NOTES OF MEMORY…(father’s day)

click to view…Notes of Memory

“Notes of Memory” is a short film by Michelle Peerali featuring our very own Stefanie Wood, Alli Cripe, Dakota Bottcher, Adesuwa Aighewi, and Leore Hayon as they share really moving accounts of their favorite scent memory on  Really well done…and it got me thinking of the scents that mean the most to me.

As a child, my dad was never the warm, loving type.  He was stoic, solemn, the stern provider, a military man.  He was the head of the household with strict and sometimes unreasonable rules, but there was never any doubt that he loved us.  I always knew that he did…he was just hell bent on carving out a good life for his family.  He rarely picked me up, but when he did the smell of his $4 BRUT Cologne from the drug store stuck to my clothes for hours.  When he did, I knew I was safe.

Now, I’m a fully developed human, and he’s a different man.  He’s… jolly even.  He and my mom travel the world, organize medical missions, and plant community gardens in their homeland.  He loves a nice red wine and enjoys hiking, as well as an occasional secret-back-alley cigarette on special occasions (The jig’s up, Dad. We know. ;) )  He’s a different man than the man I knew growing up, but two things have remained:  He still loves his family more than anything, and he still wears $4 BRUT Cologne from the drug store.  Some things never change.

Happy Father’s Day, DAD!  You’re really the best dad ever. – M-

Hey friends!!! It’s the agency’s 11th year in business as a steadily growing and expanding mainstay in the industry.  We’ve recently moved into some extremely stylish digs at the BLACKWELDER Creative Campus on La Cienega, added 2 new ass-kickers to run our Commercial Division (Anna and Amy, you’re the best!!), and at the moment our roster is pretty boss and is continuing to grow into this super solid collection of babes.  Yet, even though we’re on to a bigger, better, and brighter future, we’ll always keep it right and tight with the family vibes, and I think that’s what makes Photogenics such a special thing.

So, to the New Blood: We’re super excited to welcome you to the Photogenics Fam.  We’re a team, we work together, and we’re about to KILL it!!! #FistBump – M –

LOOK.BOOK.LOVE (Vol.4)…For Love + Lemons

It’s Monday. BLEH. Really…The worst day of the week, but while so many people out there are grinning and bearing through the day, begrudgingly going through the motions, I get to come to work and look at pretty photos all day and then go make music when I’m done.  #sorrynotsorry.  Not a bad way to start off another week, and for that I am tremendously grateful.  There’s something to be said about getting to do the things you love for a living, so to everyone reading this: We have to dream big. Settling is not an option. Our sanity depends on it…and so on and so forth.

It’s a LOOK.BOOK.LOVE kind of day, and I’ve decided to feature our babe-of-all-babes, Daria P. in “Cry Baby” For Love and Lemons Summer ’13 shot by Zoey Grossman.  Another on-point concept styled by Nasty Gal senior stylist and Purse’n Boots blogger, Ashley Glorioso.  …and damn, girl. THOSE LIPS!!! I want it all.

So here we are with another Monday under our belts.  Let’s just brace ourselves for the week ahead and be eternally grateful for the good, shall we? What other way is there? -M-

BABE ALERT!!!…Virginia

Suuuuuuuup….Mel here.  Hope you all loved the last issue of photoGENICSmag as much as I do.  A big thank you to the home-slice-tenderoni, Nicci Arone, for filling in while I was off getting inspired in Indonesia.  I’m back and feeling pumped about pretty much everything except for my F’d up sleep schedule.  So last night in a desperate attempt to get back on track, I took an Ambien and had the most gnarly dreams which were scary but also injected me with this weird creative current.  Basically, I’m feeling pretty unstoppable at this point, and I’m ready to pump out some great content and a radical Issue No.6.  But more on that later.

Today, I want to introduce you to the lovely Virginia.  This Dutch beauty just arrived and is ready for some work/play.  Welcome to LA, Virginia!!!
