erica.


While I was in Seattle, I got to meet little Erica. She had just turned two and I was getting to take her latest portraits. Her dad really wanted some photos of her that fit her personality, so I basically got to spend the day playing with her and taking candid shots. We started with the playhouse above and moved to the train set…


Erica wants Daddy to play, too!



Fairy princess Erica.


Her room has lots of Totoro stuff in it. I’m jealous.

I had so much fun playing with you, Eri-chan! Thank you for having me!
These are just a few of my favorite shots. She was such an adorable model. Make sure to check out a few more of my favorites here!

hello, seattle.

Between trips, I forget just how much I love this city. It has one of the best atmospheres of any city I’ve ever been in. Maybe it’s the smell of the rain, which is intoxicating to me. Maybe it’s that I was born there. Regardless, getting to drive up for a visit this winter was a blast.

The actual drive was hectic. The weather was not agreeable at all, but we made it through. It was my first long road trip where I actually spent a good chunk of time driving. After driving straight through Oregon to Seattle in the pouring rain, I pretty much feel like I can take on anything.

I spent a lot of the trip exploring with my aunt, Maiya. We drove, bused, and walked all over the place.




When we weren’t exploring, we were probably on campus at the UW, studying and drinking lattes.



After such a great trip, I hated to leave… but I have to say, flying home on Virgin America was awesome.



During my visit I had a wonderful portrait session with the adorable 2-year-old Erica! There will be a full post on that later, but enjoy the sneak peek, and make sure to check out the rest of the photos from my trip on my facebook page.
