At the beginning of summer, I was on the quest for a photographer that could snap a few portrait/lifestyle shots of me in my studio. OK, (tape rewinding sound effect), that may sound sort of narcissistic, but I promise you that’s not the case. You see, as at that moment (ok, i confess, still ongoing!) I was in the process of revamping and refreshing my brand + business online, I needed some professional photographs to portray my personality and to communicate who I am. I wanted these images to feel natural, bright and with a hint of…¡color!

Then I thought, it would also be suuuper if besides these, Chris and I got some pictures taken of us together just for the pure fun of it! Plus! it was summer, terrific weather and the perfect excuse to enjoy an ahhhmazing time with my man! Woo!

While in the lookout for a local photographer to take care of the task, somewhere in my research I found not one, but an incredible team of two photographers (drum roll): Anaïs + Dax! A duo with killer skills, an awesome portfolio of work, and just in general, really remarkable people.

First we shot at our place in K-Town, where my mini studio is at. Then, we drove to Culver City and hit some cool murals, and lastly we went to Venice Beach at magic hour. It was golden!

The whole day was such a blast!
