Tis The Season

Making a list and checking it twice...

We recently had the great pleasure to work with the man himself, Santa Claus. We were hired as the photographers for a Santa Brunch at a nearby golf club. During the course of the brunch we photographed about 65 families with Santa. Each family got to take home a  5x7 color print in a folder and got the option to order more prints from our online gallery for the holidays.

A High-Five for Santa!

A High-Five for Santa!

If you are looking to have Santa (or Easter, or any special event) posed photographs and prints please contact us. We can print on site, make the photos available for purchase after the event, or both.

During a short break in the photo action I got my chance to talk to the old guy and go over my list. What's on your list?


Happy Holidays!

New company and show in Seattle

Hot on the heels of leaving ACT, Mark Siano has a new company and a new show, Bohemia. The show opens in September in the Café Nordo space in Pioneer Square (Seattle, WA). We recently had the opportunity to meet the cast to create promotional images for the show. You can find more information about the show and purchase your tickets at www.bit.ly/bohemiatix In the meantime, please enjoy the photographs.


Sorry about that interloper in the last photo!

Please keep us in mind for your next photo project. Thanks!

Classic Look Headshots

Classic Dressing for Headshots - the black jacket and white dress shirt

Nearly every client asks us for wardrobe ideas ~ what looks best in photos. We encourage everyone to bring a variety of clothing choices to their photo session. Bring some of your favorite pieces, for sure (you'll likely look the most relaxed in those). And, bring the classic looks too. It's surprising how many people don't  think they want any photos in such a classic look, but then they're surprised at how crisp and fresh (and professional) they look in those photos. 

Thank you!! Y’all did a phenomenal job! [My photos] look GREAT!

Meredith came to us for photos to be used on her upcoming book jacket. Both charming and elegant, we captured some candid moments as well as her professional photos.

I have to thank both of you for taking what I thought would be a nerve-wracking process and transforming it into something so positive, so enjoyable, and so fun! And your pictures really capture something of me... I’m so grateful for your work!

On the road to NYC

Our latest collaboration with ACT Theatre in Seattle was for the acclaimed show Threesome by By Yussef El Guindi as it heads out of Seattle to play in New York City at 59E59 from July 11 to August 23, 2015. It also sparked a Seattle Times article about nudity on the theatrical stage.


"Leila and Rashid, Egyptian Americans with ties to Cairo, attempt to solve their relationship issues by inviting a relative stranger into their bedroom to engage in a threesome. What begins as a hilariously awkward evening soon becomes an experience fraught with secrets, raising issues of sexism, possession and independence."


It has been a wonderful few years that we have been able to work with Mark Siano at ACT, and now we congratulate him and wish him great success as he leaves ACT to run his own publicity agency and to produce his own shows. Look for a post about his new show Bohemia in the near future.

Thanks, Mark!


Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Theatrical Promo Photos

ACT Theatre, Seattle WA

It is always a pleasure to work with the folks at ACT. This past spring I worked with them on photos to promote their 25th anniversary production of Tennessee Williams' play Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. This photo session produced one of the billboards our photos have been appearing on around Seattle.


Here are a few more images from the session


We love working with theatre groups. Let us know if we can be of service to you for your next production.




Happy Birthday, Melissa!

Melissa stated right at the beginning that most people know her as a happy, sweet mom, but for her birthday photo shoot she wanted to capture other aspects of her personality. We collaborated on 3 scenes with her: her tea party, her shaman presence (she made that awesome antler headpiece!), and her darker 'Bono' persona. She choose her favorite 25 photos and we put together black silk "artist's portfolio box" full of the matted prints for her. 

Contact us to help celebrate your special occasions.
