These images are from a multi-part portrait series for Seattle-based digital product studio, Substantial.  The collection is part of their effort to start doing more storytelling around their projects and their people. We shot our first of the series earlier this year, featuring environmental portraiture and details in their inspiring workspace.      

Gather Seattle recently hosted a dinner gathering and panel discussion on a lovely March night in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. The discussion centered around ethics in technology and digital product studio Substantial was the perfect backdrop for this meaningful conversation. The evening was curated to perfection by Gather’s founder Chloe Csadenyi-Benson and guests enjoyed a […]

A few months ago I started working on brand and content strategy for Megan Swartz Gellert, founder of Slice PR and Events. I dove into the foundation of her business and identified the pieces that set her apart from the competition. I guided and streamlined all the elements that make up her brand to make […]

Oiselle is a fierce tribe of women comprised of runners and athletes of all stripes. It’s a Seattle-based retail company with global reach and impact, and I was so lucky to get to do a lifestyle shoot with them recently.

I got to capture a beautiful farm to table lunch and participate in inspired conversations alongside other Seattle creative […]

Photographing the food and spirit of family-run Italian hotspot Locanda Ravello in Danville was a real joy. First of all, Bay Area peeps, if you haven’t been to Danville, you’re missing out. It’s absolutely adorable. Everywhere I turned there was a cute little old renovated sports car or vintage truck with a perfect paint job. […]

What do you do when you are putting together a brand video, and you need to showcase a warm summer evening gathering? That’s right. You plan it and host it yourself. As if I need an excuse to get people together for a little bubbly and cake. I’m so grateful for the awesome ladies that […]

Oh, how I love wine tasting! For those of you who are not familiar with Washington wines, lemme tell you, it’s real good. Sure we may not be known like California or as fancy as France, but we have our own little thing going on, and it’s fabulous. Woodinville is just north of Seattle and […]
