Easy Going


I know its been a while, but I'm back! A lot has happened since I last posted and I know I say that each time I leave and come back but just to let you in on what has happened in the past few months:
In April I got my first real job as a community manager for an agency, in June I graduated college, and tomorrow I'll be spending a week in Thailand with my two best friends! I also made it a point to travel around the country last summer so I'll probably upload some photos of my trips.

Moving on, would you believe I took these photos 3~5 minutes right before it was about to rain? I love having friends who are up for last minute shoots.

Recently I've noticed that it can get challenging to pick out outfits to model in. There have been countless of times before a shoot where my models hesitates on choosing the right outfit. I've learned that if you're going to take photos of your friends for the first time, you should make it a point to keep the models comfortable no matter what.

One way you can do this is to make sure that they like what they're wearing. I normally ask my friends to wear their favorite outfit and I find that this helps takes the nervousness down quite a bit. If they don't have a favorite outfit you can ask them about what their favorite color is and brainstorm on an ensemble together. For me, a place that has a great range of tops perfect for a photo op would be be blouses from Zalora.

I'll definitely have a Bangkok photo diary up soon, so stay tuned!

Graphic




Hi everyone! 

So I've decided to dedicate a considerable amount of my free time to shoot (call it a resolution of sorts). These photos of Lexy were taken last Tuesday at The Collective (more on that soon). I shot her earlier this year on a whim because I love how she's able to carry her hairstyle so well. I met Lexy when I joined GGFM (my school's radio station) and we got along pretty well. The both of us like to fangirl over Japanese films and culture so it was pretty much inevitable.

Anyway! I'm happy to tell you guys that I have a few cool things planned for the next few weeks. I currently have 2 posts queued so make sure to keep checking and I'm working on updating my blog's layout.

Weekend Drive





Happy hump day to you all!

Over the weekend I took some photos of my long time friend (and model), Steffi. Its always a pleasure working with someone you've grown so close to over the years. I love how we were able to form a dynamic where we both don't need to say much to get "the" shots.

The last time we hung out was over a year ago and we still find ourselves reminiscing over our time in New York. We shot different layouts under the course of an hour (which is probably the fastest I've ever worked in a while). I've got some posts lined up for you guys so stay tuned!


P.S.
I'm in the process of looking for someone to redesign my website so if you know anyone who might be interested, please send them my way!
