I love people. I love photography. Put them together and you have my dream job! It never gets boring. I am forever learning new things and accepting new challenges. I'm a natural light photographer that specializes in various kinds of portrait photography (engagement, maternity, newborn, children, senior, families, etc.) Thanks for taking the time to look through my blog. My goal is to provide you with a custom portrait service that will help you to capture all the important memories and milestones that make life special...because every picture has a story to tell.

4th of July

We had our annual family 4th of July BBQ at my in-laws beautiful house on Lake Martha. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't as good as we'd hoped for, but we bundled up and had fun anyways! We enjoyed good food, great company and a FANTASTIC fireworks display that evening!

The whole gang in Laurie and Greg's beautiful backyard! 

The fireworks display on the lake is by far the BEST I've ever seen. The houses compete with one another to see who can deliver the best show. The displays often go on for hours with plenty of heckling and cheers from the crowds!

Melissa & Jeremy's E-Session

I have known and been friends with Melissa since 7th grade. So, when she asked that I take her engagement photos - I was both honored and excited. We met at the Edmonds Waterfront by the Ferry to begin our session. And, as luck would have it, it started to rain about 10 minutes after we started shooting. Typical Washington weather! But, after some shots under the trees and in a covered bus stop, it let up enough for us to get some good shots. Melissa and Jeremy are the cutest couple - truly meant for each other in every way. We even got to bring our their pup, Rocky, for a few family shots. He was a fantastic subject!! I am so excited for their big day in December!! 

Agh, here comes the rain!!! 

While hiding out in the bus stop until the rain let up...I caught the cute couple embraced in a laugh! 

Melissa always rocks the BEST shoes. I am so envious of her shoe collection!!
