Winter Days at Denny Creek

Monday, January 25th, 2016







A couple weekends back Andrea and I adventured out to Denny Creek for some winter wonderland photos. We definitely underestimated the drive, hike and snow, but these pictures made wading through knee-high pow worth it.

I met Andrea through my friend/her boyfriend Bobby, when she modeled in Western Cultured’s Vance Creek shoot. She is just as beautiful inside and out, and smart too (microbiologist). We’ve got a couple concepts in the works for 2016 and I’m very excited for the photo adventures in store.

If you want to go on photo adventures (especially cannabis photo adventures) click here to shoot me a message.

Feeling Garden Glam on #SelfieSunday

Sunday, September 13th, 2015


Feeling glam my last week in the garden thanks to lash extensions by the amazing Val Harvey!

Val is one of my best friends and a talented makeup artist. She’s expanded her beauty knowledge and branched into lash extensions.

These lashes are over a week worn, and they still look flawless. No makeup needed. I seriously wake up and go.

For all my Angelenos looking for effortless beauty, contact Val for lash extensions. Make sure to follow her Insta as she’ll be renting a chair soon!

Fashion, Ferraris and a Political Princess

Monday, September 8th, 2014







I know what you’re thinking, “Political princess? Really Bess?”

No, I’m not that self-absorbed. It’s a nickname given by friends, because they know my passion for politics. I’m attending Reason’s Generation Independent event tomorrow night, so did a little outfit planning.

As a politically active Millennial, I don’t understand why my generation conforms to fashion trends set by our out-of-touch elders. If we want to make changes, let’s stop with the stereotypes. I want to make a name for myself, so why be anyone but my true self? Fashion included.

This post would not have been possible without some help. Thank you Val for letting me borrow this beautiful number. Thank you Adam for taking photos. Lastly, a huge thank you to Tom, my smart, hardworking and incredibly generous friend and business partner. Your car made this shoot! Not sure how an outfit post tops a Ferrari, unless AGE takes off and we charter a Gulfstream…

Outfit deets:

Top and Skirt: BCBG
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Clutch: Vintage
Jacket: Vintage
Sunnies: Ray-Ban
Earrings: Gift from Mendy (asking her the designer)
Ring: Gift from my mom
Lipstick: NARS‘ Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Pop Life

Oh, and The Onion has some great news for conservatives.

Mohawk Makeup’s Makeovers

Thursday, September 4th, 2014





A few months back I helped Val with before and after makeup photos for her portfolio. Val transformed four already lovely ladies into smoking hot sirens (these are her edits).

I shot a little video as well, and sat on it until recently. I’m by no means a video pro, but dabble in Final Cut from time to time (it’s good to know for the nonprofit too).

Just wanted to share the talents of my amazing best friend. Enjoy the video below!

Friend Crush Friday with Anne Marie

Friday, August 29th, 2014





My friend Anne Marie is hot. Smoking hot. Like, I SnapChat or Instagram her, and guys hit me about about my friend hot. Not only is Anne Marie banging, she’s got a badass personality and a heart of gold. It’s why I’m dedicating this Friday to my fine friend Anne Marie.

I met this blonde bombshell at Lil Death two summers ago. Rolling to the party solo, I could relate and took her under my wing. Fast forward to 2014, she’s fresh to LA. Maybe she took a little relocation advice from Mama Byers, went home and packed after her last trip to town.

We spent Sunday skinny dipping, and once golden hour hit, I had to pop a few shots. Sometimes I forget I can take photos. Having a hot friend always helps make for impeccable images.

Welcome to lovely Los Angeles Anne Marie. Can’t wait to see you crush it in California!
