The Out-of-Towners

I seriously get to meet the best people.  And most of the time, I have no idea why.  Now, I’m not TOTALLY clueless.  But I am also not a super savvy web promoter. So when I get inquiries from strangers, with no word-of-mouth connection to me, I find it really interesting and mysterious.  (ohhh… you found me on the internet? That Google is so cool…) And so far, Google has sent me 100% awesome clients.

These folks are in that group.  They were in town for a family vacation in Scottsdale and wanted to get some extended family photos before a portion of the family moved overseas. Done!  And fun!

I took so many interesting photos of the family in the different beautiful places in Arizona. All of which are going to be a bomb to their friends and their loved ones when they get back to their hometown. I was happy to show them around and highlight all the marvelous places they should see, in the process taking some sort of touristy photos as well that would promote this city as well.

Something Different: PART 1

I just love those moments in life where things easily fall into place. (And, yes, surprisingly, I’m not being sarcastic here. That actually happens sometimes…)

Last fall I received a call from Lauren Snow (a stranger at the time) who needed a photographer for a shoot she was doing to launch her new business. (As her luck would have it, things were not going smoothly and her photographer had to cancel the week before the shoot.) Even though it was the busy season for me, and even though we had never met, and even though I know nothing about make-up (other than how to put it on my own face with varied levels of success) it all came together. (Not to mention, she is the sweetest!)

Lauren, her models (all “normal”, beautiful women) and I all had a fabulous time at the Saguaro Hotel in Scottsdale found in my page are the results.

I also felt honored to get to take this lovely lady’s photo.  Even in the midst of her battle with breast cancer, she was gorgeous.  Just blew me away…
