This bunny has seen a lot: tears, laughter, love, childhood. What a perfect witness to the first few years of life. Each bit of the beloved toy that is a little worn tells the sweet story. Someday, far too soon, this bunny will be laid aside, perhaps packed away in a box and briefly forgotten, […]

Bunny

“Mother.” I try the word on, testing it’s appropriateness as a description of me and imagining the little life in my arms whispering the string of letters. It’s like waking up in the dark unsure if what floods your mind is leftover from a dream or is reality. Maybe what I’m missing is time. Time […]

Mother

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 […]

How I Help Clients Pick Their Photos

I read a quote by a photographer once that said something along ┬áthe 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 […]

Family Photos at Parson’s Gardens

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 […]

Mama and Me Photo Sessions

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. How magical that the sun and the rain can share the same sky practically at the same time. How beautiful are all the trees […]

Spring in Seattle

I went to The Brooks Institute of Photography with every intention of coming out on the other side of three years as a fashion photographer. I was 18 and decidedly unfashionable. I think it was the seemingly artisticness of fashion images that had captured my fancy. It seemed like it would be great fun to […]

I am often struck by how the concept of time seems to elude me. It either passes by way too fast and leaves me in a whirlwind or inches along so slowly I can never believe that it is actually ticking by at all. I photographed this family a few years ago when I first […]

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 […]

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 […]
