Super stoked to share today’s post with you guys! As a new Strathmore Artist in Residence (for the 2015-2016 season), I had the opportunity to shoot with Jonathon Timmes – an incredible photographer based in the DMV area.
His style is most notably marked by his vibrant and compelling use of light, color, and composition. To see more of his work and/or book a sesh with him, click here. I honestly can’t recommend him enough. Not only is he an incredible artist, he’s super sweet and fun to work with. If his style’s not your cup of tea, no worries. I wrote a post on other fabulous photographers in the DC area that I love to take a look!
All of you obviously know Kimberly Kong the lifestyle blogger, but I want you guys to meet Kimberly Kong the classical pianist & teacher. Many of you already know about my not-so-secret “double life”, but if you’d like to hear me play, check out my Chopin video.
Also, for those of you living in the DMV area, I’ll be performing here quite a bit next year so if you want to hear me live, shoot me a message or tweet me (@sensiblestylist). I’m always happy to hear from you, and I’ll respond as quickly as possible.
In terms of fashion, I’m wearing a stunning gown from BCBG for today’s shoot. I think I scored this piece for $60 or something ridiculous a long while back? Sorry, I can’t remember! It’s been far too long. I always buy my dresses at the BCBG factory outlet though. I’d recommend hitting them up after Christmas, but they’ve closed since then! I’ll have to do a post on where to purchase gorg gowns for less – stay tuned!
On another note, I absolutely LOVE performing in red gowns. It’s, hands down, my fave color to wear on stage. It helps me channel my inner goddess and makes me feel powerful. I just find the share to be extremely fierce. Do you guys have a power color you like wearing? Let me know by leaving a comment below.
