    Lovely, lovely album

  • Morning Moon August 30th, 2012 7:12 PM

    Awesome. I could feel the weather in the pictures!!! <3

  • Skatapus August 30th, 2012 7:23 PM

    Beautiful, photography inspiration as always. <3 I always end up wondering how many are posed or planned, and how many are happy accidents/fate aligning to provide interesting subject matter.

  • jinxstar5756 August 30th, 2012 7:24 PM

    Hazel where did you get that awesome red and white plaid skirt?

  • Summer August 30th, 2012 7:25 PM

  • ♡ reba ♡ August 30th, 2012 7:26 PM

    i feel like i’m trying to live through all these photo’s via my laptop screen

  • Adrienne August 30th, 2012 7:29 PM

    So gorgeous! I love #34 haha. :)


  • Lucas August 30th, 2012 7:30 PM

    Girls, seriously, you’re just A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

  • caro nation August 30th, 2012 7:31 PM

    THE SUNGLASSES ON NUMBER 6. WHERE DO YOU FIND SUNGLASSES LIKE THAT. And 50 and has the girl with the Night Channel’s Uzumaki shirt, who I want to hang with.

  • Ninaaa August 30th, 2012 7:34 PM

    i think every time i’m sad i need to remember this is here and come and look at it because it’s so p e r f e c t

  • Toilets August 30th, 2012 7:44 PM

    Rookie, you are giving me such bad wanderlust.

  • FlowerPower August 30th, 2012 7:45 PM

    Every picture here is beautiful and makes me happy, except maybe the armpit one c:Thanks for brightening my day Rookies!

  • isadora August 30th, 2012 7:50 PM

    I love all of these!
    7-12 look like scenes from a beatnik album.

  • kendallkh August 30th, 2012 8:06 PM

    This is unbelievably beautiful. 51 is such a great photograph.

  • lylsoy August 30th, 2012 8:11 PM

    You’re a dream. Such beautiful pictures! Summer is captured right there…

  • GlitterKitty August 30th, 2012 8:19 PM

    This is so beautiful and amazing and wonderful. I live vicariously through you girls.

  • Jenn August 30th, 2012 8:23 PM

    Where do you all find such fiiiiiine guys to hang out with (and clothes? and ahhh you guys are too good)

  • Clairebearscare August 30th, 2012 8:36 PM

    I was just at Twede’s cafe, three weeks ago! So cooool. I love all the Twin Peaks stuff they have in the back

  • Jes August 30th, 2012 8:50 PM

    damn, how’d you fit all those outfits in your van?

  • TessaTheTeenageWitch August 30th, 2012 8:53 PM

    My favourites are #2, #32 and cute boizzz in #8.

    Love you all, you are beautiful!

    • callie August 31st, 2012 2:42 AM

      ya who are the kewties in number 8 eh??
      god rookie is like a girls school who get super excited when a boy walks past
      in a goooood way

      • Anaheed August 31st, 2012 2:50 AM

        Those are Hazel’s friends!

  • dianeisnotmyname August 30th, 2012 9:10 PM

    This pictures are so inspiring for makeup/style stuff, plus overall confidence because everyone in the rookie pictures seems to have this “i’m a cool chick and I deserve your time” attitude even if they don’t always feel that way.

    PLEASE PLEASE visit DC on your next road trip (or without a road trip-just come here)! Seriously I’d be super happy if you visited and I feel like rookie would like DC because we have that mixture of intellectual politics stuff, but also cool record stores and #hipster activities.
    Also, DC area rookies should do a meetup.


  • victoria August 30th, 2012 9:10 PM

    these photographs are so beautiful and atmospheric. MAKE A PHOTO BOOK PLEASE SO I CAN BUY IT AND KEEP IT FOREVER? <3

  • ravenflamingo August 30th, 2012 9:18 PM

    Photo #5- what’s on the bed? I love these pictures by the way…I kind of regret not coming to the Ann Arbor meetup.


  • enwarhola August 30th, 2012 9:23 PM

    Petra is such a babe.

  • miaohong August 30th, 2012 9:30 PM

    Love the Uzumaki shirt in #50/#51. Horror nerd for life!

  • Taffy August 30th, 2012 10:04 PM

    I love the desert- there’s just a feeling I get from it that I can’t explain.
    But where are all of you rad girls? Clearly not in Rhode Island! :-(

  • Claudia August 30th, 2012 10:09 PM

    so nice! my favorites are the ones with the boys and the dock and the lake. every picture in this article really makes me love summer. i’m going to miss it.

  • ToriLynne August 30th, 2012 10:11 PM

    These are absolutely beautiful, Petra. Lovely photo diary, I want to go on a road trip too!
    xo, Tori

  • Leanna August 30th, 2012 10:43 PM

    That girl in SF with the beaded sweater and the hand-shaped sweater guard was so perfect. She and her friends were the first people I saw when I walked up to Bi-Rite, and it just so happened I was also wearing my schoolgirl skirt, hand-shaped sweater guard, and beaded sweater that day. (Although, unlike her, I couldn’t commit to the beaded sweater because it was hot!) I love SF Rookies.

  • laland August 30th, 2012 11:58 PM

    petra, may i ask what camera and film you use? or at least the film? the photos are great!

  • dandelions August 31st, 2012 12:07 AM

    #34: finally, THIS. I love this picture. I love that all of this means being a girl. Being a women is everything; what people call “tomboys”(for me is just a girl; why boys just can look like that?), what people call super girly, I don’t like to separate that. Because using make up or a miniskirt does not mean that I’m a brainless or a slut, or if I have hair in my legs or in my underarm does not mean I’m lesbian or ugly. That is why I like Rookie.

  • Isla August 31st, 2012 12:24 AM

    I love this so much! I wish I could go on a road trip like this!


  • catgirl August 31st, 2012 2:10 AM

    i love all the pictures, but #14 is my fave!

  • ivoire August 31st, 2012 3:02 AM

    amazing petra! cant wait for summer in australia! i can almost taste it.

  • Lucy August 31st, 2012 4:07 AM

    thank you for 34!!!! as someone who doesn’t shave her armpits it feels really great to see this in a magazine for teenage girls, rather than an explanation of how to get rid of my armpit hair

  • Lucille August 31st, 2012 4:19 AM



  • Dayzee August 31st, 2012 4:22 AM

    Beautiful stuff. You guys look like you had a killer time.


  • FlorenceEyre August 31st, 2012 4:43 AM

    These pictures are so cool and beautiful and summery and I miss Tavi´s captions.

    I think you should do a movie about Road Trip, Rookies!

    • Tavi August 31st, 2012 4:50 AM

      i’m adding them later! this week was too cray for me.

      • FlorenceEyre August 31st, 2012 2:54 PM

        I thought so :) Good luck in school everybody!

  • livvy August 31st, 2012 5:10 AM

    what camera and film did you use in these amazing photos? xx

  • yellowdocs August 31st, 2012 5:50 AM

    Uh… seeing those pictures… I really want to go to the U.S.A. when i’m 21… Why are the flights so expensive? Oh one question: Will the Team of Rookiemag ever come to Europe? Keep up the great work!

  • Susann August 31st, 2012 6:04 AM

    Once again, those beautiful photos leave me so impressed and jealous about the road trip!

  • morgan-may August 31st, 2012 7:11 AM

    These are beautiful Petra! What camera(s) do you use? They look like film ones.

  • Emma S. August 31st, 2012 7:21 AM

    You guys are the best and this whole thing is like, what the hell year is it, I can’t remember, oh god, I miss using film. xoxoxoxo

  • sttefaaa August 31st, 2012 7:47 AM

    14th is amazing!!! I love the mood in these pictures. Makes me wanna go out and have some fun ^^


  • dadee August 31st, 2012 9:45 AM

    Beautiful pictures! I suppose you have an analog camera, may I ask you which film did you use?

  • eliselbv August 31st, 2012 10:12 AM

    Sometimes I wish I could be American especially when I see pictures like those one.
    Rookie rocks!!


  • WitchesRave August 31st, 2012 12:00 PM

    this is my favourite photoset yet, because you can feel the athmosphere.
    ps. you guys should do an instrument decorating tutorial!


  • Cutesycreator aka Monica August 31st, 2012 2:44 PM

    This is my favorite photoset I’ve seen on Rookie so far, ever. (Part 1 is a close second.) Every single picture is so perfect and gorgeous and PRETTY.

    Well, every picture on Rookie is perfect and gorgeous and pretty, but these… wow. Just wow. These are somethin’ else.

    By the way, this is my first comment on Rookie… YAY! :)))))

  • Velvetmary August 31st, 2012 3:10 PM

    This is so inspiring, thank you for that.
    I really have the problem of wanderlust now. And blooming creativity, but no time at all… too bad.

    And thank you for picture 34. I never found the coruage to NOT shave my armpits/legs, but I don’t feel comfortable around people then… even though I would really love to stop all this… pressure about it.

  • Moxx August 31st, 2012 3:15 PM

    #50 Uzumaki!

  • RXLWK August 31st, 2012 3:31 PM

    That picture of Tavi in front of the R&R Diner is basically two of the greatest things of all time converging into one glorious, glorious image. I peed myself just a little bit. Well done, Petra! Well done.

  • Izzy August 31st, 2012 4:14 PM

    Everywhere I look, I just see beauty.

  • kitteh August 31st, 2012 4:30 PM

    Tavi is so pretty :o she looks like Michelle Williams

  • mollywobbles August 31st, 2012 6:29 PM

    These photos have so much character. At one point I could almost feel the warmth of the summer sun on my skin but then I realised it was my laptop overheating.
    Also, those boys are very cute :D

  • TheNarcissisticGinger August 31st, 2012 7:43 PM

    I changed my desktop backround like four times when I saw all of these stunning images. I finally decided to set my backround as the photo with Miss Tavi fanning her lovely self with that lovely fan while wearing that lovely skirt while standing in front of that lovely car. They look fantastic, Miss Petra!

  • Fey August 31st, 2012 8:13 PM

    I absolutely love these pictures. Now I am just aching (even more than before!) to go on a roadtrip through the USA. It is definitely on my bucketlist. Oh, one day..

  • Isabellla August 31st, 2012 8:57 PM

    This is just omg like the Tavi diaries i love it it is amazing and perf

  • Lulli August 31st, 2012 11:33 PM

    These photos are soooo pretty.


  • Josefi August 31st, 2012 11:35 PM

    Oh!! You girls are soo pretty !!
    Tavi and Hazel <3<3
    And now Petra is my new favorite photographer ever :)
    Tavi, where did u get that beautiful swimsuit?? I LOVE IT!

    xoxoxooxox from Chile!

    • Tavi September 18th, 2012 6:55 PM

      Delia*s! It’s my sister’s.

  • FlorenceEyre September 1st, 2012 2:06 PM

    Tavi, your hair accessory in photo 56 is so amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • nest September 4th, 2012 10:51 AM

      agreed! if it’s diy, a tutorial of how to make it would be awesome

  • GildedLocks September 1st, 2012 6:45 PM

    The gals in 25 look SO PERFECT oh my god. Like a still from a 90′s coming of age film. And I’m totally lusting after Tavi’s perfect Prada lip skirt.

    I am happy that a lot of people in the comments like my Uzumaki shirt. (*/∇\*)

  • caro nation September 1st, 2012 7:24 PM

    Didn’t see that THEESatisfaction shirt the first time please do tell

  • necroticbird September 2nd, 2012 1:41 PM

    Loving these!

  • Rosita September 2nd, 2012 7:56 PM

    What camera and film were used????

  • nest September 2nd, 2012 10:15 PM

    Ahh so for some reason none of the images for albums on Rookie show up on my computer anymore and I’m not sure why :( Also the images on the side of articles on the home page are missing. Can anyone help with this? Thanks!

    • Anaheed September 2nd, 2012 10:59 PM

      What browser are you using?

      • nest September 4th, 2012 10:26 AM

        Firefox. I was thinking it would be good to try it on safari or something…looks like it does work there, thanks.

  • Aubrey September 2nd, 2012 11:44 PM

    Totally dead over Hazel’s Hunx tee. Need. Now.

  • nest September 4th, 2012 10:54 AM

    So happy I can finally see this pictures (thanks, Anaheed!) . They are so so beautiful :)

  • Ben September 4th, 2012 11:12 PM

  • bobbi1211 September 6th, 2012 6:17 PM

    I LOVE THE SHOES ON #20! Pray do tell, where did you get them?

    • Anaheed September 6th, 2012 6:26 PM

      I got them from the Barneys Warehouse Sale. Brand is Marsèll.

  • Juli September 8th, 2012 5:55 PM

    These images are each wonderful non-dream dreams. I so wish I had been there. :) Aaaaaaannd I didn’t realize how incredible Tavi’s voice is. You are nearly a literal song bird.

  • Lemons December 1st, 2012 5:03 AM

    How did I miss this one? It’s amazing. and the fact that Tavi likes twin peaks….its official = coolest girl in the world.


  • margaret e. May 7th, 2013 10:13 PM

  • littlediamonds November 3rd, 2013 10:30 PM
