Well this past month has been crazy busy and I've been gone more than I've been home...but such is the life of wedding season. Before I jump on a plane back to the east coast for another wedding this weekend, I wanted to take a moment to share with you the brand new album cover I shot for The Reigning Monarchs, the coolest surf rock band you will ever hear. The album is a bit darker and perhaps more mature than some of their previous upbeat tunes so we wanted to capture that feeling in a super simple photograph..."of a hot girl...in a black sweater." If you are into surf rock (and why wouldn't you be?) be sure to head right over to iTunes to download this awesome album. If you'd rather have your very own signed CD then leave a comment below and I will randomly choose a winner.

Last week my beautiful, talented, amazing friend Lisa Loeb released her brand new rock album. It's truly fantastic and you should all head right over to iTunes to buy it. Oh and by the way, I shot the cover art. This was the very first shoot I had in my brand new studio which is now a little over a year old. One of the tracks on the album is a cover of First Day of My Life by Bright Eyes which Lisa sang for the first time at my wedding back in 2008. It was so beautiful and made everyone cry. A couple of years later she recorded the song as a gift for my husband Gary on his 40th birthday. We cried again. Now it's on her album. Here is the video of Lisa singing the song at our wedding. Sigh, time really flies, doesn't it? It will
Recently I was approached by the incredibly lovely and incredibly hilarious http://tessrafferty.com/?page_id=46...long-term head writer for The Soup about shooting a cover for her new book, Recipes For Disaster, a memoir chronicling some rather disastrous dinner parties Tess has thrown over the years. One of the things that was remarkably fun about this project was that Tess & I, with the help of our husbands go to completely conceptualize and style the shoot ourselves. No direction from the publisher really...just that it need to be "clean". We didn't entirely know what we were going to do, but with the help of makeup artist David Marvel, a rack of clothing and a few random props, we pulled off some really fun images which captured the spirit and attitude of the book. And just today, the book (due out in October) was posted on Amazon for pre-order. Enjoy!
I have known the super gorgeous Jessie Malakouti since she was 17, just a babe in the world with her music career just barely sprouting. Now, a whole bunch of years later (I've lost count), she is wildly successful with her own band, Jessie & The Toy Boys and has been on tour opening for Britney Spears and wowing huge audiences with her talent. A couple of months ago Jessie came to the new studio to do a shoot for her new single, Perfect Shade of Red which should be available soon via iTunes. I wasn't sure which image had been selected but I was thrilled to see that the cover art is now finished and looks fantastic. Awesome makeup by the adorable Colby Makeup.
