Pics of the Week: Paparazzi for a living?!?…Naaa

By Chantel Elder

My friend Laura is one of the genius ladies behind Girls on the Grid. GOTG is a lifestyle blog in Sacramento that discusses everything from politics to the best night creams for ladies. There are several regular writers on it and a few months back she asked if I would guest blog when I had time. Of course I said I would and my guest blog has turned into a twice a month column on documenting women and what a day in their life is like. I love it so much… It fulfills the unaccomplished photojournalist in me. I am so serious when I say these guest blogs offer a way for me to get out in to the world and meet people that I never ever other wise would. It is really the perfect combination of photojournalism and environmental portraiture. I freaking LOVE it!

Last night Laura asked if I wanted to take some photos for the premiere of Touching Home, a movie written by two local twins starring Ed Harris. I thought it would be lots of fun and why not give a shot at being a paparazzi?! Turns out I am the sort of person that kind tends to shy away from people in the spotlight. I just stood quietly by Laura and while she chatted with people, I clicked away. Below are a few that I really like and I posted a link to all the others taken!
