Two things I love: when a fellow artist asks me to shoot their portrait session, and boudoir maternity photo shoots.

vineyard wedding

We know I love a Chelan wedding. It somehow feels like a vacation even though I’m working while there. And being at Larc Hill wedding venue brings together so many great aspects. Rustic barn, the vines you want for a winery wedding, and sparkling blue waters in the distance. Another perk to getting married in […]

seattle family photographer

I love seeing clients come back year after year as their family grows. Family sessions can bring up a lot of complicated emotions, but they are also so fun. Part of the success to them is letting your family be themselves. If your kids are grumpy, we’ll just work with that. I’m a mom, I […]

We all know that feeling of prepping for something big, feeling the anticipation in your stomach, a cross between nerves and excitement. This guide is meant to help you feel calm the closer you get so that you can focus on the enjoyment. I’m going to go over what it could look like to prep […]

new years eve outfit

FInding the perfect New Year’s Eve Outfit shouldn’t be difficult, and that’s why I shop small at my favorite local store, Moxie Boutique.

manor house wedding

This was the first time I got to shoot a Manor House wedding and it has become one of my favorite venues. Located on Bainbridge Island at Pleasant Beach Village, you get views of the sound through the trees, and amazing architecture. Manor House is a 1920’s Tudor style house that offers amazing sunsets when […]

Intimate couples session / day after wedding photos – Maui, Hawaii

  Being on Alki Beach for a wedding just gave me a cool feeling–I don’t know if I can really describe it, but it just felt good. It’s the cutest little beachy town within Seattle with the most amazing view of the city skyline. I’m not from the city and to be honest, Seattle stresses […]

This wedding is a favorite of mine first off, because I LOVE this venue ( aMaurice Cellars in Walla Walla, WA) but also this couple and MY GOD, this sunset. All the good feels, all the good vibes. Oh, and the food was freaking bomb. Alexa + Westy are super fun, really sweet, and affectionate […]

I LOVE engagement sessions. This one was extra special because Carson is a good friend and 1/4 of Bixby+Pine, my favorite wedding planners! We did their session in Snoqualmie, WA with Mt. Si as our backdrop. We got a little bit of moody Washington state weather with some rain but had so much fun taking […]
