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.
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!
Decided to check out Saint Edwards State Park over the weekend, and discovered yet another beautiful place to walk, breathe, and photograph. I always feel so much better after spending time surrounded by nature and all it has to offer. Pretty sure my husband and dog feel the same way.
Sometimes you have to get out of your normal setting, ditch your lighting setup, and go for a walk. Straight up a mountain. I think poor Heather was devoured by mosquitos that day…what a trooper.
