Sharlane is a mother, a photographer, and our friend. This year began like a fairy tale, complete with a magical proposal from the man she loves. Like too many fairy tales, this one turned dark as Sharlane was diagnosed with cancer even before the wedding planning could begin. The diagnosis itself is scary enough, but so are the crushing costs associated. This is our attempt to help our friend, who has helped so many others herself.

The benefit we are throwing is all about love, life, laughter and art. We are so excited about the donated items, and know that even if you don’t know Sharlane you can find something amazing to spend your money on for a Valentine’s Day gift. In addition to buying something über cool and impressing your friends, you will also receive that warm fuzzy feeling from helping an amazing person.

You can help Sharlane in four (4) easy ways:
·       Donate money (it’s PayPal — too easy!): http://weheartsharlane.showitsite.com/#/help/
·       Donate an item (great way to gain exposure and showcase your work for an amazing cause): helpsharlane@gmail.com
·       Bid on a silent auction item on Feb 4th (check out the list of amazing goods): http://weheartsharlane.showitsite.com/#/what-to-expect/

New Senior Portraits!

Here are a few senior portraits I shot this past fall.

GSBA Humanitarian Award Recipients!

Last month I was asked to do all the portraits for The Greater Seattle Business Association Humanitarian Award recipients.  Here are the results! Congratulations to everyone who won!

Proud of my mom!

My mom is an amazing quilter. She is so talented but oh so modest. My mom and dad design and make the most gorgeous quilts. I was thrilled to get an e-mail from her that she was mentioned on Superior Thread’s blog for her most recent quilt. I thought I would brag a little since it isn’t often you get to brag about your parents. To see her most recent quilt, please visit this link for Superior threads. Enjoy!

Mary Margaret and Seth get married at Greenbank Farms on Whidbey Island

Mary Margaret and Seth met through a mutual friend at their BBQ. Eventually they decided to get engaged on their sofa over breakfast on a Sunday morning. Their chihuahua and border collie were their witnesses. They chose Whidbey Island for their wedding after spending a lot of time together at Mary Margaret’s weekend house in Greenbank. They spend 2-3 weekends a month there talking, cooking and taking the dogs to the beach. When they were planning the wedding it was the obvious choice. They booked the Greenbank Farm within 3 days of being engaged. It is about a mile from their weekend getaway. The weather was a bit rainy but they were troopers! We did a lot of their portraits outside despite the pouring rain and the ceremony was moved indoors. It was a beautiful wedding and friends and family came from all over the country.

Here is the list of the Vendors:

Photography- Dani Weiss Photography

Caterer- The Savory Gourmet

Florist- Forget Me Not Flower Farm

Ceremony and Reception Facility- The Greenbank Farm

Pie- Whidbey Pies Cafe

Ice Cream- Empire Ice Cream
