Last month I had the pleasure and privilege of working on multiple creative projects, including this #pinterestgoals shoot with local Seattle boutique Rollick! Kelly, the owner, is one of the FUNNIEST people I have ever met, not to mention a brilliant business woman and buyer. Under the art direction of the incredibly talented Allison Wagner and with the help of some local babes, we spent a whirlwind of a day down in Tacoma at GRLS Studio creating some magic. Check out the full team and some of my favorite shots we created!

Last month, I did an BREATHTAKING rooftop photo shoot to celebrate Emma reaching 20k on her Instagram, featuring two AMAZING balloon arrangements from local Confete Party Box. Check them out for your next party or event!
When I think quintessential fall content, of course going to a pumpkin patch is the first thing that comes to mind. This is the second year I've gone with blogger friends to a pumpkin patch to shoot fall content, and it did not disappoint!

NYFW is like Christmas for fashion photographers - they flock from across the country and around the world to capture the most stylish individuals and styles in the fashion game. Gaining access to NYFW can seem daunting, but easier than you think with a little know how.
Time is precious during New York Fashion Week. My days started around 7am, ended around midnight, and were packed with nonstop activities. So part of my strategizing for NYFW was to maximize my time to shoot, edit, and post photos during the week.
Instead of spending hours on my laptop editing each day, taking away from my valuable shooting/sleeping/travel time, I decided to divide and conquer my editing workflow into two camps: shots I needed to edit on my laptop (blogger and styled shoots), and shots I could edit on-the-go on my iPhone (street style and runway shots).
Despite the rain, street style for New York Fashion Week Spring 2019 was strong than ever. Check out these top looks and how some of the top fashion influencers, models, and celebrities styled these trends!

Packing for NYFW (New York Fashion Week) is by no means easy. As I will be working, running around the city for shoots and shows, comfort and convenience is my number one priority while packing. I am primarily going to capture other peoples' style, however, that doesn't mean I can't be stylish while I'm doing it! So today I'm going to talk a little about fashion, and my top five essentials that are coming with me to NYFW this month.
