If you know me at all, you know that music is a huge part of who I am. It is part of the fiber that makes me this quirky, passionate, intense, and emotional person. I feel things very deeply and I love that about myself -- and music has so much to do with the person that I've always been... with that being said, one of the most exciting projects I've ever worked on is getting to do a CD cover for recording artists whose music touches me so deeply. And such a CD made its way into my hands today and I could not be more excited!!
So, a little history -- Robert and I will tell you that we fell in love at the Mona Lisa in Manitou Springs many years ago -- I can remember the date, the food, the wine.... it was all so very perfect and it was that evening that we both "knew" that our lives were destined to be together forever... the best night of my life... And then last year, it was at that same place where we met Vivian Gail and Doug Zinn and as Vivian's voice enchanted the entire place, I cried. And that's nothing unusual when I hear beautiful music, but still today, I still cry whenever I hear this voice that will rival any angel's. We were thrilled to get to work on their cd by doing the photography for it, and during a few meetings and late night photo sessions, Vivian's voice captivated our children as she sang them goodnight lullabies.... and I cried the whole time. :)
Below are some photos of the cd itself that I had to snap quickly today, as I was so ecstatic at its release. We are also THRILLED that Doug and Vivian are recording a "soundtrack" for our websites that will be completed in a couple of months. For now, you can hear some of the tracks we're using from the CD on our website -- http://www.intimaphotography.com/ features "Lover Man" which compliments the images in this sexy, sultry and passionate way. Also, on http://www.teresaleephotography.com/ you can visit the "Babies & Children" Gallery to hear the incredible arrangement of "Over the Rainbow" and the "Engagement" and "Weddings" Galleries feature "What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life."
If you are interested in purchasing one of the CD's, titled "Smile," we are helping them to promote it and you can order it in the Client Section of our website under Products for $17 (includes $2.00 shipping charge). It will also be available in March at Barnes & Noble in Colorado Springs.
Congratulations to Doug and Vivian for creating a great piece of art, and thanks so much for letting us capture these images for your project.
