Every now and then.
I feel like I’ve been running a marathon. Correction. I’m currently pounding the pavement as we speak. Between the Carribean, Palm Springs, and a voyage tomorrow that will take me to Alaska, Seattle, Portland and San Francisco, I am thankful for my full plate while Husbone whiles away days with music in the United Kingdom. It’s good to keep distracted during these lonely times. And friggin Alaska! I’m so excited!
Anyway, this is Stephanie, and she strikes me as one with presence enough to be one hell of an actress. I like her hair and I think she should be in the reprise of Braveheart.
This being a slow time in the biz, at least around here – which I am very thankful for because there are definitely some crazy times ahead – I thought I might institute a new feature on my blog.
Ask me Anything!
Put it in the comments, and I’ll give you an honest answer. It can be about my business, my life, my husbone, my kitties, my photography – seriously folks, anything. I’m just dying to divulge…
In the meantime, I thought I would share with you, Helen, at our 10 minute headshot session. This was what we called, “happy mom.” Her evocation of this character was pretty on target, I think. Happy, certainly. I was happy too, because the sun was out and I didn’t have to wear a darn coat!
A lovely young woman, from another time in her music, her wardrobe, and her spirit. She is Americana and planning to take Nashville by storm, via LIC bar, in my very own home town, this freezing evening. Trooper, is one word to describe this talented young lady, other than, of course, amazingly beautiful.
A video light has come into my posession. It likes to eat battery, and we had to plug it in every two minutes. But, that being said, and this being a very different session than most, Nora Jane and this tungsten bulb were in harmony with each other. Her 50’s curls didn’t hurt. She came to me to evoke some shadows as seen in old Veronica Lake portraits. “You ARE Veronica Lake!” cried her cousin and session assistant! I agreed, and pressed the button from which my living is made.
I love what I do. And I love what Nora Jane does, too. Check out her MySpace page!
Random Fact: Nora is my country name, in which Husbone may fit me into his country songs without making impromptu visits to India. One such number was called Hindquarters, which is unfortunately, out of print. But you can imagine.
