Kate and Andrew are about to get married!

I have been friends with this woman since the 2nd grade…you do the math!  That is THIRTY YEARS!  WHAT?!?!  Even cooler than still being friends for 30 years is the fact that she asked me to be her photographer for her beautiful day!  I can’t wait to see how gorgeous she will be as a bride in less than a month!  Join me in congratulating this very special couple!

Tre Senior class of 2017

I am pretty lucky when it comes to getting to work with so many high schoolers getting ready to go on to college, figuring out their next step and capturing such a small part of this extremely exciting time of their lives!  Tre had a great session (though he may have had a few other places he would have preferred to be) he totally rocked his photos and I really enjoyed getting to run around with him and his mom getting to know them both!  We all have a passion for baseball and I so enjoyed getting to chat about that!  Congratulations Tre on your graduation.  May your future be so bright you outshine everyone around you!

Ayers Family

I can’t believe how many years I have now been photographing this family!  THE YEARS HAVE FLOWN BY!  How can we possibly make time stand still for a moment!  Their babies have grown up and went off to the work world and college!  What a whirlwind!  Thank you for another amazing opportunity to work with your family!  I adore you all so much!  2017-03-09_00012017-03-09_00022017-03-09_00032017-03-09_00042017-03-09_00052017-03-09_00062017-03-09_00072017-03-09_0008

Baylie senior 2017

As Thanksgiving approaches tomorrow I am reminded all the things I have to be thankful for.  One of those things is this awesome job that allows me to meet and work with such fabulous individuals.  Baylie is such a beautiful soul.   Kind, funny, and absolutely STUNNING.  She made me laugh, and worked the camera like it was a bowl of ice cream…Let me tell you, she taught me a couple things.  Yup…true story.  Congratulations on your senior year Baylie.  I am confident that no matter what path you choose you will be a tremendous success.  Go with confidence and intelligence and open your mind to all that your future is capable of giving you!  I am grateful for the opportunity to be your senior photographer.  I don’t take your choice lightly!  THANK YOU!

Mencke Family 2016

I’ve had the opportunity to photograph this family since their engagement!  I have watched their family grow and their children grow up.  It has been an incredible blessing to be able to provide these memories year after year to the Menke family! Here in the Pacific Northwest we have had a pretty high amount of record rainfall and needed to reschedule their photos, and fought through the rain for this session, but they were all troopers!  They shivered through the cold and wet Washington weather to get their holiday photos back in time!  I adore you all!  Thank you thank you thank you for continuing to allow me into your lives to provide these moments to you and your family!
