Soaking Up Seattle

Overcast skies. Drizzly afternoons. Cozy clothes. Warm cups of coffee and clam chowder (in bread bowls, of course). Walks through the Pike Place Market. All things that make Seattle, well, Seattle. In college, Jordan’s school soccer team visited Seattle twice per year for road trips, and, ever since, he’s been dying to take Amy back with him. Last week, he finally got the chance! Seattle was one of two cities we visited in the Pacific Northwest last week to teach our 5 Steps to Publication for photographers. The summer sun was in full force the entire time we were there, so the time we did have in Jordan’s favorite places weren’t quite the quintessential cloudy, snuggly Seattle moments he’d been hoping for, but it was still fun showing her a place he’d been waiting to take her for so many years! Here are a few highlights from our time in the Emerald City!

We stayed with our friend and fellow photographer, Melissa Kilner, at her home in Gig Harbor about 45 minutes south of Seattle. She’s lives right near this beautiful marina/harbor/place where boats live (we never know the difference) and took us for breakfast on our first morning there. We sipped on the largest, most delicious white mocha lattes we’e ever seen in our life — ever — and ate an order of pulled pork Eggs Benedict that nearly left us in a food coma for days. Plus, the view was pretty spectacular. Not a bad way to start our trip, not a bad way at all!

Melissa smiles all the time and is so much fun to be around! We laughed more in one morning than we’d laughed in a long time, like make-sure-you-don’t-take-a-bite-while-she’s-talking-or-it’ll-come-through-your-nose laughing!

Thanks again for hosting us, Melissa! Let’s not do this again for a while, though, deal? Laughing that much in such a short amount of time might kill us!

We spent a few hours walking through the farmers market in downtown Seattle.

The original Starbucks! We wanted to go inside, but the line was too long, so we settled for a photo in front of the sign.

Jordan’s FAVORITE place in the market is Chukar Cherries. He’s been talking to Amy about it for years! They make the most amazing chocolate-covered cherries, so every time Jordan visits Seattle he makes sure to sample all of their new flavors before purchasing two bags of the most classic flavors they have: milk and dark chocolate. You guys, he might even like these better than Blue Bell (gasp!).

Amy hates seafood (a flaw that Jordan overlooks), but it was fun to cruise through the market and see all the different varieties of fresh fish, as well as the beautiful bouquets of fresh flowers everywhere, too!

For the Seattle event, Erica Owens graciously opened up her studio for us. We had so much fun spending time in community with so many great photographers and sharing our practical tips for shooting editorially and getting published. Well, if you look at this photo, Amy’s teaching about publication. Jordan’s trying to remember NOT to use wizard hands when it’s his turn to talk.

Phew! No wizard hands were caught this time. Crisis averted.

Seattle, you have an awesome group of Showiteers! We loved meeting all of you and can’t wait to come back again in the future!
