Braving the Cold

This family is always lucky to have a sunny day, but it is ALWAYS cold for their photo session.  This year we chose the Tacoma Glass Museum as a backdrop. Even with the freezing temperatures, we managed to have fun and capture another memory!

Fall Family Photos

I adore the Ritter Family.  They have been a large part of my life since kindergarten after meeting their oldest daughter and my best friend The Natural Ginger.  They have a breathtaking piece of land nestled in the Cascades and a thriving business at Ritter Farms specializing in weddings and events.

When they get a chance to be in the same place at the same time, we’ve managed to capture a few photos.  We had the opportunity when the extended family had a photo session, so we had to take full advantage of the opportunity to get some new family portraits.

Grandmother’s Pride & Joy

I’ve known my favorite family with the big red barn for many, many years. Many of those years were without a photo of everyone at the same time in the same place.

When asked by Grandma Kathy to take photos of the many kids who have called the family property home, I was happy to get the camera out and capture a moment in time for her.  It was a cold and very windy day- and everyone did their part to make it a fun and QUICK photo session.  I see why there is so much of a Grandmother’s Pride & Joy in these photos as each grandchild brings laughter and happiness to her in their own way.

Cold Air, Warm Hearts

I love spending time with families- especially this one. This darling group braved an extraordinarily bright and brisk day for family photos. Our hour shoot, was quickly cut short to keep noses from getting too rosey and fingers from freezing.

These three beautiful girls full of sweetness ad giggles kept mom and dad warm.

The Sweetest 1st year

I love that over the last few years, I have had the pleasure of taking photos for families as they grow.  Stacy and Victor are no exception. I was honored to photograph their incredible wedding, and the first few weeks of them welcoming Baby C into their family.  Now, a year old, she is mobile, and bubbly, and so so so sweet. After postponing due to fog, we managed to snag a few minutes to capture their darling family in action.

Carkeek Park Photo Session

I was lucky enough to zip up to Seattle’s Carkeek Park for a beach and fun filled photo session with this sweet family.  These girls are as energetic as they are adorable .  The park offered great views and the best playground in town. We all left worn out and happy. It was a true summer’s day!  Hoping them only the best for the rest!
