Kate by Bert Stern

I've posted photos of Kate Moss before but I wanted to share this photo I stumbled upon of Kate by photographer Bert Stern. Bert Stern is most widely known for his body of work, The Last Sitting. The Last Sitting is a collection of over 2000 photographs taken in a three day span of Marilyn Monroe 6 weeks before her untimely death. The images he created then have become such an integrated part of our visual history. Now 50 years later Mr. Stern is in his early 80's and still producing beautiful work. This photo of Kate definitely has that same signature quality of the portraits he took back in the 60's.

Happy 13th Birthday Spoon!

That is one of Sadie's many many nicknames! I can't believe my sweet little Sadie is 13, she is still such a puppy! I love her with all my heart and our lives just wouldn't be complete without her....Tomorrow a birthday portrait! (I took this picture a couple of weeks ago and it was too cute not to post. I think she was trying to tell me something, maybe stop taking so many pictures of me?!)

Alexander McQueen

Alexander McQueen was an absolute artistic genius. The pieces that he created for his collections were individual works of art. His masterful manipulation of fabrics showed the thoughts of his otherwordly imagination come to life. The vibrant and fluid colors of his fabrics and his exquisite attention to detail are extraordinary. His presence and his creations will be deeply missed and it is sad to say goodbye to a such a talented artist at such a young age. Here are a few images from his Spring 2010 ready-to-wear collection that I found especially inspiring.

Riding the Bus

These are some photos I did of a bus series I was working on a little while back. Some taken on the bus and some out the window of the bus or at the bus stop. I used to ride the bus for 1-2 hours everyday and these were some of the people that I saw daily. All these pictures were taken with a Lomo L-CA.

Photographer Jessica Antola

I have really been enjoying Jessica Antola's photography. I posted one of her photograph's earlier and wanted to share a few more images of her work. I love the rich colors in her photos and the faraway places she captures. Check out more of her work here.

Faye Toogood

I am completely captivated by these interior shots from Studio Toogood styled by Faye Toogood. Faye Toogood was the Senior Stylist for one of my all time favorite magazines, The World of Interiors. I absolutely love the intense saturation of colors and of course my love of old walls with layers of colors and character. Check out the website for more gorgeous inspiration!

Belinda Baggs and Photographer Dane Peterson

I am obsessed with this gorgeous photo of the awesome surfer, Belinda Baggs taken by her equally talented husband, Dane Peterson. The first time I heard about the couple was last summer when I was browsing some magazines and came across a beautiful story about them. I love everything about this photo, from the color of the water, to her surfing style, to the composition, it's perfection! She looks like she is surfing the wave without a board! I'm not sure which is the star here Belinda Baggs or the photographer, to me it is the best of both! Thank you sfgirlbybay and choka for introducing this photo to me!
