My, oh my. Seattle, you gorgeous grungy girl. It’s no secret that Seattle’s heart matches her landscape….grey grungy mood with tattered textures. There’s a reason why Nirvana’s music is so rad (and yes, Kurt Cobain deserves all the credit, with a hint of a nod to Seattle’s influence). I was over the moon when Rachelle […]

Seniors are seriously some of my favorite clients. They are shy, yet outgoing…normally up for anything I ask them to do, like climb out on rocks, stand in the ocean etc. I only take on a few seniors during the crazy wedding season but they are always worth it! Make sure if you’re the class […]

While walking through Discovery Park in Seattle, it’s hard not to giggle with Russell and Jillian. Russell has a silliness about him that is too tempting not to join in and Jillian is his perfect partner in crime.
