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!

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! πŸ˜‰ 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

β€œUntil 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.

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….

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!

Alex + Adrienne | The Farmhouse Rose Wedding

We really couldn’t have ordered up a better day for Alex & Adrienne to tie the knot at the gorgeous Farmhouse Rose estate; post-smoke, and avoiding all of the forecasted rain, it turned out to be a beautiful sunny day complete with fluffy white clouds. I am completely in love with this venue and all…

Taylor + Sydney | Forest Wedding

I think there might not be anything more perfectly picturesque than a forest wedding, with gorgeous soft moss hanging from knobby trees and sunlight filtering through branches that are dropping their leaves for fall. Taylor and Sydney chose a rustic cabin in hills of Demming, at the foot of Mount Baker, for their short-and-sweet ceremony…

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!…

I am very honored to be chosen again by the wedding experts over at Expertise.com as one of the top nine wedding photographers in Bellingham. I love what I do, and especially this year with all of the challenges you all are facing and the changes that has made in your wedding plans, I am…

Faith | Bellingham Urban Senior

Faith has an incredible sense of style, and killer makeup skills; I had so much fun laughing around the back alleys of Bellingham for her senior session! The texture and grunge of an urban photo shoot is honestly my favorite.

Colton + Heather | Year One

These lovebirds are celebrating their first anniversary – and what better way than to get all wedding-ed up again and go have a photo session?? I had so much fun with this. You guys are a riot and I like you! πŸ˜‰

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.
