For this Spotlight feature, I wanted to try something different with the photos, which eventually took me hours fiddling around with Photoshop; and who else to ask other than the radiant Chantal of Cocorosa! We spent a beautiful afternoon strolling around Tribeca as we discussed everything from our passion and interests to our cultural differences. I love how comfortable she is in front of a camera and I can imagine how her cheeks may hurt after smiling so much. But leave it to Chantal to surprise me as she pulls off a sweatshirt and sweatpants ensemble nicely. She has an amazing talent with a knack for creating DIY items, especially her tights which has been featured in several fashion publications. For example, the Victor & Rolf for H&M sweatshirt originally had embellishments all over that she spent hours taking it off! Although Chantal plans to travel a bit, I hope that somewhere down the line we will collaborate more.

    delurking myself now! I’ve been following your blog for a while, and your photography is wonderful. it’s amazing you’ve only done it for such a short period of time (since you bought your dslr..? correct me if I’m wrong). I’m still saving up for a dslr; it’s like the dream of my life, haha.

    I hope one day to live in nyc and bump into you by stroke of fate. :)
