That’s the theme for this year’s Champagne Gala Brunch at Salty’s on Alki benefitting the Southwest Seattle Historical Society. This important group promotes local heritage. What could be more important than saving the Old Homestead? Or the Admiral Theater? The Log House Museum is a West Seattle gem!
Mom called in a panic…do we have time to meet the yearbook deadline? Of course! I met up with Emily at Lincoln Park.

She was an easy subject for my philosophy on shooting…simple, honest, real.
