This week, we’re nearing the end of our MAKE YOUR MARK voting period and we couldn’t be more excited.

Sarah “Mac” McGowan (of this here Mac+Cob Business Therapy) and Helen Kim (The Think Farm) have been collaborating since they met just a few years ago. Maybe there was something in the air or more probably it was the coffee — but either way, some kind of magical synergy was formed Continue reading “Magic Sauce: We Apply It Liberally”

Photo Shoots

If I ever find myself at a photo shoot, like at the one for Jan Davidson Skin Care with photographer Jess Koehler, it’s behind the scenes.

I love art directing at photo shoots. It’s such a collaborative process and, when done right, you get to spend a hyper-productive day empowering someone to show the twinkle and uniqueness within. Recently, there was a shoot at The Farm and I found myself in front of the camera, of all places. It’s not a place I naturally enjoy but, thanks to the talents of make-up artist Chantal Moore and Sarah McGowan and Jake Rushing of Mac + Cob, I got to be the lucky beneficiary of the magic that happens when people who kick ass at their craft and at loving people come together. Adding to the warm fuzzies and beauty of the day was Steve Melendrez of The Living Room with additional furnishings for the space. He is a lovely human being with immaculate taste, as evidenced by his store.

Sarah and Jake took the photos as part of the Silver Lake Chamber of Commerce member profile project as well as for The Think Farm’s upcoming marketing campaign. Two birds. One stone. Keep an eye out for both things in the coming weeks/months.

Here are some images from my day of glamour. Thanks to Janice the intern for documenting!

Lessons learned? Being a model IS hard work. You can’t not look good without this beauty posse. I wish they were here with me now!
