PORTRAIT: Meet songbird Leilani Jaster!


I had the pleasure of shooting R&B Soul Artist Leilani Jaster! I have known Leilani for some years now. This woman has talent. She can sing, write, play instruments, and most of all entertain the heck out of a crowd!
Back in the day, I use to hit some karaoke bars with Leilani and what comes out of that voice is truly electrifying! She can work a crowd like no other. Everytime she sings you can feel the soul in her performance. One of my favorite performances was when I attended a show in Huntington Beach and she covered  Joss Stone's "Less Is More" and I was sold! I still 'til this day wonder if anyone that was there that night knew that song but, I did!
 We shot this out of Long Beach, CA @ a studio. This particular shoot was so fun that I couldn't contain myself half of the time. We laughed & danced our way thru each clothing change!
We even had Leilani's good friend Joey Quenga (another musical artist) come thru to bring her a guitar and we fooled around on the photoshoot too! Look out for Leilani this year, she is working on some new things and I excited for whatever she puts out! Wish you the best this year Lei! Look forward to working with you again!
