photoshoot // vespa girl

My dear friend {Savanna} got a brand new red Vespa this year. She’s been wanting one for years and especially more after her recent trip to Italy.  I’ve been wanting to do another photo project and I thought this was a good opportunity because Vespa and our gorgeous sunny weather = perfect #summervibes.  The location that we picked for the was West Seattle. {Savanna’s} family owned the restaurant Cafe Revo – a cozy candle-lit space that focused on Northern Italian food. The restaurant also showcased a mural at the exterior of a lady on a Vespa. The lady’s name is Zetta after the middle name of {Savanna’s} great Grandma. {Savanna did I get that right?}  It was important to take photographs in front of the mural. It’s always beautiful and full circle. Here is a glimpse of the Vespa girl photo shoot…

Sounders Fashion

Most of my blog readers know that I’m a huge Seattle Sounders fan. Today was the last home game for the regular Sounders season. Happy to say we ended with a win and we earned a spot in the playoffs. I’m so thrilled. My friend {Molly} and I have been season ticket holders for many years and have really gotten to know the players and have admired their amazing athleticism, but we also noticed their fashion. Love. Here is a glimpse of Sounders fashion {Stefan Frei, Christian Roldan, Roman Torres, Nelson Valdez, Nicolas Lodeiro, Aaron Kovar, and Jordan Morris}…

Tonight was all about YSL fashion.  The Seattle Art Museum presents Yves Saint Laurent: The Perfection of Style, showcasing highlights from the legendary designer’s 44-year career. Drawn from the collection of the Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent, the exhibition features new acquisitions by the Foundation that have never been shown publicly before. My friend {Maggie} and I had a fashion date and really enjoyed the work of YSL – master couturier and fashion pioneer.  The exhibit features over 100 couture pieces. It’s quite spectacular.

Seattle photography

Happy Weekend Sparkles! Elliot is turning 1 this month. Crazy how fast a year goes by. Elliot is the daughter of my dear, dear friend {Keysha}.  We spent an afternoon at Seattle’s Volunteer Park and the weather was perfect for a park photo shoot.  This photo shoot was all about bows + balloons + ruffles. Little Elliot was so adorable and I loved taking photos of her.  To see all the photos, visit the online gallery.   Happy Birthday little Miss Elliot. You will be walking in no time. Here is a glimpse of the Sweet Elliot photo shoot

summer nights

Hello Summer. project 2015 continues and we have reached wk. 028. project 2015 showcases a different photo filter/style weekly. This week I played around with the app Aillis, which was formally called LINE.  This week it was all about Toys. This filter pops the photography with depth and saturation – just like toys! It’s the perfect filter for summer days and nights!  Here is a glimpse of my week…

50 Shades of Grey

50 Shades of Grey graphic

In honor of the movie 50 Shades of Grey debuting this week, I decided to share a graphic that I did with my friend {Savanna}. Back in 2012, Seattle’s Space Needle celebrated its 50th Anniversary.  An International design contest was held to design the look for the top of the Space Needle and celebrate its 50th birthday.  One day, on a rainy weekday, {Savanna} and I were sitting in a coffee shop and we were talking about the popular book at the time, 50 Shades of Grey.  We were contemplating on entering the contest. For some reason, through our silly discussion, we were talking about the Space Needle, the rainy  Seattle gray weather, the book that was set in Seattle, and other design talk that we came up with idea of doing a Pantone inspired 50 Shades of Grey color wheel as our design.  50 colors of Grey – and all named a unique name that ties in with Seattle. We were so excited about our design and thought we had a good chance of winning. We didn’t even make the top 6 and if you saw the top 6 you be like “huh?!!?!”. Serious, we were not bitter at all, but the winning design was seriously a head-scratcher.  Anyway, go see the movie and drool over Jamie Dornan. Happy Friday ! – xoxo SADV
