By age 24, she was honored by LIFE magazine as one of the eight most talented photographers in America. In 1991, her image of a young departing soldier, embracing his daughter on the USS John F. Kennedy, was used globally for ads including AT&T and the USO and was on the cover of LIFE Magazine’s The Year in Pictures issue. Her photo story on runaway teens in downtown Seattle was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. Sports enthusiasts will remember her iconic photograph of Ken Griffey Jr. from the 1995 American League playoffs (“The Smile at the Bottom of the Pile”).
Robin is clearly on a path of purpose! She's about to launch her latest project, a labor of love titled, "the lake," a stunning culmination of a 10-year personal mission, presented on a grand scale with state-of-the-art craft and attention to every detail. It perfectly and artistically captures the energy of the water, the people, and the nature surrounding Lake Washington.

The key to life... #gratitude
Advice to the younger generations... "get quiet; do what makes your heart happy and you'll never work a day in your life"
