“It would be so easy to forget to love this life; to just go through the motions, doing what needs to be done, as if it’s all going to last forever. And I remind myself: the life that we have right here, right now, is the BEST life there is.”
-Katrina Kenison

The best summers are made up of ice cream, books, and downtown fun with Mom & Dad; or so says Maddie, only the most adorablest little she-child you’ve ever met. With her big blue eyes and delighted dimpled grin, she charms the socks off everyone she meets. I love this little family, and I loved our…

New life. It’s just amazing, it’s it? Those tiny little toes, minuscule fingernails, poochy lips and big, bright eyes. Taking everything in as brand new information. Screams and coos and giggles and smiles… you could just sit and stare at him for hours. Mom and Dad have a love for elephants… this one was in…

And Baby makes FOUR {Bellingham Maternity Photography}

Lindsay and I are due date buddies; we’re on a race to see who will come first, her daughter or our son! 😀 For now, though, I got to hang out with them on their farm and capture this short time in their family’s life as they await the arrival of the newest addition. Lincoln…

The Stampers {Bellingham Family Photography}

This was a bittersweet session with one of my favorite families. I’ve had the honor of photographing this little family from the time that Jane was a baby, and this weekend they’re moving cross-country. I’m excited for their new adventures but so sad for our church community and all that we’ll miss not have them…

The Parsons {Bellingham Family Photography}

It’s always a huge honor to be asked to photograph another photographer, and this week I got to hang out for  a “quick” family photo session for a friend of mine, Amy of Amy Parsons Photography. I say “quick” because our lovely plans for a 30 minute mid-afternoon mini session were skillfully thwarted by an…

The Theisens {Bellingham Family Photography}

Our dear friends Adam & Heidi just added to their little family (did you see baby Audree??), and needed something cute to put on their Christmas card this year. No problem there! 😉 So, for a quick few minutes yesterday afternoon, we beat both the rain and the sunset to snap a few shots of…

The Stampers {Bellingham Family Photography}

I love this little family, and this was my first time meeting baby Oliver, who’s now three months old. WHAT a little charmer!! I could just eat him up 🙂 Little Jane is still not sure what to do with me… every year I come over with this big black thing and I chase her…

The Soderquists {Bellingham Family Photography}

Heidi & Stu & their “brady bunch” are freaking hilarious – I’m telling you, if you don’t know this family, you’re totally missing out! With Nick home on leave for a few days from his Marine base, we scrambled together and met up at Elizabeth park to snap a few rare pictures of the ENTIRE…

The Dykstra Family {Bellingham Family Photography}

What a beautiful day this was for a mini session! Liz & Paul and their two adorable boys were SO much fun to run around Hovander with, and I was honored to capture a few moments in this family’s life. 🙂

The Wyss Family {Everson Family Photography}

Once upon a time, the Wyss family was made up of Mom, Dad, and two cute little boys. Now the boys are not so little, and they’ve added two wives (total, not each) and two impossibly adorable grandchildren into the mix. Kevin actually grew up with Brian & Adam, so this session for us was…

Ellie Mae {Bellingham Infant Photography}

Our dear friends D & Jen welcomed their newest family member into the world this August, and I was SO excited to come over for her first photo session! Big brother Trey loves baby Ellie… most of the time. 😉 They’re so cute together! And we got super lucky with a spot of gorgeous sunlight…

The Benner Family {Bellingham Family Photography}

I got together with this awesome family on a pretty summer day at Whatcom Falls Park. I loved their spunk, especially Olivia!! She was ALL over jumping in the falls to end the session, and she dragged the entire family with her. 😉 Love love love!

Schlieps & Englehart Families {Bellingham Family Photography}

For Mother’s Day, Daniel & Stephanie (one of our more adorable couples from last year) got both of their families together to get pictures for their moms. What a GREAT idea! I loved it, and so did the moms. 🙂  It was so much fun to see how two families have come together and created…

The Claytons {Bellingham Family Photography}

I could hardly stand the cuteness of this kid – check out those cheeks! And that red hair!! This little family drove down from Vancouver to meet me and play around for an hour to celebrate the first birthday of their little cutie; I had such a great afternoon with them.
