2 Year Blogiversary!

Well, well….here we are, two years later!  This one really flew for me.  It was a year of big change, as my husband and I moved to Seattle from NYC.  It’s definitely been a good change along with a big adjustment.  I’ve met amazing new faces, wrestled with pets to keep them out of every shot, continued on personal work, expanded the print shop by double, gotten up close and personal with nature, and generally enjoyed the beauty and culture of the Pacific Northwest.

I’ve also been doing a lot more drawing this year, and rediscovering watercolors, pastels, charcoals, and other wonderfully messy things.  Maybe I’ll start showing a little of that here as well.

Is there anything in particular you’d like to see more of from me?  And of course, if you’d like to set up your own photo shoot with me, please do so here:  Book a shoot with Liz

Thanks for hanging out with me here!



Rainbow Nudes!

New toy!  My husband presented me with a really cool color changing bulb for my lighting setup as I was shooting Heather…it even comes with a remote!  Yes, I’m in photo gear geek out mode, please bear with me.  It happens.  Anyway, this bulb combined with a fair Heather and my black wall resulted in these.  I need to experiment a little more and refine, but this was fun 🙂

I’d been wanting to do a joint shoot with Heather and Marisa here, but don’t ask how I came up with this one! Two models, two fish, my tattoo artist on makeup, several people thinking I’m out of my mind…and here we are.  This took…many tries!  Animals are can be pretty tricky to shoot and these lovely male models were no exception.  CLICK!  Annnnnnd the fish has retreated to the reflective part of the glass and is now invisible!  Anyway…it was a fun/slightly nutty day, and both fish went on to live long and happy lives.  Although my cat was very interested….

Dress it up!

Know what’s fun?  Playing dress-up well into adulthood.  It makes me happy to give people the opportunity to put on an outfit, a costume, anything that lets them play around with who they want to be in that moment.  Part of the fun of shoots is sorting through wardrobe and seeing what we can come up with.  Sometimes it reveals things about the subject that they didn’t realize before…while others are well aware 😉
