It’s been an exciting couple of months around here and it’s been a real challenge to contain my excitement! Especially because I’m really terrible at keeping secrets! First, I was published in a print magazine AND my team and I got the cover. Then, I found out my Dia de los Muertos photos were going to be featured on POPSUGAR as well!
I’ve been familiar with POPSUGAR for a while, especially because they had a really nice subscription box. But, they are so much more! They’re a lifestyle website that “delivers the biggest moments, the hottest trends, and the best tips in entertainment, fashion, beauty, fitness, and food.” How cool is that?
I’m still in love with this Dia de los Muertos shoot and just so thankful for the team of professionals that helped me bring it together. And now to find out that it’s featured on such an amazing website is a dream come true!
See the entire feature here!

PS: There seems to be some confusion about the Grooms Coat. It was inspired by the coat worn by Daniel Craig in the James Bond Movie, Spectre. But, the bones on the coat and tie were lovingly hand painted by me!
