All the heart eyes! I met Chandra and Madeliene at Wild Hearts Farms, one of my favorite photography venues in Tacoma. It was early evening and the sun was at the most perfect spot. Typically I like to shoot sessions later in the evening, but baby Waverly had an early bedtime. It worked out just […]
I anticipate that I can start photographing families by June 1st. Only you know how much family portraits mean to you. Don’t miss the opportunity to capture your photos this year.
Happy mother’s day to the moms of one and to moms of many, to moms who have lost children, to children who have lost their moms, to those with strained relationships, and to those who want to be a mom. Happy mother’s day to grandmas and aunties and extra and bonus moms, mama bears, fur moms, mamas, mimis, gigis, and nanas. You are strong, you are special, you are loved.
It’s their 1-year anniversary, so I figured it was only fitting to share Ciana and Chris’ rainy day elopement! I’ve known Ciana for many years.

They’re good friends of mine and our kids went to preschool together, so I couldn’t pass it up! “It’s going to be a surprise,” he said. “Annie doesn’t know […]
Oh, little Piper Ann. I seriously cannot believe it’s been a year since your mommy and daddy brought you home from Arizona. For Piper’s 1st birthday session, the Mittleiders and I met at Wild Hearts Farm in the gorgeous white studio. Despite it being January, the studio was warm and cozy – perfect for cake smashing! We […]
Locations can be a part of your portrait story, not just a pretty backdrop. But if you don’t have a preference on a location and you’d rather I decide or if you’re from out of town, I’ve complied a brief list of locations around Tacoma with photos and descriptions to help you decide where you want to tell your story.
With Mother’s Day nearing, I’d love to share an amazing experience I had last year photographing a birth and the beginning of motherhood for a fierce and beautiful woman.
I know so many strong, smart, beautiful women. And these women, when they are pregnant, their power is magnified. Katie proves that.
