A lot of creative types claim they don't enjoy planning, but gathering inspiration is one of the best parts of the pre-production process, I promise. When I'm producing photo shoots, putting together the creative direction is not only fun, but useful: it helps me hone in on a vision, acts as a trigger for new ideas, and provides examples of lighting and composition, which make it much easier to communicate with the client and crew.

I've never considered myself much of a talker--I already know what I think, so I'm much more interested in what other people have to say--but my job as a Stylist means I'm regularly talking to creative types about their businesses, their projects, and their motivation. Which is fascinating. I get to have amazing conversations with entrepreneurs, designers, publicists, retailers, makers, and more, and I love to share their stories. The problem is, I'm a terrible storyteller. Like, horrible.
It’s that time of the year and I’ve got warm weather on the brain! For Spring, I’m obsessed with tropical prints: lush greens and blues with bright coral and tangerine accents, all tempered by contrast-y black and white. Yes, I’m fully aware that orange makes me look like a corpse but I don’t care! I have a whole Elvis-in-Hawaii-meets-downtown-it-girl thing in mind and I’m determined to make it happen. Here’s what’s been swirling around in
1. A sassy key that truly expresses the way I feel when I lose my keys // 2. Finally got around to seeing American Hustle and am now actively stalking Ms. Ross’ Studio 54 style // 3. Loose layers with a heavy dose of gold feels just right // 4. I will let this relatively small yet spa-like bathroom serve as inspiration for a thorough cleaning this weekend. Wish me luck!
