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 […]
What a year, WHAT A YEAR! Can you believe 2020 is almost over (finally!)? This season was so crazy with masking up, wiping down, keeping apart. I can’t believe we successfully completed five days of socially distanced mini-sessions in October and November! That’s over 60 families for minis ALONE. I can’t thank you enough for […]
Today marks Sara and Daniel’s one-year wedding anniversary! We had such a great time at their intimate, beachside wedding last year. I’ve been photographing weddings for over 16 years (and I’ll be celebrating my own 9th wedding anniversary next month!), but it still always amazes me how much goes into planning even the smallest details […]
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 may not be important for the senior, but it definitely is for their parents. They’re not kids anymore! They’re officially adults. *cue tears*
I’ve been photographing families for 15 years and the common feeling or theme is that Dads only do this for their partners.
I love offering Fine Art School Portraits because it gives me opportunities that I never imagined.
With the documentary sessions, I am hands off. I’m there to capture your every day, playing and loving each other. Some families share a meal, enjoy the beach, have a campfire. Documentary is the realness and rawness of life.
Melissa is a busy mom with two busy girls and a busy husband. She knew her family couldn’t hold on for my full hour session at a park somewhere, so she requested a short, in-home session. I. Love! It. She knows her family’s limits and didn’t want to push it.
