I'm not usually a headshot photographer but this being Los Angeles and all, everyone seems to need one. And I've actually been having a ton of fun photographing headshots specifically for women in my studio lately. Maybe because the light is so soft and pretty and flattering. The lovely Shani Darden, aesthetician to the stars came to me for a family portrait session and we managed to squeeze in a few updated headshots for her as well.
Diana is a great friend of mind and the pastry genius behind one of my main obsessions in life, Lollibakes...aka gourmet cake pops. She needed a new headshot(ish) for a few reasons to be announced in the coming weeks and months so I dragged her into the new studio. I must say, there is something that is so much fun about shooting headshots for women (especially in LA) because there is room to add in a little glamour.

I'm not sure that I know anyone who is more busy at the moment than my client/ friend Alison Dinerstein...who is not only preparing for her son's bar mitzvah (which I'm of course shooting) in a few weeks but is also launching a brand new business venture called Artisan Kitchen this year.

Lindsay Rush is the most delightfully talented young song writer who has been a FB friend for so long that I wasn't sure if we had actually met before or not. But since she was in need of some non-specific pictures for professional and personal use, we just decided to play in the studio for a couple of hours to see what we got. And since one of Lindsay's BFFs/ makeup artist Jen Shelton was so lovely as well, we did pictures of them together...because after all, who doesn't want a gorgeous portrait of themselves with their best friend? At some point I would just die to have a Young Hollywood cover Vanity Fair style portrait of myself with my 5 best girlfriends from high school. That would be divine.
