Cranberry Crown

 Firstly, this is NOT me. 
I'm a photographer, so I shoot this session. 
My model was the lovely Christine, who I contacted when I initially had this concept for a natural, creek type shoot. I really wanted a berry crown so my best friend Bibbles (Bless him and his great ideas) ordered this from a local florist. Alicia Hathaway was my AMAZING makeup artist and I highly recommend you check her out here.
Anyway this shoot came together almost exactly like I had it in my mind, which as you fellow photographers know, is very rare. This is my favorite set by far and it's only encouraging me to keep shooting and building an even better portfolio! Exciting things!

Crowns and Jewels

 H&M stripped dress and black blouse, Jeffery Campbells Litas, forever 21 bag

On friday I did a little photo shoot with my assistant, makeup artist and a model at a pretty creek in Slo. We had this berry crown especially made for the shoot, so the next day I decided to do a little look with it myself. Hey.. I cant let such an elegant crown go to waste, can I?
Photos from my shoot will be in my next post!

I'm cold. Yes I'm cold. But not as cold as you are.

 Jeffery Campbells, Urban outfitter tights, Betsy Johnson socks, forever 21 jacket and skirt.

I've come to realize that I do a very strange thing. 
I completely turn off my emotions and become completely cold when I feel like I'm going to get hurt.
I just shut down. I stare off into space, not thinking or feeling anything. When others try to speak to me I feel like I can't return any kind of response. I want to move my body, reposition my legs but I remain frozen.
I've never been able to control this sensation of emotional coldness.
My mind quickly responds to threats and shuts down.
January is cold.

And now.. Bubbles.
 All photos taken by me!

Big news!

 Forever 21 dress, Jeffery Campbells, H&M box bag, Vintage beret

 It's dusk and it's cold. You're stomping along, crushing withered, tawny leaves only to peer at the sky through wire branches. At this moment everything is in a frozen purple haze of a covering world. This is when you realize that the moon wasn't always above you. Two nights ago it was floating above the distant hills. And two weeks ago there were no leaves to crush under studded boots. 
As you move at an easy pace, the empty trees seem to rotate like silent and dark carousels.
Everything stops, everything keeps going.

  I'm getting back to my 60s roots, especially with this look. That is kind of odd for me to say because really so much of modern fashion is 60s based and no one even realizes it. Anything a-line and shift. Tights. Collared coats and dresses. So much has carried over, that is considered normal and "today".
Anywho time for my big news!!!
The amazing clothing company I work for called Collection B  is going to have a FULL PAGE ad in the next issue of NYLON magazine, featuring myself and some photographs I took!
So basically I'm going to be in Nylon Magazine!
I'm pretty excited and happy for Collection B. They create great, quality jackets and their popularity is growing all the time! Please take a minute to "like" them on facebook!
And look for me, you Nylon lovers this February!
