ZAPATA RANCH
ZAPATA RANCH

Zapata Ranch is part of Ranchlands, an agricultural based business that operates large scale cattle and bison ranches in the American West. It is located in Southern Colorado, nestled against the Sangre de Cristo Moutains and hosts ranch vacations that include horseback riding in the Grand Sand Dunes National park and workshops. Anais drove from Los Angeles to Zapata Ranch on a solo trip to attend Pam Houston's writing workshop and learn to ride horses. What stood out beyond the beauty of the place, was the kindness of the all female staff, from wranglers, to managers and shop keepers. 

FAMILY CAMPING IN BIG BEAR
FAMILY CAMPING IN BIG BEAR

Six couples, eight kids and a beautiful camground in Big Bear made for joyful mayhem and celebration of the beginning of summer! While kids rolled and digged in dirt, adults nerded out on car camping equipment and drank cold ones. It felt good to have nowhere to go but our slice of forest and meadow, to be with old and new friends and hear the kids laugh out loud while swinging in hammocks. Worth the not so great nights of sleep under a tent with a toddler and coffee has never tasted better than at sunrise in the quiet mountains. A big big thanks to Jeff Vallee for inviting us to this really fun weekend; already looking forward to the next one!

AN AFTERNOON IN LONG BEACH
AN AFTERNOON IN LONG BEACH

We just recently moved to Long Beach, so we thought it would be fun to explore and create in our new neighborhood with a small group of friends passing time together. A big thanks to Minelli Management for giving us the opportunity to work with Hannah Anderson, Kennedy Daniell and Rocky Repp. Colorful and fun wardrobe styling by Alison Lewis, represented by Art Department. Hair and makeup by our long time friend Nichole Servin, represented by 3Plus Management.

SARA MARLOWE HALL
SARA MARLOWE HALL

Los Angeles based painter Sara Marlowe Hall’s first solo show in her hometown features a series of plaster paintings that transport us through memories of landscapes from travels in Europe, from Menorca to England and returning to California. Her work embodies that feeling that starts with color, one that brings us back to places we’ve been and ones we dream of. Hall achieves lightness with heavy materials, grounding us all the while giving us license to travel to other places through the portal of her paintings.

LOOKING BACK - DYLAN'S FRENCH SUMMER
LOOKING BACK - DYLAN'S FRENCH SUMMER

From Los Angeles to Paris and finally Plouescat, Brittany. Our son's first big trip outside the US to go meet Mamoune, his French grandmother. An eleven hour plane ride, a few cab rides and a train later we made it to the Western part of France and settled in for a few weeks with family. Each day following the next with the slowness of repetition. Croissants for breakfast, beach walks and cold swims, lunch, nap, beach walk, aperitif (happy hour), dinner and wine.

THE LATERALS - CIARA BRAVO
THE LATERALS - CIARA BRAVO

Shot in Los Angeles on a sunny afternoon, Ciara was easy going and gave us a very French Nouvelle Vague vibe. A few weeks before her 24th birthday, she is breaking through as Emily in Cherry, acting alongside actor Tom Holland, an adaptation of the gritty book by Nico Walker, a story of a soldier during the war in Iraq, his life as a drug addict and returning to during the midst of the American opioid epidemic. Her best and rawest performance yet. Styled by Petra Flannery. Hair by Mara Roszak. Makeup by Molly Stern. 

KYLIE
KYLIE

Our first shoot of 2021! Stylist Heather Rest had some beautiful pieces she wanted to feature in a colorful and strong story. Kylie from Photogenics was the perfect choice to model the pieces with elegance and poise. We loved playing with movement in contrast with the structure of the clothing. We also played with color in light to complement the tones of the fabrics.  Stephanie Nicole Smith kept Kylie’s skin glowing while  enhacing her bone structure.  Anna Lyles made Kylie’s hair sleek to keep the play with the lines of the clothing.

THE LATERALS - JAEDEN MARTELL
THE LATERALS - JAEDEN MARTELL

17-year-old Jaeden Martell hit the spotlight running with 2017’s summer hit, IT; a modern remake of the 1980s classic clown-horror-story, originally penned by Stephen King. This isn’t to say he hasn’t been at it for a while. Martell’s the type of actor you’ve seen multiple times before, on the both the big screen and the small, but like most young actors, their ever-changing physicality keeps you from spotting them and relating them to previous roles. Four and a half months into quarantine, Martell met us up on the PCH for a small crew photoshoot,styled by Heather Rest and groomed by Andrea Pezzilo. The soft-spoken Angeleno opened up about what he’s like in real life, and being on the edge of 17. Full interview on The Laterals' website.
