Westerman. family

Pike’s Place Market and the Seattle waterfront was such a vibrant and lively place to capture the Westerman’s family photos last weekend! This character filled urban market seems to shout the Westermans’ name. I even heard Ashley making nostalgic comments of being back in the heart of a city; and chasing her and Brennan’s two boys, Vincent and Quinn, around the pier was just pure joy!






Brennan, Ashley, Vincent & Quinn -It was such a blast and such a pleasure being able to capture some beautiful moments of your family 🙂 Thank you!



 …After snapping all these amazing photos my husband and I took advantage of the trip and claimed a chowder bread bowl, walking the streets enjoying an evening to ourselves! It’s funny, Pike’s place doesn’t seem to change much, but I never bore of walking through the same vendors’ stands and perusing the same trinkets found through their many layers of shops!


Tori. seniors

I think I got some of my favourite landscape shots with Tori on our Eastern Washington desert shoot! She has such a beautiful and calm demeanor about her which made more dramatic and moody shots with the vast mountains and valleys surrounding us a perfect fit. (Sigh) it was just so fun! Tori is a junior this year but came along as an amazing model for our senior photos (I think I’ll hunt her down again next year! ;))


Jenny & Carter. wedding

This wedding was so special to me for so many reasons! Let’s start with Jenny and what an amazing girl she is- I met her 4 years ago in a women’s bible study and right off the bat I could tell this girl had an amazing heart, is so sincere, compassionate and wants to uplift others.

Watching Jenny and Carter’s wedding unfold was like watching a dream wedding in a movie in all the right ways! The day was incredibly thoughtful and special; the two were so smitten with each other and looked like they were able to simply soak in the day and enjoy each other through each moment (and all you brides know how hard that can be-wedding days are so crazy!)

And oh my goodness the details that went into this wedding were total eye candy- it made this photographer very happy!

{Sneaking their first private kiss as husband and wife! Woohoo!}

{I have to say, the speeches are usually my favourite part! You hear from the bride and groom’s closest loved ones about who they are and their journey to find each other. You  get to know people better in such a special way, I  LOVE IT!}


{Jenny’s father presented her with a gift…}

Congratulations Jenny & Carter! Thank you so much for involving me in such a special day!

Sophie. seniors

This is Sophie!

I had a crazy amount of fun with her and her sister doing these mock senior shoots. I have known the two for 4 years now from church and helping lead their youth group. Bella was my classic bohemian beach babe, and Sophie and I had fun doing a more modern/tomboy shoot with cameo and smoke grenades! SO FUN 🙂

Bella. seniors

This is Bella and I was so excited when her and her sister agreed to do a mock senior shoot with me because I think these girls are pretty cute and they have fantastic taste in clothes (they did not disappoint 😉 )

We took a bit of an adventurous hike to get to Howarth Park, in Everett but it was absolutely worth it once we starting shooting in all the glowy light the sun washed ocean waves were giving us!


{These two beauts became my new favourite photos instantly!}
