Clearing Out the Noise

(Click on images to enlarge.)

Despite its calm-sounding title, this story was a bit hectic to produce. After several weeks of talking back and forth with Tia Carrere, of Wayne’s World fame, her publicist and even her husband, the day of the photo shoot finally came. I had just gotten a new Prius and cautiously drove it up the narrow and winding single-lane road that led to Tia’s Topanga Canyon home. This trip tested the Prius’ navigation system. It was nerve-wracking to say the least.

I managed to safely park my car, though a bit precariously on a small ledge that plunged down into the valley, and made my way into Tia’s beautifully modern and simple home. This was an oasis that immediately calmed me, even with the buzz of stylists, makeup artists and a gaggle of assistants.

The photo above right was taken after everyone else had gone home. Tia asked our staff photographer Charlize Lin to stay after and take a few more shots. This was taken in Tia’s shower. The water droplets and frosted glass made for a beautifully thoughtful photo that I just had to put in.

And the cover:
