How I Help Clients Pick Their Photos

So many of my clients tell me that their all-time favorite part of the whole experience with me is the Premier. The Premier takes place around 2 weeks after the session. It starts off with a slideshow of all the images set to music. I project the slideshow onto the wall so it feels like […]

Family Photos at Parson’s Gardens

I read a quote by a photographer once that said something along  the lines of “I don’t want to photograph strangers.” This is so true for me. I like to meet new people but I like it even more when the new people aren’t new anymore. The magic for me is when I get to […]

Mama and Me Photo Sessions

If I had to pick one subject to photograph for the rest of my life it would hands down be mothers and their children. There is just nothing in this world that moves my soul more then motherhood. My own mom is my best friend. I talk to her on the phone multiple times a […]

Spring in Seattle

I have three favorite times of year….fall, winter, and spring. Right now I am firmly stuck in the belief that spring is the most glorious of them all…especially here in Seattle.

The Metje Family

One of the most wonderful things about photographs are their ability to tell the most spellbinding stories. As I edited each image for this sweet family I was reminded of all the wonderful little moments that had occurred at their session. Alina is from Germany, JP from South Africa and their little boy Jacob is […]

The Owens Family

All this sweet mama wanted for her session was a little bit of sunshine. When we all got to Discovery park the sky was a decided gray. An unwavering blanket of clouds. The forecast had promised sun…I had checked it everyday all week. We soldiered on, not entirely surprised that Seattle’s weather was unpredictable in […]

The McShane Girls

This is my time of year, I  can feel the shift in the air. The fall is lingering with the summer in a beautiful dance, vying with each other to control the weather. This session was one of my last summer ones. We hid in the shade from the strong sun and played in front of […]

Mila and Summer

When I was seventeen years old I got on a yellow school bus for the first time in my life and headed off to Nathan Hale, the third and final high school I attended in my teen years. I was nervous for a lot of things…would the other kids like me. Where would I eat […]
