These two are the most amazing couple. Ryan and Lia are Heavy Birds, a music duo with Ryan on guitar and vocals and Lia on the cello. Their music is a dreamy a haunting melody woven around guitar distortion and Ryan’s voice. It plays out the more serious side of these two otherwise funny and warm people.
I first met them through a writer friend who slings liquor at Superfine and collects a harem of men like Cleopatra (played by Elizabeth Taylor maysherestinpeace). They’re sweet and sexy and so much in love you can taste it in the air when their together. We started late on a Tuesday. I asked them to brig their favorite clothes for lounging and for going out and then pointed them in the general direction of my props and costumes. We drank a couple of bottles of red wine and I photographed them being in their own little world. For someone is, apparently, terminally single, they are everything I aspire to in a relationship. They inspire each other and create together and after five years they still have trouble keeping their hands off each other. It’s truly awesome to be around.So they played dress up and I made chicken soup form scratch and baked fresh bread and we drank more and ate and talked about music and all in all it was a fabulous evening. So thanks again my lovelies and here’s the first retouch.
