FASHION DESIGNERS: YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A SELL OUT TO BE SOLD OUT!

FASHION EDITORIAL with Scott

That time Scott had purple hair and I shot him in 3 million degrees Boise weather.

We had fun then started getting grumpy because of the heat and because we were starving. So we shot, bitched around and then went and got giant fries and burgers at Fancy Freeze.

Enjoy ♥

FASHION EDITORIAL with Sammie Fuller

“I am a forest, and a night of dark trees:
but he who is not afraid of my darkness,
will find banks full of roses under my cypresses.”

~
Friedrich Nietzsche


Stoked to finally be able to share these, I had to wait to publish them because they were in Dark Beauty Magazine Issue 34.

I shot these back in January, half-naked Sammie braved the freezing cold and looked amazing doing it. 
We shot in a construction zone with giant BEWARE OF ASBESTOS signs and construction workers giving us weird looks and in other rad places around Boise. 

Enjoy ♥

WANDERLUST: Seattle Aug 2014

My first time in Seattle in images.

I wish I would have captured more of the crazy energy in Capitol Hill were I spend most of my time but I was so overwhelmed by everything that I didn't even think about looking at it through my lens. Well, next time :)

Enjoy ♥

FASHION EDITORIAL with Scott

Scott got these cool new sunglasses and his whole outfit was just amazing, so we decided to walk around the block and take some pictures. You know, just us hanging out and stuff, like OMG! (say with a Shoshanna voice).

Enjoy ♥

HEADSHOT SESSION: Annie Bulow

Annie is an actress and as an actress you definitely need some badass Headshots. Since hers were outdated she emailed me to take some new ones. The next day we met up and I I shot her, with my camera.

Enjoy ♥

BLOG PHOTO SHOOT for MyDecoDay.com

My friend Camilla owns a badass hair salon in Boise with a badass website and badass blog (mydecoday.com). A couple weeks ago she asked me to shoot some images for said badass blog. Something sporty and fun with an edge.

I chose to shoot at Boise High so we can use their tracking field and tennis court. I set it all up for a Monday at 5PM since I figured no one would be around since school would be out. Little did I know it was Labor Day and the whole Football team woulk practicing at exactly that time in full gear and all. Ha! Awkward.

We made it work anyway and shot around them. I really like how the images turned out!

Enjoy ♥
