Jordan and the Cherry Blossoms

Hey guys! After a fashion-hiatus, I am back and stronger and more inspired than ever. Winter is over and I’m ready to kick spring into gear with shoot after shoot after shoot. The next few weeks are going to be crazy busy with shoots, so make sure you check this blog often! I wanted to kick off the madness with a shoot that I’ve been planning for weeks. Let me introduce Jordan Michelle!

Jordan and our team of hair/makeup and stylists killed it tonight! I’m so glad we got to rock the cherry blossoms in a fashion forward way. Enough chatter… Let’s get to the goods!

Panda panda.. nom nom!

Animal #3! Sooo excited to shoot our panda today!!! She is SO cute! I have been looking forward to shooting this fluffy, cuddly little bear from the beginning of the series when it was just a little, far-fetched idea in my head. We’ve had a busy weekend working on the series, and the next two are doubled up weekends as well… so you guys have a lot more coming! I’m really loving the flow of the series so far, and how fast we are cranking them out. It makes our future plans for the series seem not so far in the distance. That’s so important and wonderful!

Wendy Li was our model for our cute panda! The minute I saw her, she was immediately casted for panda without any other competition for the spot. She was the first of the series to be cast because she is SO FREAKING CUTE. She’s got such a cute smile, and warm face.. We wanted to make the panda a cute animal, to balance our evil bee. I love how it turned out! The bamboo forest and the green leaves in her hair (Thanks Subreen!) were a perfect touch! As always, great work by my team, Gen & Sub!

Ms. Melissa Knight!

You guys may have remembered my last traditional Korean photoshoot of Kim Knight.. well today, I got her sister, Melissa! I’m glad we were able to make our schedules match up.. She lives in Kansas! & I am moving tomorrow, so…. Anyway, so much fun to go out shooting with this pair. I am an Asian freak, so you know I love to do these shoots. 😉

And then we went to the beach and had a little fun! There are definitely no beaches in Kansas…

Well, I am moving in the morning so you can expect a break from photos for a little bit until I get settled in. But the next thing to look forward to are photos from my upcoming vacation to Niagara Falls! Yesss! Should be a blast! I’ll keep you updated, and of course, will post photos!
