Oh, where to begin with this family….sweet, funny, busy, utterly adorable….and one of my favorite to photograph! Three years ago now, I received a somewhat urgent email from this mom, hoping that I had availability right before a busy holiday weekend. Thankfully, I was able to fit them in and capture precious newborn Emily….which is […]

I can hardly believe that graduation is just around the corner for these 2015 Seniors! So many great seniors to share, and next up is Rachel. Smart, kind, funny, and one talented athlete! When we first moved to our neighborhood back in 2002, Rachel was one of the sweet kids that we’d see out playing […]

Oh, what a fun day with this Gig Harbor High School Senior! From the moment I met Ali, I was struck by her warmth and enthusiasm, and of course, that contagious smile of hers! I knew right away that it was going to be one fun evening! We met in downtown Tacoma, and Ali was […]

As I flipped the calendar over to 2015, and as I was going through various sessions from last year, it hit me that I’d better highlight some of these cute “turning one!” cuties before their next birthdays are on the horizon! Next up today is sweet Liliana….this little one had me from the moment I […]

Oh sweet baby Reece…growing so fast, and I cannot express how happy I am that everything aligned to make this session happen! A little back story, Reece’s mom and I have been friends for many years…and since the very start of my business, she has always been amazingly supportive and has trusted me with capturing […]

This past weekend, I was able to spend time with these wonderful people….and I realized not only how much I miss seeing them, but how much I loved their shoot! We’ve been lucky enough to know the Platt family for many years and love that our kids have been able to grow up sharing some […]

Within moments of meeting Alex, she had me smiling. She just had this infectious smile and giggle that made our morning so much fun! It was a beautiful morning, and we started off down by the waterfront of our town that she calls home…beautiful Gig Harbor! One of my favorite parts of senior sessions….walking, exploring, […]
