I joined the Aces' (COIN's headling) tour again in LA a few weeks ago, for easily one of my favourite dates of the whole run. The Fonda was beautiful, dreamy Riah opened, and the night ended on a sparkling rooftop. Life seems surreal sometimes--that I'm invited into these places. Thank you to anyone who's taken a chance on me. Love, a grateful girl.
This is an actual treat: to photograph for my boyfriend and some of my good friends as they create and chase their dreams.
The Aces were kind enough to bring me on tour for their east coast leg with COIN. They're the first band to take me on tour and I'm so grateful to have gotten to work with them day after day. While my photos have been done for a while, I'm now finally (and chronologically) getting my images on blog posts. First up is New York City! Enjoy!
We began this shoot, planning it to be emo-ish, but then almost immediately afterward, I got obsessed with colour. The result are photos with edgy outfits and bright colours and I'm super proud of how they turned out. Editing has been an area of huge growth for me over the past year and it's exciting to see that tangibly in shoots like this. Shoutout to David Pugh for the lighting and backdrop and co-creative direction. Shoutout to Lauren Penna for makeup. And shoutout to Blake for always being fun to photograph.
I got a new lens filter, so I ran around at night with my favourite boy and played with light and colour. As a fun addition to the photos, I asked Blake to curate a playlist to match the mood of the images. He's one of my favourite roadtrip dj's and I'm excited to share that with you. Enjoy!
My second time shooting Borns in Chicago was again sold out. The fans in the front row had been waiting since 7am (doors opened at 6:30pm) and by the time Borns took the stage at 9:45, the room was electric. The last show was at a small club, so it was rad to see the same songs translated to a giant lit-up production (and also way easier to shoot!). Photos are all for Interscope--enjoy!
