When I was Colorado last month my family and I spent a day hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park. We decided to hike to Alberta falls and I of course had my camera on hand:) It was an absolutely stunning day! My mom and dad at the...

Lots of my friends have babies and toddlers and I love spending time with them and seeing how much of my friend is apart of them. They are all beautiful children who I love photographing, and seeing them grow and learn is truly fascinating.  However,...

When I was home in Colorado earlier this month I had the great pleasure of attending Traci Remley's baby shower:) Traci is a childhood friend of mine who I hadn't seen in about eight years.  Other than the fact that she had a different last...

I got to see my baby sister last week and it was a wonderful unexpected treat:) It was a very last minute trip home to Colorado, but every time I see my sis I ALWAYS make time to take some pictures of her...

Every now and then (usually every other week) I start to reminisce of my families trip to the UK back in 2008. It really was the trip of a lifetime and I look back on it with some of the fondest memories of my life...

“Where bare feet and sandy floors rule!”

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!

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...
