#BizintheGig: Picture Perfect, Paige Wells, Captures Gig Harbor in “The Next Three” + HGTV in the Gig!

Well just when you thought Gig Harbor couldn’t get more beautiful…local Photographer, Paige Wells, drops her new coffee table book just in time for the Holidays, filled with “insider” images around our gorgeous small town. Watch the (impromptu) interview with her below as we chat about her journey to becoming a lifestyle photographer and her first published pohot book with a subject we all love, Gig Harbor!

Its no secret that I am a huge cheerleader for small businesses — especially in Gig Harbor. Every Thursday I’m bringing these two loves together, real estate and entrepreneurs. Follow along as I #tourthegig, visit gorgeous, just-listed homes, and then spotlight a #bizinthegig from among our community’s many small businesses. Bonus​: each Thursday when I highlight a small business, I’ll also do a giveaway for everyone who comments right here on the blog- this week I will be giving away one of these cute coffee table books to a commenter below!

Along with being a mom to two adorable girls, a new author, Paige, is a lifestyle photographer in the area- check out her portfolio here: Hushed Reverly. She shoots families at some of our favorite Gig Harbor photo spots, downtown, at the net shed, on the piers… but her real value wedge to the photography community is finding the niche places that most wouldn’t think of for your classic outdoor family shoot. She also has a knack for making families feel relaxed and natural in their own home so she can capture you in your most familiar environment. Those candid moments when siblings whisper into each other’s ear and then crack up- those are the magical moments she captures. Check out her website for upcoming holiday sessions your booking for 2018 family photos.

Paige Wells and I recently got together for coffee so I could pick up a handful of copies of her new project The Next Three, her coffee table photo book. She had just launched it on Instagram and I had to have it, for myself and clients. As a lover of Instagram and Gig Harbor this book marries the two along with taking us on an adventure to figure out the hidden secret places she’s photographed. She captures common places we may see everyday but from a different perspective, providing you with an artistic look at our humble small town.

Check out the full interview here. We were literally just there for coffee and a chat and ended up filming our video… again at Gig Harbor MarKee!

I am so excited to have met Paige, she is smart, well traveled and gets sh*t done.  Her vision to create beautiful content is a unique skill and her drive to bring beautiful projects to life is inspiring. This little book is just the beginning the photo journey she is going to take us on. You can find her book at some pretty awesome local businesses here in the harbor, The Nook (yay!) and at Mood– get into their store and check out their local art and furniture (swoon!). Her book is also available directly from her website * Hushed Revelry* where you can also book your family photos or purchase gift cards for future photos,  perfect for giving the gift of memories this holiday season. Gift cards for a photo shoos is a genius option for parents/grandparents who are impossible to buy for!
Paige is also working on the launch of a co-working space for events and creatives in an awesome spot in downtown Gig Harbor. If you host events, plan painting parties, need studio space for your creative projects- get in touch with Paige, she can hook you up with some fair priced square footage. So SMART!

 If you are social, like me, follow her on Instagram or on Facebook – visit her and show her some love, comment #bizinthegig so she knows you were here!

Remember to keep on supporting local, these small business owners they are who keep our small town special.
