Wearable Arts

Each year the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council steps out to create an absolutely amazing event: Wearable Arts.

It is one of the largest events in Juneau each year, and I can only presume that it will continue to grow. Artists work for months in advance to prepare pieces of art that they or their model will strut down the runway in front of an at-capacity audience in Centennial Hall. Every piece is amazing; we have some phenomenal talent in Juneau!

In short, you don’t want to miss it.

But, over the last few years, that’s exactly what I did. With my wedding & portrait photography, a full time job, being married (etc, etc) photography was often kept (somewhat intentionally) on the backburner in order to prepare for the upcoming spring and summer busyness.

This year though, Nancy reached out to ask if I could be the primary event photographer as their normal go-to-gal, Seanna Hines (Seanna O’Sullivan Photography) was unavailable this year. I agreed (somewhat reluctantly) as being away from Heather with only 4 weeks to go in our pregnancy isn’t so appealing.

Hello Again

I’ve been away from the blog for what feels like a long, long time. I’ll be starting to post a few to try to catch up and get back to the place of regular updates now that life has started to level out. With a baby on the way (our first), a job change, a move, car purchases & travel, our plates have been full. Finally though, my shoulders are starting to drop.

So, to tide you over, here’s a selfie of two remarkably busy individuals who are excited about life and our future.

Alumni & Friends

This last Saturday, Heather and I volunteered to assist the UAS Alumni & Friends Golf Tournament in Haines. We would meet an Allen Marine boat in the morning, load up, and then head towards Haines to play on their 9-hole course. We’d have lunch waiting for us at the course and the golfers would set off to their ways. Dinner would be served during the return trip to Juneau. And, because we’re in Southeast Alaska waters, the likelihood was high to make a couple of stops for wildlife along the way.

As a volunteer, my primary duty was to be a schlepper of stuff (golf bags, coolers, etc, etc), but at the last minute I realized that I could serve in an additional capacity: with my camera! I decided that I would photograph the earlier parts of the day and then for the boat ride home, I’d have a slideshow rolling to let people look back on the day. Easy right?

In retrospect, everything went pretty darn smoothly. I culled to somewhere around 100 photos on my laptop, set up a flatscreen TV (secured with all sorts of tape), and got the show rolling just as passengers were loading back on the boat. The show was well received, and seemed to make for a fun conversation piece. Anyhow, I thought I’d share all of the images from the collection. See the rest of the photos after the jump.

Enjoy!

Long Day


Something caught my attention here. Maybe it's the beauty in spite of the telephone poles & cell towers & sirens & abandoned vehicles? #feelingcontemplative #leavingwork #longday
