Sierra - Senior Portraits - Golden Gardens, Seattle

Ahhhh, summer, how I'll miss thee. Featured below is my last senior portrait session of the summer! Bracing myself for the coming sessions the next 2 months with more Fall / Seattle weather!

Sierra was such a sweetheart. Very soft spoken and kind. She spent a lot of her summer at Stanford doing a special summer learning program, so you know this girl is SUPER smart and beautiful! Sidenote: her eyebrows are amaaaaaaziiing, though! MY GOODNESS!

Sierra kept her looks very casual and chill which suited her natural beauty and the beachy vibe of Golden Gardens perfectly. She and her mom had never been there so it was a treat to show her my favorite areas around the park/beach.

I wish her the absolute best luck at college next year, you're gonna kill it, Sierra!

Suzanne Heyn- Spirituality + Meditation Coach- Personal Branding

Suzanne Heyn is such a magical lady. She is a meditation and spirituality coach and yoga instructor. She offers online courses for those looking to inwardly heal themselves through meditation, journaling, yoga practice and more. Suzanne has an incredible gift for writing and the ability to help people create change in their lives. She is a cancer survivor as well.

We planned her branding portrait session almost 6 months ago and had to reschedule 4 different times due to weather (cheers, Seattle). SO many times that it felt like we'd never meet! But we finally did, and what a gorgeous summer day it was! We wanted a session style and location that would go well with her branding colors and business type + mood.

Suzanne chose to have her session at my favorite Seattle beach, Golden Gardens, at golden hour where everything is super glowy and lovely. Golden Gardens is a perfect, dynamic setting for a portrait session because it has a water front, beautiful beach areas, grass, a mini forest of thin, straight trees and a marina. It was a super windy day and the chill definitely affected our shooting a bit, but overall, Suzanne is a total trooper and awesome subject! Thanks so much Suzanne for going with all the idea I had. I absolutely love how these images turned out and I feel they totally reflect her brand and personality.
