visual feast

Lians Jadan, one of my absolute favorite photographers to work with, recently launched his new website, and if you're looking for some eye candy, definitely check it out. From gorgeous fashion photography (a lot of it styled by yours truly!) to the coolest Jeep campaign ever, Lians brings his distinct artistic vision to all of his work. As I was poking around the new site, I was excited to discover the video The Work shot of our StyleLine shoot from last summer. It's a delicious taste of the many visual delights on Lians' site. Check out the rest at liansjadan.com.

happy holidays, everyone!

My furbabies, Talula and Princeton

I'm sure I'm not the only one, but the lead up to the holidays has been mighty hectic. Between last minute shoots, outings with family, and scrambling to finish buying and wrapping gifts for everyone on my list, this month has flown by. It's hard to believe that Christmas is just a few days away! I'm ready for some relaxing time off to spend with my loved ones, and so excited for the new year, which is sure to bring with it exciting opportunities and lots of new adventures. Until then, have a safe and happy holiday season, everyone!!!
