April Kimble's boots. May 2008. Austin, Texas. ©Allison V. Smith

I photographed April Kimble (Lyle Lovett's girlfriend) in May for Texas Monthly's fashion magazine. She was incredibly sweet & sincere which made the photo shoot a breeze! We immediately bonded over our mutual respect for photographer Michael Wilson (note: he has shot most of Lyle's albums. I can recognize his style from across the room!) And then I saw her boots.... how kick butt would that be to have a pair with Allison V. Smith stitch into them.

those boots are from lee miller at texas traditions in austin, boots take a year to make and there is a waiting list. ironically i just had my fitting for a pair after being on the wait list for 4 years. next summer i get my boots. strange but true.
