Laura Thorpe~Art~Fall City

When you create art and are asked to capture an artist you drift immediately in thought and have tons of butterflies. I can’t think of a higher honor than this. A person that inspires me through their passions who values me this way. I am so grateful for a session like this one. So how…

Jerome ~ Class of 2022 ~ Bothell, WA

Appropriately we took an adventure to take these photos. Just as he closes out the childhood adventure to start a new adult one. We hiked through sand and down stairs in the drizzle and overcast. It was the only few hours with light rain. I’ll tell you why we didn’t reschedule. I’m 100% used to…

Schramers~Blythe Park, Bothell

Have you ever thought you’d love a career of photography but dread the online presence you need to have.? Which also seems to be what you need to do for most small businesses these days. Have you thought a blog is overwhelming? 3 posts a week is crazy and sounds way to time consuming. And…

Sam & Jack~Class of 2022~Tahoma High

“It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up.”—Babe Ruth I love finding these inspirational quotes. What a great reminder for all of us. Never Give Up. This recent session was with two awesome senior twins. Double your fun was right. Well that is exactly what we did. At first, I couldn’t tell them…

Dylan~Class of 2022~Duvall

Fall is a great reminder of just how beautiful change can be. In the midst of the beautiful change I get to put those cozy sweaters and boots on and watching the leaves spread out in the air like confetti. I get out my warm blankets and get the fire going and become that homebody…

Maurers~Marymoor Park, Redmond

If you follow my Insta you’ll see that songs sometimes say things better than I can. When the bones are good, the rest don’t matterYeah, the paint could peel, the glass could shatterLet it break ’cause you and I remain the sameWhen there ain’t a crack in the foundationBaby, I know any storm we’re facingWill…

Cosette~Class of 2021

Part glamour and part country girl at heart. Capturing Cosette was pretty much my dream session. Literally every part of it. We started at Marymoor park to watch her sparkle. And ended at her horse barn to meet Leo. What a gorgeous group I got to be around. And her dress is everything. I just…

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…
