Featured Engagement: Sara & Johnnie

I’m reaching into the archives today to share an engagement session that was very special to me. Meet my sweet sister, Sara, and her husband, Johnnie.  If you’ve ever seen a burlesque show in Seattle, Sara might look familiar to you. She’s spent the last 15 years performing as Inga in burlesque shows around the world, and she’s a member of Seattle’s famous burlesque troupe […]

Hilary & Kyle’s engagement session

A few weeks ago, I spent an idyllic Autumn morning exploring Fort Steilacoom Park with Hilary and Kyle at their engagement session. I’ve driven past the park many times, but never turned in before, so the acres of gorgeous waist-high grass, rustic old barns and big lake reflecting brilliant fall colors were a big surprise. I had so much fun with these two and I […]

Spring Family Photo Sale

I usually save my family portrait sale for the holidays, but I am ITCHING to get out in the sun – whenever it finally shows up – and take some pictures. My kids may love the cold weather, but I can’t WAIT for sunshine and baseball and short sleeves and flowering trees and adorable babies on blankets. So, how about a Spring family photo sale? For […]

Featured wedding: Jennie and Glen

Late in July, I had another wonderful opportunity to shoot a wedding with tons of extra time for photography. Jennie and Glen devoted almost their entire day to an extra-long photo shoot. As great as it was, it wasn’t how they had originally envisioned their wedding day. See that gorgeous back yard? The original plan was a small ceremony and reception at their lovely rural […]

Spike heels. Zippers! I want to get married again just so I can wear these shoes. You have no idea how hard it is for a lifelong shoe addict to give […]

Featured wedding: Lindsay & Michael

Most of the time, I have to work very, very fast. Wedding schedules are complicated. You have to squeeze hair and makeup and dressing and photos and vows and dinner and dancing and toasts and cake and so very many hugs and conversations and small moments of panic into your day. You are nervous and stressed and rushed and you barely have time to eat […]
