The Rightly So - Band Portraits - UW Arboretum

The Rightly So comprise of Greg + Jess, a pair of fantastic Americana folk musicians from Buffalo, NY. I was honored to photograph when their tour brought them here to Seattle.

These two are basically living the American dream. They travel around the country together in their huge white van they’ve affectionately dubbed “The Beast”. They play 100+ shows each year, managing & booking all their own tour. Jess is the singer & songwriter while Greg plays guitar. They are a super kind, fun & interesting couple.

I thought a natural background near the forest would be great for their session setting, so I suggested the UW Arboretum. It worked perfectly for their musical and personal style. This was my first time doing promotional band portraits, so there was a bit of a learning curve for me, but I had a lot of fun working with them!

They’re headed back home this summer to finish their next album. So glad to have met you two and hope to catch a show next time you are in town!


Madi - Model - Seattle

It took almost 2 years or rescheduled shoots, but I finaaaaaaalllly got to work with the stunning Madi. She is an accountant by day and super talented model by night! Like, what? Give me your accounting AND modeling skills. That’s a girl to look up to! Smart, beautiful & full of body + personal confidence. Super inspired by her.

She just got her hair touched up into this neon orange that reminded me of Leeloo in the Fifth Element 😍 I was watching my boyfriend’s niece’s dog who wouldn’t stop barking. He came along with us for a walk and even joined in on the shoot! 😂

I was so happy that Spring had sprung that day on Capitol Hill and we caught the cherry blossoms blooming!

Lilith - Senior Portraits - Capitol Hill

Excited to share my senior portrait session with the lovely Lilith from last June! We shot around my neighborhood on Capitol Hill on a busy Saturday.

This girl was so naturally good at posing and smiling! :) I like the casual summery vibe these have.

I can’t wait for this time of year again and to experience that sunshine and warmth when shooting with my clients, it’s been so bloody freezing at my last few sessions!

Hair + makeup, as always, by the fabulous Sophia Hutch
