Shooting with Claire Kotarski was pure joy from start to finish. I was referred to Claire by her friend Mary McGowan who I photographed in September. I could see why they are friends. Like Mary, Claire is sweet, smart and hilarious. Not to mention beautiful! It was an overcast day, but we made the best of the lovely soft light that cloud cover gives, like natures giant softbox. We walked from Claire’s family home in Cheviot Hills to LA’s famed Rancho Park where we hit the swing set for some action shots that turned out to be some of my favorite pictures ever. Claire’s electric energy and zany zest never fell below the level of awesome and her poised confidence made nearly every shot a keeper. Thanks, Claire for an amazing shoot and thanks again to Anjanette Caron for providing her ninja make-up skills.
Fun, fun, fun!!!
