In a world where everything seems overdone to the max, sometimes subtler beauty is the way to go. A clean, natural face is timeless, and we love Monica Baddar’s ability to shoot a model in her most delicate, feminine element. Aside from being less time consuming than a full face of makeup, an understated face is the perfect balance to a bolder clothing choice, like Alexis Ren’s patterned crop jacket and skirt combo. See how Monica captured Alexis, Allison, Diane, Monica, Sydney and Zeda in these gorgeous and natural shots!
Don’t envision yourself cruising down the Pacific Coast Highway with your hair blowing in the wind anytime soon? Not to worry: all your West Coast desires will be fulfilled when you watch this adorably awesome video starring Faith Picozzi and her boyfriend Filip, shot and directed by photographer extraordinaire John Huba. Based in New York and repped by Elyse Connolly, John recently escaped the East Coast chill to warm up by shooting alongside the California coast, and we really can’t blame him. Watch as the real life couple drive down the coastline with the top down in a convertible Mini Cooper, frolic along Venice Beach trying on heart-shaped sunnies, and eat sweet potato french fries by the beach – all while the sweet, melodic voices of The Everly Brothers’s “I Kissed You” play in the background. (Swoon). Just a forewarning, though, we’re already experiencing major FOMO – and we actually live in LA.
Most, if not all, photographers we love have a signature style. Dana Pennington is no exception – his shots stand out for their uniqueness in terms of light and contrast. From serene gardens to edgy alleyways to even a simple room, his backdrops always seem to make for captivating canvases on which our girls stand out. We love the way he illuminates each model in his shots, immediately drawing the audience’s eye on them. Check out some of our favorites below. Thank you, Dana for your awe-inspiring work!
