There’s nothing like avoiding a list of to dos that I’m not especially excited to do so what’s a girl to do, really? Google herself! We all spend more time than we might like to admit Googling other people and businesses. As a small business owner, it’s probably a good idea to Google yourself, or in my case “Nataworry Photography portraits” to be specific, to see what images turned up. Well, I did just that and was thrown down memory lane as a result. So many great photoshoots with families and business portrait clients, and wonderfully memorable experiences meeting and photographing crazy talented musicians performing at the ever awesome 90.3 CHALLENGE THROW DOWN ALERT! Google yourself! What do you have to lose?

Shindig Events knocked it out of the park, if you ask me. As did all of the delicious vendors at Veg Out Seattle that filled my belly and then some. I highly recommend checking out the vendors listed below as they were so dang yummy that I’m going to seek out their products next time I grocery shop. And kudos to the Metropolist as it looked great and felt like the perfect space for this grand food event. Can’t wait for next year’s Veg Out!

WHAT an outstanding time this project has been for yours truly. When the inimitable Kelli Bielema of Shindig Events asked me to work with her crew to produce fun, creative photos of people artistically wearing vegetables I jumped at the chance. The Veg Out Seattle website promoting the whole shebang beautifully showcases some of the deliciously fun photos. Stay tuned for another blog post showing off tonight’s sure to be super fun event at Metropolist in SoDo which I’m gladly attending and photographing.
