Meet Cheryl: a fun-loving, creative, endearing Los Angeles writer and New Jersey native. I took Cheryl’s headshots last week and was lucky enough to see many beautiful sides to this Madonna-loving, free-spirited Italian girl. Curious about her journey as a writer, I asked Cheryl a few questions about it.c do Cheryl Guerriero, Los Angeles Writer

A: How long have you been a writer and what led you to this creative field?

Q: There was something that I witnessed that gave me an idea for a movie. And up until that point I was pretty bored with the jobs I had. I wasn’t passionate about any of them. Then I had this idea…. and I started writing. It was a New Year’s Eve when I first sat down at my computer to write and I was so damn happy… I realized this is what I want to do.img 9843 22 Cheryl Guerriero, Los Angeles Writer

Q: What sorts of genres do you tend to write?

A: I’ve written in all genres. I love dramas, even though they are the most difficult screenplays to get sold and made. But movies like THE TOWN – I really enjoyed that movie. Essentially – it was a drama, masked in action.img 97471 Cheryl Guerriero, Los Angeles Writer

Q: Any pieces you’re especially proud of?
A: I’m proud of every script I have given birth to… they are all my “babies.” Although if I have to pick the script I’m most proud of it would be the last screenplay I wrote….. But don’t tell the others!c eye Cheryl Guerriero, Los Angeles Writer

Q: Any specific goals/aspirations you have as a writer?
A: To not jump out the window, or turn on the gas and close the windows when the writing process is torturing me.img 98462 Cheryl Guerriero, Los Angeles Writer

Q: What tends to help you most when you’re feeling blocked?
A: My vibrator. Or I walk around the block for awhile.img 9920 Cheryl Guerriero, Los Angeles Writer

Q: What do you enjoy most about being a writer? Least?
A: When I write a scene or dialogue for my characters and I know I hit it out of the park. And when others read my work and have enjoyed what I wrote. Least – not being able to make a decision.img 9966 Cheryl Guerriero, Los Angeles Writer

Q: Besides writing, what other sorts of activities do you enjoy?
A: Swimming in the Atlantic Ocean. The Pacific is too damn cold.cheyrl bw Cheryl Guerriero, Los Angeles Writer

~A giant thank you to Cheryl for giving me the opportunity to photograph her and also to makeup artist Katy Holland for helping out with the shoot!!!~

In early September, Sarah will be getting married to Adam in the south of France. To celebrate her last moments as a bachelorette, she hosted an eloquent brunch at her home in Los Angeles with all the ladies. What a treat!

mg 6694 Stacy Colleen: A Gal with a Heart of Gold

Stacy Colleen, also known as Sc, is one of the most genuinely happy people I know. We couldn’t have had more fun during our photo session, as our focus was taming ourselves from uncontrollable laughing outbursts. She was super excited about having an interview, so here it is, along with some big smiles from the day……

mg 6517 Stacy Colleen: A Gal with a Heart of Gold

Q: Where are you from, how long have you lived here and what do you do for a living?
A: I am a native of Los Angeles, having attended school and lived here until college, when I moved to the East Coast to attend Mount Holyoke College and study Psychology.  I moved back to L.A. to attend U.S.C.’s School of Social Work where I earned my M.S.W. and continued working in the social service field here, focusing on substance abuse and the family, trauma, and the GLBT population.  I am a Licensed Psychotherapist in the Los Feliz area and teach at Phillips Graduate Insitute in Encino as an Adjunct Professor.
mg 6555 Stacy Colleen: A Gal with a Heart of Gold
Q: What do you love most about your job?
A: I love to hear the stories of my clients, through verbal storytelling and through the stories of their bodies and nervous systems. I work with trauma through Somatic Experiencing and yoga movement.  I love being able to be authentic with my clients and be able to help them laugh and cry.  So many people just need a witness to their pain and then they are able to begin the healing process.  I also rely on the support of 12 step programs when addiction is involved.
mg 6616 Stacy Colleen: A Gal with a Heart of Gold
Q: What’s your favorite thing to do when you’re not working?
A: Hmm.  I love having time with my family.  My children are amazing and so active!  There is little time for other things, although I enjoy Anusara yoga–an integrated yoga that includes the mind, body and spirit–seeing friends, and have recently taken up running.
mg 6459 Stacy Colleen: A Gal with a Heart of Gold
Q: If you could change one thing about today’s world (in America) what would it be?
A: Just one?  I guess my focus would be on helping to build compassion for others.  Opening the heart to the humanity of others, increasing tolerance of differences, making the world safe for children.  That begins at an individual level, I’ve experienced, and the more I open my heart, the more room there seems to be to pass it on.
mg 6633 Stacy Colleen: A Gal with a Heart of Gold
Q: Where is your favorite place to hang out in LA?
A: I have no idea how to narrow it down! I love the hiking in Griffith Park, the yoga studios all around L.A., the parks with slides, sand and swings, the unique sushi restaurants, the artists in Silverlake, the streets downtown, the boutiques in Los Feliz, the festivals and art and street fairs, the coffee houses, and especially the restaurants and bakery next to my office in Atwater Village.mg 6644 Stacy Colleen: A Gal with a Heart of Gold
Q: Any goals/aspirations at the moment?
A: I’m about to complete my 3 year training as a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner in trauma treatment and am taking an Anusara Yoga Immersion course in order to integrate yoga into my clients’ healing work.  I hope to be able to continue gaining experience and training as a psychotherapist and as a mother!
mg 6612 Stacy Colleen: A Gal with a Heart of Gold
Q: “Fun fact” not many people know about you?
A: I’m not afraid to be the first person on the dance floor! Also, it was surprisingly fun to take headshots for my website and pretend to be famous!mg 6322 Stacy Colleen: A Gal with a Heart of Gold
Q: Anything else you’d like to add…?
A: I would recommend Franny for headshots not only due to her artistic eye and easygoing personality, but because she made someone who usually makes silly faces at the camera be able to sit back, relax, and give a professional smile.

Sc, you’re incredible. I hope you never change. Namaste!

On Saturday, June 11, I photographed the Britax Child Safety, Inc. and charity partner Baby Buggy celebratory event, which highlighted the launch of the new Britax Baby Carrier. The special occasion was held at Castle Park in Sherman Oaks, California, where several VIP families attended to show their support. Above is an image of Baby Buggy Executive Director, Katherine Snider (left), and Britax’s Public Relations and Events Manager, Kate Clark (right), two incredible individuals.

Celeb attendees included: Ali Landry, Autumn Reeser, Dave Kushner, Erik Palladino, Ian Ziering, Kevin Frazier, Kevin Nealon, Laila Ali, Larry Birkhead, Samantha Harris, Brandon Molale, and Orly Marley. They took turns trying on new baby gear, posing for photos, and playing mini-golf with their little ones. Many infants were also able to enjoy the game as well thanks to their new baby carriers!brandon molale1 Britax and Baby Buggy Pre Father's Day Mini Golf Celebrity & Charity Eventhole in one Britax and Baby Buggy Pre Father's Day Mini Golf Celebrity & Charity Event

The event was a huge success for all. Parents and their little ones shared laughs, great food, and for some, hole-in-ones! The new Britax Baby Carrier will hit stores in early Summer, 2011. Also, Britax presented Baby Buggy with a substantial amount of product (new baby carriers, strollers, and car seats) that the organization will pass along to LA-area families in need. Kudos to all of those involved!
