#AZCreatives: the local artists who inspire us

Through a mix of mediums, formats and perspectives local artists illuminate the unknown, color the previously black-and-white and add depth to our understanding of our surroundings, our lives, circumstances and more. Through our research process for the <i>Thought provokers</i> series we’ve come across so many works of art that have inspired us and we’d like to share some of those great examples of visual and performing arts, photography and other creative works with you below.

“Bird Set Free”. 30”x24”. Acrylic on canvas. Life changes, feelings, hopes, and brightness. Inspired by Sia’s song with the same title, this piece will forever remind me of this moment. Time to open wings and move forward. “And I don’t care if I sing off key I find myself in my melodies I sing for love, I sing for me I shout it out like a bird set free Now I fly, hit the high notes I have a voice, have a voice, hear me roar tonight You held me down But I fought back loud, oh There’s a scream inside that we all try to hide We hold on so tight, we cannot deny Eats us alive, oh it eats us alive, oh We hold on so tight, but I don’t wanna die, no.” ……………………… #azlotusart#bird#birdsetfree#sia#colors#bright#art#artist#artists#arte#ave#blessed#saturday#saturdaymorning#fly#arizona#sedona#phoenix#california#painting#painter

When I had my daughter a little over a year ago, figuring out gifts for birthdays and holidays became a breeze. I mean, who wouldn’t want a photograph of this cutie? She’s also the first Silhouette grandbaby. With two working photographers in the family, she’s in the running for #mostphotographedbaby Wishing a Happy Father’s Day to all the dad’s out there! Today we pause to celebrate and acknowledge your patience, care and sacrifice, but we hope you know we are grateful for you everyday! #fathersday2018 #daddyslittlegirl #familyrunbusiness #tucsonchildrensphotographer #tucsonchildrensportraits #tucsonbabyphotos #tucsonbabyphotographer #arizonachildrensphotographer #arizonachildrenportraits #silhouettephotoaz

I was talking with a friend today about passions, and it became wholly clear that while you can be passionate about many things, that doesn’t mean your gifts follow suit. There are so many facets to any passion, but I believe that when you finally make the decision to follow what you’re truly gifted in and at the end of the day, walking away from celebrating and excited – even on the bad days – that is when you know you’re following your truest calling. And with that said…I’m excited to start making that shift! Keep your eyes peeled friends! • • • • #phoenix #scottsdale #glendale #anthem #arizona #az #phoenixphotographer #scottsdalephotographer #glendalephotographer #anthemphotographer #engagementphotographer #weddingphotographer #maternityphotographer #azphotographer #arizonaphotographer #arizonaengagements #arizonaweddings #arizonamaternity #azengagements #azmaternity #azweddings #engagement #engagements #wedding #weddings #couples #anniversary #maternity #love

Want to know a session win? During this session, beach goer’s were coming up to this little family and telling them how awesome they looked, that they’re killin’ it!, that she looked like a mermaid! – You’d never know from the images from this session, but this was a SUPER crowded beach. How cool is it that we had such an encouraging audience!? It can feel so awkward to get in front of the camera, but to get such nice words from strangers certainly helped make this session so fun! – So cheers to kind humans who aren’t afraid to compliment others! #mermaid – – – – – – – – #trp #trisharosephotography #azphotography #arizonaphotographer #azphotographer #trpfamilies #beachplease #peoriaphotographer #phoenixphotographer #portraitphotographer #vacay #familyphotography #azfamily #azfamilyphotographer #westvalleymoms #scottsadlemom #scottsdalephotographer #raisingbabies #love #forever #californiavibes #photographeronvacay
