Patiently waiting for scans of a private session I photographed recently. Hair, makeup, Midtown class, the WORKS! Dream stuff! So in honor of what I can’t show you, here is some thing I haven’t shown you. A little Memphis grit, for ya grind.
After Courtney told me she was decorating her nursery with elephants, all I could think about was how great the zoo would be for her shoot! I love how versatile it can be for providing great opportunities to have a good time with whatever you are doing there. ( plus, ELEPHANTS!) Courtney herself is probably one of THE cutest “mama-to-be”. Her little boy showed us how great life can be even before he officially arrived. I’m grateful we had the opportunity to create together on this, because the zoo holds a special place for me and I delight in any chance to return. (especially if FILM is involved!)
Now, on to the post…. It’s jam packed with light and love and wonder for what is to come…
“When I set a glass prism on a windowsill and allow the sun to flood through it, a spectrum of colors dances on the floor. What we call “white” is a rainbow of colored rays packed into a small space. The prism sets them free. Love is the white light of emotion. It includes many feelings which, out of laziness and confusion, we crowd into one simple word. Art is the prism that sets them free, then follows the gyrations of one or few. When art separates this thick tangle of feelings, love bares its bones.

One of the best parts about my time in college is walking away with a group of talented artists as friends. Here, an artist threw a wedding shower for another artist, in the home of a couple of artist. Phew! That was a mouthful! With good food, good drinks, and great company, a wonderful time was bound to happen! Little details made this summer after noon party a relaxing success.
