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.

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! 😉 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

“Until one has loved an animal a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” ― 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.

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.

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!

Baby Morgan | Lifestyle Home Newborn Photos

Adding a second child takes your lives up more than one notch! I love capturing the first few weeks of the blur of chaos, exhaustion, love and excitement of the second or third arrival. Getting into your home with a lifestyle newborn session lets me capture emotions as they show up in your everyday lives….

Hovander Park is beautiful in the fog! And a lovely creamy backdrop for this kid’s adorable cheeky grin. Thanks for bringing mom & dad along for family photos, little scamp!

The Osborns & Then Some | Tennant Lake Family Photos

Your family is your most valuable asset in this life; related or chosen, they are the people you cherish the most when it comes right down to it. When my families want to include their other close family members in their annual photo session, it adds such an incredible dynamic to the energy and emotion…

The Theisens | At-Home Family Photos

Some of my dearest friends asked me to come out to a favorite park of theirs to do family photos; but the day of the session, the rain was doing its off-again-on-again thing. So instead, we met up at their gorgeous home in Blaine and tried our darndest to get the best of the weather!…

This gorgeous family is adding one more rambunctious ball of joy soon, and we caught the perfect last light of the day for their maternity photos at Tennant Lake on the backside of Hovander Park.

Williams Family | At-Home Lifestyle Mini

Moving across the country as a young family is a massive adventure; and our friends are undertaking this adventure with great excitement. Before they left, however, they wanted to capture a few lasting of memories where they began their family and have spent so many hours enjoying – their home. ♥ We’ll miss you! Wishing…

The Templin Family | Whatcom Falls Park

There is just something so incredible about being invited into people’s lives repeatedly as a photographer; to peek in every year or so, marvel at how their children have grown and appreciate as their relationship deepens and evolves. I am always honored to be invited back.

Perfecting Your Newborn Session

The looooong wait is nearly over, and each day that goes by you find yourself wondering if this will be “it”. Every twitch has your full attention. Your internet search history is full of tips that include brisks walks, eating pineapple, and drinking raspberry tea… among a few much more weird ones (riding a seesaw,…

The Richardson Family | Spring Mini | Woodstock Farms

“At the end of our lives, we’ll see it was about having fun, rather than being serious; and celebrating each of us rather than correcting one another. It was about wearing our hearts proudly in public rather than hiding them away. And it was about being together. Like, really *being* together.” –S.C. Laurie
