BY RACHAEL REIS | I like to capture happiness. People show their true happiness while making art, being with the ones they love, and while dancing--and I love the vibe from people dancing, because I believe it helps them open up and feel more comfortable--enough so that you’ll find me out on the floor dancing and capturing moments at the same time. I’m not a huge fan of posed photography, because shooting people in action, in those REAL moments, while they’re creating, dancing, making music, that’s what calls to me. READ MORE

Spring Style Guide | Seattle Portrait Photographers | Evidence of Life Photography

Above all, we believe what you wear to your portrait session should reflect your character and personal style. But, if you feel like you're stuck or unsure how to plan your wardrobe for photos this spring, here's a little inspiration based on current trends in color and fashion that are sure to help you look and feel fabulous in front of the camera.

Welcome to your new home | Seattle Lifestyle Photographer | Evidence of Life Photography

A new year and new beginnings. It's always so wonderful to hear from those whose lives you have captured in the past. We captured J.D. and Lani's engagement and wedding stories back in 2009 and were thrilled when they came to us with the news that they had purchased their first home! And wanted to document their first day after receiving the keys. A perfect little home to celebrate past memories and create many, many new ones.
