2010 Las Vegas Heart Ball ~ Ritz-Carlton, Lake Las Vegas

I'm so excited to be invited to be a part of the local chapter of the American Heart Association's annual gala.  It's the 20th Annual Heart Ball fundraiser which is taking place Saturday, April 24th, 2010, at the Ritz-Carlton at Lake Las Vegas.  I'll be photographing the event which will encompass corporations sponsoring tables with benefactors, a silent auction, and even a martini bar hosted by Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman!  

In addition to photographing the event, I've donated a portrait package consisting of a portrait session and portrait credit, as well as a custom photo jewelry necklace.  Kristi, the director of the Heart Ball, has been such a doll to work with, and greets me with a hug when I see her.  I know this is a big event to put together, but I'm sure it will go off without a problem as she is organized, genuine, and passionate about the cause.  She even has Shalimar Studios featured in an ad in the program.  Thanks Kristi!

I'll be posting images after the event.  I can't wait to make my contribution to help our local AHA chapter!

Portrait, Branding, Fitness & Studio PHOTOGRAPHER

Fueled by equal parts Earl Grey tea and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. I believe in real moments and heartfelt conversations on the front porch. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come.
