Summer afternoons in the studio.

 

Ive been on the road for the last few months and, as much as I love exploring and seeing new places, Ive been a little sad that I havent had a single moment to get into the studio. Theres something really special about a place that's meant to be a home for creativity. Even if Ive had the worst week ever, walking through those doors makes my heart skip. The studio feels like a blank canvas... there’s just so much potential.

After settling in back home and shaking off some of my jet lag (one cup of coffee at a time), my friend Kara and I recently snagged some flowers from Sarah Jane Camancho, owner of Thatch Floral in Seattle, and dragged them up to the studio so we could play. Often, I go into photo shoots on a mission, with shots in mind, but Ive learned that its also important to schedule time in my life to just create while in the moment.

For this session, I made sure to grab my new HP Spectre before heading out the door and I’m glad I did. Being able to see my photos on that crystal clear HD screen helped me visualize the finished product and allowed me to show Kara the images in real time as I directed her between shots. Thanks to the Spectre’s battery design, I was even able to stay unplugged for the entire shoot. When I’m in the right place with the right people – and I remember to bring all the tools I need – good things happen. This little impromptu creative session was no exception. Can't wait to share more from this day with you!
