Every year it is my GREAT pleasure to give the woman that keeps the wheels on the Sugar bus from falling off a session that thrills her to her toes (and keeps her at Sugar at least one more year). If you’ve worked with Sugar in the past, oh, four years, then you’ve had the opportunity to hear Mindy’s sweet voice over the phone, or her expertise in finding the right location for your session. She keeps me on schedule, organized (as best as she can), and is truly one of the happiest, genuinely NICE people I know. She jokes that she leads a charmed life, but it’s true. She does. And more importantly, she is so very deserving of all that life has given her.
Her charmed life extends into our sessions every. single. year. And this year we raced an oncoming wall of rain clouds and a location site dotted with tents and staff breaking down an event. But, as always seems to happen, we had an absolutely perfect session. Even the rain held off until we were finished shooting.
Charmed life, indeed. Just take a look:
(guess who just turned eleven?)
