I had the best morning hiking around in nature with Sheridan Semple of Aspen Holistic Health. I am lucky enough to have known Sheridan for 25 years. Over that time I have witnessed her find her way into her true calling. She is a Holistic Health Practitioner, Nutritionist and Clinical Aromatherapist and most of all, is passionate about educating people on how to heal themselves. She has helped me with some challenging health issues and I highly recommend her services!!! She can work in person or remotely!!!! Here she is communing with nature and shining her beautiful light!
Harmony and her radiance have been featured here many times. This time is special because it is in honor of a transition in career for this dynamic woman! I cannot wait to see what this next year holds for her! She is a force to be reckoned with, that is for certain!
Lily is a talented singer, songwriter whom I have had the pleasure of knowing for many years. We never get to spend quite enough time together, so needless to say I was thrilled to be able to spend an afternoon with her capturing some images for her new EP that is due out any time now! Her beautiful voice matches her luminous presence.
Where do I begin with these wonderful humans? I had the good fortune to meet Kody, Kyler and Lisa last year through my participation in The No Man's Land Film Festival. Lisa Kowieski, of Made by Lisa Marie was the artist for the festival, and we met when we were both on a panel being interviewed for Gale Staub's Podcast, She Explores. We were speaking about our "moment of growth". Through Lisa, I met her fiancé, Kody McCormick and his brother Kyler. To say these young men are a dynamic duo would be a huge understatement. They have a company with a vision, called The Outbound Life. Please check out the work of all three of these amazing young entrepreneurs. You will be sure to be inspired!
To make a long and serendipitous story short, through that meeting, we stayed connected, and I ended up taking them all sailing last year. From that experience, a plan was hatched to take them on an adventure to Catalina. We just had the best trip together, and while they were in LA, I was able to take some headshots for them. Here are a few of my favorites from our quick headshot session in Venice.
I have been photographing Pearl since she was a wee one. I have written about her determination and grit before, and now at age 16, it is starting to really pay off. She just landed her first big movie, and I could not be more proud!!
I was so thrilled when one of my dear friends from high school hired me to take her daughter's senior portraits. I immediately fell in love with this young woman's amazing spirit! I walked away feeling so inspired and uplifted. I am sure college is going to set her on a path where she lights up the world with her determination and innovation!!!
