How fun! It was such a pleasure photographing Danny Brown's new spot downtown. I didn't know pears could be this pretty....

Summer Wrap Up

Phew! What a great but tiring summer for clients. Always grateful to be working with such killer people & companies. Its always nice to work with friends on shoots. Here's one of my favorite outtakes & chosen shots I did with Sharon for an up and coming bag company ;)

Mallard Clothing

Its so funny how often I am asked to photograph women and not men. I guess once you start a portfolio, you tend to get hired for work in that same area. I was so happy to shoot for this preppy lifestyle company Mallard. We did this over 2 days in sunny Santa Monica, but the feel is so NorthEast.....I have a knack for locations ;) Their website is looking awesome.

New Work, New Portfolio

Time is a funny thing. It can be hard at times for me to see my progress as a photographer and business owner....sometimes as a human being in general. It wasn't until I decided to finally sit down and organize my work from the past two years, that I realized just how much work I've done! Updated the portfolio, and now I need more photos for it. Let's go shoot!

2016->2017

At the end of each year as a freelancer, I try to reflect and re-evlaute where I went wrong and where I went right, before bringing on new assignments. Working with both large corporate companies and intimate one on one portrait sessions has kept this year fresh.  The only days that ran together were those spent editing. I've seen a lot of cities from the windows of public transportation and met a lot of people I would like to see again.

Thankful for those that I call my friends that have been my second shooters, makeup artists and trusty assistants. All the flights to the West Coast has brought on new sunny clients, but more importantly time to spend shooting for myself on a boulevard I've fallen in love with. You can check my about page for more specific publications from this year.

Though I have many focused goals for my photography (mostly doing a serious update on this website), there's only one worth mentioning- to just keep making photos. Cheers to 2017 and thanks to 2016 for all the lessons. 

Over the past few months, I've been pickier about what assignments I take on as I try to transition into more full time personal documentary projects. Saying 'no' to a lot of work that I've otherwise would have said yes to, has been proving to be easier than I thought. By taking on fewer assignments, I've been able to take more intimate portraits, something that I hope will carry into the projects I am now concentrating on. This is one of my favorite images of an editorial shoot that I said 'yes' to. Melody is starting a training program for teachers/parents/coaches to work with young women in achieving overall happiness, strength and confidence. She commissioned me to take photographs of her, and I couldn't be happier that she did.
