HANA.::.PHOTO.SHOOT.

over the past few months, in the midst of some serious branding, and laying of the foundation for our business, carlie & i have come across a rather important necessity. carlie needs her own identity... not necessarily apart from gabriel.ryan.photographers. but both within & without. being that the name of our business is... well... my name, i understand how it can be confusing to understand what part carlie plays in this whole thing.

her answer: to begin to take on new projects and develop her own identity and brand, as a serious contributor to the gabriel.ryan. brand. so today, carlie.renee. spent some time with one of her greatest friends, miss hana lash.

hana has been there to see carlie through a lot. through the times when life just seems to be nothing but grey and the times when it exudes excitement, through the cliche good times and bad. it only made sense that hana be in our own wedding last july. and when they get the chance to spend time together, i notice carlie's spirit lifted. being around hana fills carlie with a bit more life.

like i said, carlie spent some time today with one of her greatest friends, and during their time, carlie ventured into a new arena, one where she directed a photo shoot sans gabriel.ryan. not only did she shoot all of these images on her own, but she took them thru to the finish, from creation to post production.

i hope you enjoy them as much as i do. i couldn't be more proud of my bride.

and, of course, carlie rocked out on hana's hair & make up for this shoot.

this was one of my favorites from the shoot.







meet hana.

and just a few of her shoes... not all... just a few pairs.



another one of my favorites.



hana's sister brecken, just graduated from fidm, the fashion institute of design and merchandising, and this sun dress is one of her creations.
one of carlie's top picks.






that's a wrap.

i told you she was good. and now you see where the true talent of our business comes from.
