Hunter Family // Morton, WA

If these photos don't bring on all the motherhood, crazy family time feels I don't know what will! Nick + Jess have three of the most photogenic kids in the world, seriously wait until you see these pictures of them. I felt refreshed after this session, shooting the Hunter family made me want to take on a lot more lifestyle/family sessions. We will see what comes of that, but until then - ENJOY!

Abby + Andrew // Gilbert Temple, Arizona

Arizona is hot.... I think I mentioned that a time or two while I was down there this summer shooting Abby + Andrew's wedding. But regardless of the heat, I had a great time! This wedding weekend was so much fun, I got to stay with Abby's family and really got to know everyone on a personal level. We had a great time eating Mexican food, getting our nails done, and running around Arizona.

Post Ceremony Moments

Want to know my favorite thing to do after your ceremony (especially if you didn't have a first look) ? I like to steal the bride + groom for 15 mins while guest are eating or getting dismissed to eat, or any time that seems appropriate.

Head to a quiet spot not far from where the reception is and allow my couple a few minutes alone to take it all in. A safe space where they can talk, hug + kiss and go over their thoughts and feelings from the days events so far.

Lauren + Matthew // Ridgefield WA

The end of summer has me reminiscing on Lauren + Matt's backyard wedding in Ridgefield Washington. This day was filled with lots of family and friends surrounding the bride and groom. Everyone was hands-on for the success of this day, from helping with the decor, making food and serving one and other.  It was a beautiful day with perfect weather and memorable moments.

This was the first time I met Lauren + Matthew, it so so clear early on that their friendship ran as deep as their wedding vows.

Amanda + Cody // Alaska

This was the first time I have her been to Alaska and it won’t be the last. This was such a fun weekend that it hardly felt like work for me, I was picked up by the bride's father at the airport and we drove about 40 minutes through the Alaska wilderness to their home. Pioneer Ridge bed and breakfast is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever visited, with a rich history as Alaska’s once largest dairy farm as well as the breathtaking views it makes for the perfect getaway to experience Alaska.

Abby // Vancouver, WA

This queen is a senior! I have known Abby for over 5 years now. She has become like a sister to me and is a good friend. Abby has spent somewhere close to 100 hours over the past two years watching my boys and I couldn't be more grateful for the love and care she gives them. Abby has grown up so fast and I was honored that she wanting me to capture her senior year.

Epp Family Pictures // Hockinson WA

Our family friends had asked me to photograph their younger kids (Oldest is off at college - don't worry Ethan, we didn't forget about you) so I headed up the mountain to their house.  We had a great time chasing dogs, dodging sprinkles and talking homeschool, but for real our time together was awesome. End of Summer / early Fall is my favorite for family pictures.
