Some of us were born
With music in our veins
Where even silences
Between notes are felt
And the words pulse through
Our very souls
As the rhythms of life
Beat through our hearts
And sweet melodies
Play in our minds
– Christie L. Starkweather
Music is a big part of who I am.
Growing up, we were surrounded by music – LPs, cassettes, CDs, seriously talented friends and family… there was always music. This of course inspired both my brother and I to pursue our own musical talents.
My parents definitely deserve a badge of honour, since they had to endure their kids learning keyboard, guitar and, gasp, drums!! I say that we were still kind, since we never subjected them to the recorder!
Of course, once their kids had gotten the hang of their chosen instruments, they joined bands and duets which involved said parents having to drive us around to practices and gigs… Wow, we really need to get them that badge!
But, I digress.
This photoshoot was something that I knew that I wanted to do from when I first started working as a photographer. Luckily for me, I knew some very talented musicians that I could persuade to act as models….
Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you my wonderfully talented brother and sister-in-law!
So, if you are looking for a photographer passionate about music to capture you, look no further. You have found her. I’m right here!
