Lilith - Senior Portraits - Capitol Hill, Seattle

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

Zach - Senior Portraits - Pioneer Square / Waterfront

Eeeek, I am the worst at blogging my sessions!

I photographed Zach in the fall on a Seahawks game day in Pioneer Square and it was SUPER busy. We somehow managed to make it look not so busy with moving and angling around the crowds :) We also found this cool pop-up art piece that was a giant mirrored object that has since vanished.

He is such an intelligent and nice young man. He’s taking a ton of advanced/AP classes and working part time while still in high school! With his work ethic and good attitude, he’s going to go far.

Gabby - Senior Portraits - King St. Station / Pioneer Square

Had a wonderful time getting to hang out with my senior Gabby. It was such a crisp, beautiful end of winter / early Spring day to capture her senior portraits. We went with a glam meets chill city vibe for her shoot because that's exactly who Gabby is. A girl who loves fashion & dressing up, but also loves a relaxed, chill time with friends and cozy clothing. Gabby is thinking of doing something with fashion in College (potentially in Cali). Gabby is friends with my past senior Rosa. They both are finishing their senior year at Seattle Preparatory School.

While she was getting her makeup & hair done, I kept thinking "OMG she looks like a baby Britney Spears!"... AMIRITE? Gabby looked stunning and so freakin' adorable in her outfit choices I helped her pick. She got two pairs of new shoes for the sessions which thankfully turned out perfect and fit great. I love that she accessorized with her favorite earrings (hoops) and some fun geometric rhinestone ones for the second look.

We headed to King Street Station with its gorgeous white walls, high ceilings, ornate crown molding, pretty light fixtures and lovely marble tiles. After we wandered over to one of my go-to coffee shops for a modern look to my sessions, the Cherry Street Public House. Absolutely love the interiors and light in there! After a little coffee pick me up, we finished off her session we some VERY Seattle shots of her loungin' in her boss lady look.

Cheers to you Gabby & your bright future, girly!
