Eric and I do our best to surround ourselves with friends who share similar values, especially creativity. We have found that many of these friends dabble in a variety of creative outlets. Settling for one is just plain snooze-ville. I bet if you asked any visionary about their interests, hobbies and sources of income you would see a mixture of sources. They can’t stop at one, it’s not in their blood. So why am I bringing up this topic you ask? Well … because filling our creative well-being is something we talk about ALL THE TIME. We already spend a lot of time sharing our portrait photography work, but with the explosion of social media we now have a platform to display what other things make us tick. Custom succulent arrangements, reviewing music, dreaming up DIY projects, graphic design, home design and interior decorating/thrifting are just a few on our long list of stuff we wouldn’t mind making a few more buckaroos doing. It’s important for us to sharpen many different tools, cause you just never know where life’s going to take you!
For today’s headshot session we have the pleasure of featuring the sociable Julie Rustad. The goal for her shoot was to showcase an approachable happy artist. Remember what I mentioned above about having many creative tools in the air, well Julie is quite the juggler. A graphic designer, musician, wife, mother and most recently creator of Julie Originals – Fine Art Gifts. Umm yeah, she’s got her hands full!
