Something old and something new. That’s how I’d describe this post. New being that I recently had the very delightful opportunity to meet and get to know Gabe Williams and Chanelle Sinclair, husband and wife duo of the local band, The Bear and the Bird. I can’t begin to tell you how sweet and genuine these two are. Gabe and Chanelle have been playing together for more than a year now and met through a mutual love of music. In fact, on the day of our shoot, they were celebrating their one-year anniversary of being married. Gabe also plays and sings in the Phoenix-based band, Bears of Manitou, and Chanelle is a professional photographer. Talk about talent! But they are as humble as can be, easygoing and kind. You’ll find that their music reflects their, lack for a better word, awesome personalities. Not to mention they are tremendous foodies and enjoy good whiskey. Can you tell I love these two? I encourage you to check them out.

And before I talk about the location – let me mention that I was beside myself that Gabe and Chanelle play a fantastic cover of The Tallest Man on Earth, a shared favorite musician. Even more exciting, Tallest Man will be playing at The Crescent Ballroom on Sept. 1. Hope to see you there! It will be a great show.

***And now for the old – Butter Toast Boutique. I happened upon this vintage shop during a leisurely stroll in the Roosevelt Row area one afternoon. I immediately fell in love with its charm, excellent taste in vintage clothing and drum roll…prices I can afford! Hard to find a good vintage store with all three. I want to say a special thanks to the owners, Traci Nelson and Jasmine Jarrett, for letting us shoot in this location. If you don’t get a chance to check this place out during its normal hours, stop by during a First Friday. And check out their site here.
