95120 Almaden Lifestyle Magazine Editorial Head Shot – San Jose & Bay Area Model & Professional Head Shot Photographer

Have you seen the latest issue of 95120 Almaden Lifestyle Magazine? The magazine was delivered last month to homes and businesses in the Almaden area. You can find copies at Tacos Al Pastor, UnWined Wine Shop & Bar and The Studio Salon & Boutique just to name a few.

Each month I look forward to photographing Chrissy and especially excited to see what she will be wearing. The dress and accessories were chosen by Jill Amen, of The Studio Salon & Boutique and Chrissy’s Mod Rolling Wave “look” was created by Christina Cotton, also a hair stylist from The Studio Salon & Boutique. Each time I visit the boutique I can’t help but walk out with a few things and practicing self control is very difficult there! I double dare you to walk in and see if you can walk out empty handed, I bet you can’t! You’ve read my previous blog posts but I’ll tell you again how much I enjoy the staff there. Everyone is so nice and Jill Amen is always so helpful. She knows I hate to shop, yes there are a bunch of us out there who would rather be doing other things, but when she knows I’m dropping in she has clothes lined up and ready for me to try on. I call her my personal shopper. She knows what works well with my skin color, my size and most importantly she knows my style. Go check out The Studio Salon & Boutique and tell Jill I sent you. You will not be disappointed!

Dawn Clarkson/Cosmetologist Extraordinaire {The Studio Salon & Boutique} – Professional Head Shots

I would like to introduce the very beautiful, intelligent and super duper nice person Dawn Clarkson. Dawn and I were introduced in 1992 as new members of the Almaden Valley Women’s Club. Fast forward to this year, Dawn is Chair of the 37th Almaden Valley Art & Wine Festival, to be held on September 15, 2013 at Almaden Lake Park. She is also Corporate Sponsor Chair and City Liason for the festival and if that weren’t enough to keep her busy she also is founder of Top Dog Rescue. On a personal level Dawn is one of those people you always see smiling, never has a mean thing to say about anyone and someone who lights up the room when she walks in. She wasn’t sure what to write when I asked for her Bio so I asked her a few questions.

1. What are your hobbies & things you enjoy doing?
I love running and have competed in several half marathons. I especially love destination races. I’ve traveled to Tennessee, LA, Oregon, and am going to North Carolina next year.
2. Tell me about Top Dog Rescue… My little non-profit is Top Dog Rescue. It’s really just me rescuing dogs mostly from the Merced Shelter. I fund everything and am going through the red-tape of making it an official non-profit rescue group.
3. Any pets and their names?
I am crazy about dogs and do a lot of rescue from the Merced Shelter. I currently own a hound/lab mix named Maytag and a doxie/terrier mix named Rue.
4. How did you become a hair stylist(what is the correct term)?
I became a Cosmetologist because I love hearing about people and believe in possibilities.
5. If you could have lunch with anyone who would you choose, dead or alive?
Who would I have lunch with??!! There are so many that have passed…my Grandmother’s, my good friend Anita….just to have the precious time back and tell them how much I miss them and share how much I’ve learned. Jesus and Buddha would be good ones too! Oh, maybe former Pres. George Bush.
You can book your appointments with Dawn at The Studio Salon & Boutique / 6485 Camden Avenue / San Jose, CA 95120 / (408) 997-8151 / http://thestudiobyangi.com/

I look forward to every issue of both the 95120 Almaden Lifestyle Magazine & The LG Magazine but I get even more giddy when I shoot Chrissy Derksen, the editor at the above named magazines. In this shoot she’s wearing fashions from The Studio by Angi. I love these fall colors and the purse also compliment’s Chrissy’s outfit, also from The Studio by Angi.
