Summer happened. Be right back.
I met up with Piper early one morning, to shoot potential cover images and content for her upcoming record release, as well as a few alternate portrait setups and some general stock for her personal blog. Two hours, perfect light, an incredible subject -- drop me a line if you have a project coming up that needs some images! These are my very favorite kinds of shoots to do. <3
I was fortunate enough to tour the Heylo Cannabis lab space late last year and meet it's owners, Lo and Daniel, after praising their product online in an Instagram comment. (Right? I know.) Taking them up on the invitation to stop by, I quickly realized that they're all about opening their literal and figurative doors -- not just for an up-close-and-personal view of their world-class equipment & active extraction in process, but also for so many aspects of community-building: everything from live performances to terpene education, industry gatherings, and active discussions around responsible use.
Becoming fast acquaintances with Lo and Daniel found me at the space several more times in the following months: once to cover a live performance, and once for some standardized badge headshots and group images, all during the holidays. Coming into the first hints of spring, as the sun sneaks through the cracks here in the Northwest, I'm thrilled to finally have the time to pull all of these images together here. <3
Also -- if you're looking for suggestions on legal cannabis products, particularly the type that address anxiety, depression, etc. & don't rocket you into space for a moon landing, feel free to reach out. I've done a lot of homework on this front, and would be happy to share my experience with anyone who needs it! xo
A few iPhone shots from our trip to Jackson Hole over the holidays:
A last-minute photoshoot with Martin, Nakita, and sweet little Elijah for some family holiday cards! These three have such a specific, warm energy when they're all together -- I'm very much looking forward to documenting more of it at a family shoot with them sometime this summer or spring.
Here are just a few of my favorite moments from the day:
I've known Meg since we started working together at my current dayjob -- even though she's moved on to a different career path, and keeps a crazy pace taking care of her two young boys, we've somehow managed to stay in touch. She and her husband Max are some of the most interesting, down-to-earth people I've met in Seattle, and it was a privilege to take a few hours on a Saturday to document them + their sons in Ballard. Can't wait to see how the holiday cards turn out!
