West Seattle biznote: ‘Gail Ann has left the building’

A storefront in Fauntleroy has been vacated – but its former longtime occupant has NOT gone out of business. Here’s the announcement we received from photographer Gail Ann:

You may have noticed that after a decade “Gail Ann has left the building.”

Gail Ann opened her photography studio some 11 years ago after noticing a for rent sign in the brown brick building known as the Fauntleroy Shopping Center just up from the Fauntleroy Ferry dock. Locals could always find entertainment value in her window displays featuring local families. Many of you have been photographed by her at the Fauntleroy Fall Festival where she has volunteered her services since its inception or seen her at local auction events capturing candids for posterity.

Says Gail Ann “The studio may be closed but I’m open for business! I’ll be on a short hiatus traveling through Poland. I’ll be back to work in June and look forward to working with all of you again.”

Gail Ann can still be reached at 206-371-0585 or by visiting her blog.


  1. Gail Ann is wonderful and has done so much pro bono work for the community. I’m glad she’s not gone for good. We have much cherished Fall festival pictures taken by her.

  4. At first glance, I thought this was a cheekily written memorial. Glad that she’s just changing locations.
