What else you should know

Almost all of my clients are just regular people, like you! I am used to directing non-actors and making you feel very comfortable in front of the camera. The venue does not allow for outfit changes, so please arrive camera ready. Arrive early to get inside the gardens before our start time.

What to bring

Keep in mind that we will be walking a lot, so comfortable shoes are a must! You can also bring an extra pair to wear in between shots, if needed.
Arrive "Camera Ready" as we want to use every minute we have together.
Dress for the camera! Choose a base color that works with everyone's outfit. Avoid matching outfits. Think about layers, textures and accessories to add interest.

Where you'll be

The Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden is a unique 127-acre botanical garden and historical site located in what was the heart of the historic Rancho Santa Anita in the city of Arcadia. This is hands down one of my favorite places in the Los Angeles area!
