Bethany - The Studio Photo Shoot (Look #1)

Bethany is a brilliant singer, actress, and I think I can now add to that list - my friend. She's based here in Houston and we collaborated on this shoot a couple of weeks ago. A selection of photos from the first part of our shoot follow below & my suggestion is that you hit the play button below to hear her amazing voice as you scroll through the gorgeous photographs from our session.

I'd like to say thank you to a few people who helped to make this shoot happen:

And not the least of all, a big giant thank you to Bethany McCade - for being a fantastic model, doing her own hair & makeup and being an excellent collaborator on this shoot. Thank you Bethany, could not have done this without you! 

 Stay tuned for Look #2.

Mueva Coffee

I had the pleasure of photographing Josely Yuko of Mueva Coffee several weeks ago at their new location right beside Paper Co. in the Ecclesia building at 1100 Elder Street. It has been a busy couple of weeks and I am now just getting to share these photographs about one of my favorite things with you. It was a beautiful Tuesday afternoon and a good day to learn a bit more about what goes into creating this awesome thing we call coffee!

Mueva curates and roasts coffee sourced directly from the farmers in Nicaragua and around the world. Their specialty house brand is Café Diego from Nicaragua, specifically from the rainforest of the Matagalpa Highlands and is grown by Josely's family.

Thanks for the coffee roasting lesson Josely and for the Café Diego roast sampler! Now go order some coffee from them right away … it'll help with the cold weather outside! :-)
