Tiki, Valentines, & Pin Ups Oh My!

     It has definitely been a busy month here in Monterey. Between moving, traveling to Oly for Vday shoots (fly Virgin!), & working through this weekend's shoots it has been nothing short of electric these past few weeks.

      Beautiful chaos may be  the best description!

In Oly I was lucky enough to do a Tiki set with Golightly's hair & makeup and this beautiful girl & her awesome Eukele- whose name escapes me at the moment.

Upon return I was lucky enough to shoot a super classic Pin Up set with Lady Luxe MUAH and this lovely client.

So all in all, a productive and progressive week- and just a heads up if you are local to the area I am running a $100 mini- boudie set with hair & mua and a selection of edited photos. Email me at

Have a rad day!

Hot Pink Eye Makeup Vol. 1

Just wanted to share my first eye- make up experiment with y'all!

I'm using the Shany 120 palette and I just took this on my phone real quick and did a light edit, I think next time I ll just put on face makeup too so I dont have to edit my skin :) But I was really impressed with how vivid the colors are. The one thing I am not super impressed with is that there is no color name or number as a reference so if I wanted to point out which colors they were I couldn't really do that without taking a pic of the eye makeup palette and using arrows to point them out LOL.

Oh well!

Here are a few more pics from my make up trial- Next time around I ll actually set up my lights and do my hair etc to show you the makeup in full effect. Thanks for popping by & happy  Monday!

California Lov

Here I am !

Started the New Years off right in a the state of California! It has surely been a few weeks of grueling moving, cleaning, goodbyes, and the search for the perfect home. But we made it! After a 14 hour drive on New Years eve we happily arrived in Santa Cruz where Dave & I resided for a week or so before moving into a place in Monterey. Anyways, things have been good here with Painted Lady- wrapped up the holiday shoots with a calendar shoot for a lady whose hubby is in the Navy. Definitely the biggest project I've worked on in a bit! Here' one of my fave's from her shoot
Then today I finally had a moment to play around with some picture time for myself and I took this little cutie self portrait! Hope ya dig :)

Anyways, if you are any friends are in the SF, Monterey, Salinas, Seattle, Portland, Olympia or Tampa area you should follow me on FB by 'Liking' my page so you can keep up on my travel dates and specials! Here's my Facebook so you can see a ton more work there. Anyways, have a rad day!

Halfway Mark

So here we are already wrapped in the cozy arms of December! Merely weeks away from Christmas and a New Year!

The Holiday Pin Up Sessions are booked out and ready to be wrapped up cuter than the perfect gift! Here's my most recent from the holiday pin ups!

It's been a complete blast working with so many beautiful women from all walks of life. All doing this for themselves, and a few doing this for their hubby's! I've gotten quite a tickle from women coming up with elaborate stories to tell their hubbies so we can shoot in private, and then getting their first pic and spilling the beans! Too cute!

So whats up next? Ta- Ta to Oly! Special will be running Dec 26th through 29th before we move to Cali! $85 includes your hair and makeup as well as a 45 minute session and 3 edited photos. Shoots will be at mi casa, as usual!

Hope everyone has a fab holiday & spends it with the ones they love!
