Malibu resident Danica Perez has worn many hats: mother, model, actress, photographer, and TV producer. Her photography has been featured in Town and Country, InStyle, Santa Barbara Magazine, and L.A. Confidential. Her most notable project to date was 2005’s “The Glow: A Journey to Motherhood,” a book she wrote, produced, and photographed to celebrate the miracle of birth. After years of being footloose and fancy-free she is now headed to Fiji for her next big photography project.

Alaïa, Dior, Chanel, Valentino, Alexander McQueen …I love them all. They understand how to make a woman feel gorgeous.
