That's what I said..Seattle SUNSHINE. Everyone always thinks Seattle is one big rain storm but we've been there a few times now since our friends moved there last year and haven't noticed that at all. It's been beautiful with small occasionals sprinkles and yes, some overcast skys - but you know how I love those! A couple of years ago as I was starting my business,  I shot a wedding here for a darling little artsy couple - she was an aspiring photographer and he a musician - who moved to Seattle after their vows. That couple was . I don't think I need to say anything more! They are a Seattle power couple now, rockin' the photography and music world! I NEVER have my picture taken but I so love their work that I knew I wanted to have her work some magic for my family - or the last part of it anyway since we just have our little Kate left at home now. So we planned another trip to Seattle - around her availability - and fashioned a portrait session in the streets of Seattle with the Rhoads.  I am a Mad Men freak. I LOVE that show.  TIVO it, watch it, rewind it and watch it again, make Jay watch it with me. (He likes it too)  It reminds me in so many ways of my childhood and all the things I grew up with as a child and I wanted to be the grown up in that era for just a little while. So there was this great 60's dress in Balls (costume room at Sophia's mom's house), a killer fedora for Jay, and a cute little school dress for Kate - all 60's era ala MAD MEN.  Sarah Rhoads gets me. (I think it's because she is me 25 years ago) - I totally trusted her and just followed her lead and tried to be a good "client".  Here's a few I LOVE and there's more Dunham Mad Men on her blog SarahRhoads.com/blog/ so go see and leave her a comment too. Thanks Sarah & Chris!
