Fashion Friday :: Cameron Levin's Chelsea Collection

I had the absolute BEST time photographing for Seattle designer Cameron Levin! Her clothing is gorgeous (I fell in love with her dresses while shopping at Spun Sustainable Collective a couple months ago) and I was stoked when she asked me to photograph her Chelsea collection! She brought along the beautiful Brittney Brandt to model and the incredibly talented Scotty Provo to work hair and makeup magic. The shoot ran smoothly, was tons of fun, and most importantly we were able to create images that perfectly showcased the Chelsea collection.

Fashion Network Seattle recently profiled Cameron and you can read what she had to say about her collection, designing and fashion by clicking HERE.

The Strands :: Seattle Portrait Photographer

Here are some adjectives that describe Courtney and Jeff:

rad, funny, generous, gorgeous, super cool, witty, hot, genuine, playful, adventurous, awesome-sauce, and did I mention good looking? Because I actually meant super good looking.

Courtney found me on Twitter and from all of her tweets I knew we would get along swimmingly (in fact, it's because of her tweet about Iceland's killer travel deal that Nate and I went there last month)! She had mentioned awhile back that she would be in the market for business photos and I was so excited when I got an email from her husband Jeff! I mean really though, when you get an email that starts off with, “My wife is in love with your work,” how could you not be excited? :)

We photographed at Volunteer Park and here's a sampling of that super good lookingness I was telling you about:

thank you peer pressure :: Seattle Portrait Photographer

I'll be the first to admit that I had no desire to sign up for a Twitter account. My friends told me over and over that I “just had” to sign up and that it would “definitely help grow my business”, but all that went through my head was “yuck! Another social networking account just means something else I have to maintain and my to-do list is already too long!

To all of my friends that pressured me relentlessly and forced me to sign up for Twitter, I'd like to say thank you. And, because I know you all want to hear this, you were right; Twitter is an invaluable tool! I've found wonderful clients, met fantastic business owners, discovered amazing local shops, and most importantly I've made some awesome friends. :)
