Donna Ryan Photography opens today, May 1st, in the bright, expansive space at 4218 SW Alaska Ave. in West Seattle’s Alaska Junction (formerly home to Swee Swee Paperie).
Already well known for her portraits of children, families and high school seniors, and as the official photographer for the West Seattle Junction Association, Donna envisions her new location as both a lively studio and “a nice place for moms to pop in and have a bit of respite.” This space houses both a sun-washed studio equipped with comfortable couches and cushions and a retail store featuring the Tea Collection: affordable, quality children’s clothing with fresh, simple style.
In-studio, Donna will host Portrait Parties, a combination of a fun get-together and photo shoot. Each Portrait Party includes a group photo followed by individual mini photo shoots (about ten minutes per person) along with light refreshments. Party hosts, who may include PEPS (Program For Early Parent Support) and moms groups, high school seniors, and small businesses, will receive a 5×7 group shot and the option to order individual photos.
HOURS: Retail hours, beginning May 1st: Wednesday-Sunday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Photography shoots by appointment—call now to book May and June sessions.
