Work, really?

I received a call from Butch Adams, in November. I thought he must be feeling like shooting the breeze, wanting to get info about what my sister, a good friend of his, wants for Christmas. But no, he had work. He asked if I could assist an Art Director from San Francisco on a catalog shoot for a progressive company called Econscious Clothing. Art Director Dave Kovner flew out for the occasion. He was a dream to work for. He's done a lot of big work with huge companies like Pottery Barn and has a great natural instinct. He's also very humble and genuine. So not only did I get to work in November, which never happens, but it was really fun to work with him, Butch and Kathy Vargas again. The models were wonderful and fun as well. ( Dan, "Who makes the turn-y thing the knob?") It was cold, and it smelled of brine shrimp out on Antelope Island but picturesque and really magical. Poor Butch had a freshly broken back and still worked the full three days, no whining. He's an animal.

On an awesome side note, I am now represented by TMG for Make-up and Styling. I was THRILLED to get my first call from them but alas, I was scheduled. My first call, and I have to say no. And in November?? I hope it's the first call of many.

Whadda week.

Last week we shot overnight in the Syracuse Walmart, finished at 4:00 am. And I got waaaay too giggly around two. I nearly ruined a take but managed to hold it together and run for the green room. What seemed so gosh darn funny then, now...not so much.

Tuesday I had another overnighter but I had the good fortune of hiring a good friend and my sister to both assist for me. The two people who know me well enough to say, "Go get your own steamer, Lady. Geez." But surprisingly neither did, and that is why they will get more calls from me! Thanks to the "Jens" for being willing to step in and help me after that last minute cancellation. And thanks for just being cool girls. I love you!

Wednesday was a prep-day and Thursday we shot at the new Intermountain Health complex. Wow, are they nice buildings. And all of the hospital people were so classy to drop their massive work load involving this huge opening and assist us with the shoot. I can't imagine doing it with out them but I'm sure they wanted us to try sometimes. And thanks to Jen, and Kenny, who assisted. Thanks for making that the most fun I've had all year. God love you, Kenny, for telling me that awesome story. I haven't stopped smiling all week.

I turned, well, a certain year over Thirty on Sunday and that ended my week.
