Between bites of Glaze teriyaki and lemon bars (sounds strange, but it worked), we spotted local photographer Molly DeCoudreaux on the job and snapping away. Her edgy-yet-relaxed style and hot pink lipstick instantly stole our attention.
What she wore: Handmade earrings, gift from friend; byCORPUS shirt, purchased from Urban Outfitters; Just USA black skinny pants, purchased from Therapy; Vintage Avon ring, found at Dolores Park; XXI booties, purchased at Forever 21; Sephora lipstick; Canon Mark III camera, purchased from Calumet.
Molly's beauty picks: Sephora Lip Stains, "They're Real" mascara from Benefit, and Now Solutions Vitamin C cleanser, toner and moisturizer.
"I pickle when I am stressed and actually have free time," said Molly. "I recently made green curry celery pickles, coriander beet pickles, and sauerkraut with cumin pickles."
Seven Questions for Molly:
1. Besides your camera, what are you always packing?
Two kinds of chapstick, a Demitasse spoon/seafood fork for eating on the go, a toothbrush for the same reason, business cards (mine and other people's that I meet on shoots), and a journal.
2. What's your best photography tip?
Spend more time composing -- look at the edges of your frame instead of just the center.
3. What's one thing most people don't know about you?

4. What's your drink of choice?
My summer time drink is a Hendrick's and Soda, while in the winter I definitely go for bourbon.

Leggings as pants (outside the house).
