lot of ground with a jetsons-like, retro design. This water park was a big hit in the 70s-80s, but faced a major downturn in the years following. It switched ownership in the 90s and became "Rock-A-Hoola," but only lasted 3 years before the water park closed with 3 million in debt. It's been deteriorating ever since the final closure, but growing to become an artist's palette for photo shoots and street art. We brought our skateboards along and skated through the entire park at sunset. It felt pretty badass, not gonna lie.

I just got back from a little New Years getaway to Big Bear with some friends. We shot this sequence in 9 degree weather, shivering from head to toe ~ but I loved the way this Kerol D kimono looked on that cushiony, 10 inches of snow! I couldn't have ended 2014 a better way than with snow, good friends, cabin jams and champagne. Happy new year, yall :)
