Holy Names Academy Seattle Senior Hayley strides into Studio B all Glamazon Beautiful (uh…thank you Sorella Salon) and I’m thinking — WOW, if this is what she looks like just standing under florescent lights…what the heck kind of magic are we going to have when we get her on set? I’m guessing you can see! Hayley is such a natural and I just loved her Moto Jacket paired with the black boot and red skinny jean for this outdoor look at the historic Issaquah gas station. I also posted another favorite on our Facebook page here
Guess who just got an early Christmas gift? (yes…I’m literally pausing my typing to point two thumbs right at myself ) 425 Magazine Design Editor Robin Daly featured our photographic art in her article “PICTURE THIS: How to Display Photos with Style.” For years we have been creating wall designs for our Studio B clients and it so fricken cool to see some of my very favorites assembled into the pages of the November/December issue! The tips and tricks in the article are great and of course if you’d like to see more be sure to check out our Decorating with Family Portraits blog series.
Loved getting to photograph talented Seattle Stylist Kailie – and not just because she looks like actress Mila Kunia (but that didn’t hurt) We photographed four different professional looks both in the studio and outdoors but it was this Fall look that immediately had me thinking that she belonged in front the camera as a model!
Sun streaming through the Fall leaves, pretty Susan from Cascade Christian in her cable knit burgundy sweater with perfect accessories adorning her neck and wrists…YEP, it’s going to be a great photo shoot I photographed Susan’s brother a couple of years ago and let’s just say that the apples don’t fall far from the tree — both are just gorgeous and sweet as the day is long. I added another favorite from this look on our Facebook page here
For this year’s family pictures with the Wadlow’s, Mom Michelle decided that we’d be heading out for a Fall Spectacular! Luckily the weather more than cooperated with us (because sometimes you know, we decide one thing and Seattle weather doesn’t get on board…but not this day!) I love the wardrobe choices for each of girls in their Ugg boots and Autumn color pallette but it’s the clever styling of Mom in her hounds-tooth pants with chocolate riding boots and Dad’s green sweater & yellow pant combination that is just off-the-charts photogenic. This was one of the shortest family picture shoots we’ve ever had together and thankfully…nobody ended up in tears (of course I’m meaning the grown-ups ) Outdoor family portraits have the potential to be inherently more relaxed because the babes can just let loose and enjoy being kids while the parents are freed from having to worry about bull in the china shop syndrome. Win/Win for everyone. I posted another favorite on our Facebook page here.
