This year, I had the opportunity to cover CaloSpa's Open House, an annual event where Drs. Calobrace and Mizuguchi invite all their clients and friends alike for a special evening that includes delectable hors d'oeuvres, energetic music along with specials on the different products and services offered. Without a doubt, this event has to be one of most energetic ones I've covered to date. Everyone was there to feel beautiful, as it was reflected in all the radiant smiles I saw that evening.
Earlier this summer I collaborated with a team that produced some of the best work from each us, it was titled "Crimson Winds" (http://bit.ly/1O7SCtQ). We since then, re-united to bring to life yet another collaboration, this time with a different aesthetic and energy, we call it "Unjaded Elegance".
Upon initially meeting, Kristina and I had talked about collaborating with a common vision of infusing fashion and fine portraiture. We scouted Art Sanctuary which happened to have this chaise, we knew immediately it would be perfect for our shoot with it's vintage character and rich tones, the same tones that are subtly blended into my backdrop. We set a date, rounded up the team and made this happen. This truly reflects everyone's work and positive energy that day. More details on that will come in the blog, but for now, enjoy.
