2019: A Year in Review

I've compiled the photos I posted over the last year that brought me the most joy and that I feel summarize what looks caught my eye in in 2019. It was such a fun year for style. Rainbow colors, clever layers, see-through fabric, non-gender conforming looks, and body positivity made for one of my favorite years yet of photographing street style. 

It was also by far the most difficult year to date for finding style shots. I had to hunt for longer to find a great photo and often came home after a full day out in the city having taking no style photographs.  I haven't quite wrapped my head around why it has become more difficult for me to find people in Seattle to photograph in the last few years. Maybe it's an evolving city where creatives can no longer afford to live in the areas that they once did... OR maybe it's just me having done this for too long and what stands out as unique personal style for me is what has evolved. Either way, I still really enjoy this documentation so I continue to do it.

Moving to Phoenix in October also brought its own set of challenges since this isn't a walking city like Seattle. I'm finding new ways to document street style here because rather than crossing paths with people walking around on the street I need to find the events or parts of town where people with unique personal style spend time. It's a fun challenge. Send me your ideas if you have any :) :) 

Happy New Year! I'm so excited for what's ahead in 2020.
