calivintage in ballad of magazine

you may remember several months back, i shared some behind-the-scenes instagram shots on location at a little photo shoot. well, the latest issue of ballad of magazine is finally out, and i’m so excited to be able to share the finished product with you. the editorial was shot at the historic claremont resort and hotel nestled in the oakland hills. it’s a massive resort built in 1915, and a pretty iconic monument in the area. sometimes, when i see it looming in the distance, i get a little chill up my spine thinking about “the shining.” but it’s actually quite alive and active with charming tennis courts, a big blue swimming pool, and a very stunning restaurant on huge deck overlooking the bay. and it was the perfect backdrop for our 1960s brigitte bardot-inspired shoot for the “summer of ’69” issue of ballad of. i had a ton of fun sourcing pretty vintage clothes and playing dress up on our lovely model. get the latest issue here.
