What an honor to photograph this multi-day educational training, held at the gorgeous Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center in Seattle WA. The Indigenous Breastfeeding Counselor Training "provides foundational lactation education to Native people so that they can provide clinical breastfeeding support in their communities." More photos may be found on my Events page - this training was filled with community, deep learning, babes-in-arms and a profound sense of dedication from both the students and instructors, Camie and Kim. As a photographer, this event was both powerful and fun to photograph; as a doula and a mother I found the wisdom and information shared throughout my time photographing to be deeply touching. To learn more about this training and to support them, please visit their Facebook page!
It was also an extreme joy to recently photograph the Union Hapkido International Seminar held at Enso Center in Redmond WA. This unique event was a phenomenal showcase of immense talent and hard work from Hapkido Master Martial Artists (high level black belts) from around the world, as well as students from the Center. Congratulations to all of those who promoted to the next belt level (dan) during this event...you are truly an inspiration! The Center is a beautiful location to photograph, and the sense of encouragement within the community they have created is also palpable. Thank you for inviting me to capture this event!
