Cromano Quartet

Any creative will tell you that the best way to keep your juices flowing and your productivity up, is to surround yourself with talent that inspires you. And if you haven't heard anyone say that, I'm telling you now. From our first Starbucks meeting almost 2 months ago, I have had the privilege of rubbing shoulders, chatting up, and listening to the music of four incredibly talented musicians. Together, they make the Cromano Quartet and their much anticipated first album will be released this September. I got to pull out all my tricks and style to conceptualize their album photography with a lot of help from my friends at Casa Morelos : a nightclub and art gallery that served as the absolutely most perfect set for our shoot. (More on my work with them coming later) I also hung out with the quartet as well as the composers of the album, during their last recording session and took a slew of delicious black and whites I'll be sharing a bit later this week. For now, meet the talent behind Cromano Quartet, and I know you'll be itching to hear their alluring sound.

Family Ties

Tomorrow, boyfriend and I head out for our 10 day vacation to visit family in the wild west. (Idaho to be more specific...doesn't sound as wild now.) As I've been in a whirlwind moving into a new place, bidding my full time job at a private school farewell, and finishing edits for June photoshoots, I realized just how many families and soon-to-be-mamas I had in front of my lens this past month. Two families in particular were a sentimental treat to see and shoot once again. One made a pit-stop here from Germany, before continuing onto their sunkissed vacation in the Riviera Maya, and another came in from out of state for the weekend to capture their 2nd pregnancy. I felt flattered and fortunate, to have had both families now in front of my lens three times, documenting their love and growth. Let's go through the archives and watch these lovebirds grow: Starting with the Kunz Family.
