VonScherr Family – Tacoma LGBTQ+ Family Photographer
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 […]
Holiday Tree Farm Mini-Sessions – Day 1 – Tacoma Family Photographer
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 […]
Paris – Tacoma Senior Portrait Photographer
I photographed Paris’ sister a few years ago for her senior portraits so when it was Paris’ turn, I was beyond thrilled. Their family is super sweet and I’m so grateful that they came back for both girls’ senior portraits! We started at the Wright Park Conservatory and then popped down to Tacoma’s 6th Ave […]
Motherhood — Tacoma Lifestyle Family Photographer
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.
Tate – Tacoma Senior Photographer
note: 9/11 TW Oh, 2020 Seniors. I’m so sorry your final year in school has been disrupted. You had so much excitement and positivity going into this year. You were planning your graduation and celebration parties. Senior prom was coming up and you just got the courage to ask your date. Maybe you got your […]
Tree Farm Mini-Sessions Day 1 – PNW Family Photographer
This was my third year doing tree farm mini-sessions and for the third year in a row, we had beautiful weather. It was cold, but the sun was shining and everyone was great spirits! (The hot cocoa and cider helped warm them up a bit.) This year we were at the Glenwood Tree Farm in Tacoma, […]
Brady Wendlandt – Tacoma Senior Portrait Photographer
Most seniors get their senior photos taken for their moms, which I totally appreciate. Senior sessions document who they are right now as they head into their last year of school. 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*
A Session Guide for Dads – PNW Family Photographer
I’ve been photographing families for 15 years and the common feeling or theme is that Dads only do this for their partners.
Picking a location – PNW Photographer
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.
Cox Family – Tacoma Family Photographer
With each session, I realize more and more why I love what I do. I mean, I already knew that photography is a way for me to be creative and to capture life’s fleeting moments. That’s cliché, of course. Important, but nearly every photographer’s slogan. But now that I’ve stepped back from the ultra-posed, Photoshopped, […]
