Jazz artists comes in all types. Bassist, Guitarist and Vocalist Sonia Flores.

Jazz Portriats usually presented in black & white. Pin-up just does not translate well in that format.

Can you tell I really love shooting with balloons?

Most Jazz portraits thus far have been presented in B&W. Sometimes, colors are just better, at least in this case.

It isn’t often that one gets to brag about shooting a wedding as part of a parade. I am not sure how often weddings in parades are done, the latest one being the gay wedding at the Rose Parade. Nevertheless, this one occurred in League City’s 16th Annual Holiday in the Park Grand Night Parade Wedding. The parade organizers sponsored the winning couple a dress fitting session (free dress), bridal photographer session (and wedding photography) and other goodies. While I was not the official photographer, I got to cover the fitting and the parade for the newspaper.

A special note about the weather — It was the coldest on record for the evening.

We did a similar shoot a few years ago for Tianna Hall‘s CD “Ballads and Bossas”. But it is a new location and a new purpose.

No better reason to drop by the studio than needing photos of a new 7 string custom made Benedetto Guitar.

Have not done these in a while. A new home for the studio helped get the mood back.

As it so happens, the great jazz drummer and vibes man Tom Cummings is in town (back from Canada) for a studio session with Blue Bamboo Music. A Christmas album with Chris Cortez and Tianna Hall, which I am nominally (photographically speaking) involved as well.

We have been wanting to do a photo shoot for more than five years. It finally happened. Looking forward to our next session!
