Ready for more outtakes? I had so much fun with the girls at NEXT Management, I just had to share more! Pyper was such a blast to work with and full of personality! I can’t wait for you to see the rest of the portraits.
The below wine pairing photo shoot was incredibly fun, and delicious. We worked with wines from Domaine LA, a chic Los Angeles based wine retailer. Each wine paired with a different sweet or savory treat, from jam and cheese to truffles and dark chocolate. See below for more information on the yummy food.
Sqirl provided the black mission fig and red wine jam
Sneak peek! I am super excited about my studio shoot with Next Management and their models. Next Management works with some of the top models in the industry, including some of the girls from America’s Next Top Model! The girls were incredibly sweet and a blast to work with. Full studio session unveiling soon, stay tuned!
It was such a treat photographing this beautifully designed West Hollywood property. This was one of my first shoots with the incredible interior designer, Liza Reyes. Liza infuses the perfect blend of rustic charm with modern accents. One of my favorite pieces in the apartment was the incredible chandelier. I must say, I’ve gotten some great tips for decorating my apartment! See the photographs from Liza’s property below.
Venice is one of my favourite places in LA to photograph. From the Venice canals to the beach boardwalk, there are so many incredible backdrops for lifestyle shoots. The below is a session I did with the beautiful Athena, a model/actress who was in need of updating her portfolio. We went from the canals to the streets of Abbot Kinney, finding colorful backdrops along the way.
We recently photographed the adorable West Hollywood shop, Max & Moritz, for Daily Candy. The shop is filled with incredible housewares and antique furniture. One of the founders, Nino Mier, is also the owner of one of my favorite eateries, Foodlab. After the shoot at Max & Moritz, he took us to a wonderful lunch at the restaurant. Fun fact: their kale salad is the best I’ve ever had. I had a wonderful time at this shoot and I’m hoping to go back and photograph the restaurant the next time around!
I had the pleasure of photographing this stunning South African beauty, Nicola. She was in need of portraits of herself for her new business venture and I was more than happy to oblige. The sunshine streamed in from her apartment windows providing the perfect light for our session. See the photos from our simple yet sophisticated shoot below.
Joy Cho is the creative genius behind Oh Joy, a lifestyle, fashion and design site and now, studio space. Her new studio, designed by HGTV star, Emily Henderson is a creative haven filled with prints, patterns and pops of color. I was, of course, enamored with all of the bold hues. This shoot was originally featured in the relaunch of The Everygirl. Check out all of the fun we had below!
Music feeds my soul. Photographing bands holds a special place in my heart and there’s nothing better than capturing the different personalities of each band member. I was lucky enough to photograph my friends, Basement Babies for a second time. The last time was for their show at the Bootleg Theater. This time, we were able to interact much more and I was able to capture some great individual portraits. We had so much fun, everyone jumped into the pool at the end!
Culver City has quickly transformed into a culinary haven. The latest restaurant to burst on to the scene is The Wallace, helmed by chef Michael Teich. This delicious shoot, an exclusive for Daily Candy, was so much fun thanks to the terrific food and company. Beverage director, Holly Zack, made us craft cocktails, my favorite being the passion fruit cocktail and season-appropriate eggnog. Photographing the beautifully plated entrees was a pleasure and we were lucky enough to enjoy it once the shoot was over! You must visit and order the scallops as well as the roasted squash with cilantro quinoa. I will definitely be back to dine with friends now that the restaurant is officially open.
