I have been photographing Dara all of her life. Isn’t she absolutely stunning? Today she is getting head shots for college. We took these within a 2 block radius in between my work and her home in the Strip - so many amazing background there, we had so much fun! She wants to study musical theatre and some of these will be what she uses to submit for her applications. Good luck Dara - can’t wait to see where life takes you!

Lucy is 15 and is the most patient model ever….the rice cakes she managed to snag from the kids did help! The chaos behind the shoot will never be experienced by anyone other than Mo, Lacey and me but the laughter looking back is priceless. Enjoy!
