How to take all day getting to Portland (and love every minute of it): 

  • Ensure that it is a warm, sunny day
  • Take every back road, no matter how small
  • Spend lots of time wandering around the vistas in the Capitol State Forest

Spring is the time of year when Winter and Summer, much like lovers, do their best to separate their tricky, tricky love. It’s a messy, devastating separation in which both come running back again and again, overcome by their desire, boredom, their hatred — all of their complex and passion-filled emotions. 

A day can go from sun to thunder and back again. Rain comes in sideways and in sheets, only to be fought back against by the striking beauty of the tree blossoms.

Such an interesting season, no?

In Seattle, you grow inevitably fond of the soft but ever-present rain we experience here; although I prefer it in the Autumn. Springtime finds me ready to shed the emotional weather and get into Summer already. I need the warmth on my face. I need to ability to take my shoes off on grass without coming out of it with mud caked between my toes.

So I’ve taken to capturing the delight of those days when Spring’s sun takes over in full force, knocking aside winter in its attempt to break ties, break free. 

Here is a music video for a local Seattle band that I worked on as Assistant Director around this time last year. And by worked on, I mean dedicated every spare moment I had for over a month helping concept, plan, organize, help art direct, produce wardrobe, and being a general morale-booster, run-around gal, and moral support babe. But maybe that’s really what an Assistant Director does, when you get down to it.

It’s averaged about 2,000 views on YouTube each month that it’s been up (plus more on Vimeo), and we have another one for this band’s new album in the works right now. :D

My dad and I took some double-exposed slides. He did the first exposure in New York and I did the second in Seattle. For some reason the New York images are stronger, but they still came out pretty well!

Multiple exposures 4 lyfe! I absolutely love this concept/project. Brittany always has the best ideas for this kind of stuff.(Also, the reason the Seattle pictures are ghosted is because the film was already slightly exposed when the second picture was taken. I personally love the effect and take a lot of daytime doubles, but you can also get doubles without the ghost by having the first exposure include dark/black space)
