RARE Behind the Scenes Pictures of Clinton and Trump

Personal

Considering the Republican Party candidate is a reality TV star and the Democratic candidate has been in the public eye for decades, it’s remarkable how little we know about who they really are.  That’s why it was so gratifying that Lindsay Docherty Photography was granted special access to the candidates while they did something unusual – spent the morning together.  Scroll down to see how well red and blue played with one another.

The action between the camera takes is where the punches are thrown.  Trump berated Clinton for being a “Liar, liar, pants on fire!!” and insisted that he would put her in time out if elected.  Clinton held her composure and let out a shimmy here and there while thinking about Trump’s basket of adorables.

Each had the opportunity to test drive the big seat in the Oval Office.

He asked for a photo op with all of the female interns to show how much he loves and respects women.

Hillary still doesn’t seem to have a firm grasp on how this whole email thing works.  Donny was in the corner tweeting at Miss Piggy.  The actual Miss Piggy.

When asked what she thought of the book, Hillary declined to comment for fear of offending the author.  Or the readers.  Or really anyone.  When Donny was asked, he claimed he wrote the book and that it was great, REALLY great.

Against the backdrop of Independence Hall in Philly, Trump and Clinton played side by side.  Hillary suggested they share a snack. She was craving Mexican, which Trump refused while he crawled to add more blocks to his wall.

After snack, Hillary noticed a yuuuuge smell and blamed it on Donny. Donny, calling her a nasty baby, and not one to take criticism well, reminded Hillary that she has been making the same smells for ages. She said she was happy to compare her last “this many” years to his, and snuck away for a quick pantsuit change.

The two paid a visit to the founding fathers.  Hillary felt the steely glances of the old, white men.

Donny was infuriated to hear that the Constitution was also something that applies to him.  His baby hands shook with anger as he rubbed his eyes and asked for his binky.  “This playdate is rigged!” he wailed.

Naptime neared and both candidates clearly needed some rest.  Hillary waited for Trump to fall asleep first to prove her stamina.  She collapsed soon after.

I was honored to be chosen as the official photographer for these intimate moments between little Hillary Clinton and wee Donny Trump.  Don’t forget to go out and VOTE tomorrow!

Happy [belated] Mother’s Day!
I didn’t post on Mother’s Day because I was in Scotland. Even better, I was in Scotland with my mom on Mother’s Day. The death of my uncle didn’t make the circumstances ideal, but I was glad to see her and some of the family. My family is a bit… quirky. I suppose when the family has 12 children (Scottish and Catholic, go figure) there is bound to be a degree of peculiarity. Some are on speaking terms, some aren't. There is giving and taking and laughter and frustration. It was so good to spend an evening together. Conversations ranged from the macabre to general catching up to scandalous but it felt quite us - no holds barred, no ...

VH1’s The Shot and some more underwater photography
So I don't watch tv at all; I don't even have cable. But a few of my photographer friends were talking about a new show on VH1 called The Shot, which is something akin to America's Next Top Model (so I've been told). The twist is that it's from the other side of the lens and the photographers are all pitted against each other for a chance at a Victoria's Secret campaign and a spread in Marie Claire. I've actually started watching it on my computer – which is great because there are no commercials.Anyway, the last show featured the budding photographers taking pictures of a model underwater in beautiful dresses. It is something I would lov ...

Lindsay Docherty Photography goes to ‘Nawlins
Winter is the time when I can finally breathe again after the madness of fall and the gazillions of weddings that it brings. I use the winter to deal heavily with the advertising/marketing/business end of it all. It’s also when I have the opportunity for professional education. There’s a photography conference in mid-January and I look forward to it every year.This year the Digital Wedding Forum Convention was held in New Orleans. It gathers some of the biggest rock stars of the industry for small classes, shootouts (not nearly as dangerous as it sounds), mentoring sessions, and an all-around good time. A group of us went out and played ...
