Summer Shots by Lucie Jane

This past week as been a busy one for me! I just got back from Long Beach CA, and have jumped right back into everything!  Kevin and I were asked by Joan from BGF Magazine to be a part of a unique photo shoot for her magazine’s fashion issue, coming out this Fall.  I can’t divulge much about the shoot but it was a joy to be a part of and I can’t wait for the images to be published. Here is a sneak peak shot:

I also just got back some images from another shoot I was a part of, for You and Me boutique and designers Tim and Thom Navarro. Here is my favorite shot:

Stay tuned for more on a very special shoot I was a part of 🙂

LOVELOCK by Lucie Jane

Last Friday night my boyfriend, Kevin Walker, and I attended Lovelock at Honey. It was a fantastic party thrown by Joan Erakit, of BFG magazine, and sponsored by American Apparel.

The theme was “wear white”, and photographers Corey Tenold and Kevin Walker had set up a projection screen of the American flag as a photo-shoot screen: super neat! It was great to chat with Joan about her new magazine, American Apparel promoters Mike and Ashley, as well as catch up with model Ash Walker, after her successful stint modeling in Asia (walking for Dior and Chanel no less!)

Here are some photos from the party!

Summer Parties by Lucie Jane

One of my favorite things about summer in the cities are outdoor parties and events.  The art and music festivals are amazing, and backyard BBQs and friends gatherings make my night.

I also am super excited about my family’s summer trip to San Francisco, and along the West coast.  We will be spending a week around California, and then will spend a week or so traveling to Vegas, the Grand Canyon and a few other touristy locations 🙂  Maybe I’ll even get a chance to see Nkechi while I’m out there!

Here are a few photos of a couple of fun parties I already have attended this summer season!

ARENA Bikini Beach baby: Behind the scenes by Lucie Jane

This past Saturday I had the great pleasure of modeling for the 5th annual ARENA Bikini show! This year’s theme was ARENA Bikini Beach Baby! inspired by the vintage silhouettes of the 40s, 50s and 60s.  I walked for 5 designers: ArielSimone <3, Kelly Ver Duin, Drama Boutique, Nani Nalu, and Emma Berg. I loved working with all the designers and seeing everyone’s beautiful work!

Here are some behind the scene shots:

My Boyfriend, the Artist by Lucie Jane

Through out my blog posts here on the Arielsimone blog and my own page, I have mentioned my boyfriend, Kevin C. Walker, and used some of his photography.  I thought today might be a fun time to actually introduce him as the artist he is and show off more of his work.

Kevin has been involved in photography and videographer work since before I met him three years ago, but lately his work has been getting even more and more refined.

Here is some of his work (with me as the subject) that hasn’t yet been seen here:

Taken after a show I did for The Minnesota Design Diaries and designer Laura Fulk last spring. Loooove the makeup!

Outtake from the shoot I wrote about 2 weeks ago .

Kevin is also an avid videographer and quite talented.  He is currently working on the creative team of a very successful national short film that is being made into a feature.  Check out this post on my blog of a video he shot featuring me!

Kevin is also a talented wedding, event and senior portrait photographer as well as fashion.  Check out his portfolio on his site or his flickr.
