Dragondeer at the Bluebird Theater

Dragondeer is a psych-blues band from Denver, Colorado whose singular, reverb drenched take on old school blues and soul coupled with inspired improvisation has the band making fans in roots circles as well as indie clubs across Colorado and beyond. I first caught them at Frozen Dead Guy Days in Nederland, CO and couldn't wait to see them again. I am so thankful they let me come to their show at the Bluebird Theater in Denver and shoot their fantastic set. These guys rock, end of story. 

Roslynn in Cherry Creek

First shoot of the New Year! I've been having a lot of mixed feelings toward this year thus far (yes, 10 days in). Although it's not difficult to surpass the nervous breakdown that was 2016, I've been feeling an immediate sense of anxiousness to correct all of 2016's undoings at once. Without fail, it's depleted my creative energy into a paralyzed worry. I've been drawing inspiration from one singular thought - create with heart, not hustle. This shoot was exactly what I needed to kick it off. My dear Roslynn was one of my first new best friends when I moved to Denver, and she has yet to disappoint (especially in fashion choice). After a couple glasses of wine and digging through the pile of (mostly Madewell) clothes, we put together a cozy, comfortable street-style wardrobe to parade around my neighborhood. Roslynn was fun and fearless in front of the camera, especially for her first time modeling, and I'm so pleased how these turned out!
