American Portraits, a Personal Stretch

A few weeks ago, I shot an intimate "Private Listening Session" for the very talented and ethereal Mara Hruby for the surprise release of her latest album, "Archaic Rapture." (check it out on iTunes). While we were waiting for Mara, I decided to capture a few portraits of the guests.

For me, I'm usually so focused on the job at hand, that personal work is an afterthought or something I find in a small moment on the job. I can't stress how important it is allow yourself to find these moments and take them while their available. Below are two of my favorite images, the rest are in the Latest Stories.
