There was a time in my life when I’d gladly have wasted four or five hours a day sitting in front of my computer, ogling every personal style blog imaginable—from Adam Gallagher’s I Am Galla to Aimee Song’s Song of Style to Bryanboy to Garance Doré to Hanneli Mustaparta’s Hanneli to Jordan Reid’s Ramshackle Glam […]Read more "The Real Deal: The Style Diplomat’s Liz Dumdum"
Couple of photos from the super fun personal style portrait session that I did for my friend Monique Rosal a few weeks ago. This wasn’t my first time to photograph this girl. I’d shot her some two years ago, at a time when I had had very little experience, and thus had had very little […]Read more "The Couchella Effect: Monique"

I was at a vintage/junk shop in Williamsburg helping a friend look for various curios/bric-à-brac for her redecorating project when I got stuck in a corner with piles and piles of antique chests and was reminded of my mom.

Not a planned shoot or anything—just me taking pictures of my fine homegirls Melanie and Michelle Ediza as they showed me around their new home, also known as New York City. So lucky that my travel dates coincided with the end of their spring term—with school out of their way (for a couple of days, […]Read more "Sisters and the City: Melanie and Michelle"
