ryan the great

Meet Ryan.  He plays tennis like a boss and rocks those piano keys in the band.  His sense of humor of is on point and he was SO easy to photograph!  My favorite part about our evening?  I barely had to help him prepare for a photo.  He was straight zoolander and just knew what to […]

and her middle name is joy

meet abby.  when I think about what a happy person looks like, she is one of the first people to come to my mind.  she…is just a giant ball of sunshiney joy no matter what is going on.  and I adore that about her. we joked about having her fly over from the states (like […]

life lines

it was a final project in my college photography course.  a series of images based on whatever we wanted to photograph and i chose hands.  not just “hands” as we see them but the emotion so visible in how we use our hands.  friends still make fun of me for it, for asking nearly everyone […]

film: mac

this is mac.  he is quite possibly the smartest dog to have ever lived. his person is a dear friend of mine and dog trainer extraordinaire!  they came up to seattle for a visit back in oh-nine, let me take them for a walk in our cute downtown and snap a few back alley shots. […]

fantastically elaine

she told me she was “no good at getting her picture taken”.  do pants ever really catch on fire?  or pretty white summer dresses for that matter… whether she believed in herself or not, she was perfection in front of that lens.  i know elaine a fair amount.  i know that she is quiet in […]

[…]

sweetheart of a girl

natural beauty

this is leasa.  she is gorgeous…inside and out.  she is witty with the perfect touch of sarcasm and not afraid to ask questions. no matter where i asked her to go stand as we wandered the streets of tacoma, she just knew how to work it.  “stand on top of that wall” or “kneel next […]

we go together like

one taste was all it took.  just like diet coke, i am addicted.  i feel like yelling “slideshows for everyone!” at the top of my lungs as if i were serving them at a restaurant.  there something so so so special about these things…they seem to mean SO much to the people who receive them. […]

avery doodle

my sister in law has amazing taste.  she buys the best quality organic food, she works for the best companies and she has the best taste in quality home decor.  it never hurt my feelings that my sis-in-law didn’t ask me to do her photos.  honestly.  i knew she was a stickler for amazing images […]
