The night before we shot I came down with a fever. It must have been my body telling me how EPICLY hot this shoot was going to be because I. AM. straight-up floored by Elisa in these pictures. Thankfully, the fever broke a as quickly as it came, so we got to take full advantage of the EMP Suite at The Alexis Hotel that she managed to score us. It was seriously unreal!

Side-note: Never be afraid to ask for an upgrade when you check-in. They will *give* you one a lot more than you might expect, it’s crazy (of course, it helps to know someone on the inside, like Elisa did). Any who, I love this hotel and this woman and I feel so very lucky to have had the chance to photograph her!

    Sarah - Those last 3 are AMAZING!!! Love it!ReplyCancel


A couple weeks ago I was photographed nude by Easton Richmond, a phenomenal fine art photographer. I was unabashedly one of those people who absolutely, never, no-way, nuh-uh, are you kidding me, did not think I would. Ever. Do. Something. Like this. And yet I did it? I’m on the other side of it now and I did it. How the heck did that happen? Well, I’m about to do my best to explain how I got from one crazy end of the spectrum, to being on the complete opposite end – actually looking forward to the next time!

The absolute hardest part for me was saying yes to the date. Being the schedule-obsessed person that I am, to me that was the moment when I could no longer change my mind. I think it took me roughly 5 days to respond to that email. More than once I would start thinking about it and momentarily allow myself to give in to the little voice saying – “What are you thinking? You can’t possibly do this!” Somehow, in a fit of confidence and strength (brought on by sun and beer) I worked up the courage to respond to the email with a meager, “Sounds good.” I was not feeling super pumped but I was feeling determined.

    Briauna Mariah - […] realize something deep, realizing, “That’s me, that’s beautiful, I’m beautiful!” (Read about Dana Kae’s profound, beautiful experience here). Inspiration is health and joy, like a woman staying fit for 22 years, not in it for the results, […]ReplyCancel

This incredible woman simply took my breath away. Partially by being absolutely hilarious, but mostly by being a phenomenal and enthusiastic subject. We shot at the Sorrento Hotel – one of my absolute favorite hotels for boudoir sessions in Seattle. There is an inset window in the bathroom… let me repeat myself – an inset window in the bathroom!! And do you see that dresser and mirror? Are you kidding me? It. is. so boudoir.
