Moisture Festival 2018

Another year, another incredible Moisture Festival! I’ve been doing this so many years now I might just make a book soon!    Capturing all of the shenanigans backstage and small details and moments is my favorite part of the festival and I don’t take it for granted! Meeting performers of all ages and walks of …

Sunset Supper 2016

Another summer goes by and another year closer to helping raise money for the new Pike Place Market Expansion! I spent the end of my birthday week shooting photos for the Pike Place Foundation’s annual event, Sunset Supper. One ticket for the evening gets you such a vast variety of local food and drinks, I …

The Yingblooms Get Hitched!

Andrew and Phyllis have got to be the most genuinely HAPPIEST people I have ever met. Their smiles exhilarate and energize any room they walk into. Now to be fair, I did get to see them on what is supposed to be the happiest day of their lives, and to be honest, I think that this day …

Arcade Lights 2016

What has quickly become one of my favorite things about Spring, is looking forward to Arcade Lights. I have so enjoyed my last couple of years being a part of this fundraiser from working the photo both to being a roaming photographer (2015). It’s always so amazing to see the community rally together and how much …

Backstage: The magic of Moisture Festival

I was never one of those kids who dreamed of running away to the join the circus, but that’s probably because I developed a fear of clowns (thanks a lot IT) and have never really been to the circus. Now that I’m much older and a little bit wiser, I wish I had at LEAST considered …

Beast Feast: Round 2 and 3

It’s come to my attention that my first beast feast experience is now a little outdated (the advice has not changed so definitely still refer to it!). Being that it is one of the only articles on my site that consistently still gets views and likes, I feel it’s about time to update the information. I …

Seapine Brewing Company

Last night was spent celebrating the expansion and new home of Seapine Brewery! Congrats to Drew and Adam on the expansion! If you haven’t had a chance yet, visit them at their new location at 2959 Utah Avenue S, Seattle, WA 98134! I’m not usually a fan of saisons, but I do love the Seapine …

Arcade Lights 2015

You know how it goes. Food and fun! And we raised $66,000 for the market in just a few hours! Learn more from the Pike Place Foundation!    This girl and her dad were the cutest pizza slingers and were a hit all night! I miss living across the street from them.          …

Andrew and Susy Benefit

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, but one of the things I love about the Seattle music scene is the great comradery. Everyone wants to see each other succeed. When a terrible fire tore through Andrew and Susy’s apartment after the holidays, everyone banded together to keep these two afloat while they …

The End is Over – My First Album Art!

Five years ago we said goodbye to The Senate. What was intended on a one time Senate reunion after 5 years, sold out The Tractor in a couple days, and the guys ended up turning it into a mini reunion, summer tour and all! What fans also didn’t know was the band was planning on releasing another …

One Year of Being Home

Today is Mother’s Day. Besides the general I am thankful for my mom, who has gone through more than I could ever imagine to have to go through in my life, I am so thankful for everything in my life now. Today also marks the year that I have been home since my travels. It …

Austin Jenckes and Polecat @ The Crocodile

Once upon I time, I fell in love with a voice at a coffeeshop in college. Naturally, we became friends and shared many laughs, gelato, and long talks. But I graduated and left Bellingham and just as he was emerging into the Seattle music scene a few years later, I scampered off onto a world …

How to Conquer the Beast Feast – Radiator Whiskey

For the incredible deal of $300 (Seriously, view this album to see how much work goes into this), you and up to 20 of your friends can enjoy a night of feasting on 50 pounds of smoked and roasted meat (among some other dishes). [Note: Since this post was published, the going-rate for the dinner …

Preview: Heels to the Hardwood in Studio

Since I unexpectedly have the night off, I guess I should take the moment and actually blog something that hasn’t been sitting on the shelves for weeks. For the last weekish, I’ve been cooped up in the studio with Heels to the Hardwood at Rogue Island Entertainment. It’s definitely giving me a taste of the …

Parzival

That’s no band name, that is the real first name of my friend Parzival Popof. I met Parzival because he had teamed up with my friend Jesse to make music. So when I caught them one evening during an art walk in the historical area of downtown Seattle, the first thing I was curious about …

Parzival in Studio

Parzival wanted some photos documenting his work in progress. It was a first for me and a fun afternoon! Thanks Parzival for sharing the afternoon with me!             Like me!

Allen Stone

Love me some Allen Stone. There was a bit of hype about him, but I wasn’t really familiar with him. Ben told me a funny story how his brother used to be Allen’s pastor back in the day and told me that Allen is genuinely one of the nicest guys so I put him on …

Sailing to Victoria

It was only fitting that my last weekend in Seattle before my big trip involved an international sailing trip. Since I was hosting a goodbye BBQ I couldn’t make the first leg from Seattle to Port Townsend, but meeting the crew in Port Townsend early in the morning was easy. I forgot my camera this time …

The Local Strangers

Oh these two silly kids. An acoustic duo with some kick in their style that I seem to keep missing everywhere, but finally caught them at an open mic night. I am crazy jealous of Aubrey’s beautiful hair and her sultry voice is to die for. And then, what is there not to love about …

My Goodness

Rock out. I have only seen My Goodness once at a KEXP summer show, but I loved them. Powerful, raw, blues, rock. These two guys know how to bring the energy. Watch the video of them live from this show: Like me!

Review: Matt’s in the Market – COPPER RIVER SALMON!

Sorry this entry comes over a week late. As most of you foodies know, Copper River Salmon is here!! For those of you who are unfamiliar or don’t know what the great who-hah is about this amazing fish, I’ll give you a quick run down. What’s the big deal about Copper River Salmon? Copper River …
