Sally and Poppy

Our friendship, Sally Shintaffer and Poppy Barach’s, began seventeen years or so ago when mutual friends and interests brought us together. Six years ago we began a conversation that led to Mixed Greens Blog, a project we hoped would be relevant, creatively and intellectually meaningful, and would nurture each of us. We had hopes for an amicable and productive venture, but never quite envisioned the beloved pals potential.

As we negotiate the nuances of creative collaboration, each the benefactor of the other’s talent and encouragement, we’re grateful for unexpected revelations along the way. A sustained and deepening friendship is part of it all as our lives are intertwined in the loveliest ways.

We’ve been photographing food, children and families in and around Seattle and the San Juan Islands, Washington for several years. We’re expanding our business in the directions of portrait and editorial photography. We welcome the chance to work with you. Please check out our Details/Rates page for more information and be in touch via our contact page.
