I have known Nicki for years… we used to all hang out and she would start playing on the piano / guitar and singing and I was always left totally speechless. She is a beautiful, sweet lady with unbelievable amounts of talent. And she sings like a dream. An old-school west-coast dream. Think Laurel Canyon in the 60’s & 70’s… And then she went and put an awesome band together (Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, follow them here on facebook) and sharing her immense talent with the world… If you have not yet heard her music, I highly recommend checking it out here. You can also watch tons of live video clips here on youtube.
I was so excited when she asked me to do a shoot with her for her next album. Nicki lives in San Fransisco now but was coming down for a few days and so we scheduled the shoot. She also happens to be married to one of the most talented guys in the business, Tim Bluhm of The Mother Hips. Incidentally she was a huge Mother Hips fan and had a crush on Tim for years before she even met him! Those two lovebirds make giant epic beautiful sounds together.
All these photos were taken at our mutual friends Mark & Kristen Murino’s gorgeous home in San Diego.

Another Holga shot below.
My absolute favorites!
Too many favorites to name them all but I really love love love the first hazy holga shot but all of these are so damn gorgeous!! Not sure if she’s using these for the actual CD but if she is I wonder how the heck she is going to choose which ones to use… if it was me I’d want to put different images in different cd’s so I could use them all or just have it come with a book of the images so I wouldn’t have to decide…
Incredible, beautiful woman, beautiful light, beautiful images…

These pictures are beautiful! I was lucky enough to be introduced to Nicki’s music the other day on a Facebook share. I’m hooked! You captured her beauty and voice (without it being heard) perfectly! Do you photograph other people as well? For a fee? I recently survived Breast Cancer and would like some photos done in the future once my hair grows back, 🙂 I love the peaceful, soothing tone of your photos. Hope this finds you well! 🙂
