Jillian and Brenden

Merry Christmas to you all! What a wonderful and joyous time to celebrate the birth of our Savior.

Recently, I had the privilege of photographing Jillian and Brenden. These two will be getting married this upcoming summer and have asked Chris and myself to be their photographers. We are honored! And can hardly wait for August to get here:)

Here are a few of my favorite photos from their engagement session at the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge. We took advantage of one of the few dry (but cold) December days. There are a few pics with an extra little cutie (my favs).  Enjoy:)

A Beautiful Day with Kaitlin

It’s almost graduation time! Parties are being planned, trips booked and our newest graduates are getting ready to enjoy their last “real” summer vacation:)

Last weekend, I had the honor of photographing this beautiful young lady. Meet Kaitlin; soon to be a Fife High School graduate, herself. Kaitlin and I met up at one of my favorite locations, the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge. There are so many photo opportunities here, and we took advantage of many of them. We even ran into some the local wildlife…wild rabbits! So cute! Kaitlin tried hard to quietly walk up to one for a quick pic, but that bunny had different ideas, like getting the heck out of there! Haha, it did make for some good laughs, though.

Kaitlin, I wish you the very best in your life’s journey. I am confident you will find a career path that is perfect for you:) Thank you for your joyful and fun filled spirit. I enjoyed you immensely! Congratulations on being a 2016 Trojans grad!

Caitrin’s Final Shoot…FINALLY!

Thanks for staying tuned for the saga of Caitrin’s senior year. Our original intent was to get in a senior session once a month throughout the school year. Alas, with Caitrin’s busy schedule, that did not happen. It was a challenge to fit it all in, but I think we got a good representation of who Caitrin is and how she has changed, even in just one year. Caitrin, you are an amazing young woman! I know you will go on to do great and wonderful things in your life. Congratulations on your graduation!  Can’t wait to see what the next phase of life brings. We are blessed by you:)

Please enjoy these few photos that I have chosen from Caitrin’s Nisqually Wildlife Preserve session.

Afternoon with Anna

Last weekend was, I think, our last really nice weekend of the year (weather wise). I was blessed to have a terrific senior session with Anna, who chose to meet me at the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge. This has been a popular location this senior season, and for good reason. There are so many great places to photograph at the refuge. The barns are a favorite for my “girls”. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Anna. As you will see, she is a beautiful young lady, with loads of life and personality. She was so much fun, and willing to try all sorts of poses…my favorite type of model:) Thank you, Anna, for such a lovely and enjoyable afternoon. Blessings on your future.

Beautiful Brianna

Last weekend I had the opportunity to meet and photograph Brianna for her senior portraits. Brianna told me she likes fields, water and barns, so my instinct was to take her to the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge just north of Olympia. She had never been to the refuge before, but I could see the approval in her eyes when we rounded the corner and came upon the pair of barns on the property. The morning started out with some fog and low clouds, but the sky quickly opened up for the sunny day she had been hoping for. Brianna is a beautiful young lady from Graham-Kapowsin  High School with big dreams and hopes for her future. Thank you, Brianna, for giving me the honor of being your photographer at this exciting and fun time in your life. I wish you the very best. Have an awesome senior year!!
