Working with Annie Leibovitz made for a day filled with excitement and lightness. It was a busy day and I needed to move swiftly to get the makeup and hair done for the lovely Doris Kearns Goodwin, Richard Goodwin, and many more. The photographer is generally the one who sets the mood for the day and Annie has a genuine ease and comfort about her. This shoot was busy, with many shots to be achieved. Annie set a sense of comfort and tranquility throughout the day and also a sense of joy and enthusiasm. She has this incredible ability to create calmness in the room no matter how busy it gets or how many people are in it. It is clear to see how she has the ability to captures intimate moments with her subjects as she has done with so many celebrities. Check out some of our "behind-the-scenes" shots from our day!
