While being on duty as the makeup artist for a bridal client I received an phone message and email asking for my availability the following Tuesday for a production shoot. Like I said, these can be great for networking and new experiences. Schenectady Media would be running the show that day.
So replied yes and packed my kit for a 10 hour day of shooting. I also contracted Christina to assist me for the day to show her the ropes of production makeup.
The client was the Menorah House of Central New York. A retirement community pretty close to where I live and a place I have driven by on many occasion, but never really gave much thought to.
When I arrived I quickly saw that this was an amazing place to live in the golden years!
