Home Frost

I love coming home. Not only to the home I’ve built with The Handsome, but the home I remember more than any- My Grandma’s house.  It was always comfortable, full of love, and so warm. So many memories that have been made, and still to come.

The best time there is early in the morning, on a very cold day, where you can leave the comforts of the wood stove in the back room and venture out into the orchard to roam.  It was an unusual and green Christmas gathering, but it was not without frosting.

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.

Fall Family Fun

I was lucky to snap a few photos with this adorable family for some pre-holiday portraits.  With a fantastic teenager and a darling 1 year old, this mom and dad have an abundance of to dos, but also a huge abundance of love! These guys were so fun to spend the afternoon with on one of my favorite little secret trails in town.

Love Found

I met Lupe through mutual friends about 4 years ago. She’s always been so full of life and joy.  I know now part of the reason why.  She and Roger met in Mexico have been married for several years now, and its so clear that they are in love. I was lucky enough to spend an hour with them capturing the fun and affection they share.

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!

Sisters

I spent a morning with these sisters (their folks, too) at Tumwater Falls for a quick photo session. The occassion was that there was a graduate in the mix and all the family was together in one place for the first time in years. One lives in British Columbia, one in Seattle, and one in Panama! I love when I can share the joy with a family at a time like this.Jones-75a
