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…

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…

Williamson Family~Newborn Photography

The most important work you will ever do will be within the walls of your own home. This quote is even more true with most of us working from home now. I have always loved the perks of working from home and editing in my PJs. Until someone unannounced shows up at the door. And…

Meet the Cooks~Red Rock Farm, Duvall

This little joy just turned One.  It’s the second time I’ve take her pictures and she is a doll.  She’s much more mobile now, but always smiling and happy.  Now she really is a little barre baby climbing like her siblings.  You can see that in one of these images below. She LOVED her cake…

Meet the Maurers~Juanita Bay Park, Kirkland

Have you ever met someone and realized later that you had met previously? Well this happened to me with this beautiful mother.  It had been about 6 years or so when her son was a young toddler.  We met at a mutual friend’s baby shower.  I guess I don’t forget faces.  Especially ones that I’ve…
