    Honestly I just don’t understand where the myth about senior boys came from — trust me — they absolutely want a fabulous senior pictures experience every bit as much as the gals! Admittedly…they may not be earmarking the pages of Vogue and practicing poses in the mirror…but they do want to look natural, relaxed and amazing for this huge milestone.  Mission accomplished for Skyline High School’s Nathaniel, Class of 2015:-)  He also had a fantastic studio portrait with his football that I just have to share with you…be ready — you are going to be smiling at the screen when you see this one!

    So oh my gosh…where to begin?  How about with the behind the scenes details for how this senior pictures photo shoot with Kayleigh finally came to be?  It’s me…so there is ALWAYS a story right?…And usually it involves some sort of comedy of errors — yep, this one too:-)I got it in my brain that a rope swing would be a fabulous concept for a senior photo shoot…who knew it was going to be brain surgery to not only find the perfect wood plank and rope…and secure it to a properly sized branch.  I know I know…you are thinking “HOME DEPOT, Brooke”…but NO.  I am the farthest thing from a “do it yourself” girl that you will meet…so of course I was stalking the internet for someone who would give me the “instant gratification, microwave version” of the perfect set.  FYI…doesn’t exist…trust me…I really tried.  So cut to me — pitching our team on my creative concept and getting shot down like 12 times….blah blah blah “safety”…blah blah blah “crashing to the ground” they said.  Ohhhhhh…”I see, fine…let’s try it your way…with some planning and thought”  So while it was neither FAST or INSTANT…by the time Kayleigh from Eastlake High School arrived for her senior pictures photo shoot this day….we were totally ready (sort of).  Intern Robert was in the finishing touches of doing his very best version of a rope configuration…securing the swing to the tree that involved 8 knots — I’m telling you both a troop of boy scouts and Master Magician Houdini would have been impressed.  The last test of readiness before we would begin shooting involved all 6 foot 6 inches of Robert and well over 200 pounds of him bouncing on the swing with copious amounts of tissue paper and flowers… for that single bit of confidence that we would need before letting Kayleigh take a ride:-)  And you just thought it was a picture of a beautiful senior girl on a swing right? (heehee)  Our senior photo shoots at Studio B are meant to celebrate this tremendous milestone with the kids and honestly…it takes a village of talent to make them happen so BIG thank you to Wesley at Sorella Salon for once again creating the most gorgeous hair and our in-house make-up artist Tiffany for her natural “You on Your Best Day” face and finally to Trisha from Stella & Dot for lending us her beautiful jewelry.

    Meet Class of 2015 Senior Amanda!  This Lake Washington High School stunner is today’s Head to Toe “DO!”…As in we DO love her on trend black and white maxi dress, we DO covet her fitted white “ballet inspired” crop top and we DO adore her care-free auburn waves and camera-ready face (thank you Sorella Salon and our lovely in house Make-up artist Tiffany:-)  Amanda is a dancer and her natural ease really comes across when we’re shooting…we had a video crew filming on the day we were photographing her senior pictures so I’m on pins and needles to show you the moving imagery from her session. We also added another favorite from shoot our Facebook page here.


    Monica Hart in 425 Magazine July 14_Studio B

    I recently had the great pleasure of photographing Monica Hart’s Summer Del Sol party for 425 Magazine.  Following her acclaimed career with Kiro Television News, Monica decided to pursue her passion for all things home, design, food and entertaining.  That zest is artfully detailed in her lifestyle blog and her latest Summer party ideas are featured in the July issue of the magazine (in stores now.)  You can see from the imagery here that the party is fabulous…but honestly — can I just say a little something about this gal’s gorgeous home?…yes, I’m about to gush about the way she decorates her house — all I have to say is look out Martha Stewart:-)Oh and here’s a little sneak peek of the behind the scenes that we posted to our Instagram (How sweet is that chandelier?…I love unexpected detail!)

    There is something so special about this girl — some kids just inspire me and I’ve got to tell you…Emelia is one of those people every time she steps in front of my camera.  This Issaquah High School Senior has an eclectic style and a “ready for anything” attitude so when I told her we’d be photographing one of her looks in a make-shift teepee/tent complete with glitter and butterflies…I knew she’d be game!  I’m absolutely in love with how everything turned out!!!
