Russell Shearer, mastermind of the Origami Cacti, partnered with a client to create a giant origami wall installation at their SF offices. The employees themselves hand folded each of the piece, making this an impression collaboration that the client can truly be proud of. My contribution was photography for Russell's product website: 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 create a collection of original Instagram content to illustrate their vision, not only through clothing, but also through architecture, lifestyle and food imagery.
Photography, Art Direction
I required original imagery for another project and happened to know the residents of this gorgeous home. I took an afternoon to photograph the space, channeling my inner Selby. But really, I'll take almost any opportunity to see the insides of a living space like this.
Oh Happy Day
Prop Styling, Crafting, Art Direction
This popular SF-based party blog made a call for stylists and I answered. I was fortunate enough to work with the exuberant Jordan Ferney herself and learn from her. My role was to collaborate with the photographer and crafter to execute multiple project concepts in single-day shoots. The expected result? Blog post content consistent with OHD style and high quality. The real result? A fun day full of punches of color and sounds of laughter.
Prop and Photo Styling
A concept shoot with Connie Chung and Bryan Song. I am happy so happy Connie found me on the world wide web. Shes a fellow stylist at heart, an aficianado for the beautiful. We planned this test concept together on a Saturday, between our three full time jobs. I learned that not only are she and Bryan are the cutest couple ever, but they're also amazing collaborators. Can’t wait ‘til next time!
A 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 rolled over with a suitcase of props 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. I loved designing their wedding suite! They came to me with their color scheme and "airline ticket" inspiration 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.
