I’m BEYOND thrilled to help promote this amazing new book by Lulu Cerone!   This young woman is an incredible philanthropist (and has been since the ripe old age of 10) – and she has worked so very hard on this book!

Lulu is newly 18 (EIGHTEEN YEARS OLD) !    And yet, she conceptualized, planned and executed this book like a seasoned pro. There were many shoots … and roadblocks of course, but finally, the end product is here and I could not be more proud of her.  I have had the immense pleasure of photographing her since she was about 12 or 13 – and have watched from afar as she blossomed into a stunning, dynamic, talented and intelligent young woman.

Lulu asked me if I would shoot the images for the book last year, so pretty much every image you see was shot by me 🙂   Jami also provided makeup for the shoots as well – we had a blast with her and her amazing friends & family doing this.

PhilanthroParties!: A Party-Planning Guide for Kids Who Want to Give Back

This book is filled to brim with creative ideas on how to give back – how kids can do THEIR part to help their community or local charities … and how to incorporate it all with FUN parties.  What a BRILLIANT idea!

And what a great way to help teach the kids in your life how to give back – and have fun at the same time!

I have loved seeing all the press she is getting lately as well …. her articles on Ventura Blvd. Magazine, Groknation,, Girl’s Life and Forever 21 are inspiring, to say the least!

Make sure you follow her journey on her facebook page as well Lemonade Warriors.

I can’t wait to see where life takes Lulu … she is headed to Columbia University in the Fall (so exciting!) and I look forward to many more shoots with her in the future!!

If you're into moody portraits, 90's nostalgia, great wine, Taylor Swift, memes I find funny + probably way too many videos of my cats? You've come to the right place.
