This past weekend, I saw La La Land for the second time. It is such a beautifully written, shot, and edited film with an incredible cast of actors, I needed to experience it twice. In another life, I would have liked to have been a film director, but I think I ultimately like photography and graphic design more, which is why I chose to pursue that. There’s still lots of time, so who knows where life will take me! I’m now singing the entire La La Land soundtrack in my head and looking up every behind the scenes interview and video I can find on YouTube. If you don’t understand the title of this blog post, you need to watch the movie STAT.
This yellow dress from Act Three Apparel reminded me of the “Another day of sun” opening scene of La La Land, even though the weather has been more rainy than sunny lately. I can’t wait until spring because I know the flowers are going to have such a vibrant bloom this season with all the rain we’ve had!
Vince has a very unique way of laying out his images in a compartmentalized collage-like manner — even sometimes leaving in his film negative borders — and integrating phrases and imagery to create an old film still nostalgic feel. I love how he captures details that others may overlook or even try to hide — like the binder clips on the garments in the first image or how he doesn’t Photoshop out the background in the second image. The photos are perfectly imperfect. They are like fragments of dreams. View / read more about the editorial in VSCO Magazine here and see behind the scenes here.
You may remember me alluding to my mom and I writing an ebook this past year in previous blog posts. The ebook is called Nature Looks Good on You, was written for Drifter Organics and was released last month. This was the longest, most difficult project I’ve ever worked on, so I wanted to take a breather before I shared it here. It has over 100 pages and close to 100 illustrations. It has everything we’ve ever learned about natural beauty, nutrition, and overall wellness and has been reviewed by a cosmetic chemist to double check all our facts.
A HUGE thank you to Tierney for the ebook layout and Robin for copy editing the ebook.
We also made a trailer video which I’m really proud of!
