When she is not blogging, Bridget is researching photos for a mix of advertising, corporate and media clients. Coming from the same gene pool that established The Western Costume Company, she grew up in Los Angeles. She was raised by practical, salt-of-the-earth folks and went to schools with phone directories that read like a Hollywood Rolodex.
Voted “most original dresser” (read: worst dresser) in 8th grade, she continued to be interested in fashion until this very moment. Bridget majored in art history at Barnard College and spent some time in Portland, Oregon working at a book store, learning about photography and writing about music. You might see her in New York photographing obscure performers.
