At Nature Kids Preschool, in Seattle's Discovery Park - we plant trees at thanksgiving. I love this tradition. It's my third year doing it and I was digging next to a mom whose three children had attended consecutively and she had been doing it many many years in a row! It was wonderful!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.
I'm so excited today y'all. I've been waiting to show you these!!!!!!!!!!!
Now you know I'm always up for something new, so of course when singer/actor/talent extraordinary Atlee Feingold called me and asked if I could witness her coming undone in the golden light of her 1920"s Capitol Hill light filled space I JUMPED at the chance and the pictures are so surprising and magical and emotive. I love them and I know you will too. (a quick note to say NSFW)Read More
The thing about portraits is that it seems like an easy thing to take a picture of a person. Sometimes it seems so easy that I feel silly working so hard at it. But then I remind myself that it might be the hardest thing.Read More
