Aloha! :: Seattle Travel Photographer

My bags are almost fully packed and I'm doing a little hula dance in anticipation of my flight this afternoon. I'll be in Kauai watching two of my favorite people get married and it marks my 1st time being in a wedding as a bridesmaid instead of photographer. But who am I kidding...the camera is coming out immediately after the ceremony! I just can't pass up the opportunity to photograph my gorgeous friends Negar & Adam on the beach, basking in the post "I do" glow.

The blog will be neglected this week, but I'll be on Twitter every now and again to share photos and maybe a video or two (I'm really hoping to cross off a few more things on my list).

So for now, aloha friends! See you in a week! :)

Thank you!!! :: Seattle Portrait Photographer

I want to let you all know how much I appreciate the emails, texts and Twitter messages I get from you each day. Sometimes my job leads me to work countless hours at my home office and I get co-worker envy...wishing I had someone to chat with in the break room or someone to say hello to at the water cooler or someone to go to lunch with at the deli down the street or...well, you get the picture. Anyway, the little messages from you all put a smile on my face and I wanted to say thank you. :)

Here are a couple photos from what I've been working on this week...

This last one below is a gift certificate that I'm donating to the 4th Annual Fundraising Dinner for Community Alliance for Global Justice. It's taking place on August 7th and you can find more info about it on their website.

Fashion Friday - Thaw 2010 :: Seattle Fashion Photographer

I had a fabulous time at Thaw last week (click HERE to read about the 2009 show). This was my 3rd time volunteering for the fabulous event which raises money for HDSA (Huntington's Disease Society of America).

In the past I've done everything from helping set up the bars, to checking coats, to collecting tickets at the door & helping out at the Thaw Shop. This year they had me photograph guests in front of the media wall as well take photos of the fashion show. Here are some of my favorites from the evening...



If you were a Thaw guest and had your photo taken in front of the media wall (or you'd just like to see more images from the night), go to Art of Subtlety, click on the "client proofs" button and type in the password "thaw2010" (without the " " marks). Any profits from the photos you order will be donated to HDSA.

Happy Friday everyone! :)

Thomas :: Seattle Children's Photographer

I've been photographing Thomas since he was a little one and it's been great seeing him grow over the years. He turned 3 last month and we went down to Seward Park to hang out with the ducks, throw rocks in the lake, and take a photo or two. 

I have no idea what was so funny...

...but whatever it was, it must have been hilarious! :)

Gotta love those baby blues.

No better way to get a child laughing than to have Mom and Dad swing them!

Thomas was loving it!

Happy Birthday Thomas!
I hope every wish came true...
