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.

Camille + Erik | Upper Queen Anne Seattle Engagement

On a quiet morning before Thanksgiving, I met up with Camille & Erik for their engagement photos. They’re currently living on opposite coasts with school, so we had to be super strategic about timing! Luckily we had a classic, beautiful Seattle winter day. Not quite raining, but with low hanging clouds and a feeling of coziness that is reserved for those lights-on-inside, family-is-gathering vibes that, when I bend myself to acceptance, are some of the best parts of the Seattle winters.

We decided on Upper Queen Anne for its overgrowth, its stony walkways and grand streets, and its open air and fort-like elevation above the world. When I first moved to Seattle this is where I lived, and in some ways, it will always feel a little like home. Taking walks with my husband in this very spot, years before I started my business, years before we had a baby, and years before my life would change forever from the amazing people I get to meet in doing this job. I’m always amazed at how unique each love story is and humbled by the couple’s willingness to let me in for a small glimpse of something so precious.

 

Frandelis + David | Seattle Pioneer Square Engagment Session

When Frandelis emailed telling me she and David were going to be visiting from California and wanted engagement photos with a city feel, I knew exactly where to bring them. When we met it was as if they dressed exactly for this spot — I love the way the drama of her black dress works with the concrete and cityscape behind them. Shooting in unconventional locations is so fun for me. I have a whole series called “highway love” in mind — more on that later.

Until then, enjoy these two!
