This year has been so full of incredible new opportunities for me including this amazing afternoon spent in one of my favorite spaces in all of Seattle, Bar Melusine. I was contacted by the folks at The I.D.E.A Brand to lead a flat lay styling & photography session with local social influencers and shoot their pop up event for the bag company Pacsafe. I'm going to do a whole post about flat lay photography to kick off the new year but in the meantime, here's a peek at this event. Earlier this year Pacsafe launched a new line The Citysafe Collection so the entire afternoon was spent learning about these very functional and stylish bags and I was lucky enough to take one home with me (and promptly took with me to NYC and DC for a little adventure). It was such a great way to spend the afternoon, appetizers, a specialty cocktail, and loads of photo ops. It was a real 2017 highlight for me to share my passion for storytelling through photography with other creatives.
