Variety is the spice of life

I get bored really quickly. I try not to! I try to live in the moment, savor the experience... and sometimes I'm successful with that. But more often than not I'm thinking ahead to what is next. One of the things I love about photography is the variety found in clients, locations, subject matter. This month I have found lots and lots of variety! I have done Senior sessions, graduations, professional head-shots, a real-estate shoot, two different events as well as a wedding and I love it! I love meeting new people, making new friends, being part of happy exciting [...]


First Day of Summer

Happy Summer! It has felt like Summer to me for awhile now but today it is official! This past weekend was a whirlwind! Saturday I had the privilege of photographing a former students wedding!  I was so excited to photograph her outdoor wedding under the gorgeous willows at my favorite park! And then there was rain, hail, sun, rain, etc - I will share the story and more of her lovely pictures on Wednesdays blog  ;-) Sunday we packed up Josh (he is always packing!) and convoyed up to Bellevue to move him into his new home for the Summer. [...]


Vacation memories

It's disturbing to me how quickly something you have been anticipating becomes a memory... :cry:   My niece and her hubby and my favorite nephew were able to join us for part of our time. It was so much fun having the cousins together! And along with the humans came the puppy cousins. They had a blast! There is so much to explore around Sun River! We hiked up Paulina Creek and enjoyed the gorgeous waterfalls and beautiful scenery. The puppies and Josh got in the water every chance they could! It was a bit cool while we were there [...]



Hi - I'm excited because our family is taking a little vacation! We are heading out today and won't return until next Wed. I will be posting on Instagram but I won't be blogging again until next Friday where I'm sure (hope) I will have lots of fun things to share! My Mom heart is bursting this morning because both of my boys are home! Josh rolled in about midnight last night and I just laid in bed saying prayers of thanks that they were both home after a successful year of college. Its a good feeling!!! Now the challenge [...]


Little Ones – Baron and Charlotte

As promised here are some of the pictures I took last week. These two Cuties were visiting from California and I'm so glad I had the opportunity to take their pictures! There were a few years different in ages so it made posing a bit tricky. But thankfully big brother was a good sport! He didn't complain about slobbery kisses or all the attention being focused on Miss Charlotte as we all attempted to get her to look at the camera and flash us a gorgeous smile  :-D Oh how I love this picture! Miss Charlotte is 6 months and [...]


Hi! – I need a minute!

Today's blog will happen tomorrow. I'm a bit overwhelmed with life at the moment (in a good way) So here are my pics from my 366 project and I plan to write a spectacular blog on Wed.! I hope all is well! Comfy 127/366 Lucy knows {comfy}! And yes we let her on the furniture but only when we are there with her for "snuggle time". She isn't suppose to just lounge around on the couch solo. So when I walked into the room and saw this :-o (and took a quick pic) she was scolded (just a little  ;-) [...]


Happy Mother’s Day Weekend!

Yes, it should be an entire weekend! A day is not enough to celebrate the wonderful Mom's in our lives and all they have done and do for us! I am soo grateful for my Mom! We have had some pretty fun adventures over the years and I look forward to many more! That's me and mom and my favorite doll Billy -  :-D My Mom has been a pillar of strength my entire life! She has been an bold example of faith and resilience for me! I'm very thankful for her! As a Mom I'm excited to have the [...]


Thompson Family

I've mentioned that I love my job and I really, really do!  As a photographer in the gorgeous Northwest I get to enjoy the beauty that surrounds me but more importantly - I just love working with people!  The joy in my job is at a whole new level when those people are some of my dear friends! I have had the pleasure of watching their kiddos grow up right along with mine and while the years don't match up exactly our kids are good solid friends and I love that! In the next few weeks this beautiful family will [...]



It's been a busy week of networking for me.  I'm new to this networking thing. The point meet people, get my name out there so when people think "hmmm I need a photographer" they know just who to call!  :-D This week I have meetings each and every day where I am putting myself out there in some way or another and while I'm always glad I do it - it can be stressful! Selling yourself is stressful!  8-O  There's nothing like walking around hoping someone likes what you are doing. Or admitting you need help from someone because you [...]
