acupuncturist extraordinaire

I want to introduce you to my dear friend, Nikki Wolf; a fabulous acupuncturist that you should know.
Everyone should know her because she is wonderful and intuitive and she's a good person to know. But if you are pregnant or if you have children and have considered acupuncture, then you should DEFINITELY know her.

Nikki specializes in maternity, post-partum and pediatrics. She is wonderful with kids, (she's a mom herself) and she has amazing success with labor prep and stimulation. I am not exaggerating here. I have a friend who went to see her for labor stimulation and her water broke on the table. To this day, that friend's husband calls Nikki "The Extractor." (Quite an image, yes?)

Anyway, check her out! Her site is under construction at the moment, but you can at least get her contact info by clicking here.

Eryn and Liam

Meet Eryn and Liam- two hilarious, energetic, silly, and super fun siblings who I got to photograph yesterday in the misty-rainy-occasionally-sunny weather.

These two just cracked me up from start to finish.

Branching out to the east

This will probably be the first of many shout-outs to the eastern half of the United States, because I am heading your way!!

In mid May, I will be flying into Vermont where I will spend 4 or 5 days. After that, I am heading south. Aside from the sweet farm wedding I am shooting in Georgia on May 30th, (SO excited for that one!) I am intentionally leaving this trip flexible and have yet to buy my return ticket.
Most likely, I will spend some time in the Baltimore area and the DC area. I could very well stop in North Carolina, as I make my way down the coast. I will definitely be in the western half of Florida in the beginning of June. Who knows? Anything can happen on this trip, which is exactly the point.
The other point is that I am booking work throughout my adventure, and wherever the work shows up is, likely, where I will go.

If you are interested in any photo work or have questions about where I will be and when, please email me!

A summer dinner on the farm

Okay, yes, I know this is backwards. I realize that I did a post back in October about autumn at Kurtwood Farms, and that it was timely since it was, in fact, autumn. But here it is, late winter, and I am finally getting around to posting some summer photos from my work with Kurtwood Farms.

I do this for two reasons:

First, if you have been following my work with this job, you know that the Sunday Cookhouse Dinners at Kurtwood are wonderful and renowned and yet, in all my excitement about the colors of fall, I forgot to share some images from one of these nights.

Second, aren't you just SO ready for spring right about now??? I know I am and have been since, oh, I don't know....October?! Anyway. These photos are a great pick-me-up because they remind me of what's to come. Like, for example, berries and squash blossoms and warm days with rose wine. And tomatoes. Lots and lots and LOTS of tomatoes.

So, dive in and remember that we don't have too much longer to wait for short sleeves and warm evenings.

(Note: the chef pictured below is the very talented, Morgan, who has since gone back to Portland. These days, the regular chef on the farm is the fantastic, Tyler, from fabulous Spring Hill in my 'hood, West Seattle.)
