I do not know how many times I photographed Randalene Sergent. I first photographed her for a feature in Iron Man Magazine for Bodybuilding.com. I remember being speechless, she was so breathtakingly beautiful as I looked through the camera. We became steadfast friends and I went on to photograph her for more magazine features, advertising, company promotions and fashion editorials. Makeup and hair styling in this photo shoot by another of my steadfast best buddies, Natalie Lyle.

We had over 11,000 live listeners on my most recent appearance on Blog Talk Radio with “Chatting With Sherri“. Actually that is my third time on Blog Talk Radio with Sherri.
“7th anniversary of award winning author’s Sherri Rabinowitz’s show Chatting With Sherri! Join Sherri as she chats with writers, actors and other artists about their work. A fun relaxing chat with all kinds of amazing exciting creative people. We also have a series shows under the umbrella of Sherri’s Playhouse; where playwrights and actors get a chance to strut their stuff! The home of The Chatty Award for most live listens and downloads!”
I hope I said something fun! “Chatting With Sherri”

From the Museum of Ice Cream to Happy Place, not a month goes by where there isn’t a new one to check out. October is no exception.
This month, the immersive new exhibit Cheat Day Land will open its doors in the L.A. Arts District. For those of you who were lucky enough to visit MOIC, you’ll find the space deliciously familiar.
Unlike its predecessor, Cheat Day Land is dedicated to, you guessed it, cheat days. With rooms dedicated to everything from donuts and chocolate to burritos and cereal, there are no shortage of photo ops for your social media or things for the kids to climb on or jump in.
Check it out and go visit! https://cheatdayland.com
And Thank You to the people who made the photo shoot work so well. The incredible featured Estee Lauder MakeUp Artist Blanche LeBeau. And my assistant for the day who also shot much of the video, Shauna Toerner.

While doing a publicity and workout photo shoot with my good friend Kerstin Schulze, she had a message to share. She was bullied as a kid too.
Now she lives her life to carry a message and be a role model to so very many as an actress, a fitness personality and a Mom. Take a minute for her very spontaneous and heartfelt moment…

I think Shauna Toerner does naked and restless very well indeed. Her dilemma helped with Makeup and Hair Styling by Natalie Lyle. An extra series on Fujifilm Instax instant film from our photo shoot at FD Photo Studio in downtown Los Angeles. Thanks!
