ZozoBugBaby has been busy! We were in the studio yesterday shooting two of her new collections.
First up- knitwear basics… these pieces are SO cute & comfy (I mean look at these girls… their faces say it all)! The best part? She is giving away one piece to 2 lucky winners! Head on over to her blog for all the details (but hurry- deadline is Friday!!).
We had so much fun during this shoot :)
And some extra shots of two new models… you’ll be seeing more of these beautiful girls :)

This shoot was just a “Hey- wouldn’t it be fun if we…” conversation that turned into reality. I can’t help but brag on Kim… I am constantly in awe of her creative prowess. I have no idea how she can turn a few dollars of thrift store bin finds into this. She hand-made the crown, the necklace… the amazing dresses. And I am lucky enough to be a part of it… add a couple of my favorite models and it is perfection.

PS… My Define School class opens tomorrow! I would love to have you sign up and spend three weeks together delving into shoots like this, inspiration, the love of the craft. We’ll have weekly lessons and homework, a private FB group to chat in every day and lots of soul searching and fun… see ya there! :)
WORKSHOP UPDATE: Just wanted to let everyone know that travel workshops are on hold for now but for those of you interested (& those that haven’t been able to make it to the places I’ve visited in the past) I am doing an online workshop with The Define School next month. I am REALLY excited about this because we will cover everything that I am passionate about in a three week course that can be done on your time frame (yep- even during those wee hours of the morning that we photographers seem to like so much) and still have plenty of one-on-one time in a private forum. You can find more info on my class here. Registration opens August 27th but if you would like me to send you a reminder, just throw me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will send you an email the day it opens up :) Can’t wait to see you there!!
Every now and then I will throw a roll of film in one of my cameras (grabbed the Holga this go around) and use that for a shoot. The kids like it cause, hey- 12 shots and they are done. And I like it cause, well… 12 shots and I am done ;) Not to mention the gettin’-a-present excitement that comes when you get that white envelope back and you get to see whether you totally nailed it or totally wiped out. Love it.
I also got my dates set for my next round of travel sessions. I will be in L.A., Palm Springs, Phoenix & White Sands the third week of October (& all the places in between, of course) and I still have TWO session openings available. So email me and we can meet up in one of these amazing locals and get a session in! email@example.com

I hope everyone is enjoying our last month of summer. I know we are savoring every bit! There’s been lots going on over here… Spring line lookbooks, Fall ads, a portrait session here and there. On today’s line up- new sessions, travel and one of my favorite designers!
My schedule will be changing up quite a bit once Fall hits so I have redone some things over here… I will be opening up more time slots for smaller jobs (portrait sessions) and less time for big ones (workshops/mentoring). In light of that, I have added a new session to the repertoire. I am really excited about this one as it is exactly what I LOVE to do. It is a shorter session, only one or two kids and gives you everything in one nice bundle. The ‘Devoted Session‘ has been on the hidden menu for a bit now and I have found it has been perfect- we finish while the kids are still excited and having fun (never hear “Are we done yet??”) but I still have plenty of time to get a great variety of shots for me and mom ;) I have also found this session is the perfect length to be able to squeeze into my schedule when I am on the road and visiting your city! Speaking of…
I will be traveling through Southern California, Arizona and New Mexico in October and have several must shoot spots that I would love to set up sessions in if you have kiddos you would like photographed. They would be set up under the Devoted Session. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested :)
And since I can’t share any of the shoots I have been doing lately, I thought I would give you a little sneak peek of some of the accessories I have been using. Juliet does custom designs for me all the time and never fails to create the most perfect pieces. Lucky for you she will recreate them for purchase! Here are just a handful of the goodies that she’s been designing over at Maya’s Curls…
