The Wyss Family | Waypoint Park Mini Session

I cannot tell you how much I love this family – and how many times I giggled while editing their session this year. After a rained-out reschedule we managed to catch the last bit of sun one evening at Waypoint Park and chased the toddler around while throwing rocks and watching for trains… it was…

The Osborns | Woodstock Farm Family Photos

I adore this family. Their rambunctious kids are so much like mine – our daughters even share the same name! – and after so many years of photographing their family milestones I am definitely hanging out with friends for every Osborn session. ๐Ÿ™‚ Woodstock Farm at sunset – what a beautiful location! The best part…

The Loomos Family | Vanderyacht Park Family Photos

I’ve had the privilege of photographing Adam & Caitlin from their wedding up through their newest life adventure – the addition their soon-to-arrive rainbow baby, and Loomos-minion #2! We had so much fun at Vanderyacht Park for a fully fall photo session. Can’t wait to meet the newest Loomos boy!

The Songs | Vanderyacht Park Family Photos

Way back in 2015, we met Edwin and Rosemary when they were starry-eyed kids getting married (and their wedding is still gorgeous! Check it out here.) Fast forward a few years and they now have two wild kids of their own, but are just as gorgeous as they ever were. I couldn’t get enough of…

The Carlsons | Hovander Park Family Photos

There are some people you encounter in life who are inspiring just because of the authentic, deep-rooted person that they naturally are. Jess is one of those people for me. She lives her ordinary life with an extraordinary heart, with a depth of love and joy that is open to everyone she comes into contact…

The Hiorns | Extended Family Photos at Semiahmoo

When you have a close-knit extended family, it’s a treat to get all together for family photos. Bob & Sandy Hiorns have created a beautiful legacy within their family, and to help celebrate their 51st anniversary this year (wow!), everyone came out to Semiahmoo to hang out for a sunset evening on the beach with…

The Williams | Fairhaven Family Photos

I love it when families want an urban twist on their photo session. I got to meet up with this awesome family in downtown Fairhaven this summer and we had a blast wandering around our beautiful little town!

Baby Colton | Lynden Lifestyle Newborn Photos

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!

Baby Emma | Lifestyle Newborn Photography

OH MY GOODNESS – will you please just appreciate the perfection of this girl’s cheeks?! I literally could not get over how beautiful Emma is, and she was such a happy baby during the entire photo session! Her parents got an absolute gem with this child. Dream baby!

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 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!

Ziesldorf | Hovander Family Mini

Two little girls, flower dresses, fall leaves on the ground and a rustic wooden fence = romantic family photos. Oh wait, did I mention the incredible foggy background we happened to get that morning? Make that romantic family photo PERFECTION.

Wieschers | Fall Family Photos

Oh my goodness, I love fall at Hovander Park! And this adorable little family coordinated themselves so perfectly with the fall colors; this couldn’t have gotten any better.

Bates | Skagit Family Photos

Adorable tiny curly heads under umbrellas, cute rain boots stompin’ in back alley puddles – it’s what my urban family photo dreams are made of! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Plus, anytime I get to hang out and laugh with this family it’s a good day. I met Chris & Chelsea in the charming downtown Mt Vernon just before…

Buddy | Best Friend Dog Photos

โ€œUntil one has loved an animal a part of oneโ€™s soul remains unawakened.โ€ โ€• Anatole France Buddy is getting on in years, and I was honored to capture the memory of his life and faithful friendship with Steve & Kristi. Our dogs are our treasured family, and their mark on our lives is wonderfully deep.

Elashkar | At-Home Family Photos

A father & son have a bond like no other. Big families, tiny families – all have memories to capture and cherish. Stay grateful for all that you have, and hold them close today.

Wyss Family | Fall Photos at Hovander Park

I love family photos with young children, but I love it even more when it’s with my tribe; and these are my people. Lovely fall color, goofy kids and good friends!
