Camo

So I've been waiting and looking to buy a cool piece of camo online, but found this little jacket in the men's section of a thrift store for only $15USD! (this guy must be really tiny...) I really don't go to thrift stores that much, but always find pieces that I love when I do! This outfit I would say is probably below $100USD. Clutch! I haven't shopped for clothes much lately, because most of my budget has been going towards decorating my new loft (which I'm excited to photograph later!)

Beautiful Thailand

If you're looking for a relaxing family weekend getaway, I highly recommend Sava Villas at Phang Nga, Thailand.  The area is about a 30 min. drive north from Phuket and is slightly less commercialized...for the time being.  Our family spent a long weekend there and I must say the overall experience exceeded our expectations.  We were blown away by the sleek modern architecture and interior design, but what really topped it off was the service.  We received exceptional service from the minute we walked through the door!  Two very sweet ladies and a chef came to pamper us each day of our stay, and the food was delicious!  Check out the photos below.   We got a chance to walk around the entire development so some of the photos below are from other villas.

We haven't had a complete family trip ever since we all started working and having kids, but we were fortunate enough to get most of us together recently for this one (all except for Courtney, boo) so it was extra special. You can only imagine how the dynamics change with a ridiculously cute grandchild around. :)

So LA

I had a crazy, frustrating weekend - trying to deal with big corporations with horrible customer service. After two days of wasted time, numerous phone calls back and forth, and a lot of waiting around, I've finally moved to downtown! Woohoo! We spent till 4am last night unpacking and it's starting to look really noice! 

In honor of DTLA, I wanted to showcase a photo shoot I did with Melly Lee a few weeks ago around the arts district. We did the whole LA shebang - went to Urth Caffe, got a delicious Spanish Latte Granita, went to the bridge, frolicked in the sun.. oh ya know. 
These photos are all shot on film cameras. I chose basic colors with a flowy top to accent my gold shoes from anthropologie. Other than my favorite bright colors - orange and yellow, you can always find me in black and white. Gotta love the basics!!

Party of One

I had the pleasure of working with the beautiful, super talented and upbeat Char Baquiran! I loved working with her because she understands her body and how it moves and flows. It really makes life as a photographer a lot easier!  For this shoot, I wanted to keep it super light, happy and fun, so I called in some of my party friends - balloons and confetti - to set the mood and let Char work the space. 

Let's kick off the summer with a party!

Jealous

I had the opportunity to work with these amazing, goofy, energetic and dope dancers on Feng's newest dance video! I haven't danced in awhile and I'm so grateful that Feng asked me to be apart of this project! It was SOO much fun being around these pros, who can pick up choreo in super speed! We literally learned this dance in two days and shot the dance right after the second practice. I'm not going to lie, I practiced a lot at home so I can look kinda decent next to these guys. :)

You seriously can't watch this video without smiling! But you gotta watch it all the way to the end. Enjoy!!!
