Hi! I am a photographer/baker/reader/hiker/former park ranger now living in Milton, Washington.
I moved here a
few months ago year ago (whoa!), and have been enjoying exploring the Puget Sound!
It’s so beautiful here, and there is so much to see and do.
I have been taking photos for about 10 years, beginning in my high school’s darkroom where I learned to process black and white prints. I didn’t realize it could be a potential career until recently.
I find myself shooting a lot of macro; the close-ups of both nature and man-made stuff is what most interests me.
The purpose of this blog is to help me decide if I want to try photography as a career. I love photography, but I’m not sure if I have what it takes to make it a career. Or, if art photography is a financially viable way to support myself.
I also love baking. Pie is my special love, though I have been trying some different bread doughs and cookie doughs lately. I am blogging and working on a 365 photo project to figure out if I like photography or baking better. Or maybe there is a way to combine my two loves?
Do you have a recipe you think I should try? Drop me a line.
I am currently building my portfolio, and I want to include all the types of photography that I think I might be interested in. That list includes: nature, landscapes, people, pets, and macro, to name the main ones.
I have not had a lot of experience in photographing people, and I want to work on this.
Isaac has been my on-call model since we moved to Renton. We don’t know anyone else in the area just yet. He has been a mostly obliging subject. However, I would love to photograph YOU!
Since I’m just building my portfolio, I can offer you a free session with a disc of the images taken in exchange for your time. Sound good to you? Drop me an email here! Depending on the type of photos you’d like (Individual, family, kids, senior portraits) the length of the time for the session will vary.
I also want to work on my pet photography, and I have been a volunteer photographer working with the stray cats at the Seattle Humane Society in Bellevue.
Want photos taken of your pet? I am looking for dog and cat clients as well as human. Same offer as above applies, a free session and a CD with the images taken during the session in exchange for your time! A pet session would probably be around 1-2 hours depending on the pet. Some seem to get bored after 45 minutes or so.
Want a free photo session? Email me here! Let’s set something up!
