Hidden Gems in Austin, Texas

In October 2015, I was commissioned by Complex to shoot blogger Daniela Ramirez (@nanysklozet), while she explored some of Austin's "Hidden Gems". We actually stopped by some of my favorite places, starting at the Hotel San Jose on South Congress! The HOPE outdoor gallery was probably my favorite stop of them all.

I can't tell you how much fun I had on this two-day shoot. I had never been commissioned by any media publication, so this was honestly such an eye-opening experience. Serious shoutout to my mom (awww, I know !) for assisting me with all of my camera and gear equipment — you da real MVP, mom. And also, serious thanks to the Universe about how all of this came together with such immaculate timing!

I am so honored to have shot for such an enormous media publication, considering all of the clients that hire Complex to feature them in their magazine publication (Lana Del Rey, Khloe Kardashian, Justin Bieber, etc;)

Here are just some of my favorite photos from the two-day shoot. These are just a glimpse of everything!
