Russell + Cassandra | Semiahmoo Sunrise Engagement Photos

I know it’s backwards to post an engagement session after the wedding, but oh well! There’s no way I could NOT share this session. Sunrise photos on the Semiahmoo beachfront – how amazing is that?? These two got up at 4am to meet me the day before their wedding, and it was totally worth it!…

North + Caroline | Bellingham Wedding Photography

There were so many gorgeous moments throughout North & Caroline’s wedding day that it took me forever to put this blog together just for the difficulty of choosing what to put in! Spring Time Farm served as the rustic garden backdrop, and a plethora of handmade creamy wildflower bouquets dotted every surface. Nearly every detail…

Russell + Cassandra | Bellingham Adventure Wedding

I’ve had the privilege of photographing all kinds of weddings for 17 years now, and in all of that time I’ve never been a part of an experience like what Russ & Cass put together. They flew in from Colorado for a PNW adventure wedding on top of a waterfall, and because Russell has always…

Josh + Emily | Lynden Home Wedding

Joyful, humble, purposeful, dedicated, adventurous, easygoing; the first of many words that come to mind when I think about Josh and Emily.

Gabe + Rachel | Hotel Sorrento Seattle Urban Wedding

Between the gorgeous historic Hotel Sorrento in downtown Seattle and the incredible architectural design of the Chapel of St. Ignatius on Seattle University’s campus, this urban wedding was practically iconic from start to finish. I couldn’t get over every beautiful, texturized, light-drenched detail. And you couldn’t find a better couple to be hosting their close…

The Karuzas are literally one of the most beautiful families I’ve ever met. And Ashley should be a home designer, with how gorgeous she’s decorated every room of their house. This lifestyle newborn session was an absolute dream!

The Hansgens | Tennant Lake Family Mini

This beautiful family is growing up so fast, and I swear James & Emma get cuter every time I see them. Emma’s giggly little face with that amazing curly head just gets me every time!

The Richardsons | Hovander Park Family Mini

I love my family mini sessions at Hovander Park – there is so much to explore, and with kids this age a half an hour is often the most that they’re up for. I have been so lucky to photograph this super sweet family from the beginning – all the way back to Cody &…

Baby Owen | Bellingham Lifestyle Newborn Photography

Having celebrated their engagement, wedding and first baby with them, I was absolutely thrilled to be invited to capture Aaron & Brenna’s first few days with the newest addition to the sweet Fox family. He’s got a lot of cuteness to live up to in following his adorable big sister, that’s for sure!!

The Hopkins | Hovander Park Family Mini

My friend Kristen, who was also my son’s amazing kindergarten teacher, was expecting her second bundle of incredible energy a couple of months ago and I jumped at the chance to take them all out to Hovander Park after school for a short family/maternity mini photo sesson. I love this family!

The Cantins | Seattle At-Home Family Photography

I was so excited to be able to capture these intimate at-home moments with Tony & Sheri in their charming downtown Seattle home with baby Oliver. Their 2019 wedding was EPIC, at the most AMAZING venue in Minneapolis (check it out here), and there is almost nothing I love better about my job than being…

Baby Cecelia | Lynden Newborn Photography

The beginning of a life is breathtaking and heartrending in its beauty; and when a life is as longed for and hard-fought for as Cecelia’s, the joy is magnified almost beyond comprehension. This incredible mom & dad tried for years to add to their family, finally succeeding and naming her Cecelia after a beloved grandmother….

May Day was beautiful this year, even beyond the perfect spring weather; because two of the sweetest, most deserving people started a new life together. I completely adore Katie and she has found her perfect match in Ryan. Congratulations again, you two – you’ve got a lot of happy years in front of you! ❤️

Baby Fox | Urban Maternity Photos

I am so happy that another adorable baby Fox on the way! First of all, just look at this little cherub – her brother is going to have some serious cuteness to measure up to. Secondly, Aaron and Brenna are two of the sweetest, most loving parents and I love watching them build such a…

The Francasters | Fall Family Photos

Sparkling eyes, infectious giggles – I pretty much immediately fell in love with this family. The kids jumped out of the car ready to play, and with all the fall colors and PNW sunset behind us, it was a beautiful playful photo session!

The Bushnells | Fall Family Photos

I have had the great privilege of personally knowing and being able to photograph this beautiful family from the time they first moved to Bellingham, and brought home two of their now-five kids waaaay back in 2008. Today, they have one kid in the Navy; one just about to start in-person classes at Gonzaga; one…

The Mitchells | Hovander Family Mini

Oh my goodness, this little girl’s faces!! She could make anyone fall in love with her. Sometimes with young kids, a 20-30 minute session is all that they’re going to stand for; fortunately, it’s all we need to frame up the story of what your lives are right in this moment!
