Here are some highlights from a recent photography shoot I did in Laguna Beach, California, for a music album cover. Shelly is recording her first solo album and wanted a variety of portrait looks for her album cover and inserts. 

We started off the day in studio with Maggie Cathey doing her hair and makeup. We took some portraits in the studio then headed for Crystal Cove near Laguna Beach. What's great about this area of the beach is that it has grassy areas that look like desert, a cliffside, tidal pools and sandy beach all within walking distance. We were able to get so many different kinds of shots.

As a Los Angeles music album photographer, I want to create connection between the artist and the viewer. Shelly is beautiful and has a joyful spirit (not to mention great hair!), so I worked to showcase the life in her eyes.  I'll post links when her album is finished!
