B U E N O S * D I A Z // film

My appreciation for vintage thingz has been passed along from my mum and dad who love thrifting on the regular. They collect Hawaiiana and other memorabilia and so I’ve spent a chunk of my childhood perusing thrift stores all over the place.

When my friend Shea Diaz decided to finally make the move from California to Hawai’i and open her quaint little storefront in the Old Waialua Sugar Mill, I was beyond thrilled for her new venture. Hawai’i needs more vintage. There’s so much treasure to be discovered! So much culture!

So if you love hand-picked goodies that’ll take you back in time and give you all the vintage feelz, you have to check out her store BUENOS DIAZ! Open Saturdays 10am-3pm … and stay on her IG as she often posts her gems to be sold directly: @buenosdiazvintage :)

TESTS: Anna Briggs

I mostly love shooting people because of the rich conversations, exchanges, and friendships that can be cultivated in a couple of hours between a piece of glass. It intrigues me and inspires me and these beautiful moments in time are what keep me coming back for more.

My short time spent with Anna Briggs on this particular day stood out amongst other shoots I've done this year. We chose simplicity over complication, nature over things touched by man, and the outcome made my soul happy.

FILM: Lily

My DSLR has been moody lately -- maybe it was Mercury -- or maybe it was just tired of working, and so film has made a comeback in a huge way in my life as of late. 

Film was my foundation, and although I wish I was still in the dark room, I still thoroughly enjoy that state of anticipation waiting for rolls to come in ... 

Here's a couple clicks of Lily <3

'Paradise Found' - Issa de' Mar Summer 2017 Campaign, Maldives

There's nothing better than working with friends.
A beautiful thing happened in the Maldives when a girl's trip turned into a spontaneous campaign shoot ... clear blue water and bikinis are life ... and to be able to create images in tropical destinations alongside my best friends is my life dream realized. :)
