Sydney - Capitol Hill - TCM Models

Sydney is such a sweetheart and a fantastic model + human. This was our second time working together. Her good energy, warmth and beautiful smile make her a pleasure to work with. I had this idea to accentuate Sydney’s super cool afro with some flowers and incorporate my love of plants in the session as well :)

Sydney just started streaming on Twitch and we chatted about that and her nursing schooling and more while sipping our delicious bubble tea at Atulea, a lovely new tea shop near my apartment.

The owners of Atulea are SOOO sweet and really care about their customers and the quality of beverages they offer. They remember my boyfriend and I by name which to me is a big deal! Their interior design skills are on point. I was silly and didn’t get enough good photos to include, but trust me, the drinks and environment are so great :)

It was so nice to do some new creative work, can’t wait to do some more!

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.

Lauren - Senior Portraits - Olympic Sculpture Park

Lauren is just too cute and she has such a beautiful smile. She is going to be graduating from Shorecrest Highschool this coming year. She loves singing and music (she is in the choir at school) and loves hiking and being outdoors. She’s a self proclaimed “nature freak!” which is so perfect for where we live here in the PNW. I thought the Olympic Sculpture Park would be a perfect location for her session. I love how these turned out and I think the images really emphasize her personality, casual style and love of the outdoors. It was a pleasure meeting Lauren and her mom, Lynn. It’s such a privilege to work with such a sweet, kind and close knit family!
