Famous people... [Ugh I didn't even like typing it!] I'm very lucky to have met my fair share of them. People always want to know what they are like. "Is it true, what everybody says about so-and-so?" I try not to comment one way or the other, but if someone asks me about Hil, I can't help but gush about how much I ABSOLUTELY love her. She is by far one of the most genuine, kind & caring people I have EVER met. Not just in Hollywood... on Earth. Working with Hilary has blessed my family & I in so many ways. From the cards & flowers that have filled all of Christa's hospital rooms to the hours of laughter we have shared around the world, of course, always accompanied by Lauren Bannock, who keeps this dream team alive [Of course I didn't forget you!], and Adam Breuchaud [make-up artist and staff comedian]. I reserve cliches for people who truly deserve them, so when I say that Hilary Duff makes work not feel like work, I BIG TIME mean it. Although I won't share the details of most celebrities I encounter, I will say that none of them hold a candle to this outstanding human being.
I was honored to help Glasses USA capture these promos for Hil's new eyewear collection, alongside the legendary Harper Smith [photographer extraordinaire & wife to the motherfucking bassist of Midland - the world's greatest country band]. Harper's crew was so incredibly helpful and welcoming, which helped make this shoot a breeze & the Glasses USA team, all the way from Israel, were great partners throughout the production despite a wild time difference.
