The moment I knew photography was my passion

Feb 13, 2012

This is the story of how I discovered my passion of photography. It starts, however, with a boy. We were going to get married, that was the decision. He knew we were meant to be together forever. Then, like the practical girl that I was, I explained to the boy that we had to get […]

Overcoming the time excuse

Feb 6, 2012

I used to say I didn’t have any time for Photography. Last week I sorted through my Photograph archives from the past 10 years. I captured thousands of images. The only thing I didn’t make time for was doing the kind of Photography I wanted. I’ve never stopped taking photographs, but I have let time […]

Last minute show!

Feb 2, 2012

I spent last night preparing some new work for the Grand Opening of Photosynthesis, a Massage Studio in the Admiral Neighborhood on the West Seattle Peninsula. My first look at the new space was on Tuesday, and it has much more wall space than I was expecting!¬† The owners have worked hard putting in new […]

The Surprise + January’s Best

Jan 30, 2012

Yesterday I ran into my neighbor. He said he and his wife saw my work up at Sugar Rush, and his tone expressed surprise, “I didn’t know you were a Photographer…You have really great work.” Something about this conversation caused me to feel the need to explain that yes, I was a Photographer, but I […]

Goals and Transformers

Jan 23, 2012

As soon as my Photography show was up on the walls at Sugar Rush Coffee and Baking Company I thought to myself, “What next?” And, people started asking me the same question after the Opening Reception. I thought to myself that I wanted to do something a little different, a project or series, but I […]

Learning Curve

Jan 19, 2012

Wedding Photography was easy. It was a way to use my love of Photography in a straight forward way as a service. You hired me, I did my job, and got paid. There was more to it than that, but that was the basic bones of it. Now that I’m entering the art photography world, […]

Rainbow of Life Show: Thank you + Review

Jan 15, 2012

The best part of the show was hearing from a cousin, “Wow, Holli, I didn’t know you did this!” It was fun to see so many friends and family members come out to see my work: big and pretty and up on a wall. The comments and compliments of strangers was even more delightful, because […]

Photography Cards with a cause

Jan 11, 2012

I am selling Photography cards to provide a way for folks to purchase a show image in a way that is very affordable, $3.00 per card. They are also being given away for a good cause: If you bring 2 non-perishable food items to donate, you’ll get a card as a thank you! A main […]

Photography Show Countdown: Sneak Peek 7

Jan 10, 2012

This is how we viewed Fireworks this past 4th of July: Through the window out toward the alley. Our little ones needed to get to bed, so we didn’t go out to one of the hot viewing points here in Seattle. And, you know what? It was amazing. I thought it was funny to see […]

Photography Show Countdown: Sneak Peek 6

Jan 9, 2012

Living in the Northwest, I have always loved Ferns and the grow prolifically around here. This is one of the smallest pieces in the show at 5×7, because I was using my Cannon Powershot when I captured this photograph. I usually carry this “pocket” camera when I’m heading to the park with my kids. Since […]
