Pride Cake Smash!

Pride Cake Smash!

With all the ugliness surrounding the Supreme Court's decision in the cake baker case I decided I wanted to do something positive to counter it. So I cooked up a plan with some friends and enlisted the magic baking hands of South Fork Cake Co who made the most amazing cake I think I've ever seen. My good friends Alex & Chad then proceeded to smash it into each others faces in the most adorable way.

A few weeks ago my friend Nick was at dinner with a group of his friends. Somehow the talk turned to people telling Nick he needed to try out modelling. Nick thought maybe this might not be a bad idea. Our mutual friend Jesse sent him my way. We shot some pictures. Here are the results.

A milestone shoot with Michelle - Seattle Portrait Photography

Michelle contacted me last month to schedule a portrait shoot for a very special reason. She wanted to mark five years since she kicked cancer's ass! How great is that? She even had a specific location in mind, the beach that her family had property close to where she would summer growing up. How perfect is that? The weather was even quintessentially Pacific Northwest, drizzly and windy! But Michelle loved it and we got some great, raw shots which was exactly what she wanted.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... - Seattle Portrait Photography

Anyone who knows me knows that Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year by a mile. Come November 1st I’m blasting the Christmas tunes and guzzling eggnog latte’s. So when I realized I had friends who had babies that could be dressed up in adorable Santa outfits, I messaged them right away. I should’ve known better because of course Angela already had their Christmas outfits purchased and was dying for photo’s of them in them! So to that end I had Jesse, Angela and their adorable twins Ruby and Leo into the studio yesterday for some photo’s.

A few weekends ago I spent a lovely morning down at Carkeek Park with Hitomi, Pete and Paul. It started out a little cloudy and chilly but it soon brightened up, not that Paul noticed as he was busy zooming around the place.
