Meet David I.::Photoshoot by Martin Harris

A few weeks ago, Martin had the pleasure of conducting a Photoshoot with a very talented, very charismatic guy named David.  David, who is also a good friend of ours, is getting ready to release his single titled, “Summer’s End”, by the end of this week.  He asked Martin if he could handle the photography aspect in preparation of his single release.

Here are some samples of the pictures Martin took of David around Seattle.  I was so impressed with the work Martin did on this job.  This is only a few of over a hundred pictures he took of David which to me all presented itself like artistic works of art!    

I’ll have a new post up by Friday, a continuation of this post, to include a link to David’s single once he has released it!  I’ll also post a few more pics from this shoot ….So stay tuned!

Please leave any form of feedback you may have…I’m sure Martin will appreciate it!

Amanda’s “Coffee Joe” Baby Shower 2009

One of my dearest friends Amanda, had her baby shower this past Sunday aboard the “DESTINY” yacht with Waterway cruises in Seattle.  It was a baby shower that definitely needs to be featured in a magazine!

My girl is a top party planner, that just knows how to make her spreads look beautiful.  I know she put in work for this, even though it was thrown by her Mom and Aunt, it definitely has her signature touch!

I’m so looking forward to welcoming baby Gabe into the world!  Amanda has been my friend since kindergarten, and she’s been like a sister to me.  Her kids are my nephews.  I can’t wait to meet nephew #2!

I also had the pleasure in being her photographer for the day.  She is also a photographer, but of course there was no way she was going to be able to take her own pictures!  So I hope I did good by her, though I’m a little rusty since building our new house and moving, I haven’t taken pics in quite some time.  I got a new camera on my birthday last year (thanks Babe!) and this is really the first funtion I’ve taken pics with it! 

By the way… I made the diaper cake!  Thanks to the help of my friend Lee Ann that made one for my cousin Jace a few weeks ago!!

Shout out to Martin for helping me with editing!  Enjoy!

Playing with Lightroom

I just downloaded some pics that I took last summer.  I totally forgot about some SD cards I had put up.  This is one of my favs, I tried some funky presets for Lightroom I had gotten off some site.  I really like this one so I thought I’d share.  Its called Old Skool toning.  Makes me think of them old Kodak camera’s back in the day…remember those? the ones that were hella wide but skinny??  And after you took the picture the flash made a weird noise like it was possessed?? LOL.

This is my son Amari.  Favorite kicks:   Jordans, all day everyday.

KIRK AND SIMONE WEDDING

We recently took a family vacation to NY last October to attend the wedding of very close friends of ours. The wedding took place at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens.  We were not the official photographers but we did get some great shots worth sharing. The wedding was one of the most beautiful and romantic ones, one of our favorite couples on Earth, and all the more special as Martin was one of the groomsmen.
