Shooting for ELLE Decor is always so exciting! I’ve been lucky enough to work with them since the very start of my photography career. This time, photographing HGTV’s Christina El Moussa in her Orange County home. Being on camera all the time, I imagined Christina would have needed little direction from me (she’s so stunning!) but she didn’t realize how truly photogenic she was! She opened herself up to my direction which made for such a collaborative experience. Christina’s home in Yorba Linda, OC had a beautifully clean design that focused on neutral tones. While black, white, and gray are the main players in her color palette, she adds lots of sparkle and sparkly elements in the mix (which I obviously loved!) that made for a fun contrast in the shoot. As much as I LOVE reality television, I surprisingly had never seen Christina’s show Flip or Flop. Funny enough, the crew from Entertainment Tonight stopped by our shoot to interview Christina while I took her portraits and the back of my head and body made it to the show! Check out the clip here and see if you can spot me;) I’ll definitely have to check out Flip or Flop now!
