Two hours into it, I was this close to turning to her and shouting GIRL IF YOU DON'T SHUT UP I'M GOING TO BREAK YOUR SEATTLE SHELL INTO A MILLION FUCKING PIECES.*
Speaking of, I know one person who is breaking her Seattle Shell, and I'm not happy about it. It's my sister, Anna. Her husband Brooks is starting a post-doc at Cornell, and Anna plans on spending a lot of time in NYC working on music. They are leaving in September. I've never lived in Seattle without them. This is all good for them but it royally sucks for me.
Anna's latest album is due to be released in October in Europe, and in early 2012 in the States. I did a shoot for the album the other afternoon, on one of the two sunny days we've had this month. I love how these pictures turned out:

*Fine Print: I stole this phrase from my sister. It was her reaction when I told her the story of the annoying phone girl. She says I can use this quote as long as I give her credit, bring her things from the kitchen when she's in the living room, and give her a free photo shoot.
