I love working with artists…

I do.  It’s so fun to work with other creative folk.  I think sometimes it feels like we are all in headed in our own direction, and that’s part of the fun.  Maybe it’s who I am but I seem pulled toward creative folks.  Especially musicians.  And if you know me that’s kind of funny.  I don’t play any instrument (ok, I can rock a mouth harp, but I don’t know if that counts), and the bucket I used to carry a tune in sprung a leak.  But I married a singer.  Whoo-baby did I marry a singer!!  She wooed me with her voice back in high school (I don’t think she realized what she was doing at the time) and I have enjoyed an on going personal concert since.  But that’s a story for a different day…

What am I most excited about now?  This.  I should probably introduce them, cause there is an off chance someone out there besides my Mom, her sister and my Mother in law will read this.  Brent Johnson is the music pastor at our church.  He and his wife have been singing together since high school (sound familiar?) They both went to Lake Washington High School (my HS rival) but they are pardoned as my wife attended LW as well…  Small world huh?

He and his wife have just finished a praise and worship CD called “Presence” (release sometime mid February I think).  You can find out more about them here www.brentandceleste.com.  I will update the post with the album site once it’s up, so check back!!  My part started as a casual “would you take some pictures for us for our CD?” a few months ago.  “Sure”.

I had a lot of fun at the photo shoot (I’d go into the killer space they secured for the shoot, but I’ve already blown past my ‘talkin quota’ for today).  Probably too much fun.  To get a frame like the one below, I had to burn 5 or 6, cause SOMEONE couldn’t keep her their giggles under control.  Thy picked my favorite shot of the session and I worked up a comp for the CD cover.  Cami Blue (super talented graphic designer) did some typesettingtype magic for all the really important stuff and off it went to get pressed!  Cami is kind of like me (lots of plates in the air) and if you want to see what she’s been up to check out her blog here: http://alittlegraceandmercy.blogspot.com/

Here is another shot I liked, and stay tuned.  More info to come right here on this channel about the CD release party/service, as well as some more photos!  Thanks again Brent & Celeste for bringing me into this.  I truly have had a great time working with you both!
