End of Summer, beginning of Fall

I am still loving summer. It’s not over dammit. Not until the end of September. I’m not one of those people because we have a long holiday weekend and my child starts school it means it’s we put on our coats. Savoring each sunny day is what’s up. Then sweater season begins and that just makes it for a great ending. I’ve been plugging along, creating, sourcing and shooting with fellow creatives most of the year. I want to share the latest with you.

Happy Belated 2018!

Yes, it’s been a while. Blame it on instagram. With the ever evolving social medias to promote one’s work sadly the personal blog post is the one that I neglect the most. We are living in a fast paced media culture where images are being produced at breakneck speed for our micro industries to consume, to inspire us and keep the engine greased. All the while we are promoting our work and adding value. It’s an open market made up of images, words and algorithms. The new normal. That said, here is some work from last year that I am proud to have worked on. Happy Spring, the sun finally shines bright in our city.

Hask Beauty

One of the downsides of having an agency is I post less on my blog. I’m making an effort to have a routine since there are so many images to share. Like this one for the Hask Beauty campaign I styled shot by Matthew Zucker. I love pairing botanicals with products!
