Paris Fashion Week 2017

// Xenia of www.xeniaoverdose.com To say that fashion week is crazy is, in the least, a gross understatement. It is by all accounts, insane. It is where thousands of fashion industry insiders flock to every year to scope out the newest trends (and faces). Over the years fashion week has evolved quite a bit, with a lot of the focus shifting to digital media coverage, but it is nevertheless a huge production. I honestly can’t…

Twilight

Today I wanted to post some more photos from the shoot I did earlier in the month. Some were done using window light (my favorite!) and others a mix of natural and artificial light. I try to use natural light whenever possible because, in my opinion, it’s the most beautiful and the most real. It’s real in the sense that skin tones are true as are other colors. Another technique I like to implement is…

Super Eggcited

Sometimes you do something for so long that you forget there’s a stopping point; a final goal. That’s how school has been for me. I’ve been studying for so long that somewhere along the line I became convinced I was going to be here forever. Now that graduation is close and almost certain, it’s extremely odd thinking about not being in school. It’s become such a large part of my life that doing anything else…

Pumpkin Pie

Around this time of the year, when I go home to visit my parents, I usually arrive to an assortment of cakes, pies, cookies and breads spread out all over my kitchen. My mom goes into super-bake mode and I am lucky enough to be chosen as taste-tester. It’s a hard job, but someone has to do it. Anyway, this year I came home to a really delicious pumpkin pie and I was surprised to…

Chef in Blue Cafe

Last weekend I had the immense pleasure of taking some shots for Chef in Blue! They are a cafe and crêperie located in Frisco, Texas and they are serving up crepes, salads, omelettes and sandwiches à la European style. They opened earlier this year and have since filled the veritable crêpe void in the area. They have a wide variety of lunch and dessert crepes, ranging from the quintessential Nutella crêpe to their own Creme de…

Baby, You’re a Firework

On the fourth of July I was lucky enough to be invited to a FC Dallas soccer game by my boyfriend and his family. As usual, I brought my camera along and I’m glad I did; the game was, for lack of a better word, boring, and I kept myself occupied by taking photos. Now don’t get me wrong, I love soccer, but this game in particular just wasn’t very interesting. Lately I have come…

Operation Kindness

Recently I had the pleasure of working with Operation Kindness, a no-kill animal shelter located in Carrollton, Texas. They want to get to the word out about adoption! They have a large variety of cats and dogs at the shelter; all sorts of breeds and sizes and even puppies and kittens. Honestly, it was difficult leaving without an animal in my hands. Anywho, below are some stills from the small spot a friend and I…

Oklahoma!

I was fortunate enough to be asked to tag along on a long weekend trip to Oklahoma recently. Aside from getting some much-needed fresh air, it was nice to get the chance to exercise my nature pitcher-takin’ skills. Again, one of those moments where a wide-angle lens would really come in handy. Perhaps even a telephoto, as we saw some deer in a meadow (literally) and were too far away to get a good shot….
