And, here is Part II. For these shots we went to one of my favorite places on Berkeley campus near Moffitt Library. I loved playing with the shadows and rays of natural light to create these edgy fashion shots. The depth of field in these also adds to the dramatic vibe; my 50mm 1.4 is a real one.
I had the pleasure of getting to shoot Kennedy & Morgan Mason again. The last time we shot, Morgan and Kennedy met me in downtown Oakland we took advantage of all of the graffiti and brick walls in Old Oakland. This time, we ventured into downtown Berkeley to find a good backdrop for their colorful outfits. The exterior of the new BAM/PFA building gave us some interesting looks and, of course, I had to throw in some shots against a white wall. I love how these photos turned out; the definitely captured the vibe I was going for: angular, fashion-y, and just a little bit weird.
Stay tuned for part II.
This is Candice. She is my idol.
I was on a roll over spring break!
Hung out with my bud over break!

Okay. So this is Sylvia. Sylvia was one of my first friends in law school. When I came in late to our first class on the first day of school she texted me that she saved me a seat. Chatting, laughing, and sometimes learning about torts with Sylvia was a highlight of my first semester!Read More
This week I had the honor of meeting the first Latino California Supreme Court Justice, the Honorable Cruz Reynoso. I aspire to become a justice one day, but without trailblazers like him, that idea would never have occurred to me.Read More

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.

Hair is such a mutable feature. It can be cut, dyed, curled, straightened, covered, tied back, left loose. Hair is something that most people don’t think twice about being without.Read More
