They are the sweetest! This engagement session happened on one of those glorious January days in Washington – crisp, clear, and bright. He takes good care of her, and isn’t she just adorable? I’m looking forward to more with these two when they say “I do” this summer.

A beautiful summer wedding – simply, shabby chic, and lots of love. The barn backdrop was perfect for this cowboy and his bride. With boots on and hay stacks in place, these two said ‘I do’ on a beautiful August day in Gig Harbor. Congrats, and yee-haw!

They really are one of the sweetest families in town! So glad to have met them through school and sporting activities this year. Great family and fabulous dog. I love for my clients to bring the family pup along for their session! These sweet kids will never be this age again – so glad we captured this moment in time.

I was thrilled when her mommy emailed me with a photo inspiration she saw on Pinterest: little girl dressing up in her mama’s wedding gown. So sweet! We quickly scheduled a session and just had a blast posing this little beauty in Mom’s pretty bridal dress. This was also special because it was a celebration of Mom & Dad’s wedding anniversary. These were fun, joyful, and precious photos to capture. For many reasons, this family continues to bless me!

We met at one of my favorite Tacoma locations for this session. Give me green grass, brick buildings, some class architectural beauty, and a darling family, and I’m a happy picture-taking-lady. Scheduling a family session over the beautiful Washington summer months provides some of the prettiness you see here. It’s a great time to update your family photos!

Such a joyfully family, full of big love! Right away, I could tell that this gorgeous little boy was the apple of his parents’ eyes. They were fun, casual, B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L, and so very cool to work with. So glad we got to spend this time together, capturing meaningful forever memories . . . because this little guy will never be this age again . . .

Love to Laugh

Our “Girlfriends Weekend” away was delightful in every way. These special ladies have been by my side . . . forever. Two of them since early childhood, two of them since later school years, and one of them since birth! They are a part of me, and time with them fills me up. We enjoyed having our kids along for this weekend getaway, and our lovely Seabrook home-away-from-home was a cozy fit for all of us. To sum up our time away, one word: Laughter.

Just the Two of Us

She was uncertain when she booked this session. We usually photograph the whole family . . . focusing on the their three young children, and lucky if we get a group shot with Mom and Dad in it. This time, however, Mom had other ideas. She wanted to celebrate the love she shares with her husband. She wanted portraits of the two of them. Just the two of them. I’m so glad she booked the session! Don’t we all need love photos just like these?

I love this little boy for lots of special reasons, and am delighted to watch him grow up in this loving, fun, happy home. He is adored by Daddy & Mama, and is one of the most well-behaved youngsters you’d ever care to know. These family photographs were as joyful as they look – all fun. And, that backyard! Beautiful.
