rock star

I found   ten  boxes of these two-sided mirrors on strings, originally from west elm, at savers thrift store on Geneva in Daly City.  I wasn't sure what I'd do with them, but I had a feeling they would be fun in a shoot some day.  The big mirror was acquired at the Alemeny Flea Market.  I think it's from a Hyundai submarine.

This shoot was experimental to see what would happen when I worked with the mirrors.  I found that he tiny square mirrors were reflecting things onto the black of the model's shirt and hair, which I liked. I also thought the mirrors looked interesting when they were out-of-focus.

J. Crew Kids

I've been impressed with the new J. Crew Kids' line. Love the clothes, and the styling in the catalogs is fun and fresh. So, when parents ask me about wardrobe for shoots, I've been recommending they try J. Crew. Well, this girl's mom followed my advice!
