I started following bymisha a while back and I’ve always loved her gypsy popup tent. One Sunday on a whim I went to the Fremont Sunday Market and finally got the chance to meet Malia in person. Malia moved here from Hawaii and is bringing her bohemian spirit and style to the PNW. Her shop is filled with beautiful handmade dream catchers, exotic jewelry and awesome vintage finds. bymisha is in Seattle every Sunday and also goes to Puyallup too for those of us a little further down south. If you can’t make it to her rad gypsy tent, you can purchase everything from her website too! It’s actually hard to express how much I enjoyed photographing her “sunseeker lookbook”. I’m over the moon and back about what we captured! The location, the models, the styling, the light…I was in creative, metallic tattoo, free-spirit heaven. Thank you to our awesome models, Jordan Lydia (A Yin Yoga teacher in Everett) and Jessica from His and Her Fashion for braving the cold and looking incredible in every shot. I hope you all enjoy these images as much as I do and I can’t wait to work Shop by Misha again in the future! *If you want to see me in action you can check out Malia’s blog!

It was my absolute pleasure to photograph this wonderful momma and her daughter Brittany!  I’m so thankful for the reminder of how precious each day is. Laugh more. Dance more. Love more!

Here is part of Brandi’s nomination story-

“She is a strong, sweet, caring, loving person. Brandi is currently going through chemo. I just think she has such a kind happy soul. I’m truly sad for her what she is battling but if something could cheer her up I believe this might..she could have some photos done with her kids and look back and know she was going through probably the hardest time of her life but could still smile!”

I love this nomination! Why trying times hit, I hope we can all look for ways to uplift each other. Thank you Ashley for your loving heart.

How Project Poppi works: Once a month I will photograph a person, couple or family who can benefit from a free photo session from me. I will provide them with a session and a disc OR prints, which ever they choose. You can nominate a person, couple or family via Facebook in a private message or email me at kristina@poppiphoto.com. Selections will be notified the 1st of each month. Nominations never expire and may be chosen throughout the life of the project.

Here are some ideas of great candidates for this type of nomination:

-Military family reunions
-Those battling cancer or other illnesses
-People or families who have never had a portrait session
-Single moms or dads
-Anyone who could use feelings of love and support

Thank you for all those people who have sent me incredible nominations and to those of you who would like to nominate someone, please contact me! I would love to hear from you!

I’m so excited to share! Here is a little bit about my first session:

This family was nominated by a friend who told me in a very sweet message how amazing this momma is and what she has overcome. Her friend’s message truly touched my heart and I knew right away I wanted to provide fun and happy memories through my lens. Tanya, thank you for a wonderful evening and the chance to share my passion with you! Your dedication to your children and their happiness is inspiring and I hope you know how fortunate I feel to have met you all!

On Facebook a couple months ago I announced Project Poppi. Project Poppi stemmed from my fear of being too complacent. I don’t want my life to pass me by without meaning and I want to create a body of work that is purely devoted to uplifting others.

How Project Poppi works: Once a month I will photograph a person, couple or family who can benefit from a free photo session from me.

Poppi Photography, www.poppiphoto.com, Family Getaway SessionsI took this image on the way home from our trip to Leavenworth, Washington last December. Aren’t the starts just amazing?! We are just so tiny in comparison. I am in awe of the magic that is our Pacific Northwest. I love this image and wanted to share it with you.  In contrast to all previous blog posts from me, I’m going to write rather than post photos. For those of you who feel like getting to know me more on a personal level please read on!

For a while now I’ve been trying to figure out what I want my focus to be as a photographer. I’ve photographed births, newborns, families, senior photos, weddings, advertising, real estate and the list goes on. I’m so thankful for all the wonderful people who I’ve had the opportunity to work with! Thank you so much for picking me in a world where there are so many photographers! It’s clear to me now more than ever what I want Poppi Photography to be.  Here is my vision: I want to be your family getaway/day trip, lifestyle photographer. I want to explore nature and encourage families to spend time together outside in our beautiful surroundings. I want to provide you with artful memories of your time together, as well as create images of nature you can use as art for your home. I also want to add the option for an album of your day together. Here are some ideas for family getaways!

1. Beach 2. Hiking 3. Boating 4. Camping 5. Fruit picking 6. Canoeing 7. Biking 8. Mountain Exploring 9. Find a new town. 10. Take a ferry ride.

Do you find your self asking a stranger to take a family photo of you while on vacation? Do you find yourself saying, “I wish I had a better camera”? Are you ready for something different? Theses are all great reasons to start planning when to take a getaway with Poppi Photography! The first five people to book this session with me I will give 50% off! I want to create a body of work to show exactly what I envision. If you love the experience and the photos, all I ask is that you share with your friends and family!

It was so magical and I couldn’t put my camera down for a second. If something in you resonates with these images I want to photograph you! This is my dream. I want to document couples and families out enjoying nature together, exploring together and being in love! I think life is so incredibly beautiful and preserving the beauty is what can get us through our toughest moments.

I brought my camera but ended up only taking a few shots one morning and one evening. Most of the time I spent soaking up the sun as much as possible and enjoying taking a break! We rented this cute ranch style bungalow and my favorite part was the meyer lemon tree near the pool! BEST LEMONS EVER! I made lemonade as often as possible and loved sitting in the hanging basket chairs off the front porch. Sunshine is amazing. 76 degrees in January is even more amazing! I’m not sure where life is going to take us, but I’m hoping someday we end up in a place where I can grow a lemon tree of my own! Maybe while I live in Washington I need to get into making apple juice! Haha! Hope these images bring a little light into your day!  If you want to see a few more images from our trip you can check out my Instagram feed HERE.
