MOODY BRIDALS

She’s moving and wanted pictures with a PNW vibe to remember Washington by. I figured we couldn’t go wrong with a rocky beach and all that green.

Non-traditional bridal portraits are so much fun.

“The core of your true self is never lost. Let go of all the pretending and the becoming you’ve done just to belong. Curl up with your rawness and come home. You don’t have to find yourself; you just have to let yourself in.” ~  D. Antoinette Foy

THE CALL OF THE WILD

I thrive in nature.  My spirit belongs in the country.  In the stillness of the mountains, alongside the deafening roar of the ocean.  Running through the plains, my fingertips brushing the tall prairie grass…  I need rain on my eyelashes and the sun on my face.  The sweet, musky scent of the forest and the tangy salt air of the beach is what I crave. 

Yet.

I wanted to try shooting in the city, amidst the concrete jungle of brick and mortar buildings and screaming automobiles.

It’s good to try new things.  Obviously.  It helps you to grow, to expand, to realize – remember –  what truly makes your soul sing.

For me, stepping out of my comfort zone and shooting in the city reminded me of who I am.  Of what I love. 

I’m a country girl.  There’s no pretending.  I prefer open sky and clean air to a cluttered cityscape and throngs of people.  The vastness of nature to the confinement of overcrowded, jigsaw streets.  

I answer to the call of the wild.  My heart rejoices in the freedom of the untamed wilderness.  My creativity flourishes most when I surround myself in the beauty of Mother Nature and create alongside her.

Still…  How pretty is this sweet girl?!  Thanks, Alyssa, for brightening up that dark, rainy corner of Pioneer Square!
