I had the opportunity to photograph Erin a friend of mine who recently achieved opening up her own business in the swanky, Newport Beach, CA. She wanted new portraits to celebrate a new phase in her business. We where able to get these beautiful images of her just walking around the block where she runs her skin care company. I laughed with her as I told her that the anxiety people feel before a portrait shoot often drives them to drinking. I think some people are as afraid of getting there pictures taken as I am of the dentist! Well, she said she does not photograph well and I beg to differ, she looks wonderful and confidant in these pictures and I celebrate her dream becoming reality.
