The Measure loved my Strawberry Shortcake shoot so much that they commissioned me to photograph another one of their precious vintage style sun suits. It was the perfect opportunity to pair them with the new yellow Shauna sandals from See Kai Run. This was the first client shoot in the new studio and I can’t imagine a better way to
Words fail me when I try to explain the joy this new adventure brings me. I never thought I would be a studio photographer. In fact, I always said I would definitely not be a studio photographer (you’d think I would have learned to never say never after the whole wedding thing) because I get bored so easily and must continue shooting different things. So, what changed? Aside from my frustration of being seriously limited in the number of months I could actually photograph clients (and personal projects) because, well, I’m in the Pacific Northwest where it is cold and rainy half the year, I’m not really sure. But I can tell you that my studio is the most inspiring space I’ve ever been in. It’s like a blank canvas to me with infinite possibilities. It’s a total creative space and constantly keeps me dreaming. It’s a gorgeous 1200 square foot loft with 20 foot ceilings, 3 10 foot windows, hardwoods, gorgeous historic exposed brick, and all white walls so the light can bounce around. Not to mention it is located in the heart of Pioneer Square in Seattle on the corner of 1st Ave and Yesler Way, which means it is a block from the waterfront and 2 blocks from Occidental Park, which happen to be the two loveliest places to shoot in downtown Seattle. This space really is a dream come true and I can’t wait to share it with you!
Over the last week I’ve been shooting friends and family in here to get a feel for the light and the space. I am happy to say that because the windows are north facing we have plenty of beautiful light (without being direct sunlight) all day long. I shot these photos of my husband and his brother literally right before sunset.
Because this is such a joyous and unprecedented occasion for me, I wanted to pass along all this happy to you because YOU are what made this happen, my friends. Without you, I would not be living my dream
right now. So, from the bottom of my heart, consider this my sincerest thank you to all of you who have supported me, my art, and my business over the past 4 years.

Seriously, I have never ever priced my sessions so low and honestly can’t see myself ever doing this
again so take advantage of these huge savings while you can.
And, I just can’t resist throwing a bit more eye candy your way…
I did a morning of laid back cherry blossom mini sessions last weekend and wanted to share a few of my favorites. Because who doesn’t love cherry blossoms?

They are magical and ethereal, even when the petals begin to fall and it looks like a Spring snow. I love everything about these beautiful trees.
Have you heard the news? We’ll be moving into a gorgeous loft studio in the heart of Pioneer Square next month! Wood floors, high ceilings, exposed brick, big open floor plan… the works! I am so very thrilled
to have found such a gem of a space to call my first studio home. And did I mention that its perfectly placed to allow for a variety of outdoor shooting as well as indoor shots? I am so utterly in love with this space. I’ve attached a couple photos for eye candy, but we haven’t moved in just yet so I will be sharing more when we do, of course!
Ok, now on to what you’ve all been waiting for: the highly anticipated Seattle Bunny Mini Sessions! These were a huge hit last year. They sold out within days and there was a waiting list. I use the wonderful Bunnies for Birthdays to provide well socialized and cared for baby (and adult) bunnies for these sessions. They are USDA licensed and very professional. We love working with them. The mini sessions will be held in the new studio on April 13, 2014. You are welcome to stay after your session and hang out in the studio cuddling bunnies to your heart’s content, but we only have space for a total of 6 sessions (and 2 have already booked!) so don’t delay in snatching up your spot! As soon as your session is paid for, your appointment time is locked in. I’ve made it easy for you with the PayPal button below.
There are some stores I love. Like, love love love. The kind of stores you just want to be your home (Hello, Anthropologie!). I love them so much I have a hard time when I walk in because I get so overwhelmed with all the gorgeous eye candy and then end up being paralyzed with indecision and walking out empty handed. These are the kind of places I want to just walk in and say “Um, can you just dress me?” or “My bedroom could really use a makeover… Just go ahead and take care of the decor and styling for me.” I just want someone to make all the decisions for me because I know I will love the finished product. And I’m busy. And I get overwhelmed. And then I just don’t ever get around to doing anything about it and that thing just kind of keeps buzzing in the back if my mind “hey, you need to do this thing…” making me feel all anxious and even more overwhelmed.
Frequently clients approach me and express their desire for a concept session followed with something along the lines of “but I’m just not as creative as you are,” or “but I have no idea what I want,” or “I don’t even know where to start…” and various variations thereof. I always reassure these people that I am here to walk through every step of the way with you to find the absolute perfect dream session for your child that also resonates deeply with you as a parent; after all, that’s why you are hiring me! But sometimes even that is overwhelming for busy parents (I totally get it… ask me about how far planning has come on my 8 year old’s birthday party… when her birthday was 2 months ago…), so I am very excited to begin offering Exclusive Concept Sessions – editorial style storytelling sessions that have been swimming around in my head, which means I already have the vision planned and ready to go, just waiting for the perfect little girl or boy to star in it!
I’ve been dying to shoot an Alice In Wonderland concept for a while now. I have some new tricks up my sleeve that I am not quite ready to share yet, but they will work perfectly with such a whimsical and imaginative scene. Intrigued? This session could belong to you! Even more exciting? Exclusive Concept Sessions will truly be a one stop shop with the session fee and all high res files included in a digital download link at an all inclusive price of $1250 (valued at $1725). Such a steal!
Check it out. This would be a wonderful option for a sibling shoot with so many quirky characters to be portrayed! If this resonates with you and you can totally see your child (or yourself!) in this world, let’s talk!
Ready to snatch up this amazing opportunity and end that buzzing in the back of your mind? Just think Of me as your photographic equivalent of a Nordstrom personal stylist. Book your Exclusive Concept Session now!
