Natural Inspiration

I take morning walks and find great inspiration in vines and leaves on the trees along my path. This morning I came across this really cool starburst flower on tree that I've passed thousands of times and never noticed. I later used it in my shoot that was a focus on french braided hair on the lovely Kara Birkenstock.

A very fun shoot I recently shot for The Daily Mail's Sunday Magazine, You, out of the UK.

Deer Darling

I am a frustrated painter and from time to time I muster up the courage to put paint to paper. I am taking a painting class every wednesday in a wonderful backyard studio in Venice. I always love the last minute inspiration that strikes and decided to play with a promo postcard that I've had lying in my car. I have often done collages with other people's imagery, but this was one of the first times I've played with my own photo. I loved creating imagery away from the computer.

Fais Do Do

Relics from a super cool supper club.

I can dive into a garment emotionally. I know a lot of people are the same way. We're the ones scouring thrift stores for a score. I found this doll's dress that looks and feels like history at one of my favorite thrifting haunts in Topanga Canyon, Hidden Treasures. My daughter's friend is turning 10 this weekend and still very lovingly plays with her beautiful dolls. We think this will make a perfect gift.

Kara's sweater

I'm fascinated by the political weight of clothing.
