Personal Branding Shoot
with Girlboss Marrin Costello

Last year I dove myself into Sophia Amoruso's incredible book 'Girlboss' and when I mean dove, I mean, plugged my headphones in and listened to the Audible version from Amazon :) I've never been much into reading, I find my mind wanders too much and I just end up frustrated after ready 15 pages and having no idea what just happened. Plus, it's rare that I have quite alone time (or the patience) to sit and read. So, after making fun of my bestie Maria for always having some strange man speaking to her through the speakers when I jump in the car to head to a shoot, I finally gave Audible a try. Although as of right now, I've only listened to female authors lol I just can't seem to be engaged with male voices haha! sorry dudes. lol I have to say that after discovering Audible and books on tape, I feel so much smarter and informed and it's quite entertaining with the right books. Anyway, after 'reading' this '#Girlboss' I've been nothing but inspired by the way Sophia has single handedly influenced so many women to take charge of their lives and thrive! I wont give out too many details, but EVERY woman - and men you can ready it to - to read this book. like asap. Now, I'm obessed with Girlbosses everywhere! and.. Sophia has a podcast @Girlbossradio you should go check out!

Which leads me to my leading lady of today's blog post, Marrin Costello. When I first met with Marrin, I was so inspired by her drive and fire and talent (obvi) that all I kept thinking was what a little bad ass this chick is! I couldn't help but dream up ways to show off this sassy GirlBoss and her business. With her jewelry line getting tons of buzz lately, she needed some current images reflecting her brand, style & new do (she had recently cut off about 12 inches and went blonde!!). I got to team up with one of my makeup artist favs - Camille Goldston to rock this chick out and my sweet friends at Asiel Design were kind enough to share their killer warehouse with us to shoot in! It was an absolute honor to photograph you girl! I can't wait for the next time and #dontforgettoaccessorize !

UNDRESS with Jennifer Skog

I love photographing women, but what I love more is empowering women & celebrating who we are. So often we are striving to be better than we are in some way, and before you know it, years have passed & we are still reaching for something more! We are women, we work our asses off to be who we are. We are mothers, we are sisters, lovers, educators, dream-makers, protectors, girlbosses... we are brave & beautiufl & we need to celebrate where we are right now in our constant journey to become better.

Up until now, we've only offered out Boudoir Shoots as production styled photo shoots with Hair, Makeup & Wardrobe Styling. I love working and creating magic with my whole team, it truly is where I feel the most happy. But... I want to shoot MORE boudoir and I want to explore other ideas and experiences. Inspired by a photography book I purchased many years ago, 'Women Before 10am" where Veronique Vial photographed some of the world's most beautiful women in their own intimate space, bedheaded & still sleepy, no makeup, messy and real. I have always been so drawn to this idea and the realness of it so I'm adding a new shoot! UNDRESS with me :) Actually it's UNDRESS with Jennifer Skog...

This intimate experience is with just me, Jennifer Skog, and my camera for an hour photo shoot of desire and seduction. Forget about the fuss, letÂ’s stay natural & create raw, seductive, soulful portraits.

Fashion LookBook Shoot
Gypsy Outfitters

The team and I had a wild time photographing for boho chic clothing & accessories brand Gypsy Outfitters with gorgeous model Mylen. Our client's vision was very free spirited, dirty feet and wind in the hair. Together we chose an intimate little cabin in the Santa Cruz Mountains that had the most amazing creek right out the back door. This was our first time working with Stylist Grace Jeramie and OMG she freaking nailed it! We are so grateful to share our vision and can't wait to shoot more fashion elevating the overall brand with our art!

Brand // Jennifer Skog
Styling // Grace Jeramie of My Style & Grace

Here is the second part of Amber & Brad's luxurious seaside vow renewal ceremony on the balcony of Casa Madron's Alexandrite Suite. Following the private ceremony, we headed down to the docks, I simply love how Amber's couture gown she had design in Australia flowed with the wind! The bride and groom and several of their guests traveled from all ove rthe world to celebrate along Amber's Native California Coast.

Photographers // Jennifer Skog & Shannon Paras
