Syled "Dorothy" Editorial

Rosa and I recently styled a beautiful shoot with the gorgeous, Marissa Rocco.  Honestly, we didn't plan on it turning into something that resembled a modern day editorial Dorothy but it evolved into it once we got on location.  The mixture of the killer fishtail braids Rosa did and the long grass and winding paths really gives it a distinct Oz vibe!  I hope you all enjoy these...this project is my favorite with Rosa so far!

Nichol - Getting Lost in the Sunflowers

I've been wanting to shoot in the sunflower fields here in South Carolina for years, but I always seem to miss them.  They don't stay at their peak for very long after blooming and the stars just haven't aligned for me....until now.  I'm very lucky to be surrounded by a community of artists and creatives that want to help each other out.  I posted a plea for help in one of my groups and within minutes, I had a shoot set up in a gorgeous private sunflower field in Ridgeville, SC (and a bonus cornfield right next to it!!) for that same day!  I have been wanting to work with Nichol for a while and this was the perfect location to photograph her at.  Thank goodness she was available last minute!  I hope these brighten your day xoxo.  


I had a great experience the other morning working with a local model, Daisy Sanchez.  She really wanted to do something a little more edgy so I thought it would be the perfect time to use the smoke bombs I've been wanting to try for so long!  They were unpredictable, and a little scary at times but so worth it!  We also did some shots at sunrise on Sullivan's Island and this gorgeous field.  Here are some of my faves!
