editorial shoot. | muir woods.| throwback.

I wanted to bring back this editorial shoot I did with Helen Hosain.  She’s an amazing and talented photographer and the photos below are proof. I will forever remember this day because of the mini adventure through the woods while dragging my huge traincase, having the grilled cheese sammich at the muir woods cafe [yum-oh], going off trail down a mini cliff and just having a ton of good ole fun.  By the way, isn’t Frances gorg?! Hope to work with Helen again soon!

Finally. I have the time to post some photos from Dianne & Jaymar’s (#rnw54) wedding! You can check out their TWO-PART feature on Encarnacion Photography’s website/blog, here. I was a bridesmaid & the makeup artist this day, and I would be lying if I said it wasn’t exhausting, but I loved every minute of every moment starting a 5:30am (SHARP). Dianne & Jaymar, if you’re reading this..I can’t thank you enough for letting me be a part of this special day of love! I love you both, fam!
