I know people rag on LA all the time, but I love it. It really is a city of dreamers, and I find it inspiring to be in a place where so many people are pursuing their dreams. This beautiful girl is one of them. Anslee may be young, but after writing a persuasive letter and drawing out a grid containing all her reasons, her parents allowed her to start auditioning in Los Angeles. She’s nothing if not persistent – ask her mama. She’s already had successes, and I’m so thrilled to see where life takes her. She’s one of those rare people that combine looks, talent and personality. I had a blast photographing her model and acting head shots in Manhattan Beach.
a few behind the scenes of our session! Thanks to Anslee’s mom for snapping these while simultaneously holding a reflector. =) And as you can see, it was a real family affair. I’m so thankful my kids sometimes get to see what it is I do.
