When thinking about the next installment of our Screen Icons series, I kept coming back to Marilyn Monroe. I mean, how could you do a series called Screen Icons without doing Marilyn? I was kicking myself that we didn’t do it while I had my platinum hair, but then I remembered the sweet and youthful photos of her with her natural brown hair. Back when she was Norma Jean Baker.
On a relatively warm (relative being the key word) Seattle summer day, John, his lovely assistant Annie Rose, and I went to the beach to capture Norma Jean.
What a wonderful spirit she had. It’s no wonder that she became a legend.
John and I have had so much fun doing this series and are very excited to have been featured in the Ballard News Tribune!
Feel free to comment with your thoughts on Norma Jean. What is your favorite Marilyn moment?
