My parents came for a visit this summer, and my boys were very excited to spend time with them! Ever since I was a little girl, I remember my dad wearing cowboy boots. Those were his dress shoes. So when they arrived at our house, it was no surprise that my dad was wearing his cowboys boots with a white shirt and tie. And it was also not a surprise that my boys wanted their own pairs. My mom thought it was an excellent idea, so off to the store we went and got them each their own pair. Then, because Papa wears rugged Wrangler shirts, they sent the boys a couple shirts of their own. I decided this was a perfect opportunity to have a little fun, and found them each a cowboy hat to go along with their new midwest appropriate attire. And then, in true photographer fashion, I dressed them up, took them to the park and had them pose :)
While I'm not a money making professional anymore, I like to think of myself as a hobbyist professional. Which is code for poor artist who makes no money! Haha but I still love taking pictures, and I'm always up for a fun collaboration with some of my very favorite artists! A couple weeks ago I got together with Angie and Sydney, and met Jess Mart, a makeup artist, to create some photographic art. The original idea was to have extreme avant garde looks, but time and money are not always on our side. Although, we still sure did great with what we had I think! And what a bonus to find some rogue grapes growing in the woods!
And it paid off! We have never had a set go unpublished, and this set was no exception. It has been featured in Duende Magazine for their September 2017 issue. We are very excited to have been included :) Stay tuned for images from our latest shoot, being published later this month and next!
Being a professional photographer was some of the best time of my life.
