The sun interrupted the last half of yesterday’s shoot with a vengeance. And while I usually prefer the muted, ethereal light of Seattle’s gray skies, I have to admit my arch nemesis¬†did help to make this shot turn out pretty sweet.



When I decided to pick up my camera after a year and a half, I knew the first couple of shoots would be rough.¬† I would probably fumble with lenses (I did), misjudge lighting (yep), and pretty much forget all of my editing skills (I won’t even go there).

These two beautiful people joined me for shoot #2 and made finding my way back into this crazy craft a whole lot easier.

Alyssa and Joseph, my dears – thanks for showing up and being you.
