Robin Wilkins Smith, or the Disruptor Guru, is the creator of Audacious Life: the Podcast. In her inspiring podcasts, she interviews women from Fort Worth and beyond – women she deems audacious. She loves lipstick and all things fashion as much as she loves yoga and lifting weights. She’s a life coach, wife, mom, mover and shaker. You can find her teaching yoga at Indigo Yoga and in the community in clinical settings. She comes from a line of artists and paints for therapy. She’s unafraid to have difficult conversations about taboo topics such as addiction. For her shoot, I brought her over to the Brik Venue over in the Near Southside area, which offers a blend of glam and grit. I lived over in the Miller Lofts (oldbuilding.com) for years and walked the dog near what’s now the Brik and always thought “Someone should buy that building and turn it into something cool.” Thank you for turning it into something cool. Special thanks to Craftwork Coffee for making those beautiful lattes. And shout out to The Flower Market on 7th Street for having pink peonies out of season 😉
I have enjoyed getting to know Robin through this process. To capture her many facets has stretched me in the best way. I got to shoot medium format film (Kodak Portra 800) photography and digital with my Nikons, natural light and studio lights. Nothing makes me happier.
