Retouching @ Forever21

I’ve been so busy lately with my new job at Forever 21 HQ in Lincoln Heights! I’m loving it! & after only a few short months I’m now head retoucher for Men’s Flats as well as little Girl’s!

Still correcting and sorting through lots of old edits, but here is some of my work!

Busy Bee

Been very busy lately! Shooting everyday in LA! Yay, so glad I’ve moved here. Opportunities seem to be around every nook and cranny in such a large city with inspiration and creative people everywhere. After 2 non stop weeks of crazy shoots I’ve finally calmed down a bit to focus on editing all of this work! As a photographer, you really only do about maybe 25% shooting, the other time is spent networking and editing….its very tedious work!

here’s a few sneak peeks to get you excited!

Hollywood life

Sorry I haven’t been posting much! Its been a big change moving to Hollywood! Our building has been surprisingly quiet, despite the fact that its literally right off hollywood blvd. I’m in love with all the amenities – the free wifi, the free 24/7 gym, ect. Its really awesome!


We’ve mostly just been getting settled and looking for part time jobs. I was planning on doing cocktail waitressing at night for extra money, but for now I think I’ll just concentrate of photography and if things go well, I wont need to get a part time job!


I did get to go to the Genlux holiday issue party in Beverly Hills. My good hairstylist friend Jonathan Mason picked me up, his agency gave him an invite. I also RSVP’d for the party but since it was just us I went as his “plus one”. It was nice to meet his friends and mingle, I did get togive out a few business cards. It was a fun night out!

20121216-125648.jpgI did shoot a lookbook for TerraAmorĆ© Eco-Couture Bridal Collection – and the designer loved them so much I’m actually shooting more dresses with a pregnant model later this week! Yay for work! Shooting some headshots tomorrow as well. My photography business is doing well!

Trying to get in touchwith more artists(hairstylists, MUA’s, wardrobe stylists, models) in my industry to get new shots for my book! So if you know of anyone – or if you yourself would like to work with me – just shoot me an email! zoemich3lle@me.com


Moving to LA – Update


spent the weekend in LA trying to find an apartment for the big move! I was originally moving into a room in an apartment but that fell through. My boyfriend and I thought we had found a great place in downtown this weekend but now that isn’t going to work out now either! We are staying positive! We found a great prospective place and are possibly going back this week or next weekend to secure the deal! I’ll let you know šŸ˜‰

Finished most of my final selects from recent test shoot with Janna from Desert Models. Would have posted this sooner but spent the weekend having an early Thanksgiving dinner celebration with my man and his family. Here are the finals:
