A couple of weeks ago, Dr. Milind Ambe, a top plastic surgeon here in Newport Beach and friend of our family, left me a voicemail asking if I could put together a last minute photo shoot for ‘Ambe Aesthetics’ a new line of skin care products that he and his wife Heidi Ambe developed. They had been invited to an exclusive celebrity PR event at the SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills and needed images for a huge banner and new brochure. Tamra Barney from Real Housewives of OC uses and loves Ambe Aesthetics skin care products and agreed to be the model for this shoot.
The shoot took place at Milind and Heidi’s house in Newport Coast just down the street from my house. I spent about two hours with Tamra, who made this one of the easiest shoots ever, shooting in different rooms throughout the house and in the front courtyard. Heidi and Milind’s house is so amazing and gorgeous with great natural light bouncing everywhere. I brought a ton of lighting, but ended up leaving in the car and shooting this one 100% available light.
