As a Seattle photographer, most of my sessions take place in city parks, at my downtown studio, or inside client homes. However we are within an hour or two of incredible Pacific Northwest settings that make for unbelievable photo locations.
Last month I did a series of snow shoots at the Snoqualmie Summit, and I’ll be offering Whidbey Island sessions soon. Have another spot in mind? Just shoot me an email. My camera and I are always up for an adventure!
Think of your favorite photo. My guess is it wasn’t taken by saying cheese or posing awkwardly for the camera. So why should a photographer ask you to do either? A good photographer doesn’t force a shot, or direct their subject into painful poses. A good photographer sets their subject at ease, evokes a feeling, or prompts a candid moment and shoots the result. I design and direct my sessions around this concept. Fun, connected sessions produce fun, connected photos. Simple as that.
While attending college at UW 18 years ago, I apprenticed under a fantastic Seattle film photographer, shooting weddings and learning the ins and outs of photography. Committed to my “plan”, however, I got my masters in business and spent a decade in sales and marketing, keeping photography a side hustle on weekends. After my son was born in 2012, I could no longer ignore my calling. I quit my director role at a sustainability startup and became a full-time photographer. Photography never ceases to challenge or excite me. I love this work, love growing my art, and will undoubtedly still have a camera in my hand when I’m 90.
