Learning about Parce Rum with owner, Brian Powers

The buzz around Parce rum has only increased since its launch. People are embracing the essence of Colombia, celebrating and relaxing themselves with summer’s hottest spirit.

~ I recently had a very interesting shoot with Brian Powers, one of the owners of Parce Rum.  Brian proudly told me that Parce just made #1 on the list of best rums in the world by Town & Country Magazine. Pretty cool. The story behind Parce – even cooler. I can’t begin to retell the story and some day you too might be lucky enough to sit with the owners, taste their amazing rum and hear the story of its origination.  

So many fascinating details but, in a nutshell, the company started during the celebration of life of their father at the family Finca in Columbia (former property of Pablo Escobar!). 

Pearce means “good friend” in Columbia and the family continues to plant one tree for every bottle of Parce sold. 

“Magical Scraps Boutique” Photo Shoot

I absolutely love MaryAnne’s shop & studio in Breckenridge. Not only does she make amazing kids clothing right in the store on her sewing machine, she also really unique products from other artists as well. So, when the opportunity arose to photograph her clothing line and capture some new summer images formarketing, I jumped at the chance.  I had a ton of fun photographing these two little 7 year old models!  http://www.magicalscraps.com/


With models like Justine Spence, Jess Cumming and Tatum Monod, photographing for Orage Clothing was a breeze. Not only could these gals all rip on skis, they were a lot of fun and didn’t mind me pointing a camera in their faces for two days straight. Thanks Ladies! Here are a few shots from our days at Keystone Resort.
