Out Of The Box Launch Party (7/29/17)

Posted by on Aug 6, 2017 in Blog | Comments Off

Thanks so much to Rose Rossi and Kristin Malko for having me for the launch of their comedy web series (launched entirely from their Kickstarter) “Out Of The Box” about two new mothers whose bodies have turned against them, struggling against all odds to keep their sanity intact. Also, a big special shout out to Lorenzo Zocaio for his stellar musical performance before the preview. Thanks to all those that made this project a reality…and thanks again for this super soirée!

Thank you so much to Jessica for having me shoot some potraits with her and her handsome man in Oakland last weekend. Such a beautiful, sunny day for sitting on the dock of the bay.

Ramisi :: Poppies

Had to catch the California Golden Poppy bloom out at the Antelope Valley Poppy Preserve in Lancaster with the lovely and talented Ramisi Leigh before they bake in the high desert heat. Such a great day. Thank you to Amy Prado for the make-up and helping us battle the insane wind.
