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!

 

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?

Closing Up Shop

I’ve made a rather drastic, and scary decision.  I’m going to close my etsy print shop on June 1st.  Why?  It’s been trapping me creatively.  It takes up too much time, with not enough return.  I want to grow as an artist, and if I’m thinking about what images would sell best, or how I should crop/edit to suit others, I can’t do that.  Sometimes big changes are necessary, and while this is nerve wracking, I also feel free.  Free to pursue my own passions, and use my photography to help others.  Let’s get messy, beautiful, real, dreamy, angry, and make some art!

I’m not saying I won’t offer prints ever again, but when I do, it will be art from the heart, and on a site of my own design, and far more selective.  Stay tuned.

I will, however, keep shooting and sharing with you here!  I’ve added a 25% off coupon code on etsy for the remaining time open, so if you’d like a print, now is the time to grab one using CLOSE25 at checkout.  Get it while it’s hot…

Thank you, as always, for listening.
