Jianna~Cap & Gown~Duvall

You might be wondering why would you have this type of session. Well at the time when you have your senior session you usually don’t have any of the items you are about to see in this session. Sometimes I do these photos along with a graduation party and other times it’s a 30 minute…

Andrew~Mukilteo Beach~Class of 2021

Let’s talk senior photos. My next three blog posts are all seniors with various session types. This one was a full session captured in the full sun. So to handle the harsh light I use backlighting and flash along with natural light when that is possible. If you graduating next year now is the time…

Arnita~Botanical Gardens~Bellevue

Believe you can and you’re half way there. T. Roosevelt I was uplifted and encouraged the minute I met this amazing woman. And I have met her children who are also such amazing humans. So I know she’s an amazing mother. Somehow the universe is connecting me with people I aspire to become. I learn…

Hughes Family~Farrel McWhirter, Redmond, WA

Could it be that after this year when I go to shoot a session I see families hugging tighter, kissing more, and laughing deeper belly laughs?! I’m going to say from my vantage point this is what I’m experiencing. I see the kids light up and talk more. I see and hear more about your…

Lili~2years~Cottage Lake Park

Joy is to fun what the deep sea is to a puddle. It’s a feeling in side that can hardly contained. Terry Pratchett Let’s talk about the morning light. And how awesome it was that this family brought along a little music to dance too. I must admit that we also had clouds and a…

Meet Raquetta~Carnation, WA

Just when you think you know love, something little comes along to remind you just how big it really is. I’m so happy to see this family return with their adorable little one. She lights up the room and is so super stylish. Isn’t that outfit the cutest! The best part was watching her devour…

Hodges Family~Duvall, WA

Adios 2019~ This year was a busy one for me. It was filled with two weddings, engagements, many pregnant mamas, tons of professional headshots, graduates, musicals, newborns, photos of art work, a rose pinning ceremony, spa branding photos, and of course the many families sessions. I can’t wait to see what 2020 brings for my…

Susan~Maternity~Farrel- Mcwhirter Farm Park

MOM turned upside down is WOW. Working with expecting moms gives me all the feels. There is always a sense of calm and warmth. And to meet moms in my own community is really a gift. I live in a pretty small town. Every store or park you usuallycouvt on running into someone you know….

Austin~LWH~Class of 2020

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.~ Eleanor Roosevelt Starting off the class of 2020 is this handsome guy. I photographed his brother a few years back and now it’s his turn. He definitely brought his swagger and his A- game. And Mom was the best second pair of…

Trey~Class of 2019~Bothell Landing

This month marks the ninth year I’ve owned a photography business. It feels like a sweet spot in this journey. I’ll never learn enough. But I’m at a point where my visions are coming to life and more of my focus can be on creativity and not what button/lighting/position I’m using. The story telling can…

Meet the McBrides ~ Duvall Photographer

Well this may be my new favorite fall quote, “Anyone who thinks fallen leaves are dead has never watched them dancing on a windy day.”~Shira Tamir  And we meet again- October.  Back for the frosty morning walks and fires blazing at home.  Last Saturday we sat outside despite the rain and had a giant fire….

Max~Class of 2019~Redmond High

I found out the funniest of coincidences yesterday.  This guy below rides carpool with a family member of my last session.  Neither knew they both hired me for their photos.  But how cool is that?!  I’m glad I got to know them all well enough to find that out.  The common passion was rowing.  So…
