New Year Resolved

31st December 2013

year_end_1I was going to do an end of the year post, but I’ve decided to not look back.

I was going to write down a list of resolutions for 2014, but resolutions are only good for remembering what you did differently for the first couple of months of the year, by the end of the 12 months.year_end_2

All in all, my upcoming goals are modest and simple, this year. Besides working toward a clearer visual identity for myself, I’d like to accomplish the following:

  • Clear out my closet of oversized band shirts and invest in more good quality, bright and simple pieces
  • Find a weekly fitness routine that I love (hello again, NTC)
  • Continue making our house a home


Outfit Anatomy: My Own Treasures

23rd November 2013

I’ve had the coziest wool shirt that I spent a little too much money on, for years now. I’ve probably worn it about 3 times because every time I put it on, it makes me look like I’m trying to cover up a baby bump. Its just expensive enough that I can seem to part with it, so every couple of months I try it on with something new in hopes that it’ll look the way it was intended to before I bought it and butchered its mystique by pairing it with different kinds of worn jeans. And the other day, IT WORKED!

I found a skirt that I nearly tossed because I forgot that it had been hiding out at the bottom of my closet, had it team up with the mumu shirt, and my favorite shoes and found my new favorite outfit!

Don’t you love when the saying “one mans trash is another mans treasure”, when it applies to future you and not some stranger that wants your sloppy seconds?

5 Faces of Outside Lands

13th August 2013

 I spent my weekend in the Golden Gate park taking photos of the music and art festival Outside Lands. Its the perfect amount of outdoorsy-ness for me. Theres constant music, nice people, and artisan food vendors and every turn to go along with the woodsy atmosphere.

I have tons of photos I’d like to share from the festival, but for now, heres 5 portraits I took though out the weekend!

I Love Collecting Photos Of Strangers

27th July 2013

I love taking photos of new people because I everyone is so unique that every photo I get that I’ve never gotten before is as fulfilling of a collection to me as stamps are to old men and police reports are to Amanda Bynes.

 No matter how many times I do it, theres always something exciting and scary about taking photos of strangers. I never want them to look contrived and I hate the rejection of someone saying that they don’t want their photo taken. Actually, I think its not the rejection as much as its the difficulty I have restraining myself from trying to convince them that they look awesome and should totally have their face or hair our outfit or laugh documented at that very moment, and instead just saying “oh, okay. Sorry then” and moving on. Its a really fun practice of interaction every time I shoot an event. I’m in a room full of people that are aware that they’re going to be looked at and are prepared (and even sometimes excited) to have their photo taken! It’s liberating!  The last event I got to shoot was for the opening of artist Sylvia Ji’s Mexican Textile inspired show that the FFDG Gallery in San Francisco. The bay are is full of real fun characters and I got to collect shots of a lot of them, to share in my own way!

 Check out some photos I took from the event on the FFDG site!
