New Year | New Things

Happy New Year everyone! I wanted to ring in the new year in one of my favorite looks, from this past holiday season, the perfect ensemble to a holiday event, the ideal New Years Eve look, ect. These gorgeous pieces from Dear Freedom, immediately caught my eye because of the unique geometric patterns of the top and the edgy design of the white culottes. This look paired with my favorite pair of Charles and Keith white slip-ons  and lily- kit choker made for the ideal outfit!

Shoe Things | Spring St.

I have always been an avid admirer of the perfect low shoe, sneakers, flats you name it, if it doesn’t elevate my height and force me to walk like a new born gazelle, then I will wear it! So of course you can imagine my immediate joy at purchasing  a pair of unconventional white slip on sneakers from Charles and Keith. Now I know I may sound biased as I own a pretty decent amount of their pieces but, what I love about their shoes are that they set themselves apart from other shoes, in that they do not fit into the mold of standard everyday shoes in terms of what fits the standard. There are also a pair of flats that I can say were very aesthetically pleasing. The flats from their new velvet collection have a pointy toe with a really cool rounded heel, low enough that I can wear it everyday, but dressy enough, where I can wear it out on special occasions as well. Donned with a pair of oversized jeans and a white button down, I share with you how I went from casual with white slip-on’s to slightly dressy with flats with the same outfit. Trust me shoes relly do make the difference.

VALERIA LEONOVA| SOHO

Anyone who knows me, knows that I have always been an avid fan of the button down shirt, whether you pair it up with a clean and polished look or a dressed down one, it is the go to essential that can complete many an outfit. This week I shot model Valeria Leonova in soho, who’s personal style was an ode to the button down mantra. Valeria had just come from a couple of go-sees before our shoot and I immediately loved her outfit. The very masculine yet, edgy look paid homage to the 1920’s look, when women first started sporting trousers. Details on her outfit can be found below.

Valentina Robayo | STREETSTYLE : BLEEKER ST.

This week I had the opportunity to photograph my good friend Valentina Robayo. Valentina has always had an effortless and great sense of style, ranging from eclectic to trendy but always one that was her own. The challenge this week was to capture images that complimented her outfit and personality and to deviate away from the cliched location spots for photographs.  Which is how we found ourselves on Bleeker Street. After having lunch at By. Chloe, which was in the area we decided to just walk around get a feel for the locale and see what worked best. New York City is known for being overrun with taxi’s, and because I love taking risks to get that good shot, it was difficult trying not to get run down by a plethora of vehicles, pedestrians and/or  yellow taxi’s. Several photographs later, we managed to get great photo’s that I’m excited to share with you all today. Check it out! Details on her outfit can be found below.

MODEL BEHAVIOUR

Every photographer loves the chance to film/ photograph a subject that inspires them to WANT to photograph them. As a photographer one of the best things about photographing an individual is the emotion and/or enthusiasm you get from the person being photographed, you start to relish that moment and are even more excited to take photo after photo. Because everyone knows that a photographer can be good, but their subject must be better. In a sense it’s a two way street, the dance of give and take, where the subject gives and the photographer takes. Now enough of my endless blathering, today’s blog post is one I am super excited to share!! I had the amazing opportunity to photograph Korean models, Jihye Park and Ji Young Kwak, after walking the Badgley Mischka show. I absolutely loved shooting them!! They brought so much energy, hitting pose after pose and were by far my favorite models during NYFW to photograph. The two friends have been spotted on multiple streetstyle blogs, and on the runway of multiple shows during that week. Without further ado, I am very excited to share with you all these photographs from that day!
