Sunrise Senior Living | Valencia, CA

Every Sunday I visit my grandmother’s senior living home and I hold a “craft class”. It’s a lot of fun for me and I think it’s a lot of fun for the ladies (generally) that join in. Being as I am a photographer by profession and only a crafter by hobby, I have long wanted to do some photos of some of the women that I have the pleasure of crafting with each week. My grandmother will be 98 years old this coming April, and since taking a few weeks off of the craft class while my grandmother has been ill and in the hospital, I decided it was about darn time, and we needed to get these done! So, along with a couple helpers, and a wonderful makeup artist (Nicole Lind Beauty) who graciously donated her time to do this with me, we did a little pamper and photo shoot! Here are some of my favorites of these beautiful women!

Ended with a nice little chat before dinner!

I had such a great time taking these photographs! I can’t wait to share them with the ladies and Sunrise!

A HUGE thank you to my helpers: Caitlyn (AKA Auntie KK), Tracey, Teagan and Corbyn!

And an extra special thank you to Nicole Lind for coming and making these beautiful women feel special and glamorous!
