Photographing in my very own neighborhood.... - West Seattle Conceptual Photographer

I am so grateful to live where I live, in the great West Seattle. My “studio” often lies within just 3 miles or less from my place. How lucky am I?

The closest spot- Inside my apartment building.

First we can get ready at my tiny space, and walk outside the door for a few images.

I love alleys.

These first few images are just a walk across the street from my place and then we just wander through all of the alleyways and use a number of really cool backdrops. They might be surrounded by garbage cans or cars, but you would never know it.

Schmitz Preserve Park.

This is one of my favorite places on earth. For real. Old growth trees, not a lot of people, slight witchy vibe. It’s about 2 miles away from me.

Alki Beach.

We all know I love some water. Alki Beach is about a 4 minute drive from my place. I am full of gratitude for these beautiful photo spots right in my backyard.

Witchy Maternity Shoot - Seattle Fine Art Photographer

Hollie and Merlin came to me with the idea of doing something different for their Seattle Maternity shoot.

Please don’t take this literally or be afraid - we did not put any witch spells on the baby or sell it to the devil or anything like that. We just wanted to get real artsy and dark for this maternity shoot.

So we braved the cold and powered through what turned out to be one of my all time favorite maternity sessions of all time in the history of my maternity photographing life.

“Lady of the silver moon
Enchantress of the night
Protect me and mine within this circle fairly cast.
Earth Mother, mother of the sleeping earth,
Keep safe all who gather here
Within the protective shelter of your arms”

Ghost World - Seattle Fine Art Photographer

“The more unknowable the mystery, the more beautiful it is.”

David Lynch

I am so happy this shoot came together the way it did. We had originally envisioned one ghost sister in white and one in black, and we loved this look so much we saved that other idea for another shoot (stay tuned) The girls did their own make up which was AMAZING. We used these wigs they bought for this shoot - and a couple of dresses and dead things from my closet- and then we stepped out onto the ghost world.

Enjoy…..

L.A actress meets Seattle Photographer for a conceptual shoot at Rattlesnake Lake, Washington

Sheila Houlahan has been seen on stage and screen around the world. Her most notable credits include performing the music of A. R. Rahman with the Seattle Symphony as the headliner female vocal soloist for the Celebrate Asia!  Pretty amazing right? Well I get to work with her from time to time when she is visiting from L.A. to Seattle.

Here is what we did last time…..

This is the story of the Wandering Pagan.
