Eisley "Defeatist" Cinemagraph Shoot // Ormond Beach, FL

When I was contacted about making a cinemagraph for Eisley's acoustic version of the song "Defeatist" I, 1.  was really frickin' excited because I love the band Eisley and 2. instantly knew that I needed to have my friend Lauren model for me. And we made the coolest fucking art together.

Even though Irma sucks and forced the other two Paramore shows to get cancelled, flor didn't let that stop them from playin' more music. The day after the Paramore show in Jacksonville, flor decided to stick around in Florida for a bit longer and play another show. + I stuck around as well and documented the whole thing.

A few days ago I met up with Rho again for another cosplay shoot, and this time around she did a genderbend Ash from Pokemon! This was a first time for both of us where we directed (most of the direction was by Rho) and worked on a cosplay music video. I'm stoked on the music video, along with the photos and a cute gif!

Forever feeling so thankful to know and be friends with genuine creatives. Cara & San Frank were kind enough to assist me on a shoot for a cinemagraph music video, so after we shot what I needed we just kept on shooting. Love these two.

Cara + Ashlee // Portrait Session // Ormond Beach, FL

Can't ya tell I really love the color pink? I originally ordered this backdrop to use for promos for a band, but that band broke up and I still wanted to put it to good use. Cara and I had spoke about doing a shoot, and so I thought it would be perfect for us to experiment with it!

Elyza Reinhart // Senior Portrait Session // Orlando, FL

Elyza has been one of my favorite people in existence ever since we started shooting concerts for the same publication a few years ago. We no longer work for that same website, but I'm glad that we've still kept in touch and continue to be friends. She's also a photographer, and a super talented one at that. For her senior portraits, we shot around Harry P. Leu Gardens & Park Ave CD's.
