I am soooo blessed to have photographed celebrity hairstylist Shirley Gordon’s Wig Launch in Washington, DC.  Shirley and I have been doing shoot together for nearly three decades so it was truly an honor to team up with her and celebrity makeup artist Derrick Rutledge to commemorate her wig launch!  Special thanks to my son Brandon and Brandon Waters for assisting with lighting and video.
