A few years back, my husband and I bought our first house and through the recommendation of a neighbor, hired Carol Freedman, interior decorator, to help us pull the house together. (Highly recommend Carol for interior decorating around the Bethesda, MD area!)
Fast forward a few years, and I’ve learned that Carol is hardly the only artist in her family. A couple months ago, I heard her son, Aaron Seeber, a jazz drummer, performing with his quartet (side note: my 4 year old son LOVED the music!), and Carol and I got to talking about photos for Aaron’s MySpace page and publicity images. And so it was that the three of us met at 7am this morning (when it was already humid and nearly 80 degrees). We even risked the wrath of the park’s grounds keepers, who helpfully informed us it was too early for drum playing in the park.
I’ll post more pictures later, but this was the one I saw on that little LCD screen at the park, and actually had to show Aaron and Carol right there. Then I had to come home and edit it, and well…the rest will come, but here’s my current favorite from the morning!
Thanks for meeting me so early — always nice to beat the heat!
