Swings in the Arboretum

Here is a copy of the initial message I received from Polly: “Hi, my name is Polly Tam. I’m 23. Never done any type of professional photography session before. I’m looking for just fun, artsy, classy, and of course beautiful photos of me to send off to family, friends, and just for personal keeping. I’m interested in working with you. I saw some of your photos and i like your style. Hopefully we can work together. I Hope to hear from you soon!” After reading this I called Polly and we began to brainstorm, finally selecting about 6 outfits and photographing in Seattle’s beautiful Arboretum, on the water at Madison Park, Belltown and finishing up on the pier at Greenlake. Polly has a large extended family, half of which live in China and really was looking to have someone capture her for who she is…I think we were both very excited about the results!

Testimonial from Polly: “Ahhhh Julian you are so wonderful. I (looked at my gallery) to see my pics and “blam,” there I am. It’s awesome..that made me feel special. My mom is impressed. Anyway, I was looking at the pictures, wow you are amazing! I picked around 70-80 that I liked so far. I’m just waiting on friends and family (who knows how long that will take). Gosh, I had so much fun that I already have another session I want to do with you in mind!!”
