Recently I read this quote from Henri Nouwen in his book Reaching Out:
“Hospitality means primarily the creation of free space where the stranger can enter and become a friend instead of an enemy. Hospitality is not to change people, but to offer them space where change can take place. It is not to bring men and women over to our side, but to offer freedom not disturbed by dividing lines.”
I couldn’t help but think of Addie. Her hospitality to me has been literal and figurative, and I’m so grateful to call her a friend. Besides, look how beautiful her family is?
My friend Bridget showed me Spencer Island for the very first time this summer, and it’s now topping the list of fantastic places to let the kids run free. So satisfying that her family is the first I get to photograph here, and sunset sessions are my favorite.
The leaves are starting to turn and I can hardly wait to heat up my wax and begin to create indoors. If you missed my spring workshop now is your chance to learn this awesome technique.
FAll ENCAUSTIC WORKSHOP
November 16th, 2014
The 200.00 class fee includes, instruction, wax, glue, tape, three 4×6 or 4×4 boards, sandpaper, and use of all the heat tools needed. I will have additional boards for sale as well, however my sizes will not exceed 5×7 because the larger the piece, the harder it is to work with. You can also purchase boards at Artist and Craftsman in the university district. They are called Elephant cradleboards. Please let me know in advance if you would like to buy the boards from me, so that I purchase enough ahead of time. : )
How incredible would it be if you make your holiday gifts this year?!

I hope to see you in class this November!
Sometimes I think it’s hard to see yourself as others do, especially when you are pregnant. It always astounds me that the women I capture have no idea how gorgeous they are. I recently had the honor of capturing one such woman and I am so glad she decided to do a maternity session! This beautiful woman is carrying twins and is doing a fantastic job! He husband was wonderful and kept saying how lucky he felt. I felt lucky too. She glows. Absolutely glows! Sometimes it takes an outside perspective to see how you truly shine.
