BEHIND THE BLOG: ISTIANA BESTARI

This past weekend I got the chance to meet up with blogger and film maker Istiana Bestari (@blogistiana). You can find her stuff on her YouTube channel here and see if her material grabs your interest! She's all about lifestyle, food, travel, music, vlog, beauty and more. Check her out!

Istiana has wonderful combo of both look and personality (she really shows it in her videos) and I wanted to collaborate with her on a shoot for Portrait III and potential photos for our blogs. I'll be trying out a bunch of new locations and ideas for the next instalment on my website. She was sweet enough to let me set up a quick little portrait shoot at her place, while I also organized to meet at a nice hole-in-the-wall cafe, Boxcar Social, on Queen Street West. Shout out to them for letting us shoot in the morning before the rush. They have some of the nicest baristas and their cortado was amazing! You can view some of our favourite shots from our collab down below!
