Halloween in Bakersfield

Happy Halloween everyone! And yes, that is my goofy, silly, SPARKLY side :) Enjoy...
Eric dressed up as his glory days, and I threw everything I owned with sparkles on...and called it a costume. yes! An excuse to bedazzle myself!

Here's a montage of some of the amazing people at Olive Drive Church and their annual Family Night. Join us next year!

We also got the chance to stop by the Lofy halloween party. I just had to take photos of all the awesome 'victorian' halloween decorations Shauna made.

Bakersfield Life Magazine shoot

Well, this month I had the awesome privilege of photographing and meeting 5 amazing female surgeons here in Bakersfield. The Bakersfield Life Magazine is doing an article on them for the upcoming November issue and asked me to photograph them for a 4 page spread. The best part was throwing on a 'bunny' suit and meeting them inside of an OR at Kern Medical Center to shoot a group shot. I guess I can now say that was the most sterile photo shoot I've ever done! Here I am prepping for the lighting with a self portrait... and here's the timer shot where I ran onto the table....good thing no one had any scalpels in their hands!
If you missed the October issue, here's the post from the Bakersfield Life Car photo shoot: Jessica Frey Photography
