Quinn And Ryan! Orcas Island Love!

What!!!  I cannot imagine anything more delightful that Quinn and Ryan with their amazing crew of friends.  The Odd Fellows Hall on Orcas Island is one of my all time favorite venues.  There are so many portrait opportunities at it’s doorstep.  You will be seeing a lot of posts from me this year with this fun venue.  Thank you Bella Umbrella for providing us with some beautiful umbrellas to put our mind at ease for rainy out door portraits!  Check out their website here!

The Amazing Djuna! Orcas Island Yoga Teacher

It is such a treat when healers and teachers come in for some professional portraits.  I am so inspired by Djuna and I was so excited to reconnect with her on this project. I have seen her career grow and blossom over the years, and I must say what an amazing presence she holds.  If you ever have a chance to study with her, I would jump on it!  Here is her Facebook page where she lists a lot of her offerings, and also those of her teacher Tias Little.
