Photos of Photographers

Yesterday I had the pleasure of getting together with a couple fellow photographers, Noelle Johnson and Julia Manchik. We grabbed coffee and chatted about all sorts of wonderful things: marriage, relationships, business, lip balm... and then we set out to explore an area of Seattle none of us had ever been to before.

Shooting without having to worry about getting any specific shots to deliver was delightfully freeing, and we just had fun experimenting, wrapping each other up in vines and sitting on pretty petal-laden (though frightfully wet and muddy) steps... I have many lovely photos that I love-- it helps when the girls you're photographing happen to be naturally gorgeous-- but here are just a couple favorites for now. 



Art for Orphans

Recently my friend Adam (who does cool stuff with Rethink Creative Group, as well as his own awesome work here) asked me if I'd be interested in donating some photos for this project called Art for Orphans. Art for Orphans is selling original artwork to help raise money to send to an organization called Family Legacy, who provide food, a home, education, and unconditional love to orphaned children in Zambia. 



I really respect and admire what they're doing. Watch this video; it will probably show and explain a bit better than I can. I hope you'll follow their links, read more about what they're doing and get really excited about helping these children!



If you'd like to contribute, you can buy prints of some of my photos as well as the work from other artists here, knowing that your purchase proceeds are all going towards the people making things happen in Zambia. I'm not sure when else decorating a living space has so benefited someone else on the other side of the globe. 

Below you can see just a few of my photos that are for sale on the site. They're a combination of film and digital images taken around Washington state and in various cities in Italy.
