DNC - Day 3,4 & 5 (I'm totally exhausted!)

Wowza - what a week! The Democratic National Convention is now completed - what an amazing convention, filled with so many amazing people. The "Faces of 2008" project is now completed. Photographer John Beebe has posted up most of the photos on his site: It was such a fantasticly crazy and fun week. You can take a look at our mobile photo studio in the youtube video HERE. In addition to the people in the photos below - I also did makeup for: Christine Pelosi (daughter of Nancy Pelosi and the author of Campaign Boot Camp), Moby (musician, and just plain awesome guy), and Hill Harper (a close friend of Barack Obama and Actor on popular TV show CSI).

Austin Goolsbee (Barack's chief economic advisor). Here's a quote from an article that pretty much sums it up about Goolsbee:

"In short, Goolsbee may be a centrist. But rich people don’t impress him. And their academic hired guns don’t impress him either. FDR and his economic advisers shared that same sort of skepticism about grand fortune. They also had something else: grand popular movements, out in the streets, demanding real progressive change.

Those movements turned skeptics about grand fortune into crusaders against it. That could happen again. In Austan Goolsbee, we’ll have a skeptic whispering in a President Obama’s ear. Now we just need a loud enough progressive movement."

David Fenton is the owner, CEO and founder of Fenton Communications. Created in 1982 to promote issue-oriented public relations campaigns focusing on the environment, public health and human rights.

John Sweeney is the president of the AFL-CIO. An AFL-CIO vice president since 1980, he was elected president of the AFL-CIO at the federation's biennial convention in October 1995 and was most recently re-elected in 2005.

Bettylu Saltzman one of Obama's first major supporters and donors. "She is a major Peace Now devotee, officer of the far-left".

Craig Newmark - founder of

Fran Drescher - Actress, Comedian, and cancer survivor. She is FABULOUS!

James Phillip Hoffa AKA "Jimmy Hoffa Jr." is the president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. He is the only son of the infamous Jimmy Hoffa, who was also a president of the Teamsters (among other achievements).

The week came to completion when a lovely client of mine gave me two tickets to Barack Obama's acceptance speech. I was unable to go - but the pure joy on my husband's face when I told him made EVERYTHING worthwhile! Go OBAMA!!
