Personal work is giving me a chance to train and grow as a photographer. For now, I’m starting small - simple, sincere portraits at someone’s home with (hopefully) a more creative feel. Ariel was one of the first people I thought of when I imagined one of these sessions. We put on music, moved all her furniture around and talked about life and the campy horror movie Idle Hands. Always the mark of a good day.
We were sitting in the back of Cap City Comedy Club on a Sunday evening when MK Paulsen first told me he had a crazy idea for baby photos - specifically, a Celine Dion inspired newborn session, but instead of a baby…a Chipotle burrito.
A few months later, MK, Ella and I sat around my dining room table eating Chipotle and combing through newborn photos for ideas. That evening was a blast and I hope the photos reflect the fun we had. Check out the entire session here: burritomakesthree.com
Andrew is a busy guy. Besides being a badass at karaoke, he’s the host of a weekly news web series for the University of Texas, The Hook. He’s also a member of Master Pancake, a comedy fixture at the Alamo Drafthouse. If you’ve never been to a Master Pancake show and you live in Austin, fix this now! I saw Master Pancake presents Showgirls like 5 years ago and it was a life-changing experience.
Anyways, Andrew is one of those clearly talented people that you honestly don’t know where they’re going next because they can basically do anything (including make music and do stand up).
This is the first of two sessions we had in March. At the end, his friend Lucy jumped in for a couple photos. Love!
