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!

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! 😉 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.

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!

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….

The Petersons | Hovander Family Photos

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!…

Baby Pudasaini | Tennant Lake Maternity Photos

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…
