I met up with Curtis and Liesl for a Second Anniversary shoot, this one styled after the 2nd year traditional gift of cotton. Liesl is the owner of a business named “The Little Road Said Go“, a business specializing in vintage & up-cycled goods, as well as design. Curtis & Liesl really are great together.
We shot a First Anniversary series in 2011, in the theme of paper. Liesl, being the especially creative one that she is, beautifully styled both of these shoots. She also made nearly all of her wedding accessories and decorations!
This shoot incorporates their designs, creations and collections, and even Curtis’ old blue truck from his school days…

LATE! But please accept the sentiment nonetheless. I wanted to feature some of the many family sessions I got to do prior to Christmas; I had been waiting until these families’ Christmas cards went out so as not to spoil the impact of the photos but it looks like I waited even longer than that!
Anyway, here is the first blog of the New Year – happy 2013!

I’ve been working with Jones Lang LaSalle a lot this year, helping them get photos of downtown building spaces they need to lease. This helps them market the spaces to prospective tenants, and also provides me with some interesting adventures! For example, when I scouted the shots JLL needed for this building, I told them the best exterior photo would be from the rooftop of a building up the street.
The building with the rooftop was the old College Club of Seattle which has been abandoned for years. I had to do some sleuthing to find out who would let me inside. Once I did, I saw the inside had been very nice at one point, but at present looked like something out of a video game: sections of ceiling falling down, wallpaper torn from walls, and no power throughout! The guy who let me in had a flashlight and a map to help us get to the roof. We opened the door out to the roof to find some very upset seagulls screeching at us, and circling overhead. Apparently this is a popular nesting spot for them. The guy warned me about seagulls’ defense, which is “spraying” (e.g. “pooping”). Great.
Nonetheless, we got a clean shot of the 901 5th building and it all wraps up into an interesting story!

I thought I should mention a part of my business which includes furniture vendors who call me out to photograph finished projects for them.
This project is furnished by Western Office Interiors and took place in a business in Pioneer Square:
