Denny ~ in home lifestyle session

Now that 2022 is a wrap I can get back to some blogging. This Fall and Winter I had four newborns that I was able to meet and capture. Some were private and some were shared. Some were in my studio and some were in home sessions. They were all very different creatively based on…

After a week of being sick I’m coming alive again. I took a walk outside without music to take in the fresh air, all the sounds, and some of that sun. Why does it always have to be nice weather outside while I’m stuck indoors?! This happens to me every time. I’ve watched all the…

{Insert amazing inspirational quote here} But really….. this is August! I’m playing in the sun trying to squeeze everything in over here. Come September I’ll have all the appropriate blogging, but for now let’s do all the things and live our best lives at the river, lake, or beach. Who’s with me????? And how handsome…

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…

Roman ~ Class of 2022~ Carnation WA

After a wonderful weekend away I’m back in the swing of things with a wonderfully busy week. Three sessions and an in person ordering session are coming up. This wonderful session was adjusted for a time when the weather would cooperate. And I’m so thankful we did that because the light was beautiful that morning….

Why should you do Branding Photos

You and your business are more than a logo; I read this sentence and then read it again. Your images can invoke feelings even before anyone messages you or picks up the phone. You as the business owner are the face of your business. It’s important to have a visual brand that presents you in…

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…

Tiana~Class of 2021~Red Rock Farms, Duvall

Hello 2022 A time to look back and see what was accomplished. Time to set news goals and squash every one of them. Time to be realistic and look at the ways I can expand and grow. So exactly what did I accomplish with this photography journey last year? Well I happen to be getting…

“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…

Fyodor Dostoevsky Get ready to uhhh and ahhh this session. The little guy is an absolutely a handsome fella. He feels the same way about chocolate that I do and he’s dapper in his little romper. He’s bringing all the feelings and emotions to the session and ends with the most joyous happiness you can…
