Charlotte say's "Go SEAHAWKS!" {Family in the Garden}

Posted by on Sep 15, 2010 in .Families., .Little ones., Lifestyle | One Comment

3 blog posts in 2 days– I’m on a roll!

Meet the sweet Hoglands. I went to High School with Dennis & Gwen and it had been years since I have seen them. They continue to look as good as they did way back when. I was so excited to meet their 2 year old, Charlotte. She’s full of character and loved picking Grandmas’s blueberries in her backyard flourishing garden! Dennis had Charlotte put on her Seahawks jersey on and it was too cute. I had a fantastic time capturing them…. and excited for baby #2 to arrive! Congrats Hoglands for growing your family!

Here are my favorite images from our family portrait session!

Brynn + Russell {Seattle Golf Club}

Posted by on Sep 14, 2010 in . Weddings ., Lifestyle | No Comments

July 31, 2010, Brynn & Russel got married! Their wedding was held at the Seattle Golf Club and everything went as smoothly as possible. It was a day full of fabulous people & cheerful celebrations. The ceremony was extremely thoughtful and memorable. I had an amazing time capturing every moment and I gotta say, it was very difficult choosing which images to blog – everyone, especially Brynn, looked so GOOD! Make sure to scroll all the way down to check out the insanely pretty, vibrant sunset.

A special thanks to Rebecca Ellison for assisting & 2nd shooting for me. You rock!

Brynn & Russell– I wish you a lifetime of continuous happiness & love. Your love for each other is so stinkin’ sweet!

Sweet Sienna | 2 weeks old

Posted by on Sep 9, 2010 in .Families., .Little ones., Lifestyle | No Comments

A few weeks ago, I met baby Sienna for the first time. She’s absolutely adorable. Her parents, Bryce & Brooke, couldn’t be more excited parents. The love they have for her is so endearing. I had a fantastic time being around this family love and capturing very sweet moments.

Here are some of my most favorite images from our session. Congrats to Brooke & Bryce with their sweet Sienna!

Jenn & Ben | Venice Beach Canals {Engaged}

Posted by on Sep 4, 2010 in .Engagements., Lifestyle | No Comments

Meet Jenn & Ben. I first met them in February in San Francisco and we instantly had a great bond. I felt like we’ve been friends for years!

I will be joining them in one month (actually 32 days, who’s counting?) in ITALY (yes, ITALY!) to photograph their dreamy, Florence Hills, castle-venue, wedding (click HERE to see the castle venue, dated 1000 AD). So, I thought it was suiting to capture their engagement session in the Venice Canals of Venice, CA. We had the canals to ourselves and the light & weather was just right! We had such a fun time throughout the shoot.

I couldn’t be more stoked to leave Los Angeles for Italy… and, yes, I will be extending my trip and will be there for a full 2 weeks, spending 1/2 of it in the gorgeous Italian Riviera of Cinque Terre.

Here are my favorite images from Jen & Benn’s engagement session. Ciao!!!!!!!

David + Joann | {Wedding Celebration}

Posted by on Sep 2, 2010 in . Weddings ., Lifestyle | One Comment

Over the last year, I have had the true pleasure to get to know David & Joann. They met at Berkeley University, became study friends and spent many hours at cafes. Soon after, their friendship naturally unfolded into an amazing love for each other. On July 10, 2010, they happily declared their i-do’s at First Christian Church in Torrance, CA followed by a huge & fun celebration at the Norris Center for the Performing Arts in Rolling Hills Estates, CA. I had a fantastic time capturing all the moments!

Congrats, David & Joann. I wish you  all the happiness and love the world has to offer. You two are amazing people and I feel so blessed to have you in my life!

Please click HERE to view their wedding gallery showcased with music.

A special thanks to my 2nd photographer, Valerie Green and assistant, Nikki Ruskit!   (see vendor list below)

Christy & Cory with their Dog {Engaged}

Posted by on Aug 27, 2010 in .Engagements., Lifestyle | One Comment

Spending the afternoon with Christy and Cory on the waterfront of Kirkland, WA was a ton fun. We had lots of time to get the creative juices flowing and loved working with the sun and blue skies to my advantage (which isn’t so common in Western Washington!). Gorgeous day + Gorgeous couple = Gorgeous Pics.

I am very excited to photograph their January 2011 wedding in Bellevue at the First Presbyterian Church followed by their reception at the Ballroom at the Westin!

Here are some of our favorite images from their engagement session!

Playful in the Park & Beach {FAMILY in Edmonds}

Posted by on Aug 25, 2010 in .Families., .Little ones., Lifestyle | No Comments

I got to shoot yet another amazing, loving family.  Adorable sisters, Caitlyn & Emily, were so well-behaved and they both loved the camera. We had a blast playing at the City Park in Edmonds and down at Brackett’s Landing Beach on the Puget Sound. My absolutely fav images are all the interactive ones: girls discovering the beach telescope, looking out at the sunset, & walking in park.

Thanks Mark Family for a GREAT photo session. Hope you enjoy these!

2 Giggly Boys & their Sweet Parents | Everett, WA

Posted by on Aug 24, 2010 in .Families., .Little ones., Lifestyle | No Comments

Greetings from the San Juan Islands! I am up here to relax from my many, many fun photoshoots this past week in Seattle. I have my editing cut out for me and will be bloggin’ about them all!

Here goes…. I met Bo, Ty and their sweet parents Justine & Mark at their home in Everett, WA. We went to the very picturesque Everett Arboretum Park for our family session and was surprisingly & pleasantly overwhelmed with the pretty, colorful plants and flowers. Brothers, Bo & Ty, were SO good the entire time. Bo loved checkin’ out the flowers and playin’ in the fountain water.  They giggled and interacted so well with their loving parents!

Here are my favorite photos from our session:
