Colleen Evalyn @ Forest Room 5

I still haven't found a bar I like in Denver...except Forest Room 5. If Moonrise Kingdom were a bar, this would be it. So it was there amongst its hand-hewn furnishings and mismatched seating that I photographed up-and-coming singer-songwriter Colleen, with Jules of local label Topo Designs by our sides. It's been a while since I got to shoot so freely. Days like these remind me how much I love being behind the lens, even though I'm keenly aware of how far I have to go.
