Summer lovin’ calls for pretty patterns on babydoll dresses and pops of pink on our puckers. Pops of pink on our puckers. Pops of pink on our puckers. Say that 5 times fast. Another busy week ahead with some much needed catch up with friends time and some fun parties thrown in here and there. I’m surprised at how regularly I’ve been posting on here (it’s called pictures on back up baby). But I really do try. There is nothing more relaxing at the end of the day than playing my favorite music while I go through pictures and get nostalgic over the weeks past. Funny because these pictures were taken in NYC, but back when I had no idea that I was even going to be moving to NYC permanently for a new job. A month ago, the thoughts of moving to NYC were definitely in my head, but the idea was never so mountainous or urgent. I’m glad that something did eventually bring me here sooner than later. Sometimes taking that big leap is the one thing you got to do so that everything else falls into place, however bumpy or seamless that road may be.

Volcom // Cruel Summer June E-book

July 29, 2013
I realized that I never got around to posting some of the June E-book images that I shot for Volcom featuring my sister Natalie Suarez and some of the brand’s new summer product. This is an ongoing project for my sister and I this year and it always pushes us to try something new on all aspects of creative direction. We collaborate on theme ideas, styling, hair, make-up and location. And I’m always pushing myself as a photographer to capture a part of Nat that I’ve never had the chance to before. And Natalie has been developing all sorts of characters and emotions in front of the camera. These are just a few of my faves! Check out the rest on Natalie’s blog here
We just finished shooting the July E-book this past weekend, and it will be launching soon. Can’t wait for you guys to see what we busted out this time around 🙂

Turn On The Lights

Oh hello from my couch this fine Sunday afternoon in Williamsburg. Shot this look real quick last weekend after putting my Ikea furniture and going out with Nat and Tanya for a celebratory food fix in the new hood. The one thing I really loved about Philly is the fantastic street art. There’s a whole lot of that here in the burg, so I’m glad that my eyes don’t have to miss out on that. Been completely enjoying exploring my neighborhood. So many food options, shops and cool bars to check out! It’s endless. And the boys are quite cute here 🙂 Still on the hunt for a big old vintage-style mirror, a colorful Turkish rug and some other bits and bobs to help transform my room into the magical gypsy wonderland it’s always striven to be. Almost gave in and purchased a rusty tin letter “D” at the flea market today to tack onto my wall, but put it back down to think it over one more week.

Skeleton Dance

Skeleton, you are my friend 
But you are made of bone 
And you have got no flesh and blood 
Running through you to help protect the bone 
Skeleton, we have been friends for years 
And you have seen me through some trials 
And tribulations and some tears 
But everybody thinks I’m weird 
And I should have known that it wouldn’t be long 
Until you, you’ve got me standing in an awkward position 
With unwanted attention and a need for explanation 
And it’s not that I’m letting go of you 
But I don’t know what to do 
Skeleton, we are so close 
But you have got no body 
So, why do you insist on wearing clothes? 
Does anyone else remember this song, Skeleton by Kate Nash? Kate Nash was my jam my junior year of college. I couldn’t have gone through all that studying with her, and the thought of my skeleton friend to keep me company.

You guuuuuyyssss. TGIF. What a week!! Working on some cool projects at work right now, can’t wait to get the ball rolling on them . . . but man do I need this weekend to rejuvenate.
