Ever had a photo taken of yourself? Ever wanted to retake a photo of yourself?

We’re all pretty hard on ourselves when it comes to our looks. But at the ArtWorks Center we’re hoping that our first gallery of 2015, which opened on Saturday and runs through Feb. 15, will prove that there’s something worth photographing in each of us.

Featuring Nick Adams, a Twin Cities-based photographer and Austin native, “Embracing You” is a series honoring women, and will be tied into this year’s Paint the Town Pink festivities. You can stroll through Adam’s show and see work by 2014 ArtWorks Festival artist Rayna Gasteiger during our normal business hours.

Nick Adams is a three-time international award-winning photographer and owner of two Minneapolis-based businesses. Born and raised in Austin, Adams excelled in pen and ink as a high school student but didn’t discover his passion for photography until he began studying communications and journalism at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

After working as a photojournalist for a small newspaper, he moved to Minneapolis and in 2009 opened his first business — Supreme Images Photography, a boutique studio specializing in high-end, one-of-a-kind portraiture for high school seniors and weddings. Shortly after, he opened Embracing You Boudoir Photography, creating opportunities for women to feel their best in front of the camera. In 2014, Adams was awarded “Twin Cities Professional Photographer’s Association Wedding Photographer of the Year.”

If you fall in love with his work (we have our suspicions), we have good news — you can book your own custom session. And you can feel even more awesome if you do so in the next six weeks: the Hormel Institute will receive 30 percent of the fee for each session Adams books during his show.
