New York City Solo Trip

Ohhhhh my goodness. I am so late in posting these but whoa. WHAT A TRIP! I headed to NYC for the first time in September to sightsee, eat, dance Zouk, explore and visit my lovely friend Elizabeth. I stayed at her apartment in Bed-Stuy in Brooklyn.

It was one of the best weeks of my life. My first solo trip. The experience really helped me grow and be more comfortable traveling alone in a new city. I hope to travel outside of the country by myself in the next few years.

Fingers crossed I can go back to NYC in the Spring! There is still so much I have yet to explore.


Rosa - Senior Portraits- Pioneer Square + Seattle Waterfront

My senior portrait client Rosa is DROP DEAD FREAKIN' GORGEOUS! I had a wonderful time spending a day with her and exploring around Pioneer Square and the waterfront for her portrait session. I've never done a proper session in Pioneer Square so it was super fun to find all the beautiful details and historic buildings throughout the area. The fall leaves and changing colors really looked amazing.

We started the day at my apartment. I chatted with Rosa's amazing mom Alison while Rosa got glammed up with hair & makeup by the fantastic Sophia Hutch! I had a blast getting to know everyone better.

We went for a soft glam look and it looked so spectacular on Rosa. I really love when my clients choose my most premier portrait collection. Senior portraits become a very memorable and special experience with a full makeover (as well as exclusive products, the highest amount of final images + more)!

I love the 3 outfits that Rosa came up with for her session. It was fun giving her some ideas but she did 95% of it herself! That pink satin flare sleeve blouse was so so cool and fun to watch her move in.

Rosa loves fashion and wants to explore business as well after she graduates from Seattle Prep. She has modeled partially in Portland but wants to explore modeling further when she heads off to college, which I think would be a total no-brainer because she is gorgeous, has a great smile and super friendly and sweet personality! Rosa is Filipina, African American, and European. Such a beautiful young lady.

I am so lucky to have special clients like Rosa & her momma Alison. So grateful to have met you both!
