The older I get, the more I truly believe that we meet people in life that we are meant to meet……whether business or personal or by chance.  This family was no different. I’d met Sarah and Danny and their sweet boy a few years back (you can click here HERE for a reminder)! And of course I […]

Holy smokes – it’s the last night of 2015.  I can’t believe we are here already.

I’ve been sitting on these for a while.  It’s time.  This family is expecting baby #2.  This shoot was CLASSIC.  Sweet K will never remember all our antics – and we (me, Brie, and Mark) will never forget.  Congratulations to one of the kindest, most awesome families ever! I am so so happy for you!  […]

You may remember a few months back when I photographed this gorgeous couple (CLICK HERE) waiting ever so patiently for their sweet baby girl to arrive. Well, she’s here. And she is to die for! Mark and Brie have settled […]

If there were such a thing as blog emoji….you guys would think I was crazy and I would TOTALLY overuse it (for sure)!!! I have had the privilege of shooting some seriously fantastic families this fall. Families full of love, fun, silliness, wit, care, and just major adoration for each other. I’m serious when I […]

These are the Honig and Pyatt families. They are awesome.  And they picked a most GORGEOUS day for family photos.  These two.  Their love.  Sweetest ever!  After 14 years of marriage I think he adores her…. a lot!  Now these are their grandbabies.  2.5 years old.  And FULL of energy!  And then they do this….. […]

This was the perfect Saturday morning to play! And I LOVE Pike Place Market. Add these four – and you have perfection. Blakely, the gorgeous mom, is a college/life friend. I was so excited when she called to tell me they were coming up to visit and that she wanted to do family photos! Sign […]
