Engagement Session Rattlesnake Lake, Washington

Sometimes the universe brings me couples like this and I pretty much jump for joy. They are fun, sweet, adventurous, and in love!

I feel like I could photograph couples all the day long, and at Rattlesnake Lake no less. I clearly am obsessed with that place. This North Bend Engagement session has me over the moon with joy.

And these two let me get my weird on, thank you for that! Congrats on your engagement you two. And may you have many kitties in your future!

Family Photo Session when your all grown up- HECK YEAH

I love this idea.

Erin’s parents are divorced and they both live in Minnesota. They were both set for a Pacific Northwest visit at two different times around Christmas, so Erin booked two family shoots at some awesome PNW locations. I love this idea, again and again.

Why not have some special photographs taken with your parents when your all grown up? The first shoot we did in the freezing pouring rain up at Rattlesnake Lake in North Bend, Washington. We toughed it out and it was well worth it.

Now Erin’s mom is not a fan of the cold, so we went to the Volunteer Park Conservatory. This place is GORGEOUS and so is Erin’s love for her parents.

This Seattle family photographer is up for any Pacific Northwest Adventure with you!

Lifestyle Portraits of Energy Healing with Yoli from from Panama

A lifestyle session with a Reiki Master from Panama…. the perfect portrait session for me!

She also does holistic counseling and Shamanic healing.

Yoli likes traveling, books, healing, animals, magic. She asked for her images to be soft and dreamy. We were made to work together.

We photographed our way around West Seattle, and made plans during the shoot to get me to Panama. She brought her mother to the shoot, who also practices healing among other things. It was a dream photo shoot.

Here is a link to Yoli’s instagram.

Senior Photos-Lincoln Park, West Seattle

People inquire if I do senior photos quite often. Although they are not showcased on my website - I certainly do! Why do I not put them on my site? Only because I need to simplify the things I showcase (so as not to confuse people)

Meet Spencer. He is an illusionist and hopes to one day make a career out of it. His mother is an amazing supporter and I connected with her right away. He amazed me with his glowing personality and his passion for magic. He even performed a few mind- blowing tricks after the shoot.

Thank you for coming over from Idaho for a visit and a walk through Lincoln Park with me Spencer- It was a blast.

A beautiful Seattle Wedding, Gasworks Park.

I love nothing more than photographing an adventurous pacific northwest couple.

These two are absolutely lovely. We had such a blast at Gasworks Park here in Seattle making these memories. They were very nervous they would not know how to pose. I told them, relax and let me do the work. Have fun and snuggle, just be you. Take a walk and enjoy the moment.

This part of the wedding is my favorite, capturing the couple in all of their love glory.

Pacific Northwest Wedding Perfection, Salish Lodge, Snoqualmie, WA

What a wonderful Pacific Northwest Wedding at the Salish Lodge overlooking the majestic Snoqualmie Falls.

Chyna and Jason met and fell in love as teenagers. They went separate ways and led separate lives, but the universe returned them full circle back to love.

West Seattle Family Photo Shoot

This is a perfect example of what can happen if you have me over to your place for a in-home family photo session here in Seattle.

What can I say, this family is amazing.

We thought we would take advantage of the green space next door for the beginning of our shoot before we began to loose light. An owl was hooting the entire time, LOVE.

We took a walk through the forest, and we ended in the back yard. Mom had wine, and we lit off some smoke bombs. We hung out by the Cadillac and the motorcycle for some fun shots.

I was all sessions to mimic this one, super easy, laid back, in and out of the home- family photo session. My kind of photo shoot. Thanks guys!

Creative Lifestyle Session at Schmitz Park with The Falconer

This shoot was a dream come true for me. For once, I honestly felt as though the beauty of the experience outweighed the photographs. Holding that beautiful owl -and looking into her eyes was an experience I would never trade for anything.

Although this was styled and dreamed up by me, I have to give THE FALCONER a ton credit. He loves these birds. He also has a vulture that I would love to meet. Next time perhaps.
