It's Summer Somewhere

Happy Aloha Saturday!
I'm in a post-surf coma and decided to share some new photos that are also now updated to my website:

Beautiful Mrs. Mahina B. with makeup by Holly S.
So stunning, very unique look, it was a joy photographing her.

I'm in love with this beautiful weather right now, the rain was really starting to depress me, not to mention all of the ridiculous potholes were killing my tires.
Going to be real busy these next couple of weeks but I'm so excited that mama Michal will be visiting me from Maui! Can't wait to see baby Malu again! xoxo

Below the Surface

The Summer of 2006 was spent submerged in Hawaiian salt water.

and luckily we have moments captured in underwater photographs.
Summer is my favorite season. Something about it is magical and oh, so desirable!
4 months, the countdown starts now.

don't hold your breath.

Whut? It's cliche to idolize M-KO for her superior fashion sense?
O well.
I die.

Like, really? Makes me want stringy, ratty blonde hair.

Okay, one more:

..but then again if I were 4'11" and 80 lbs, I'd pull this off too.

Good Night Olsen lovers.

Courtney A. @ Next models

Listening to: Michael Buble. reminds me of California.

On Monday I had the pleasure of working with model, Courtney Ardnt and makeup artist, Lena Hanson. The Devil Wears Prada was streaming in the background while makeup and hair were being created and I was reciting my favorite lines while waiting. "Emilyyyy!" .. "She means you."

We first began shooting at one of my favorite locations on the island (if I told you, I'd have to kill you), but Jaymi Britten knows what's up.

(view more here.)

Within the next hour, we turned on the Golden Globe Awards rerun and turned up the makeup a notch. I got a chance to play with my new lights, and I have to say that PK is a genius for coming up with this ghetto rigg.

a little behind-the-scenes shot.

the final.

Yesterday I started feeling a little under the weather. Not a good way to start the work month.
The waves are supposed to be really big tomorrow, I'll be sure not to be at home in traffic.

2009 is going to be exciting, I can feel it in my bones!!

xoxo B
