Outdoor Boudoir – Styled Shoot

This Summer I kind of got in a rut. I was itching to do something creative and different but couldn’t figure out what I wanted. I was complaining to my best friend about my frustration and she suggested doing a styled shoot. Something different and edgy, something I had never done before. Yes, I have done outdoor boudoir shoots, but nothing in the water and nothing quite as edgy as I wanted. I still wanted to keep it classy, though.

On the way to the place where I had envisioned doing this styled shoot, we ran into some construction and we had to take a detour. That detour led me down a road I was actually familiar with. So we ended up doing the styled shoot in a place I used to train for my half marathon. It was fun to go back and actually use the spots I had dreamed of using. Funny how things work out that way.

Thank you to the amazing Nikki Molinar for helping with the hair and makeup. She drove all the way up from Kirkland, WA. I always love working with that girl. And a huge thank you to Anna Goad for modeling for us. She is so professional and sweet! She was on my model list for a long time and I was so glad to finally use her for this. She was freezing cold, but so professional and easy to work with. Not to mention fun!2015-09-17_0001 2015-09-17_0002 2015-09-17_0003 2015-09-17_0004 2015-09-17_0005 2015-09-17_0006 2015-09-17_0007 2015-09-17_0008 2015-09-17_0009 2015-09-17_0011 2015-09-17_00102015-09-17_0012 2015-09-17_0013 2015-09-17_0014 2015-09-17_0015 2015-09-17_0016 2015-09-17_0017 2015-09-17_0018 2015-09-17_0019 2015-09-17_0020 2015-09-17_0022 2015-09-17_00212015-09-17_0024 2015-09-17_00232015-09-17_0025 2015-09-17_0026 2015-09-17_0027 2015-09-17_0028 2015-09-17_0029expl

Seattle Senior Portrait Photographer: Miss Nina – Class of 2016

Nina is one of my brides’ little sister. I loved spending the day with her and was so hoping she would want me to photograph her senior pictures. She is gorgeous inside and out! She is such a fun, happy girl, too. I wish I saw more of her and her sister. They are such a sweet family and truly have blessed my life.

Nina lives a bit far from me, so we decided to meet in Seattle at Discovery Park (my favorite place to take pictures in Seattle). This place has so many great places to shoot at and at one place!

Nina is super talented and has the greatest smile. I love photographing girls laughing and smiling. “Happy girls are the prettiest” – Audrey Hepburn

Senior Portrait Photographer: Miss Mackenzie Class of 2016

This girl is so beautiful and so unique! I loved getting to know her (we both share a love for animals). I am so excited to see where she goes in life after High School. She will make a great Vet!

The other day I was at the Northwest Fair and was in the photography area. I always love to see what other people do and take pictures of. I often know some of the people who take pictures and love to see their work. I was so shocked to see a picture Mackenzie had taken that was up on the wall (and it had a ribbon next to it too)! She never mentioned that she did photography or anything during out session. She had taken a great shot of a building. I love meeting seniors with so much heart and talent like this girl. She’s a true gem!

Happy 4th of July! – A 4th of July Wedding at Swiftwater Cellars

Happy 4th of July! – A 4th of July Wedding at Swiftwater Cellars

I hope everyone is enjoying their 4th of July and that everyone will be safe.

Last year I was celebrating the 4th wth these adorable people. Not only were they some of the kindest people I have ever met, but they were a blast to get to know and party with. I loved the sweet little details that Brittany put in the wedding. Her style is truly incredible as well! There were so many sweet and tender moments during getting ready and even during the reception. This wedding holds a very special place in my heart. It was one of those days you dont want to be over. I love being able to go back into the photos and remember how I was feeling. I know Brittany and Keith feel the same way.

I love being able to be a part of weddings. These are such special times and the emotion of the day is so raw and incredible. I truly love weddings!


This lovely wedding was celebrated at the gorgeous Swiftwater Cellars in Cle Elum. I can’t wait to go back therem someday! One of my favorite moments was when Francys (my second photographer) and I started taking pictures and a gust of wind blew Brittany’s veil up! It’s one of my very favorite images of all time. Its so real and her expression at that moment was priceless. The little ring bearer was a doll too! He was so fun to watch all day.


PS- Aren’t Brittany’s eyes incredible?! I love the two colors! I am so thrilled that later this year I get to take their maternity photos!

Ferndale Washington Senior Portrait Photographer: Ferndale High School Class of 2016 – Miss Anastasia

April is one of my favorite months for photoshoots (I may be a bit biased because I do love Springtime). Most of all, I love the beautiful pink Cherry Blossoms that bloom that time of year. I was so thankful that Anastasia was interested in doing some photos in them. She is very sweet and I look forward to having her as a rep for me this year.

Going through these photos made me realize that photographing senior truly makes me so happy. I love spending time with these girls and getting to know them. They are so fun and at such a fun stage in their life. They remind me to always try and stay young at heart.2015-07-01_0029 2015-07-01_0030 2015-07-01_0031 2015-07-01_0032 2015-07-01_0033 2015-07-01_0034 2015-07-01_0035 2015-07-01_0036 2015-07-01_0037 2015-07-01_0038 2015-07-01_0039 2015-07-01_0040 2015-07-01_0041 2015-07-01_0042 2015-07-01_0043 2015-07-01_0044 2015-07-01_0045 2015-07-01_0046 2015-07-01_0047 2015-07-01_0048

Bellingham Washington Senior Portrait Photographer: Squalicum High School Class of 2016 – Miss Lauren

This girl is so much fun! And I am not just sayin that because I also shot her sisters senior pictures, or because I am friends with the family, but because it’s the honest truth. I love this girls energy, excitmenet and kindness. She brightens the mood in any room! Her friends are truly lucky to have her. She almost feels like my little sister. We had a blast on this session. So much so I didn’t want to end the photoshoot.


I look forward to seeing where this girl goes. She’s bound for greatness (and so is her amazingly talented sister). Thank you, Lauren for being my senior rep this year!
