I only had to do a little bit of begging to get this shoot with Whitney. I met Whitney through DAMchic at the beginning of this year and it has been a long steady love affair. This is one sassy gem of a girl. Whitney and I were spending the day together working on a shoot for DAMchic when she was telling me about the concept of shooting with her friends. Instead of the traditional champagne photo they were going to use Mad Dogs and instead of posing in front of their sorority they wanted to shoot with the fraternity they frequent. TOO GOOD! Needless to say I had a blast shooting with Whitney, Alex, Mary Kate, and Kaylee. I wish all of them the best of luck and many more Mad Dogs.

Ronja has been so patient waiting for these photos! They are finally here! Ronja was one of my roommates this past year at Oregon State and it was so fun to live with her. She is one smart cookie. Ronja graduated with a degree in Engineering which is so impressive. I lost track of how many times I saw her pulling long nights at our kitchen table studying things that I couldn’t even begin to comprehend. I wish all the luck in the world to Ronja as she goes back to Germany and becomes a famous engineer.

These photos are a perfect example of why I love studying at Oregon State. The best part about going to a school that has a rich history in agriculture is that we have a ton of really old and beautiful buildings that show off our amazing natural collections. These photos were taken in one of several different greenhouses on campus. Each room has its own habitat and we decided that we should go for the tropical/cactus room. I love shooting with Lydia because she is always down to do anything. I called her up, told her I had some great summer pieces and asked if she could model for me. We had a blast looking at all of the things growing, a lot of which we had never seen before. It is amazing the things you can find in a place you have lived for so long. Thanks OSU College of Agriculture for letting us use your amazing space and thank you Lydia for being amazing and as perfect as always.

Jyssica Yelas where do I even begin. This girl is beyond talented and has a closet that I envy to no end. I have had the pleasure of working with her on DAMchic and she has made it such a blast. I always make sure to be at every shoot she is a part of because I always leave so inspired by her talent. If you are ever needing any style inspiration be sure to check her out on instagram @thestyleopal. You should all start setting Google alerts  for her name now for when she becomes a style icon.

Good luck Jyssica!

This beautiful creature is the lovely Maddie Luecht. I had the pleasure of living with her during my first year at Oregon State University and it was a blast. Maddie is one of those people that always makes you feel so good. Maddie is one of the most outgoing people I have ever met and I have never met anyone who doesn’t have a kind word to say about her. I wish this girl great luck in everything. I am so excited to see what the future has in store for her. I have no doubt in my mind that she will accomplish great things.

Love you Luck.
