I don’t shoot in a studio very often… okay, fine, I don’t EVER shoot in a studio, haha. But it was such a fun change of pace! And let’s be honest, these two would look amazing and beautiful no matter where they are being photographed! I loved watching how supportive and encouraging Mark was to […]

DeserRai is the brilliant mind behind this shoot! She picked the location, the outfits and the extra touches! And I’m so glad she did because clearly that is something she is amazing at! It was a warm… I mean hot… summer evening but you can’t even tell because these three totally nailed this shoot. DeserRai […]

Oh, these two! Can they be expecting a child all the time so that I can forever take maternity pictures of them?! Haha, kidding of course. ;) Because even though I love how they look as an expecting couple, I know they look even MORE amazing as parents! :) These two are so incredibly comfortable […]

I met Sarah and Jake early in the morning for a sunrise maternity session in a city outside of Seattle! They were so sweet and brought me a hot coffee from their home, we’re they’ve been preparing to launch their own coffee shop! I’m so excited for them! When it finally opens, make sure to […]

Danielle was browsing Pinterest one day searching for some maternity photo inspiration and she stumbled upon one of my photos from my lavender field shoot in Portland. What are the odds that she would find that photo on Pinterest, be directed to my website and find out we live in the same area! It must […]

I LOVE being able to take photos of the special times in my friends lives!! Wait, have I said that before?! Yes, I’ve said that every single time I post a blog with photos from times I’ve been able to document special moments and memories for my close friends!! I’ve been close with Shayla since […]
