I met this guy Cameron while on tour in Texas with Loud Harp over a year ago… He was playing a violin with Aaron Strumpel, a violin that he made himself. He is a fellow craftsman and artist and recently got engaged to a lovely lady named Alex who is an artist and all around maker also. Well I had some time off and had a location in mind for shooting a couple so we made it happen… although we were pulling for an amazing sunset, it was heavily overcast. But still, was a fun time. Here are a few of my favorites.
I had a small booth set up with my woodworking items at a Spring Market in Denver recently and this sweetheart walked up to me and asked if I did maternity portraits. My instant reaction was that of hesitation because things can get cheesy really quick when it comes to these kinds of shoots. But Julie was so sweet about it that I just couldn’t say no. She said that she was familiar with my portrait work and that was all I really needed to hear, that gave me permission to be myself and shoot the way I see. That is the best thing for an artist to hear.
Jill Carter met up with Julie and helped set her up with wardrobe and a bit of make up. Julie was gorgeous and a joyful mom to be. I loved the shoot. Heres a few of my favorites.
Ms. Bonnie Gregory is one talented lady. She is quite gifted as a singer songwriter and also visual artist. I spend a couple hours with her one day last fall and took some photos. I also had a little lesson in welding which was pretty awesome. She builds tables and other things for people and business in the Denver area. I always look forward to seeing the latest piece she’s made.
She tends to post welding work on her Instagram here.
And you can find her charming music here.
