So I'm blessed to not only be shooting a wedding today, but I'm also shooting a wedding tomorrow as well! I'm getting ready to run out of here and head up to picturesque Snohomish, but I thought I'd share a quick sneak peak from last...

Willows Lodge Hotel June, 2010 It was such a lovely weekend. Even though it was cloudy the rain held off and I had such amazing light for the wedding on Saturday! The weather was perfectly cool, and there was an amazing mixture of aromas from the...

Seaside is one of my families favorite places to vacation. We discovered this small beach community years and years ago while visiting family in Panama City Beach. Seaside is about 40 minutes west of PCB. We’ve had lots of family reunions, vacations, and birthdays at Seaside, and it’s been fascinating to see how it’s built up in the last 15 years.  The Seaside of years past was literally a one road town with cute little shops and markets, and a killer shave ice store:) Now it’s a humongous community with art galleries, restaurants, and high end shopping. Thankfully though most of our favorite spots are still around, and now there are six, yes I said six, air stream trailers with shave ice and other assorted goodies.  The white sand, blue umbrellas, and clear ocean water do us in every time, and the essence and beauty of Seaside is still very much in tact.

Seaside is one of the hardest places to leave, it’s literally painful every time we have to pack up and go home, but we always know we will be back again soon. Riding bikes, eating shave ice, and laying under our big blue umbrellas starring out at the gorgeous Gulf.  Seaside has been lucky so far not to have received any oil, and we continue to pray to the beach gods that our adored beach community will make it through this horrific tragedy.

Seaside I miss you already, until next year!

On one of my first weddings of the season I had the couple that every photographer dreams of having! Kristie and John are both laid back, genuine, secretly hilarious people, and I spent the whole day in awe of how in love they are. The day started off quiet and reserved, both were a little timid and a little nervous. As the day progressed however the dry humor and the laughter echoed through the halls of Phinney Ridge Presbyterian.  My cheeks hurt by the time we got to the ceremony, and I wasn’t even the one getting my picture taken! Here are some of my favorite images of the day…….

Kristie wore a gorgeous Luly Yang Dress with an amazing bow and vintage broach.

Kristie is a classic beauty, it wasn’t hard to get an amazing shot of her!

Well I'm back from my wonderful vacation with Justin and my family, and I'm so excited to share with you the portraits I took of my baby sister Mallory. I wish we could have done a real portrait session, but I was able to snap...

There's a song that they sing when they take to the highway A song that they sing when they take to the sea A song that they sing of their home in the sky Maybe you can believe it if it helps you to sleep But singing works just...

I think I'm going to start a new series of Charlie doing silly things at different locations in Seattle:) Every time we take him with us to places he always behaves, but it's just so funny to see his quirky idiosyncrasies when he is experiencing...
