It was during Portland Fashion Week 2014 when I first saw then 15 year old designer Kate Miles share her collection. She had many fabulous pieces, but one in particular caught my eye: a big black tulle dress with a handmade glass corset. As I laid my eyes on the dress I knew it was time to plan another project. An epic dress deserved an epic story, so I began my hunt for the key piece to this project-a wolfdog: a dog mixed with low to high content of wolf. I had the opportunity to work with Lucian, an upper mid content wolfdog back home in Ohio, and I was itching to work with another beautiful dog. After a little bit of searching I met Tracy and Tsura via Facebook. Tracy lives in Oregon with Tsura, a 80/20 British Colombian Wolf-Malamute mix.

 On a cloudy day in February, I met Tsura for the first time. Don't let the peaceful expressions on my face fool you, I was a nervous being so close to such a big beauty, but she was a sweetheart. The end results...well just take a look for yourself!

Pinterest Love

A few years ago while scrolling through the infinite pages of Pinterest I came across an image; I stopped, I looked, I stared, and I knew that one day I would recreate this same scene. With the help of some amazing ladies, we set out on a task. Some flowers, a simple outfit, and a photogenic bathtub were the key items that would be needed to make this project come to life. I never thought it would be so hard to find a nice bathtub to take photos in, but over a year later, we found one! A trip to Pikes Place Market for some flowers, a lovely handmade dress from my friend Kim, and a visit to a quaint salon in Edmonds, and I was ready to make some magic with Alyssa (the pretty lady behind the camera).

Nothing I do could be done without an amazing team behind me. I am blessed and lucky to continue to meet people from all different walks of life; people who have the ability to come together and make beautiful things happen.
