Celestial Moon Goddess

Hello everyone!!! I know this is a long overdue post but I was reminded of this shoot I did with the super talented ladies: Vanessa Lawson, Brianna Violet, and Victoria Vang. So long story short, I had this amazing shoot with these ladies but we weren't able to post any of them up because I got them accepted into Salyse Magazine. The wait was long....a bit too long that I forgot about them as I continued shooting more projects.

Now you'll get to see more of the photos from the session and there's also a link provided below to view the magazine since we had the honors of being FRONT COVER TOO!!!

I am sooooo incredibly proud of these ladies!! Vanessa Lawson started her own business, launching her fashion line: Porte Celestial. Brianna Violet seems to be painting the world of make up and I'm in love with every new creation she does! You can check her work at Breezy Makeup Art. Victoria is my amazing graphic designer of a sister who's been doing hand crafted mixed media and doodles, you can check her work on her website

Without further ado, more photos from the session.

Michael's Challenge

 

I was super excited as soon as I found out that Michael's was challenging creatives to pretty much go into their shop and do what we've always dreamed of doing: photographing inside their store. Who wouldn't take advantage of this challenge?!?! I certainly did - although they announced it right before I got sick so I had to wait a few weeks before I actually finally did anything about it.

Thank you to the lovely model Houa Vang who reached out to me prior to my health for a shoot, I ended up asking to shoot with her for this. She was so lovely to work with and did a super job! Thank you to my awesome sister Victoria Vang for recording footages for me as always. I was able to keep a memory of this awesome day because of her. Check below for the behind the scenes as to how I shot these with no reflector or other source of lighting besides using the light that was given to me.

Collab: Pretty Rock Girl Collection

Three years of being in love with her creations, I finally got a collaboration to happen between us. Pretty Rock Girl Collection has been on my radar for awhile now, I just love her pieces and they're amazing and glam with an edge - which I love! Check her creations out if you haven't yet!!

I got super lucky and was able to get the amazing Jennifer Chang to model the pieces for me too. Check her out, it took me a year of following her in IG to finally tell myself to just reach out but then she reached out to me first!! She's super awesome, I wish I had reached out to her earlier but it's ok cause we gonna work together again ;)

Special thanks to my sister Victoria for capturing all the footages for me (there's a reason why I've been lacking videos lately - my go-to assistant was too busy to follow me to shoots). She's also an amazing artist so go check out her work too!
