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!
I am going to be bloggin’ a ton in the next week, so will be keeping my entries short and sweet!
Meet the lovely Remington Family. I joined them at the Edmonds City Park for a fun, lifestyle family portrait session. We had a great day and once again, I had a ton of fun. Gosh, I love my job!!!!!!
Here are my most favorite shots from our session!
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!

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!
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!!!!!!!
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!

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.
Here are some of our favorite images from their engagement session!
Happy Summer from adorable brothers, Haaland & Max! I joined them in their backyard for a fun portrait session in Edmonds, WA. I was running around for a few hours with them and got to enjoy a day with their mom, Lily… my good friend!
Here are my favorite shots from our session! Thanks so much to the Christiansen Family for having me shoot your boys every year.
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!
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:
