Interview with Naomi Diaz: Fashion Photographer

Naomi <3
Hey guys! I found pictures by Naomi Diaz on DeviantART (here) and I fell in love with her work! She takes amazing fashion photographs and was kind enough to let me interview her. Here is the interview:
1. When did you start being interested in fashion photography?
I started to become interested in fashion photography when in 2008 when I was 19. I've always loved fashion and admired fashion ads you'd see in magazines but I didn't have a desire to try and do photography itself until I was 19.
2. What is your favorite photograph you have ever taken?

Ooh that's so hard to choose my favorite photograph as I have a few. Right now I think my most recent favorite photo though is titled "Wine" it's very simple and jus has the model sitting at a with a glass of wine. It's more of a classic portrait then a fashion photograph. 
3. What is the best part about fashion photography?
For me the best part of fashion photography is planning out the shoot and finding other creative people people to work with. 
4. Do you ever plan of becoming a photography for a runway show, fashion magazine, etc.?
I've had opportunities to shoot for fashion shows but that honestly doesn't interest me very much. I would love to be a photographer for a fashion magazine and I'm sure it'd be possible one day. Perhaps one day when my children are then I'd have more time to dedicate to photography and promoting myself as a photographer and do more elaborate and creative shoots.
5. What five things inspire you to take good photos? 
 I kind of have only 3 things that inspire me to take good photos... One would be seeing other photographers photos and seeing how amazing and beautiful their work is makes me want to create images that are as beautiful as their's. There's just so many photographers out their that inspire me.
Two would be to prove those who doubted me wrong...of course when I first started photography my photos were not good and a few people encouraged me to keep trying but a lot of people really discouraged me and made fun if my work. A few girls who use to make fun of my work have actually recently asked me to take photos of them..which I don't plan on doing.
Three would be getting to see models/clients expressions after seeing their photos. I love how happy they are with the results and how photoshoots are a good self esteem boost for them. Seeing that really inspires me to not only create images I'm happy with but something that the model/client will love as well.
Go and check out the artwork by this amazing photographer! Thanks for doing the interview Naomi! <3

A Little Fishy Project...

I am very sad to say that Talia (taliajoy18) has passed away due to cancer. She was only 13 years old and has been a role model to me for a very long time. My heart goes out to her family and friends... Her YouTube channel and appearance on the Ellen show, as well as becoming a CoverGirl, are only some of the amazing things Talia has accomplished. I would like to spread the word about the #alittle fishyproject that will be going on in honor of this amazing girl. On Friday July 19th, draw a fish on your wrist to show your support for Talia as she "Just kept swimming" on her fight to cancer. Please repost this on your blogs, Twitter pages, Tumblr, Facebooks, etc. so we can help Talia's memory alive. We love you Talia! God bless! <3

Top 5 Summer Beauty Essentials

Top 5 Summer Beauty Essentials

Hey guys! I decided to share with you guys my top 5 beauty essentials for the summer. Over the summer I don't wear lots of makeup but I always wear a little to enhance my natural beauty. :) For my number 1 choice I chose the e.l.f Corrective Concealer (wow I spelled it wrong in the picture). This concealer works great and covers up any blemishes. It is also very light so is perfect for summer. 
My 2nd choice was the They're Real mascara from Benefit. This looks great by itself so you don't even have to wear eyeshadow if you don't want to! 
My third choice is my fav chapstick. You gotta protect those lips in the sun! 
My fourth choice is an e.l.f eyeshadow palette. I love having so many colors to choose from! 
Lastly, I think it is important to have cute toe and finger nails. Essie is the brand to use! Their color choices are perfect for summer! <3

Day To Night Sundress Idea

Day To Night

Hey everyone! This collage is an idea on how to transform your summer sundress from a day to night look! For the daytime, keep it cute with some "natural" makeup, nude lips, sandals and some simple jewelry. To spice up the night, add some hot heels and a leather jacket as well as adding some red lipstick and eyeliner/eyeshadow. Hope you have some ideas!!!!
