Russell Shearer, mastermind of Origami Cacti, partnered with a VC to create this collaborative origami wall installation at their SF offices. I spent an afternoon with them, documenting the hanging of this glorious installation, the measuring, drilling, gluing, autographing and the group photo of all the contributors.
True&Co makes buying bras an enjoyable process for women of all shapes and sizes. I had the chance to work with an amazing team to create over 20 different images that paint a picture of a woman who lives life on her own terms.
This online shop launched in Fall 2014 with a loud and clear definition of urban prep. I helped build up a collection of original Instagram content that illustrated their vision, not only through clothing, but also through architecture, lifestyle and food imagery.
Photography, Art Direction
I needed to create original imagery for another project and happened to know the residents of this gorgeous home. I took an afternoon to photograph the space home-tour style. But really, I'll take any excuse to see the insides of a space like this.
Oh Happy Day
Prop Styling, Crafting, Art Direction
I answered a call for stylists for the popular SF-based party blog and was lucky enough to work with Jordan Ferney herself (she's hilarious!). My role was to collaborate with the photographer and crafter to execute multiple project concepts in single-day shoots. The proper result? Blog post content consistent with OHD style and high quality. The real result? A fun day full of laughter and punches of color.
Prop and Photo Styling
A concept shoot with Connie Chung and Bryan Song. Connie is a fellow stylist at heart and am I so happy she found me on the world wide web. We planned out this test shoot concept and as we worked together one Saturday, I learned that not only are she and Bryan are the cutest couple ever, but they're also amazing collaborators. Can’t ‘til next time!
I tagged along on this culinary shoot for the digital release of The Professional Chef on Inkling. Aya Brackett was our photographer and she did her own styling as well -- I brought a suitcase of props from home and assisted in the background, happily chopping, washing, wiping down and setting up the next shot.
One of my first professional experiences was assisting stylist Nissa Quanstrom on this cheese shoot for 7x7 Magazine in January 2012. Annie Martin was the photographer, and I had the honor of meeting Daphne Zepos, who was the most passionate cheese-wrangler / co-owner of the Cheese School in San Francisco.
Nissa was amazing to watch in action. I wanted to know everything that was going on in her head so that I could learn to be more like her.
S + A Cabo Wedding
Graphic Design, Production, Art Direction
Bay Area residents Sarah and Augustine decided to go the distance and get married in Cabo, and I was lucky enough to design their wedding suite. They came to me with their color scheme and "airline ticket" concept in mind and gave me just the right amount of direction for me to pull it all together. Classy, lightweight, with a splash of tropical details.
