Haley and Jeff are moving to Hawaii soon, which is why they decided they wanted to get their engagement session done asap.
Which shows you how charming our city possesses :)
Two beautiful people, a rare sunny winter’s day in the Pacific Northwest, a beach - can we go wrong?
Capturing pictures is easy. Capturing personalities, not so much.
Which is why one requires a good afternoon to make pictures that give you a small window into a family’s soul. An afternoon spent playing and singing and dancing and swinging. If you’re lucky, you will catch a glimpse of their world. A world where you need to sit still and watch and listen, or you’ll miss the bits that matter.
If you’ve been following my work, you know I’ve been thinking about giving classes and mentoring. After going back and forth, endless discussions with my husband/motivator/devil’s advocate, and endless discussions with myself, I thought perhaps I should give it a go.

When I arrived, he was waiting for me with his furry friend.
This rolly polly dolly makes me yearn to have another.
This job is dangerous
I don’t see my sis much and this time when she visited, I felt that we’d somehow reached a new milestone. She’s not my little sister anymore, but a friend and someone’s girlfriend and the best aunt in the world my girls could ever ask for.

The new year has commenced
Its momentous journey today.
From today on, during the entire year,
I shall not offer my volcano-ambition
To the world.
I shall offer the world
Only my moonlit heart’s flaming aspiration.
