Cousins~Heritage Park, Kirkland, WA

          What a bunch of cuties right!!  I had a cousin shoot recently which is a wonderful idea for the family gift.  What else can you get your parents that they would treasure forever and can’t get themselves.  Their grandchildren’s beaming faces is one such gift.  I’ve done this personally and…

Meet Mae Mae~children’s portraits

FUN.Spunk.LAUGHTER.thrill.SERENITY.adventure.LOVE.  This describes how our session went This little one was the most entertaining 3-year-old I think I’ve photographed.  I can tell she is on her way to becoming a musician.  She sings, plays piano and guitar, and knows how to play air guitar.  That was pretty impressive.   I just loved following her around in…

Meet Denaje~Bellevue Botanical Gardens

This was the very special session with the very special person.  She’s pretty much a little sister to me that I have watched grow into a beautiful young lady.  I was there the day she was born.  So it meant a lot to me to be able to give her a great senior photo session. …

Meet Tuzla at 3 months~in studio

I hope everyone is having a fabulous labor day weekend!  I’ve been trying to cram everything in.  Every year we usually hit up the Evergreen State Fair.  There we eat fair food until we’re sick and then go on some rides so we can feel even worse.  Why do we do this to ourselves?!  Well…

Meet Tuzla~private home location

I love unique names.  So when I heard this sweet ones name I just had to look it up.  Tuzla is the name of a city Bosnia. The city where mom and dad met and fell in love.  It’s a turkish name for salt mine, and refers to the extensive salt deposits found underneath the city.  I think…

Josiah+Cami~private backyard location

Where to begin on a love story…. It began for me the day I married my best friend.  And for my dear friend, Cami, I think this is the start to her story.  The day life’s journey really begins.  The day you declare your love in front of the world and never look back.  I’m still choked…

Meet the Cagney~Shorrocks~in studio

What a better time to have family pictures done then when they fly across the Atlantic to come for a visit. I had the pleasure of meeting two people who did fly over from Ireland.  I have to admit I’ve wanted to visit Ireland ever since I saw Far and Away when I was a teenager.  I…

Meet Landen~in studio

Another beautiful newborn came to the studio.  He loved it so much that he wanted to be awake most of the time we spent together that day.  Which gave us lots of opportunities to play with him, love him, and oooooh and ahhhhh over him the whole time.  I loved his expressions and the way he always seemed…

Meet Charlotte

This post is going to be 100% girlie because there were three little princesses at this shoot.  Primarily the angel below.  So its ok to have a million xoxoxos and sparkles and hearts as I want.  If fact, I may just bedazzle the whole post.  If you remember my post Meet bun in the oven #3, this…

Fashion Shoot~private home in Duvall

A recent photo shoot allowed me to dabble in a new genre~ the world of fashion and portfolio building.  I loved exploring this side of photography.  It was challenging and exciting to have a little crew of workers all collaborating ideas.  I learned so much at this shoot.  I love expanding my horizons. This selection of…

Meet Endo and Jet

Sometimes the best location for a photo shoot can be your own home.  As it’s been for my last three sessions.  We can always find great places that have that special prop and background that no one else will have.  Then when you look back you love everything about your photos.  Oh that’s my house…
