Russian Style Fairytale

Sometimes the stars align and you meet the right people.  I was completely delighted when Celeste of Poppyseed Roll Clothing reached out on instagram to discuss working together.  She hand makes all her designs, and I was pretty blown away.  I recruited Lyz to model, Celeste invited Michelle, a wonderful makeup artist, and we got together to create these Anastasia inspired Russian Fairytale Princess images.  We had originally planned to shoot in a park, but Lyz suggested the Suzallo Library, and I’m glad she did.

I would have been happy enough with the results, but when a team has so much fun working together, all the better!  And my cat tried to get into EVERYTHING during prep. Of course.

Camera Meditation

I’ve been spending a lot of time at Magnuson Park lately…plenty of space to run around, pretty much the best dog run ever, and sections of preserved wetlands.  Seattle, yes, has the rainy rep, but we’ve been gifted some pretty awesome weather lately.  Things are blooming and unfurling.  I took my camera today, with my macro lens.  I usually reserve that for product photography, but realized I wasn’t having nearly enough fun with it.  Took a very relaxing, meditative walk and ended up with these.
