As some of you may know, my partner Christine and I opened a vintage and vintage style clothing store recently (check out our carefully curated selection of budget fashion by clicking here www.karmicvintage.storenvy.com).
Next week we will be adding some new items to the site so I headed to Boyle Heights to photograph one of our favorite models, Rosalva Pantoja in several of our new dresses. We had such a great time walking around Boyle Heights trying to find some interesting places to shoot. The people there were super supportive as well. Some young skater kids took one look at Rosalva and yelled out “Is that Marylin? You are gorgeous!” There were many other people that came up to us and expressed their support and comment on how stunning Rosalva looked or how they loved the concept of the shoot. We had a fabulous time and the photographs came out so lovely I couldn’t help but share some of them with you!
Thanks for stopping by the blog everyone! If you have a sec take a moment to like our Facebook page!
Rosalva Pantoja is a make-up artist and model based in Los Angeles. Catch up with her on Instagram here.
