I am sure the photographer wanted to ‘shoot” me

Next week I’ll have some studio stuff to share with you. I can tell David is a great photographer, passionate about angles, lighting, and not willing to give up until he gets the shot he is looking for. I was a hard subject. TOO, TOO, TOO. Too much going on to get here. Too much left behind (like shoes, all of them. We did a lot of barefoot shots!), and too tense. It took a lot of coaxing and wardrobe changes and FINALLY the personality did what improv is trying to get me to discover. Just relax and let it happen. “GO OUT THERE AND MAKE A MISTAKE!!!” That’s when it gets real. That’s when its soft and personable. And that’s when it becomes fun. I thank the crew that day,: make-up artist, grip, and the photographer for being patient. We shot for 6 straight hours.
Go to POPPYLAR and click on David’s site. He has done some stunning coverage in Vietnam. And he excels at portraits. Side note on him. He wrote lyrics for, Steele Dan and is married to an A plus, talented wife who is a sought after casting director. (Hope I got that band right). They are blessed with a beautiful home so nestled in nature you’d never know you were in the city. Credit also to the make up artist, who was MORE than patient. I appreciated her years of experience. She’d be super for weddings/do ups. BESTY diFRANCESCA 818 786-0422. , as well as, photo shoots. She can definitely handle a long day.

Best part of the day, I had my daughter with me and we lunched at a healthy yum yum restaurant called Hugos (corner of Coldwater and Riverside just north of the freeway) and dined at a Coffee Cafe on Tujunga just south of Moorpark. Right hand side. Great salads and deserts to DIE DIE for. All healthy! And we did an hour upper and abs workout at a LA Fitness. YES!
