Los Angeles Lifestyle : Veronica Valencia Collection

In 2013, I had the opportunity to shoot more lifestyle and editorial projects. It’s so refreshing to collaborate with stylists and art directors to bounce ideas off one another to bring a vision to life. When the amazingly talented Veronica Valencia asked me to shoot her new lighting collaboration with Barn Light Electric, I was thrilled.

We had tons of color and style and ideas for this project, all in a beautifully lit downtown loft. I’m not going to lie, it was pretty special. You can view my favorites from the look book below and more of her colorful collection here. I’m definitely eyeing the Lola Soho Pendant.
