In late Autumn I met Amy Bush, the founder and craftswoman behind Loyalsmith Jewelry at Seward Park. Amy was hosting a Jewelry Party for her Entrepreneur lady small business friends and she asked me to photograph it. Our goal was to get candids of her friends wearing her breathtaking creations and also capture the atmosphere of Amy herself and Seattle craftswoman culture.Read More
Stella Martin is Stylist Manager at Ten Pachi Salon in the Seattle U District. I hesitate mightily about writing about her here because I have no interest in sharing her talents with anyone and she's hard enough to book as it is. But! She's seriously THE BEST and what kind of friend would I be if I kept her all to myself?
A bad friend. That is the answer. So here you go. I'm sharing her incredible talent and her smart wit - her amazing pixie cut and the fact that she cuts my hair in under 20 minutes every single time. Do you think I'm done bragging about her? I am not. She also doesn't make me talk to her (which is AMAZING) and she doesn't yell at me even if I only go once a year to get my hair cut because I am busy and also lazy.
Dear stylists and manicurists, dear car mechanics and house painters and eyelash extenders and carpenters and cobblers and tattoo artists and makers and do-ers extraordinary!
Please call me.
I would love to work out a trade. I would love to have you perm my hair in your kitchen and then come to your work and capture you looking like your badass self. I am very interested in what you do and I believe it is beautiful and not menial and worthy of attention and LOVE.
This post is because I have made it through my first year! Tada! What's next? Many more years I guess..... It's impossible to know for sure what the future brings, but I want to talk directly to you who know me and love me because you are the ones that have made all of this possible.Read More
A few months ago I was contacted by my long time internet friend Amy Bush who was launching a jewelry line of handmade goldfill jewelry called LoyalSmith. She wondered if I might be interested in a collaboration.Read More
How are your school feelings friends?
November is the month where it all gets real I think. That brand new back to school feeling that tided us through September and October has faded. We aren't giddily sharpening pencils and planning outfits anymore. All the Pinterest ideas have been used up or abandoned. We have tried pretending none of this is not real and summer will return if you just close your eyes and chant some magic words and that hasn't worked.Read More
