Happy/smiley babies are simply the best thing ever. The only thing that could make them any better would be dazzling them with perfect, golden light. Done and done.

The Kuntz family and I headed out to Discovery Park in Magnolia for a family photography session last month. The leaves hadn’t yet started changing but we kept ourselves quite occupied with the gorgeous yellow fields of tall grass, a red wooden chair and even some pink and purple balloons. What little girl doesn’t love pink and purple balloons?

The Kuntz family is such a gorgeous family, it was so easy to see the love that radiated from mom and dad toward their little one. Happy baby. Happy parents. Happy photographer.

Allison and Patrick’s Point Definance Rose Garden & Foss Waterway Seaport wedding was the first wedding celebration I have shot in Tacoma and it blew me away. Both locations were gorgeous, colorful, and full of opportunity. The waterfront deck at the reception venue was the perfect place for a sunset cocktail hour and provided guests with a pink and purple view of Mt. Rainier, dotted with bits of industrial landscape and working boats that ironically were a very cohesive blend of nature and industry and was very perfectly Tacoma. Foss Waterway Seaport is a maritime museum, so it was filled to the brim with ships in bottles, wooden boats hanging from the ceiling and lots of information and photos about the boat history of Tacoma.

Now the bride and groom, Allison and Patrick. Besides the fact that they are completely and utterly gorgeous together, they are super funny, lighthearted and kind. I love their love story. They met while at an improv class in Chicago years ago and haven’t looked back since. They both have wonderful families and gaggles of friends who love them dearly. Their wedding day together was stress-free, fun and extremely joyous, exactly how it should be. I admire these two whole-heartedly.

High school senior photo sessions are my favorite type of photography portrait session. I love the challenge of working with one person, making them feel comfortable, and also bringing out their personality so that their images really represent them. Stephanie rocked her senior session. We shot at Mercer Slough Nature Park & Blueberry Farm in Bellevue, Washington. She brought great outfits and a great smile and was such fun to photograph. I love this park because of the diversity in backgrounds and settings. There is the blueberry farm, the woods, the slough with its awesome wooden walkways, and the river and multiple bridges that cross it.

Brittney and Scott got married on July 26th at Tibbetts Creek Manor in Issaquah, Washington. The day was hot, but friends and family donned their sunglasses and summer sundresses, grabbed a cold drink (or three) and laughed, cried, danced and celebrated the marriage of this soccer-loving pair. The grounds at Tibbetts Creek were so lush and green, it was a great location for an outdoor summer wedding celebration. I love when I get to work with couples who are so admired by their friends. It was easy to see the love and friendship that existed between this couple and their wedding party, and it was only confirmed by the wonderful things that were said by all during the toasts. Congrats Brittney and Scott!

Garfield High School senior Shane and I headed out to Capitol Hill at the end of August for his senior photo session. Cal Anderson park, Seattle Central Community College and random pockets and nooks between office buildings on Broadway served as our backdrops. We shot during the latest part of the day and the sun did an amazing job of creating some beautiful backlight and lots of color for me to play with.
