BTS of today’s SPRING/SUMMER 2019 Photoshoot for SUM by SUM STYLE🌼 ++++ To be quite vulnerable and frank, there were numerous times in my 2.5 years of starting Sum Style where I felt so defeated that I just wanted to give up and quit. I’ve had employees that quit that made me feel like they were quitting on me, I’ve been scammed by contractors, and I’ve heard a lot of criticism from friends and acquaintances that evidentially both bothered and hurt me. HOWEVER, the employees that quit taught me to be a better listener and leader, the contractors that scammed me made me learn the importance of signed contracts and small claims court (LOL). Finally, the negative noise from people made me learn to decipher between helpful constructive criticism vs haters who are just going to hate 🤷🏻‍♀️ Sum Style has been my natural healer through sicknesses, my comforting best friend through breakups, my family when I felt home sick, and literally the most informative accounting, business, and tax class I could ever take!🤓 SUM by Sum Style is steadily and strongly growing into a company that brings joy, confidence, and positive energy to my clients/customers, my team, and myself. So thrilled to witness and ride out this journey! Like I always say, this is just the beginning! We are just getting warmed up!🤗🍀🚀

Capitol Hill and the nearby lends itself to great imagery. Social media is filled with images of the places and streets around us. We share some of the best here. To be included and help us find your stuff, use the #capitolhillseattle tag on Instagram or ping @capitolhillseattle or @jseattle via Twitter.

We still also have lots of love for the CHS Flickr Pool and its more than 36,000 photographs — most of Capitol Hill images, many glorious, some technically amazing. The pool is a mix of contributions from Capitol Hill shutterbugs. With changes at Flickr, its days of an amazing, free for most repository of great photography have shifted but we’re still watching.

Interested in being part of it? If we like your photo and it helps us tell the story, we may feature it on CHS so please include your name and/or a link to your website so we can properly credit you. Interested in working as a paid CHS contributor for scheduled assignments? Drop us a line. Thanks for sharing!
