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 [...]

Time for this Mom to brag!

My first born landed a summer internship with Tetra Tech in Bellevue, WA. His Dad and I have been bursting with pride and excitement since we found out yesterday. It is such a good feeling when you are talking with your son - over the phone - and you can hear the smile on his face! We are so thankful he has this opportunity. Now to find a place for him to live! Bellevue is an expensive town and the traffic up there is horrendous! So we are praying for someone with an extra room, basement, trailer to rent (cheap). [...]

Play Ball!

I really enjoyed hanging out with the Turkeys and the Reds at Prairie Baseball fields last week. They seem like such a fun group of young men who share a passion for baseball. The opposite teams seemed to be friends and they were all having a good time. I took a lot of pictures  so it took some time going through them all. I was at a bit of disadvantage not knowing the boys. It was difficult keeping track of who I had photographed - especially since they are all dressed alike!  :lol: Another challenge was the dramatic changes in [...]

Some of this Week’s Goals….

Here is my favorite shot (so far) from last weeks baseball pictures taken at Prairie Fields, in Brush Prairie, WA I love the dust flying off of his glove! One of my goals this week is to have all of these pictures processed and on my website by Wed.

Another goal is to book [...]

Graduate – Miss Brooke {Vancouver, WA & Battle Ground, WA Senior Photographer}

I love graduate sessions! I love all my sessions but there is always something a little extra special about being able to focus on one person who is about to reach one of those significant steps in life. Miss Brooke is excited to be graduating and heading to high school next year! I will let you in on a little secret - I took 25 pictures of this pose and held my breathe looking through them and was THRILLED to find ONE where Brooke and her sweet pup were both looking my way! ( To be clear Brooke was VERY [...]

Sisters –

Today I would like to share with you some more pictures from my Mother's Day Mini Sessions. These sisters have energy to spare and are so much fun to work with! This session was their Mom's Mother's Day gift. We had a great location along the Salmon Creek Trail for the mini session. I loved the tall grasses and wildflowers and sandy/rocky beach. The girls sent their dad off to pick some flowers and we incorporated them into some of the pictures. Look at those gorgeous eyes! Another benefit to our location was the creek! They know their mom likes [...]

Thompson Family

Senior Session- Shelby

When someone calls and asks for me to photograph them I do a happy dance! I didn't know Shelby but I knew I would like her the minute she told me she wanted to go to Powell's Books for part of her Senior Session.  :-D  A woman after my own heart! If there was sound with the above picture you would hear the individual behind me repeatedly say that he was calling the police and not to move because they were on their way! Fortunately Shelby was able to ignore him and we just did our thing  :lol:   With [...]

Chase and Katie!!!

Oh my goodness!!! Talk about patience! Sweet Katie waited 8 years for the man of her dreams to get down on one knee. But the day finally arrived as they were cruising somewhere between the Cayman Islands and Ft. Lauderdale. While in the middle of the Sea Chase asked her to be his wife.  :-)  Katie puts a beautiful twist on the long journey by writing "we've spent the last eight years making sure we are perfect for each other and we're very excited for our wedding in November." We had a blast at yesterdays shoot but the weather kept us on [...]
