forever yeung fashion blog / bay area natural light beauty portrait photography

For the past few months, I've been helping a friend out with the photography of her newly launched beauty and fashion blog.  We try to have one or two sessions a month to get a lot of content ready for future posts. These shoots are so fun - they're like having a bunch of mini-sessions all in one go!  I welcome the adrenaline rush since we usually meet up early in the AM :)  Having to be creative in sometimes less than ideal shooting conditions (crazy winds, distracting locations, harsh/dynamic lighting) for these shoots is a great educational challenge too.  It's really amazing how different shooting techniques, angles, framing, etc. for standard portrait sessions are from the sessions we do for her blog.  I'm so accustomed to focusing on the face, but having a ton of beauty headshots really don't work in this case.  For these shoots, the focus is actually away from the face and more on finding angles that highlight the outfit, accessories, etc.

Here's a preview for a post coming up sometime towards the end of the summer on her blog.  How summery is this shoot?!  Feel free to say hello to my friend Jenn on her blog (or through your favorite form of social media). Caution: lots of pink and lace upon entering ;)

pascal campion art

No Monday blues for me today.  I am actually so, so, SO excited because I found out recently that one of my favorite illustrators was launching a Kickstarter for a physical compilation of many of his "Sketches of the Day" pieces.  I've spent countless hours drooling over his work and I am over the moon knowing that fans will have the chance to have his art in print form.  EEK!

Here's one of my (and fans') favorites from his sketches, titled "The View".

And sharing the image above because it's still perfect beach weather these days - may head out there this weekend. :)  Pascal did this one earlier this month and shared this thought: "Something that I really like about drawing images like this is...literally imaging the conversations for everyone of the characters."  Love it!

I love the whimsy and nostalgia in his illustrations, perfect (and utterly distracting) for a daydreamer like me. :)  Have a great one, guys!  Feel free to check out his work.
