I LOVE this couple!!! {Port Orchard, WA Portrait Photographer}

I didn't want to stop editing this beautiful couple!  Ali and Charlie actually live in Florida, and were only in town for the weekend teaching a fitness workshop.  These two were so fun to watch together, you could feel the LOVE, let me tell you :)!!  I am still reeling from the amazing time we spent together.  I hope we meet again real soon Ali and Charlie!!  In the mean time enjoy your photos :)!!

PS - She brought her wedding dress with her so we could make up for some of those lost pictures.....Doesn't she look stunning?!?!

Can you say GORGEOUS!!! {Kitsap County Family Photographer}

That is what this couple was...GORGEOUS!!!  I am SO thankful for the awesome opportunity to shoot this amazing couple.  Their wedding photographer lost their wedding photos, and I was honored and humbled to try and capture a few moments that will hopefully make up for their loss in some small way.  These two are just as beautiful on the inside as they are out!  So enjoy your sneak peek Ali and Charlie, and stay tuned because their are many more to come :)!!

Busy Busy....{Washington Photographer}

Hi Everyone :),

This past week has been so busy, and this week is about to get even crazier!! Friday Ben and I were supposed to spend the weekend in Boston to celebrate 10 years of marriage bliss (Ha :)!) And just to make sure things don't get too routine around here, we missed our flight and decided to go to Vegas instead :)!! It was a wonderful weekend and a much needed break for the two of us :)!!

This week I have three shoots that I am super excited about, and a childhood friend coming into town :)!! I only have one possibly two spots open for October, and I was thinking, if anyone is interested in doing a session up at Hunter Farms I would be so up for that. If you don't know, Hunter Farms is a really cool pumpkin farm, and would be THE BEST location for this time of year!!!

Meanwhile here is one more shot from our Alaska trip :)!!

My OCD ..... {Port Orchard, WA Childrens Photographer}

Today was my son's first day of Kindergarten.  He has been SO ready for a while now, and in turn I have been SO ready for a while now too.  So I was surprised today how emotional I was as I walked out of his classroom.  It caught me off guard, and reminded me how deep my love for him is.   What does this have to do with my OCD, well I took pictures of the big day, but couldn't bring myself to edit them because I still have so many Alaska pictures to edit.  Seriously if you know me you know how I work, I have to totally finish one task before I can move on to the next.  So I instead I edited some Alaska picture of just Braydon in honor of his big day :)!!  We are so proud of this little fisherman :)!!

Picture Perfect! {Manchester WA, Family Photographer}

My session this past week was with such a wonderfully classic family. They picked such beautiful colors to wear which just complimented the green location we chose perfectly. We noticed a few of the trees starting to turn while we were shooting which made me all the more excited for beautiful fall pictures. Meanwhile, I am in love with this adorable seven year old Mr. "A", and can't get over his mothers goregous curls!! Thank you "S" family, it was truly a pleasure :)!!

September is Booked!! {Kitsap County Family Photographer}

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to let you know that September is booked solid.  I have a few spots available in October but they are booking up fast, so if you are interested in some beautiful fall pictures to be here in time for Christmas let me know!!

I still am going through our Alaska pictures, they will probably keep showing up sparadically throughout the year :)!!  This picture represents the very reason why we do these crazy adventures every year, and why I go.  The pure joy that he experiences while fishing and being out in the wilderness is why I sleep on the ground for seven nights, battle the bugs, and worry about the bears :)!  I imagine it is comparable to the joy I feel when I am shooting.  Now we can combine our two passions.  So I guess in this shot we are both doing what we love :)!
