Home for the holidays photo shoot

I recently styled a holiday photo shoot for The Penny Rose (www.thepennyrose.com) that is being unveiled every day this week. The feature is based on three sisters reuniting for the holiday season inspired by Downton Abbey (which comes back on in January, yah!!). It was such a fun project and a great crew of people to work with. They even let me slip a Sally Esposito Design into the shoot.

Below are some of my favorite pictures from the incredibly talent Nick Chao. Check out The Penny Rose for the full spread!

The Penny Rose

I recently was interviewed by writer Christa Martin. She’s awesome and her blog is really great for insight into beauty products, trends, and fashion. Her scope of coverage extends beyond Santa Cruz and includes San Francisco and New York, which is the perfect way for a local Santa Cruzian to feel connected to the bigger picture.
