Isaiah Does Coffee & Chores

Visual Essays, #nephswag

Ok, so Isaiah doesn’t really do coffee, he does hot chocolate. It’s his favorite, and a treat for him. We went down to the local coffee shop in the small town of Snohomish Washington to explore and get some bevies. Before I came, I picked up some swag from Zara Kids in NYC for them to wear. My sister and I went shopping in Seattle and discovered they have kids HUNTER boots. Isaiah loves his boots because they are so

Isaiah Fishes & Does Yard Work

Visual Essays, #nephswag

Isaiah loves Nemo. We took him on a little hike in the mountains outside of Seattle with is mini fishing kit. Funny enough he managed to catch a plastic version of Nemo in a cold mountain lake. After the family trip to the mountains, we came back to do some yard work.

Isaiah Goes Shopping

Visual Essays, #nephswag

I think the kid could drop Magnum if he wanted but I believe Blue Steel will suffice for now. The thing I love about Isaiah is that he has no idea how natural he is in front of the camera. I love shooting kids doing adult things, and Isaiah happened to have a mini shopping cart that his Mommy gave him recently so we went down to the local general store with Little Brother and took him grocery shopping.

Isaiah Visits Central Park

Visual Essays, #nephswag

Meet my ridiculously cute nephew, Isaiah. He’s a quarter Chinese and three quarters Caucasian . He lives in a small town in the suburban countryside of Seattle, Washington. Little did he know at this point he would be photographed as much as he has. It’s become an ongoing personal project of mine to swag him out every time I hop out to Seattle for a visit. This series is from a few years ago when I flew the family out

The Magic of Edie Sedgwick

The Shop, Onken's World

I think every artist needs a little bit of an Edie, Edie Sedgwick that is. It was one of those late-working friday nights, and I decided to pull out the movie Factory Girl. I find a bit of Warhol in myself, in the sense that I love to shoot people by just letting them be themselves. Capture their natural ethos, if that’s what you’d like to call it. The amazing thing about Edie is that she has a natural charisma

DESIGN YOUR LIFE

The Shop, Onken's World

“You must give up the way it is… to have it the way you want it.” In digging through inspirational quotes for a special promo project, I came across this quote, which really resonated with the way I see life, and have seen it over the years. I touched on this idea in my Transitions, Passions and Sacrifices blog post, but I wanted to expand a little and make it a bit more applicable to your lives. It’s so true that there

Visual Essays, Fashion Stories

I love it when I get to collaborate with friends for a cool brand. Jasmine and I got to jet out to a beautiful lake cabin in Pennsylvania with the Burton crew and create some fun images for the Gwen Stefani L.A.M.B. collection. We chilled, and I even cooked up a storm of Tomato Kale baked egg goodness for dinner. Here’s an excerpt from over at Jasmine’s blog on coming up with the concept. Check out the post for her
