Golden Goddess

Oh how I love the wonderful, creative people I get to work with! For this editorial, the model Meliz put together the entire concept, outfit, and location, and I was excited she asked me to bring it to life with my photography. This was one of the rare early-morning photoshoots I’ve done, but the lighting was well worth it! Everything was glowing gold and Meliz exuded total goddess vibes! I also love how everything is in harmony with the Earth and she looks like an Earth-protecting strong female warrior.

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 :)
