Awhile back the talented Vivienne McMaster and I spent the day together.
I have always loved Viv's photography, but lately I've been loving what she's been doing with video (you have to check out her ecourse that she offers about making soulful videos - one class starts next week). Her work is quirky yet beautiful. Artsy yet smart. I admire the way she tells stories. And so I asked if she would be up for creating a video for me, and I was DELIGHTED when she said yes.
We spent an entire afternoon in and around my studio and she took photos and videos of the studio, of me, of my cowgirl boots, of my paints, and more. There was dancing involved. And skipping. And other ridiculous silly fun.
Then she spun her magic and created a lovely video that helps tell the story of who I am, and what I'm about. I l.o.v.e how it turned out and wanted to share it with you....
(Video is just shy of 3 mins....watch the whole thing. There's a treat at the end :)
The other huge gift from our day together was all the amazing shots she took. I have written before about what it feels like to have your photo taken (a little bit scary). In fact, I just re-read this post about getting my pregnant belly photographed and everything I wrote then about the gift of seeing ourselves through the lens of someone else is still so true. This is such a gift that photographers give us. I am crazy grateful.
Huge thanks to Viv. I'm feeling so lucky about the new video (and photos!)! I'm thinking the video is going to look lovely on my newly updated website...Thank you, Viv! And big thanks to Kerry Loeschen who created the music. If you're looking for a musician, he's your guy :)
