BÉBÉ



My pal Megan is WITH CHILD and we celebrated earlier this month up at her adorable dollhouse home with a sweet baby shower. Major congrats to Megan and her husband Gery! Their daughter is due in January! So crazy. BABIES. I wish Anabela could have magically teleported to the party, but at least there’s some coverage of her impressive baby gift skills on her blog. I snapped a quick pic of her cute handmade blanket waiting on the baby’s crib, the little gray sheep is the best part. We had lots of good snacks and I took some pretty funny photos of Megan cradling an amazing/terrifying fairy princess doll that she got as a gift from one of her mother’s friends, whose mother is a doll collector? Something like that. I’m also seriously impressed at the dress collection this baby is going to have, we’ve been joking around about all the baby photoshoots we will have to do but now it seems inevitable, haha. Baby stuff isn’t really my thing but it’s fun when it’s with your friend! And extra fun when your friend has crazy vintage baby bonnets and dresses with kittens coming out of the pockets (cred to Jen for that one!)

For now, more cute stuff.

SUMMERLAND HOLIDAY LOOKBOOK / LOOKING GLASS


I shot a spooky holiday lookbook for Summerland, finally making use of a broken cello I’ve kept since it arrived busted on my doorstep back in Brooklyn. It was fun to take photos with Tori Lynne, a total doll who has a sweet vintage shop of her own. She has some major young Pre-Raphaelite vibes, I love it! These images are a mix of 35mm film and digital.

FASHION FRIDAY / THE BLUE DRESS


The Fall 2013 Valentino RTW collection continually haunts my brain. There are a lot of ridiculously fancy things happening in fashion editorials these days, people are going crazy with the painterly/regal/tapestry looks lately and I LOVE IT. Oh, everyone looks like a crazy fairytale? Ok. This is my slightly obsessive compilation dedicated to a couple of the beautiful blue dresses from the Valentino collection.

FIN + FLOWER




A few misc film images that I like as a group. Organic shapes, petals, creatures, and some good colors.

I – A double exposure of Sydney from a Yo Vintage shoot, maybe even two years ago, at the old Fieldwork Flowers HQ.

II – Megan’s flower crown leading our way to Victoria, from our little roadtrip up there earlier this year for Crystal Visions. Rachel has been posting a few photos from last year’s party on her instagram, which you should follow. I don’t think I ever posted about the trip but it was so fun, driving the Olympic Peninsula with Megan for her first Canadian experience. Victoria was looking extra cute with all the cherry blossoms, Princess St., Floral Chapel, etc. Then, the wine and the ladies (I only came here for two reeeeasons).

III – dalas at the Maui Aquarium from our Hawaii trip earlier this year.

IV – My friend Kevin’s amazing fishtank, with ALL REAL plants (and fish, duh). REAL coral. Something else really real: the fish named Beyonce.
