Enchanted Grounds long as I'm blogging here I have to say thank you to Joan at Enchanted Grounds Coffee Shop!

Both Joan and Pennysue (oh, I hope I spelled that right) are huge promoters of local Raton artists. The last few musicians I have photographed (and a few who's photos will be up shortly) are all playing this summer at the coffee shop. I so recommend that if you are reading this you check out the summer schedule (which I promise to post here) and take a listen to these musicians and check out the art. I've heard a few of them play and they are some pretty talented folks!

Not only that....but the ladies make a mean cup of coffee...and no joke, I'd rather have Enchanted Grounds coffee than a Starbucks anyday and twice on Sundays!

Thanks Joan for believing in me and hooking me up with all this talent! I hope I don't let you down!

just Daniel

I had the opportunity to photograph another local musician! Daniel was awesome and so much fun to photograph. He wanted a few shots that were not your ordinary "look at the camera and say cheese" photograph, which is always a blast. We got a few fun and funky ones and a few "safe" shots which really showcase his awesome blue eyes!

If you're interested in hearing him play, he'll be at Enchanted Grounds this weekend. Stop by and see him and get a great cup of coffee....(see my post above).

Superman is still coming. I think you're going to love it!

This young musician was fun, bubbly and very laid back. She has cool hair, a beautiful face and gorgeous eyes all making my job much easier! She brought both her guitar and her violin to the sessions, which I was afraid to touch...because I am very good at breaking things. But both escaped without incident. I got so many great's hard to pick the ones I want to post process first!

What a terrific time I had during this photo shoot. Thank you for putting up with me and being such a good sport! I hope you like your photos....more to come!
