A true tomboy at heart, I love that this girl is always up for any adventure. What Melissa? You want to hike for a mile to get to the location? Oh, in sand? Sure, can I carry your bag for you?

With a beautiful smile and spirit like that you will no doubt have a promising road a head of you!

Monday @ 2

What does your Monday at 2pm look like? That was the idea of our photo project for this week. We enlisted the help of family and friends across the globe and armed with camera phones and canons, this is what we came up with….

Photos in order of timezone:

Extensive hours on the beach leads to the mastering of the handstand. Surfers Paradise as a back drop is merely a coincidence. But never the less, a nice touch.

Enjoying my last full day of sun before heading back to Bankok…then back to Canada.

Enjoying an hour of quiet time while Dre naps…candy, people.com and maybe even some facebook creep time.

Today was about enjoying the beautiful sunshine + being outdoors, I just got home from a fun shoot of my niece + nephew and took my Mom’s pup for a run down by our pond.   The ice has been melting on with this incredibly mild winter weather.

 I wake with intent walk farther gather what falls carry it folded in the hollow of my hand—like garbage—like hope I can’t remember the smallest promises.

Monday’s errands.  And there is a lot of them.   Library, bank, post office, gas station, Walgreens and Walmart, with a 4-year-old in tow.  All before picking up Noah from school in 45min?  Yeh, not gonna happen!

We plan to do this project again…so let us know if you’d like to participate!

Leanne Marshall S/S 2012 Collection

Say What?  That’s right!  Full Access to the Leanne Marshall runway show.  Leanne was the winner of Season 5 of Project Runway aaaaaaaaaaaaand grew up in…..Yuba City!  Woot, Woot!   This is her 6th season showing at New York Fashion Week and we were super stoked to photograph the event.

The scene:  Heather Mills Event Space

Hair and Makeup provided by Aveda

The fish bone braid is trending!  Hair was done up in messy fish bone braid updos.

What a marvel Leanne is!  Calmly attending to some last minute touch ups as chaos surrounds her…

Gracious Nathan – Leanne’s right hand man, helping fit shoes

We had one photographer look at us funny as we photographed the swag bags.  Seriously dude?  It’s all in the details…

Previous designers from Project Runway show up to support Leanne.  Suede (Season 5), Carol Hannah (S6), Michael(S8), Mila (S7), A.J.(S8), Kristin(S8) and Ben (S7)

Here is a look at Leanne’s eco-friendly Spring/Summer 2012 Collection.  Her use of bamboo jersey, organic cotton, traditional silk and hemp silk architecturally sculpted made for some serious eye candy!  Dreamy hues of ivory, lavender blue and yellow billowed on the runway before us. Critics are calling it “youthful elegance” and “girlish sophistication”.

Our work here is done!  Thank you Leanne and Nathan!

Who will be eliminated tonight?

America’s Next Top Model casting call is coming to……Yuba City?!!!  Is this a joke?   Are we being Punk’d?  This morning tons of long-legged beauties showed up from all over at Forever 21 to strut their stuff in hopes of a spot on cycle 16.  I wonder if they knew they’d be filling out a 20 page application?!  Here’s a peek at what took place today at our lil’ ol’ Yuba Sutter Mall…

Good Luck Ladies!
