A fourth-generation Californian born and raised in Santa Monica, Dara spent her formative years surrounded by artists, innovators, and creative thinkers. With a deep appreciation for all things design oriented, she experimented in everything from fashion and interiors to floral design. After moving to San Francisco to study Art History, she serendipitously discovered the world of photo and commercial styling.
With over thirteen years of photo, commercial, and video styling under her belt, ranging from wardrobe and costume design to prop and textiles styling, Dara's depth and range of production experience and on-set knowledge is formidable. Her current focus is on collaborating with both new and existing directors, photographers, and clients, working collectively as a team to create beautiful, effective, and inspiring imagery.
The innate beauty, landscape, and creative communities of California continue to inspire her work, and she currently resides in Los Angeles with her family.
In addition to on-set styling Dara is available for:
Art Direction and Creative Consulting
Event Styling and Production
Interior Design + Styling
Content Production + Creation
