Summer has come and gone, and I haven’t not been able to catch up! Our Summer was packed full of fun stuff. I had many photo sessions, too, but didn’t have nearly enough time to get any blogging done. My boys are getting older, and the bigger they get, the busier they get — it leaves little room for much else. But boy, this past Summer was beautiful, wasn’t it?? I’m sad to see it go, but I’m thinking that sharing some of my Summer shoots here will help me relive a little of the warmth.

This was my first time working with this adorable family, but they were a blast! Twin girls, and a little boy made for a busy shoot, but it was so worth it! In love with the beautiful evening light, and their outfits. So adorable!

I decided to try out a new layout for my blog posts. I kinda like the collages. So hopefully things will load a little quicker in your browser so you can preview the images a little faster! Enjoy 🙂

I’ve always said it, but taking Senior Portraits is one of my favorite things! I had the pleasure of meeting Morgan recently, who is going off to PLU next year! I am so excited for her. She’s such a talented young lady, she acts & sings, as well as plays the ukulele — which I think is so stinkin’ cool. Best of luck, Morgan, you have such a bright future!!

The Mom + Me mini’s are just about wrapped up, and I am hoping to share a few of them here as I am archiving these sessions. This particular session was one of my favorites. The sun was shining through the trees, the blossoms were radiant, and Stephanie showed up looking like a Goddess! She found this amazing dress at a thrift store, and her friend made the flower crown. So cool, right?? And her cutie pie twin boys did so great throughout the shoot, it was such a pleasure working with them.

Enjoy the preview!

Recently, I had such a fun opportunity to capture some images for a new, local business. It’s called Coffee Convo Craft, and it’s such a fun and unique way to create a fun wooden sign + visit with friends. You sign up for an event, pick your project, and they get everything prepped and ready for you. You basically show up, paint, and they do the rest! It’s hassle free and fool proof. If you’re in the area, I high recommend! They just celebrated their One Year Anniversary of starting the business, congrats guys!!!
