Having friends in a band is a pretty cool thing, because sometimes they think that you are cool enough with your big fancy camera to take their photos. What they don’t know is that in the world of blog land everyone has a big fancy camera and I’m not actually as cool as I pretend to be. But, moving right along..
Nate and I met up with Josh and Phlecia Sullivan, the sweet newlywed couple behind Year of October, in downtown Lexington Saturday evening for a super laid back band photo shoot. They have another band mate, Seth Sizemore, who I jokingly said I would photoshop into the photos since he couldn’t make it- but guess what Seth? I don’t feel like it and you should just make it to your band’s photo shoots. ;] Phelcia, Josh (aka Sully), and Seth live in Nashville and are pursuing their dream of making it big. Stories, their new “bluesy” folk rock album is currently available for listen and download here!
This was really a lot of fun for me because while I absolutely love photography, I’m not the best at directing people on how to pose or stand, so I’m not extremely confident in my ability to take photos in this type of setting. Thankfully I think they liked how the pictures came out and I don’t feel like a failure! Hooray. :] And honestly, how could Phelcia not photograph well – right? I know. (You too, Sully!)
