Summer in Seattle

Summertime...and the living is easy.

Summer is slowly but surely coming to an end, and I'm so thankful to be able to say it has been one of the best of my life. My first summer in Seattle has been filled with new friends, cool music, good food, and fun adventures.

I was so nervous when my mom brought up the idea of moving away from Ohio, the place I considered to be home- but it turned out to be the best decision.

I first met Stephen Klise this year in January. One night as I was searching the world of hashtags on Instagram, I came across his work. I instantly fell in love with his natural lighting photography and natural style of editing.

Stephen and I were looking to have a little adventure; I had a day off from work and the sun was out, so we decided to take some photos at Carkeek Park. Even though the park is just around the corner from downtown Seattle, it was just the outing we were looking for. Sometimes, even a small adventure to the beach can provide a fun escape!

Beach days

 It was around the beginning of 2015 when I met up with Lynnsey to take some photos at a nearby beach. Sometimes you just need to do something more simple; not worrying or stressing over putting together a full team, but instead focusing on the art of creating beautiful photos. So that's what we did. I picked out a few favorites from my fall wardrobe: I chose my favorite jacket from Zara, a new clean pair of white high tops, and a selection of hats. Next, I threw on some makeup and headed out to meet Lynnsey!

Life can get busy; remember to slow down and enjoy the simple things: the sound of the ocean, breeze running through your hair, a beautiful sunset.
