Cover of Arroyo Monthly..sneak preview

What a great way to start the new year, shooting a cover of a magazine!

I got called from Arroyo Monthly to photograph Leslie Uggams for their February issue. Leslie is a Tony and Emmy Award-winning actress/singer and started her lengthly career at the age of six! She opened for huge legends such as Louise Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, and Dinah Washington. Among all of her talents, she is portraying Lena Horne in the play "Stormy Weather" at the Pasadena Playhouse January 21 – March 1, 2009. I sat in on one of the rehearsals and it sounds like an amazing play. I've got my tickets and hope that you get yours too. Leslie Uggams has an amazing voice and should be heard in person live on stage!

Here is my favorite shot!


More pictures to come once it comes out!
