(above) Chelsea contacted me after seeing Sirens on Jettygirl, and I was stoked to have the chance to go up to San Clemente to photograph her this week. As you can see by her many, many trophies, she is quite an accomplished surfer at just 16 years old! One thing I noticed is that EVERY SINGLE trophy she has ever been awarded has a boy on it. No girls on trophies. How'dya like them apples?
(below) While visiting with my friends Cher and Steve this past weekend, they were kind enough to let me photograph their house. I love how natural, unique and fun their environment is - it captures their personalities so well!
These images have me especially excited because I've been trying to capture more details to incorporate into Sirens and I think at least one of these will work well. I photographed Cher previously, and will again, and I think these detail shots will compliment her portraits nicely by telling the full story of how integrated surfing is into her life.
