Last month, Erin Celine and I hopped on the train and took a trip up to Los Angeles. Business brought us to the City of Angels, but we of corse managed to have a little bit of fun while we were there as well (Note: If you haven't been to Perch for brunch you must go the next time you find yourself in DTLA, the Sangria is to die for!!!). One of the highlights of the trip was getting to meet the beautiful Olivia Hargrove, the face of Young, Free and Style Obsessed. I had been in contact with Olivia for a while but was never able to lock down a shoot until this trip, and boy am I happy the stars aligned the way they did! Being able to do the shoot with Erin there always makes a huge difference. Olivia's natural beauty was showcased by Erin's killer makeup look which featured a shocking LimeCrime Lipstick that complemented Olivia's pink hair (color by Manic Panic NYC), and this shoot came together perfectly!
We met Olivia in Koreatown, a very urban yet quirky area outside of DTLA, and we hit the streets to explore. We also had fun snaping some shots inside an old hotel turned apartment building that had interesting nooks and cranies everywhere we looked.
One of the final looks Olivia wore was an up-cycled tee shirt from her own collection, Cobra House. She offers lots of up-cycled looks featuring classic band tee's and other vintage pieces made modern with her own special flare. Be sure to check her pieces out, they are amazing!
I am so glad I go the chance to work with Olivia and I look forward to collaborating more with her in the future! And a huge thank you to Erin Celine for making the trip with me and taking on the crazy Amtrak workers on our trip home ;P
Be sure to check back here soon to see my shoot with the always stunning Alexandra Ford!
