Secret Garden







I have long wanted a kimono. For some reason, I just never got around to it. Once I got this beautiful baby in and saw how amazing it was, I knew I wanted to shoot it in a Japanese garden. The lush greens and tranquility would not only be a great escape for my everyday LA City life, but also a great backdrop. On an added bonus, Scott and I could make a little date day out of it. I had already gone to the Huntington Library, so I did a little Google research and found the Descanso Gardens. Once a family estate, it has now been turned into a botanical garden for all to enjoy. Descanso means "place of rest" in Spanish, and by all accounts it was just that. Due to the atrocious lack of ran LA has been receiving, there are many dry patches and brown seems to have creeped in where it was once a flourishing green.  Despite this, Descanso provides a brief escape from the hustle and bustle from the surrounding metropolis.

  1. I imagine that you have an ungodly amount of messages in your Facebook inbox, so I figured I'd just leave a comment on your blog. :)

    I'm a 5'4 college student & part time model (I do catalog work for local boutiques, so I guess you could call that "part time"...maybe?) I truly admire your ambition & determination to have gotten as far as you have in the business. Your inner beauty & power really shows in your work!

    1. Thank you so much! Modeling is a tough market for us shorties, but you have to stay strong and be appreciative of the jobs you get. It is easy to focus on the negatives, and it takes work to find the positives. :)

    1. I actually am planning on writing on blog post on some of these. :) Foundation would have to be Naked by Urban Decay, Mac Face and Body, or Makeup Forever HD Foundation. Beauty products would be Freeman Facial Polishing Mask, Charcoal & Black Sugar and OLE HENRIKSEN Truth Serum® Vitamin C Collagen Booster. Perfume is for sure is Japanese Cherry Blossom from Bath and Body works.
