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.

David

Yes, it’s about time for some more man candy up in this joint…

David is an actor/model, and my second instagrammer.  It’s fun for me to meet and work with people I meet on instagram.  Anyway, he let me know that he was coming to Seattle last Tuesday, so we decided to get together and shoot.  Thankfully, he is a cat person, as Slinky pulled his usual diva stunts…

Rainy Day Dance

This is Mari.  I met her on instagram, and we decided to set up a shoot in Carkeek Park.  Of course, this being the Pacific Northwest, it poured.  Didn’t stop us!  We played in the rain and mud, while I awkwardly cradled an umbrella to protect the camera.  She’s done ballet for a long time, and is now training to be an aerialist!

Fairytale

The mission: dreamy, princessy, fairytale…y.  Lyz and I ended up in Kubota Garden complete with peonies (yep, brought my own flowers to a garden), gowns, silk, and “floof” (referring to the petticoat she made out of endless amounts of tulle.  It’s a beautiful and peaceful place to shoot…you’ll see a bit more of that once I post the white dress shots.

Dress Up For Grown Ups

Meet another photographer named Elizabeth that lives in WA!  We met under one of those “you two should meet” situations and we got together to shoot on Sunday.  She’s a cosplayer, and let me tell you…SO well armed with wigs, fun contacts, every color of eyeshadow ever, etc.  Girl knows how to play dress up like a champ!

Slinky, of course, was his usual pain in the butt self…so here’s yet another entry for the “Cats Interrupting Photo Shoots” series…
