I met with Ashley Brown, good friend and actress, over the weekend to take some pictures at Santa Monica beach by the pier. The weather was turning chilly by LA standards, but that didn’t stop flocks of people from trying to get some sun. All the people made parking next to impossible, but with persistence and luck we found the last spot in a thousand-car garage. It was a late afternoon shoot and the warm lighting complemented Ashley nicely. Another friend and up-and-coming photographer, Nazim Deen, showed up with his wife Shazeen to help out with the photo shoot. Nazim provided quite a bit of assistance with lighting and equipment, which made the pictures even more amazing – so thanks for that! In the end I was very satisfied with the beautiful photos of Ashley, and it was easy for her to pick out a few favorites.
