Americana 2012


Hello everyone!

Welcome to my revamped website/blog! Unfortunately, despite all good intentions, it is not running at 100% quite yet and has a few bugs to be worked out — which I suppose is what happens when I choose to move my website the same weekend we move into our new apartment. However, the website has come together enough for me to deliver its debut photoshoot, as promised – unlike our apartment, which will likely remain in a state of boxed chaos for the time being. Special thanks goes out to my BFF Kaeo Kepani for designing and coding this layout for me!

I’ll write again soon (after I recover from this editing all-nighter) about what I intend to do with this blog, but for now, I leave you with my latest project, Americana 2012. Inspired by a combination of¬†last year’s shoot for an American Eagle competition and actually having a few free days during the last couple of weeks, this project began with me telling my stylist friend Tyson Joines, “Let’s do something Americana before the 4th. Maybe with fireworks.” ¬†This project, despite its humble beginnings, was not immune from scheduling conflicts, traffic, and other obstacles, but I’m proud of the talented group of people I had the¬†privilege¬†of working with, and am quite happy with the fruits of our labor.

I hope you all enjoy these images, and I wish you all a Happy Fourth of July!
