Character and Traditional Headshots for voiceover actress Fryda Wolff.  Makeup by Morgan Panter.  (2014)

I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain.

Tumblrettes!  I need your google/image-fu skills!

Looking for interesting images of:

*Suburban Americana:  White-picket fence, kids on bikes, hot summer nights, nostalgia and innocence, what it meant to be a kid/teen growing up in a small town.

*Teen house parties.

*First love

Post links or images in your replies!(?)

Spent the last 3 days shooting my beautiful friend Katie West for an unannounced project, assisting Mary Taylor on her [celebrity name redacted] shoot today, shooting two more collaborations with Michael Rosner next week followed by headshots with Fryda Wolff and a promo shoot with Derek Mears and his action-comedy improv group, The Resistance.

Looks like I’m most definitely back in the photography saddle again, at least for the next couple of weeks!

Late night shenanigans with Katie West and Mary Taylor…
