Step Rockets

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!! I’m a little late with blog posts but I promise I have a bunch of drafts I just need to work on before posting them online.

This year has been the year of working with talented musicians and singers. I love these sessions only because I get my own private show of their talent, directed at my camera = directed at me = feeling all the love and feeling like I’m one of those private photographers for concerts (Still waiting for that to happen).

Check them out on https://www.steprockets.com/ & Instagram!!

I’m very thankful for my friend Lee Vue for connecting me with them. I had such a blast working with Step Rockets: Brady, Joshua and Johnny. They’re each so different too so to see how balanced they are with each other despite their different personalties was fun to watch.

As you may notice, we had a lot of fun with Projections and Gels, which is something I love to shoot.

Keep an eye out for all their updates and the photos from this shoot!! :)

Collective Vibe Collaboration

A few weeks ago, I was asked if I would like to join Collective Vibe on their 6 photographers photograph 1 model. Fast forward a few weeks later and we made it happen. Below are the final selection that we made, we had 2 hours to go through the whole shoot and figure out which one shot we wanted to show for votes.

This was a super fun experience, I felt honored to be asked to be one of the guest photographers for this challenge. Shooting for 5 minutes per look did give me a little anxiety attack. I don’t like shooting under the pressure of time crunch but it was a nice challenge and I enjoyed the challenge. Thank you all for your amazing skills for making this happen!!

These two amazing girls are also sisters!!

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.

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!!

www.prettyrockgirlcollection.com

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!
