Best of 2017!

Champagne toasts and sparklers led us into the 2017 New Year and in just a few hours I was on my way to the coldest shoot I’ve ever done.  The year for A.Lorae Photography started out with a beautiful outdoor wedding in below freezing temps and ended with a senior photo shoot in shorts and a t-shirt.  In between there were concerts, protests, new babies, birthdays (1st and 90th), friends, family, new pets, adoption books, and more than a few weddings.  So thankful for all of the amazing people and things that I got to photograph this year!  I hope you enjoy some of my favorites as much as I enjoyed taking them!

Images from Seattle Pride 2015!

I don’t know that there are many events in Seattle that bring out so many colorful subjects. . . in all senses of the phrase.  We spent the day celebrating with thousands upon thousands of people lining the streets of downtown.  I don’t need to write much. . .the photos speak for themselves.  Just wanted to share all of this happiness in imagery!  Happy Pride everyone!

I am entering the blogosphere for the first time, and I can’t say that it’s easy. As intimidating as it might be, I feel like I want to say more about the experiences that I have in this photography journey.

Some of it may just be for me . . . the story to remember behind the photograph before I get too far removed to remember it . . . and some of it might be helpful for others . . . the great decorating tip that I saw at a wedding, or a vendor that was awesome that I worked with, or a way to arrange the big wedding day that might be fun . . . it could turn into lots of things. What I hope it won’t be: boring.

So, if you are interested in photography, interested in me, a fan of A.Lorae Photography, bored out of your mind at work, or taking a time out at home, join me for this journey. I love comments and critiques.
