Butterflies

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.

It’s funny…when I decided to close my Etsy print shop, I felt some sort of binding fall off me, and more creative freedom burst forth.  It’s time to start a new age of growth, personally and professionally.

There are still two days left to grab a print if you want one…I’ll be closing Etsy on 6.1.2017.  Prints

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!
