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, 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

Amelia - Model - Long Beach, California

Amelia is basically a real life Disney princess, AM I RIGHT? She is English & Egyptian and has the loveliest English accent.

We spent a fun evening in Long Beach, California shooting around the waterfront and the lighthouse beach park. It was a gorgeous late Spring evening at golden hour. I really wanted to highlight her beautiful skin and get a nice added glow to sparkle in the sunshine. I liked the juxtaposition of the harsher sun light mixed with the warmth of golden hour by the beach. I also wanted to add in some 1960s Italian screen siren vibes with the wardrobe.

She and her boyfriend drove down from LA and I’m so grateful that they did so we could work together finally! We had been meaning to shoot together when she lived in Seattle but it worked out shooting her in her new home area. Thanks so much for being such a fun model & a total sweetheart, Amelia!
