Olympia Portrait Photographer

Feb

20

Wow! I have to say this is my first time calling myself a Portrait Photographer. I’ve photographed in studio before but nothing like classic studio portraiture.

Yesterday, I made my way over to SJP Preferred vendor + one of my besties salon in Olympia to have my hair touched up! I’m back to the rose gold direction and feel so much more me again.

Bree’s the best creative color artist I’ve ever come across. If you want to try something crazy, she’s your woman! On the flip side, she’s my favorite person to refer more “natural” brides to for wedding hair and makeup. She’s wonderful with “nothing crazy, but more than my every day look that will last all night” brides. CONTACT HER/FIND OUT MORE HERE.

I have to give a shout out to the Justin & Mary Lighting Course. That course review blog post will be insane. It may be one of the last courses I review this year as I can’t even put words to it yet. I have been pushed FAR out of my comfort zone and it has been the best thing for me EVER. If you had stuck me in a pitch black room with an umbrella and a flash two years ago I would have laughed and told you this wasn’t a thing. hahaha aaah. Now, it may be one of my favorite shooting scenarios.

The best part? I know there is SO much room for improvement. And I LOVE THESE IMAGES! I knew there was room for so much more as I was shooting, and that’s why I had butterflies the entire time. I loved them. And I knew I could do even better with a different set up.

THANK YOU to Love Your Haiir Co. for my gorgeous hair, being the most amazing friend, and trusting me to try all the crazy camera things! ♥

Broken sublimity. “I am because you wouldn’t have it any other way.” You, are not. I should have heard that. They weren’t an illusion on my mountain. They were fixed in the sky. A planet with gravitational pull that kept my feet on the ground. A united reality where I slept safely. A further joke […]

Becky booked Ethan’s Baseball Senior Photos with The Studio about a year before we were able to finally document them. I’m so happy we finally got together to document a special time for their whole family and especially Ethan! Becky and I first met when I photographed her and Aaron’s engagement photos at the Milton […]

We’ve officially been nomadic for 18 months and we find ourselves getting cozy in Lake Chelan, Washington for the summer! With two weddings remaining summer 2022, we’re preparing to leave the state, but not just yet. I feel the need to stay close to my couples around their wedding dates which puts us not traveling […]

I’m celebrating. In a family suite at Little Creek. By a dreamy electric fireplace in dusk window light. There’s the sound of little boys watching cartoons in another room and Dinah munching food while I sip Grapefruit Pompelini. Clynn’s at a Poker Tournament. Laughing, I’m sure. Winning? Most likely. Dropping a hand or two out […]
