Lately the boys & I have been doing lots of night surfing. There's nothing better than surfing in the dark... you can't see shit, there's creepy 'shark vibes' and it's cold. BUT... there's no one out so you get any wave you want, you can hear other surfers hooting at you in the dark and you can catch glimpses of the moons reflection off the face of the waves. Not to mention, I've had a lot on my mind lately & I can't think of a better distraction. This particular night, Stefan, Christian and myself surfed all alone and it was pure bliss. There was a party on the beach right near us and they were blasting music out. Imagine riding perfect waves in the dark with just your friends while listening to Michael Jackson's 'Billie Jean'. I can't give away where we do this but, there's a certain town legend by the name of 'Skeletor' that works at the Jack in the box down the road. Jack in the box at 1am... mmmmmmm.
Christian poses as we load up the Knight rider.
Stefan starting to amp up
Mexican hat & a swan sweatshirt is all that's needed for midnight surfing.
I loves me some CC photo shoots & I'm so stoked that she asked me to do another one. I always love the vibe that we go for and i feel like this one was even better than the last. Our model Spencer was amazing, the bags were insane, the jewelry stupendous and the day glorious. I leave you with some sample photos from the shoot. Oh, and a scrumptious behind the scenes video shot & edited by the talented, sexy, fragrant, blond and beautiful Christian a.k.a. Chuck Prestonfieldsteinbanger.
We just came off a buttery little shoot for the 7 jeans lookbook. Shot at pier59, both Lexie & Talya from Seven were so awesome and chill... which is really helpful when you're on a four day shoot. Nobody wants to work with a jackass cracka for that long! We shot a ton of looks, listened to lots of Biggie (i even made a special gangsta playlist) and ate like kings. The enchiladas... mmmmm. check some photos out...
me with digi cam. Lexie w/ blackberry, Talya w/laptop and both Lex & Steph on blackberries. welcome to the digital age...
Hobgood loves doing hair.
Our model Anna from Vision. A young Brooke Shields?
Both Talya & Lexie LOVE having their picture taken. 'oh, please, Ashley... take my picture'! That's all I heard everyday.
See? Can you tell how much Lexie wanted her photo taken here?
Tiger... coffee in hand & ready to make her digital magic.
This shoot was all about the hair (wink, wink). Stephanie really approved of this shot.
Our host, Italian Amber w/ her Italian shoes. I mean, she's so obviously Italian.
Just a quick snap of Anna during some down time...
The bummer about this shot is that you can't see her heels. And yes... you're missing out.
The highlight of the week was when Hobgood proposed to Robyn. What a moment captured on film.
