Friends in Red Skinny Jeans and Toggle Coat, the Marais

What I love about photographing two friends together is how often times they seem to fit together like perfect puzzle pieces, complimenting one another. It would make sense that friends who have things in common and that commonality and innate closeness would come out in the photograph, be it through body language, facial expression and similarities in clothing.
However, what I love about photographing teen friends is their effortless style and inquisitive but cool indifference as to why I chose them. And why not? Teens and their style, seem almost unplanned, with their worn out shoes, big bags, skinny jeans and beat up vintage jackets. On an adult, it would work as well as a great outfit but on a teenager, it becomes so much cooler. That's probably b/c when I was a teen all the teens I knew wore Abercrombie and diamond cross necklaces. While these outfits aren't the craziest things I've seen, they are unusual but unaffected, they seem to have just thrown them b/c they were 20 minutes late to meet one another and ran out the door to meet and grab a cafe au lait and go shopping.
In other words, they seem real. Unstyled and they don't really care what you think.
Which makes a great photograph.

Overalls, Paris

I wish I looked this good when wearing overalls. Maybe it's the repettos and nonchalance?

Jackets upon Jackets, Two Different Ways, Marais

Two different ways to wear light jackets, one swing coat style, almost cape like with a super cute black dress and another as a cropped jacket with amazing trousers.

Sara, New York

Sara, one of my good friends, photographed in the foray of another friend's apartment building. Sara is wearing an Urban Outfitters dress, H&M shoes, and a Jewelmint necklace. When I heard that Kate Bosworth was starting an affordable jewelry line that also functioned as a club, I was incredibly skeptical. Skepticism coming out of my ears and the promotional jewelry I saw in Lucky did little to dissuade me. My skepticism draws from how, can paying a flat sum of around thirty dollars a month, result in well made jewelry? Multiple pieces of different types of jewelry are produced, and what if you don't like anything one month? Can you get two the next month, or do you forfeit the money? All that makes me feel rather curious.
However, when I was hanging out with Sara, and then photographing her super cute outfit, I finally got to see Jewelmint jewelry up close. And honestly, from what I saw, I have to say that it's pretty good quality and super cute. I'll eat my words, skepticism dissuaded.

Jeepers Creepers

So...I may or may not have an obsession with creepers? To the point to where it's the only shoes I want to wear and own for the rest of my life.
But, until I own them, here are some photos that I took of them. Oh and some prada platform brogues for good measure.
