Campbell Reporter Cover Story published March 13, 2009

On March 6, 2009 I went to downtown Campbell after having my birthday celebration dinner with family to shoot the First Friday Celebration ‘Luck O’ the Irish.’ When I arrived I took this first shot that turned out to be the cover. These two girls stood out as really well dressed in costume from down the street.

There were some really cool shops in the alcove- One of the main sponsors was Bombshell Boutique who hired the bagpiper and handed out treats to the kids. They were even totally nice when I accidentally knocked over some clothes with my camera bag. Definitely nice people and had the right spirit of giving back to the community. Once I started shooting the event, I found these couple of shots:

I am glad that these two shots ran- the top one shows John Barlow from ‘Bay Area Stars’ who was a true professional in working with kids and making them feel really special. I enjoyed watching him work- he even made me laugh and feel good in his presence with his candid jokes. The bottom shot, I really like. I shot a bunch of this boy walking around and in his Dad’s arms. I was smiling at him from around my camera and this moment just happened- it’s really good when it happens!
