Butterflies

DSC_7460

I’d been planning this look for awhile.  There’s a particular trail at Saint Edwards State Park that leads you down until you’re completely submerged in nature.  It’s narrow, but not too difficult…unless, of course, you’re dressed like a nature goddess or lugging cameras.  Challenge accepted.  Heather was a trooper as she hiked down while mosquitos feasted on her, plants stabbed her, and the butterflies did their best to jump ship as they snagged on branches.  I worked around the sneakers.

Don’t worry….she made it down in one piece.  We ended the shoot at the bottom and relaxed near the lake and watched a bird of prey soar level with the water.  It was a nice day.

Swingtime!

Ok, not the music, but there was a swing involved!  It was my 15th anniversary yesterday, and my husband and I decided to celebrate with our second shoot with Mari, in a pretty fantastic studio space (Locket Space is SoDo Seattle).  Beautiful big windows, great light, and nifty set options, including this swing.

Mari, of course, is a joy to shoot.  Even watching her warm up is impressive!  I glanced over, and there she was on her back, kicking her legs all the way to the floor behind her shoulder.  Plenty more to come!

 

Tudor Fairytale

Tudor time!  Celeste of Poppyseed Roll Clothing and I got together with Jordan here for a royal, Tudor inspired shoot.  Celeste made this entire outfit, once again blowing my mind with her attention to detail.  Jordan made a perfect Tudor model, and don’t worry, managed to keep her head attached to her body.  We shot this at Saint Edwards State Park, one of my favorite places in the Pacific Northwest…the first shot is actually part of a playground…work with what you’ve got, right?
