Ariel Peake at Northern Nights

          Norther Nights was SO. MUCH. FUN!! For sure one of my favorite music festivals of all time. One of the stages was located in a grove of redwood trees with beautiful decorations all around, which is where we shot these photos. Ariel was an "Influencer" for the festival and got a free VIP ticket so she could share and promote the festival with her large social media following. For our first look we shot a hat from Neon Cowboys and then switched it up with an outfit from Noralina Freedom Designs who had a booth at the festival. Our shoot was abruptly ended by someone screaming on an acid trip, but up until that point we had a very lovely time!

Sara

I'm so excited I got to shoot with my friend Sara! She and I met at our mutual friend's birthday getaway weekend where we went wine tasting, hooped, and adventured together and have been friends since! Her red hair, "atomic smile", and ukulele skills made her an inspiring subject to photograph. Sara is currently an ESL teacher, and has plans in the near future to travel to India to get her yoga teacher certification. The shoot took place at a park in Los Gatos, California, where I found a spot where the lighting was just perfect! Enjoy :)

The Golden Choke

Photoshoot for The Golden Choke @thegoldenchoke

Hair and Makeup: Macy Raye Graham at Vivace Salon Pleasanton @by.macy.raye

This photoshoot was a #GIRLBOSS collaboration between me and some of my hometown friends.  Lanea Warren, founder and owner of The Golden Choke, creates the choker necklaces by hand, each with an added touch of a Swarovski crystal and a 24k gold bead.  Her company's mission is to bring about awareness for domestic violence and sexual abuse, as well as encouraging women to embrace their sensuality.  Hair and makeup styling took place at Vivace Salon, a luxurious salon with a patio and garden, in where we shot the first look. Macy worked her magic to create this flawless whimsical look on San Jose model Sarah Lynn. This is my second time shooting with Sarah.  I love shooting with her because she has a beautifully unique way of portraying her essence and emotion through modeling.  Soon after this shoot she shaved her head and headed off to Maui to explore. She stated that she shaved her head in order to work on inner confidence and said that, "I think especially these days girls worry about what they look like and what people think about them, but I say forget that because everyone is different and everyone deserves to be confident in who God has made them to be."
