EXCLUSIVE vintage boutique COMING SOON!

Hello dear people!!! Happy Holidays and I hope all is well!!!

I have intensely been researching and building my business plan this month for my future vintage boutique! With my eye and vision, and my passionate desire to servicing customers in the name of fashion, IT IS ONLY RIGHT!! I’ve made it official to launch my company in May 2013!! I’m definitely starting off small and letting it evolve from there, all while still exceeding expectations!! My goal is to really engage with my customers and provide the exclusive vintage wear, and retro wear for the hottest trendsetters and inspiring all over the globe, inspired by yours truly..ME! =)

My online store will be catered to expressive hipsters/fashionistas from ages 15-25! Other ages are always welcomed as well!! Although the clothes will be catered to women, I will have plenty of unisex treasures for the men out there who want to also own the exclusive merchandise I will carry!

 

From hunting city to city for top notch unique wear, hand making accessories and setting up mind-boggling fashion photoshoots, preparing will be a real hoot!!! Of course I will keep you all updated with my progress!!

Now for the name!!! I most definitely have the name, but I’m saving that juicy info for another random time!!  lol

 

Besides that… That’s about it… if you have any idea who’d be a great company to receive business/retail supplies from, don’t hesitate to drop that info below!!!

 

 

Thank you!!

Pink Boots and a Payphone/Quitting Photography???

Hello hello hellooooo!!! How are you guys!!?

I have a couple awesome updates for you guys!!!!

Well first is first….. Photography…. Lately I seriously felt like I was losing my passion!! Can you believe it!??? But I had a hard look within myself and I realized it wasn’t fashion photography itself, it was just the business side to it! As an entrepreneur reflecting on my personal goals, I didn’t get the fulfillment I needed as a professional photographer. Yes I will always practice photography, but I believe entering fashion photography was my calling onto something BIGGER and besides I can most def use my photography skills and talent and add them to my store boutique!!!! ;D

 

I’m now researching and studying how to launch my own vintage online boutique!!! YES I said it!! I’m definitely not in a rush here! I want to be sure before I start selling, I understand who I’m selling to and what resources are available to me!!! =)

 

I know I have what it takes to evolve this future company and share the true art in clothing with my fellow fashionistas around the world!!  Whoo hoooo!!  I definitely will keep you guys updated on my progress!

In the meanwhile… omg I haven’t done this in foreveeerrrrrrr!!

WOW! Where do I begin!?

WOOOOW! Where do I begin?? okaaay I know it’s been quite some time!! From my birthday back in July! No excuses really can be accepted, even if I have been totally focused on photography!! But these 3-4 months really have been quite fulfilling and have kept me on my toes!!! UPDATE you ask?? ok, where do I begin!? My FIRST portfolio have come to an end about 1-2 month(s) ago! I’ve met and been able to work with pretty outstanding freelancing talent like models, mua’s, clothing designers and pretty awesome fashion shows like Mercedes-Benz fashion week! Now I’ve been welcomed to shoot with Elite, Wilhelmina and Next agency a week or so ago !! Ooooh not to mention, Kamoy magazine yesterday thought an editorial I did with beautiful model Shalisa West and designers EmpressionZ was beautiful and wants to publish the photos!! Word??? WORD! I’m about to be a published photographer.. Yes! God is working through meeee! =))

So yes!!  Thinking about the journey to this point, there could have been sooo many juicy stories and behind the scene shots to share with you all, BUUUTT, let’s not focus on the could have!! My journey is a LOOOOOONG one, but a  fulfilling one that I’m sure will be full of surprises, lessons learned and plain good ol’ inspirational!!

My goal is too juggle maintaining a blog, doing my thing with photography while moving UP and handling my side job… Writing isn’t an issue really, I looove writing, but with a traditional pen and paper… but I’ll do it, I’ll type for you ALL!! I must share with everyone! My TRUE hope and goal is to INSPIRE and have fun while doing it!! =D

I will still do OOTD as much as I can and share fashion tips and stories, but my main goal with this blog is to share my journey with you from LEANZA!! From fashion, my photography career , personal insights, and whatever I find pretty damn relevant, it’ll be on here!!! Good thing my fashion tips can’t really ever go outdated, so check around if you haven’t, a lot of my advice has changed lives! LOL Daring to be different, I do believe I am the CHANGE! My personal style, especially in my fashion photography have been rejected and always will, but that is simply WONDERFUL!! Because when I do meet people who accept and believe in my work, It is a extreme blessing!! I feel like wooow, yes, there are people who understaaaand!!! I was getting concerned for this world!! lmao But any who, I don’t want to turn this into a full blown essay! haha, I’ll go ahead and post my favorite photos from various shoots I have done to this very point!

I loveee hearing from my people!!! ❤ And ohhhh… would LOVE if you would be able to share the support and LIKE my fan page!

Random Fashion Test shoot!!

Sooo I told myself I wasn’t going to do any work, nor any photo shoot “stuff” during the week of my birthday! (Which is tomorrow by the way 7-11 whoo hoo) But I definitely decided to go ahead and take up some of that good stuff! I have a resort/swimwear shoot tomorrow which I’m really looking forward to with a faith of success!! Along with that I’ve been invited to join Fashion week next weekend in Miami… Yeahh best birthday gifts so FAR!! lol

 

Any who, I decided to do a random test shoot yesterday… There were a couple of spots in my area that intrigued me every time I would cruise by, So I said Hey! Why not test out my vision??? It was pleasant to have a shoot that was absolutely all yours.. well besides sharing the experience with your wonderful model of course!

 

Big shout out to Model Reene Roache! Very intelligent!  She worked with me on last minute basis and it worked out smoothly! And the finish work… not too shabby if I say soo my self! 😉

Hey Folks!!! Wow has it truly been awhile!!? I’ve been away discovering one of my true talents and establishing my style! In what you may ask??? If it isn’t obvious yet, FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY!

 

Oh yes! I’ve decided to jump start my career as a freelancing photographer specializing in Fashion (of course) Swimwear, Beauty, Runway and Entertainers!

For more fyi, Yes I am currently building my portfolio, and working hard day and night to find ways each day to grow not only as a person and photographer, but as a business savvy individual as well!!

 

With this shoot, I’ve been able to work with Fashion Designer, Pluto Vs. Mars! What a blessing, First official project with a designer, and only the BEGINNING!! 😉  I’ll be cleaning up this blog so I can concentrate on producing Behind the scene updates, top portraits, cool people I’ve gotten to work with, quick updates on what I’m wearing and etc! It’ll be fun! and I promise I won’t abandon you beautiful people ever again! lol
