Graffiti Wall


My friend Sarah tipped me off to an awesome photo shoot location in Seattle. It's the back of a warehouse that is totally covered with Graffiti. It is "AMAZING"! The above picture is of the whole wall I found online. It doesn't look the same anymore though because it's always changing. The owner of the warehouse is well aware and welcomes it. We found a can of spray paint and my kids left their mark...CTR (Choose The Right), how funny is that! I went on the shoot with my 2 fabulous photographer friends Melissa and Sue. They are a big part of my desire to really push forward and get better at this, I'm so grateful for all their help! I still have tons more to edit but here's a few favorites...Oh, we ran into lighting issues big time. I was hoping that since it was the back of a building it would be in shade but no such luck. We were there at 11:00 am with the sun beating right down on us. So next time I shoot there it will be in the evening. Live and learn...that's what this blog is all about.

Fun location! It's so hard to get the perfect lighting, isn't it? Too much sun is bad, not enough sun is bad...it can be so frustrating! I've learned to just take my camera everywhere because you never know when a photo op will present itself and the light will be just perfect! :)

I simply love the title photo of Taylor and the use of hot pink. What a wonderful way to start your website. I like the wording, especially. I love the photo of Talulla...she's so cute! I really like Tate's photo on the tracks in black and white.

Love the Tallulah box shot!! I sent your other pictures today, it has her butt shots in it...hee hee. I also got a great one of Tate and a spray can. Taylor's pictures are awesome, perfect type of pose for her and the wall! I had a lot of fun, can't wait till next time, it was so fun to get together...sometime we'll have to do it w/o kids...that'd be nice.
