Hayley + Brandon | A Mt. Rainier Wedding at Nisqually Winds Mountain House

I remember exactly where I was when I met with Hayley and Brandon over the phone to talk about capturing their wedding. In my purple office chair, at my desk, with my baby in his bouncer on the floor next to me — my toe gingerly tapping to keep him sleeping. This was how I spent most days last winter. The coming summer seemed so far away.

We met for their engagement session and I fell in love with them. So grounded, honest, easygoing and kind people. I was not just a vendor to them, which is my most heartfelt wish for every couple I work with. Hayley and I became buds on social media and when I showed up for this day it felt like greeting old friends. At the end of the night, we stood just outside the gathering, looking in at their loved ones, and I felt sad to go.

Life is about people, people.

Enjoy.

 
 

Tara + Scott | A Snowy Seattle Winter Couple's Session

This has been the craziest February! I’ve lived in Seattle for five years and cannot believe how much snow we’ve seen this winter. In Chicago, where I’m from, this would be totally normal, but here it’s just so magical and fun. I love seeing how the landscape transforms when covered with a crisp dusting of beautiful white snow. It clings to the trees and makes them sleepy under its weight, and there’s a hush that comes over the world as we bundle and hibernate until the damn roads are finally clear! I’m secretly in love with the entrapment, though.

Tara & Scott braved the snow and arrived in a big, sturdy truck that could handle it well — and I hopped in and we made our way to this cozy little grove for some fun.

Enjoy.

Marsa, Jerry & Kai | Woodland Seattle Family Session

Sometimes you don't have to drive hours and hours to get to the perfect location.  This lovely wooded spot is actually right in Mill Creek, WA.  It's one of my favorite spots to go for a walk or jog, and made for an awesome photo spot.  Close parking, short walk, whole thing said and done in just over an hour.  :)

I'm booking up fall spots for family photos now!  Please reach out for more information or to grab your time.
