Since I am contantly begging Jpegs from the good folks at Sacramento Magazine, I figured I better get them on the blog. Here are some of my recent published works. One point three MILLION thanks for letting me do my ‘ dream come true ‘ job and shoot for you and then for letting me relentlessly bum jpegs from you to put on my blog.
This was an absolute delight to photograph, I mean come on, taking photos of a bunch of healthy, happy, ripped people. Life is good indeed.
Great information on how to get some great deals on cool stuff in Sacramento. Mama super likes.
And lastly, this assignment was soooooooooooooooooo fun ! I highly recommend checking some of these places out.
I bought this book and highly recommend it !
And since it is apparently not possible for me NOT to do an epic blog post, here are few more favorites from these assignments.
My foray into being a paparazzi photographer was at the 2011 California Hall of Fame induction this year for Sacramento Magazine. So very exciting shooting celebs next to many of my fellow photographers. I was a bit star struck when I saw Robe Lowe. Instantly I was a 13 year old girl admiring him Justin Beeber groupie style. As he walked by I screamed ” Rob, I LOVED your book “, he stopped and acknowledged me for what seemed like an eternity and said ” who paid you to say that ” ? In my mind that was just like making out : ) I am a huge Rob Lowe fan and actually did read his book and loved it. His character on the show Parks and Recreation is one of my favorites !
I could have shot this for hours on end, the swing dancers at Veterans Salute Dance Party had mad skills. Loved watching them and shooting them ! The band The Jive Aces was incredible. Here is the one the ran in Sacramento Magazine for the ” Big Picture ” spread this month.
And as I am still super overkill in 2012, here are tons more of my favorite photos from my recent work in my beloved Sacramento Magazine : )
THANKS FOR TUNING IN !
This is my second time photographing Clint Eastwood, he was SO nice both times. Really an awesome guy !
Clint’s wife cracking up : )
Aldridge the O.G astronaut.
I am a HUGE fan of Lisa Ling ! Also SO nice !
That is Brenna Hamilton in the cute black and white skirt, she put this whole Sindig together. Her Skirt is a circus theme as she called it a ‘ media circus ‘. Fun fact, I shot her wedding oh so many years ago.
The beach boys. Awesome right.
The most excellent shot ever : ) This last one is of my beloved Kristen and Brian at the Citizen Hotel for the last issue of Sacramento Magazine ‘ great nights out’. I LOVE these kids and I LOVE the Citizen hotel. Total win win right : )
O.k end of the year and perhaps my blog titles are not so witty….. go figure.
I say this again and again, often I ponder that I can not believe my good fortune. In life, love and work, I am blessed indeed. Shooting for Sacramento Magazine is truly one of my favorite things to do, I love getting a peek into peoples lives. Here are a few of the assignments I have done over the past few months :
Deirdre Fitzpatrick from KCRA , omg did we LOVE this lady, beauty was just one of her attributes, she is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet. We had a great time shooting this on the Citizen Balcony. One of the best make-up artists Sheri Morris owner of Brushworx Makeup Artistry was in the house making me look good with her great make-up work and she brought the talented and uber cool Dacy Mc Whorter to help style the shoot.
Here is the one that ran in the magazine:
A few more of my favorites :
Are you kidding me with that delish sunset ?
And Nick Adorno, just the cutest kid ever ! What a treat getting to take his photo. We took loads of photos at the theatre, but the image they choose was shot at my beloved Image Provocateur’s salon in downtown Roseville. My friend Dana Schleth was doing a fashion shoot there so I horned in and used some of her lighting. Dana Rules. Again here is the one the magazine ran and a few favorites:
Talk about a dream job ! Louis Warfield from Rhino Design Studio gets to design and construct cool stuff and get paid for it. I was fascinated by his cool toys. A giant robot AND elephant, come on !
AND…. the Effervescent Melissa Crowley from News 10 Sacramento and Company was just pure joy to photograph ! Just a delightful gal full of life and spunk. The good folks at at California Backyards in Natomas were kind enough to allow us to use their lavish Christmas display for the shoot. Fun fact, the jumping and clowing around, that was ALL Melissa !
LUCKY !!! Here are a few of my recent shoots for Sacramento Magazine ! LOVE LOVE LOVE doing cool shoots like these ! Shooting the annual St. Baldricks event truly touched my soul, one of the most memoriable shoots of my life. I loved the image Sacramento Magazine ran, these moments were so very touching. Everyone of the folks shaving their heads seemed brave, but the young ladies doing this act for charity was especially memoriable :
RYAN MCKINNY…what a gem this guy was. We had a BLAST shooting this photo ! Ryan was one of the best subjects a person could ask for. He is so Hot right now, with his movie ‘The Invited‘ recently released. I was able to listen to Sacramento Magazine’s own treasure Elena Macaluso interview him. I LOVED the way he spoke about Sacramento, extolling its many amazing areas for movie making.
I heart Sacramento and am happy to see a ‘local boy make good’ :
photos with heart and soul
