NEW WORK: Essence Magazine March 2014

Here is my new work in the March 2014 issue of Essence Magazine. I love doing the “Style” section opener. There are always so many fun articles of clothing to be inspired by. This shoot was about being inspired by the Spring 2014 runway, and making it wearable using affordable pieces!

LITTLE KNOWN FACT: We shot this back in December of 2013. A lot of people don’t know that magazines shoot 3-4 months ahead of the issue’s release date! And on this day, it was actually raining! (Much like my Elle Magazine shoot).
