Meet Luke and David. These guys make beautiful knives. Their business is named Bloodroot Blades, and they have been featured on Design*Sponge, Beauty Everyday, Food and Wine, as well as some others. They have some pretty major magazine features coming out in print soon, and they contacted me to shoot some lifestyle and personal photos of them. I'll keep you guys posted on all that. It is super exciting and I am really proud of their well-deserved success. I always love working with these guys, not only because they are insanely talented but because they are amazing, and so are their families. It is a gift to call these people my friends.
Taken from their website:
Bloodroot Blades builds quality artisan kitchen knives and other tools designed for everyday use. We employ as many recycled, personal, handmade, and local materials as possible without sacrificing the durability and functionality of the tool. It is our goal to manage our shops, resources, and waste in a way that acknowledges that our relationships with our neighbors are vital as is our relationship with the land. We stand behind our work with an unconditional, lifetime warranty and free maintenance.
I love shooting this type of material. I want to do more print and editorial work, especially lifestyle and food styling. This is one of the reasons I love shooting weddings-- the details, the emphasis on community, beauty, and food. I am really, really happy and thankful to say that some of my images from the Athens Farmer's Market will be printed in Where to Retire Magazine at the end of this month. I look forward to what is in store for my work as a photographer.
A little about where I am at... we are settled into our new home and loving it. I have a deep sense that this is going to be a season of healing and new life. I am in the process of getting Piper enrolled in pre-K, and she is so excited about starting school in the fall. I am eager to begin a new sewing project with Tyler, my best friend who lives upstairs. I need to photograph her space as well because it is amazing. I'll do that soon. I have a little bit of a lull work-wise before the craziness of wedding season begins in March. I plan to spend the time with my daughters, making space to grieve the end of my marriage, and creating.
love to y'all
