52 Faces

52 Faces

For those of you keeping up, I have not actually posted for 52 Faces since Week 15 and it is now Week 21, yikes! Honestly, it is really difficult to schedule each shoot both with the difficulty of finding a subject and make sure they show and because my schedule is already tough to work with because of school and now work. Anyway, enough excuses. Here is my plan moving forward:

1. I am removing the "new person" restriction. I can now post repeats which will make my life a lot easier because if someone flakes, I can call in back up. (And no don't worry they won't all be the same people).

2. I might post a little bit late. I will try my best to get fresh portraits up every week, and removing this Sunday deadline will definitely relieve stress because I will have time to edit and really create a great image!

Alright I am out of town this weekend, but starting Week 22 we're back in business!

52 Faces x Week 15

This Friday was Barrister's (Bearister's) Ball, or basically law school prom. I couldn't go because I was arguing in the Ninth Circuit (!!) the next day, but I wan't to celebrate with my friends who will be graduating this year. I took some super cute "prom" pics for them and (of course) took advantage of golden hour. I've been really into backlit golden hour portraits recently... I don't know why but I'm digging it! I've also been testing out some new editing styles so we'll see if they stick.

52 Faces x Week 9

Better late than never! I met Monica at Berkeley Law through the Women of Color Collective. WOCC has been one of my sanctuaries on campus. Being a student in an institution designed to exclude me has been challenging. But, being a part of this group incredible women has spun that challenge into empowerment. Having Monica at the helm, as co-chair, has been so inspiring. She has such a bubbly personality, infectious laugh, and eagerness to love everyone. Monica’s passion and dedication to supporting her people is so obvious in everything she does. Monica shared that she lives for her deliberately chosen family, the people that she has experienced the bounties, joys, challenges, adventures, and deep love with which give her life meaning. And if you are thinking (like I am) how could she get any more awesome, get ready… she has a kitten.

52 Faces x Week 5

Eva Paterson is such a force. I had the honor of hearing her speak at my school, Berkeley Law, last week as part of the United Against White Supremacy symposium that was hosted by the Berkeley Journal of African American Law and Policy, Asian American Law Journal, La Raza Law Journal, and Journal of Middle Eastern and Islamic Law.
