When I am not shooting fashion or beauty I love serving as the NYC Chapter Director for Flashes of Hope, a national charity that brings commercial photographers into juvenile cancer treatment centers to photograph the patients and their families.
Today I had the pleasure of running a photo shoot with photographer Shirin Tinati who specializes in actors’ head shots and makeup artist Marilyn Wise. Shirin is also a cancer survivor which makes the experience all the more meaningful.
Working with this organization puts a lot of things into perspective. The experience is grounding. The kids are amazing. The parents are strong. The child life specialists, nurses, doctors and hospital staff are incredible!
