What a fun and inspiring workshop. Emma of Emma Jane Photography, creator of Couture Clicks, invited photographers to join her and a team of models for a fashion shoot on the Santa Monica Pier. I am grateful to Emma for putting this event together. I was inspired by all the creative poses that my peers suggested. All the photographers were warm, inviting and friendly. We were able to spend a few hours together and we all left the workshop knowing that we made new friends.
The first set of models are Sarah and Darragh. They make such a stunning couple, but they are not a couple. Sarah is happily engaged and Darragh is happily single. *wink wink ladies.
Darragh is an Irish import!They work so well together!This is Natalie…she exudes sexiness. Look at that pout and those “come hither” eyes. The make-up artist did a fantastic job with Natalie by bringing attention to her full lips with a bright pink lipstick.Here is Patrick, who is fun loving and so friendly.I told Darragh to show me the lining of his jacket. Sell me that jacket Darragh! 😛Look how Sarah calmly catches that bouquet!

What better way to spend a beautiful Saturday afternoon in O.C. than to hang out with friends, Vanessa & Harmony. Vanessa was kind enough to let me play dress up with her. I was the make-up artist, fashion stylist, hair stylist AND photographer for the day.
Believe it or not we are on live train tracks! Yes, I don’t know why we did it, but we did. We jumped down the platform and shot on live train tracks with live trains whizzing by! That is Vanessa on the further side of the train tracks, and I’m on the other. However, I must blame Harmony because she pointed out the train platform to shoot on. I just took it one step further….
Vanessa had the feathers put in her hair at a salon. I took it a step further and straightened her hair and braided her hair back to show off the feathers more. Lovely eye make-up don’t you agree? Why, thank you! 😛
I love how clean, crisp and youthful this outfit and make-up is. It totally fits the season. For our next outfit change, we went into a Starbucks and Vanessa changed there. While she was changing I noticed this amazing area and knew I had to take a few shots in this corner. I’m sure the customers didn’t appreciate it, but anything for a shot! 😛
A themed birthday party is fun, but a pirate themed birthday party is even better! For Joseph’s 6th birthday, all guests were encouraged to dress up in pirate attire. There was a bounce house, mexican corn, snow cones and grilled hamburgers.Jonathan loves attention.Captain Hook came to the party to lead the scavenger hunt!Tamarind snow cone. I didn’t get one, but Vanessa said it was great.
