A new addition…

I’ve taken photos for this dear family several times in the past- it helps that we’ve known each other for a decade.  When Krista advised me a photo session would be in order to help announce a new addition, I jumped at the idea!  She’ll be a lucky mom to another beautiful baby boy and surrounded by her guys- Chris and Jake!  We used the Sugar Beet Factory as our backdrop and had a lot of fun.  Jake will be an amazing big brother, I just know it.  Congratulations to you all!

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!

Austin Radio

What does a little rain, a guitar, and family all have in common? A photo session with Austin Radio.

I had the pleasure of taking some new promo shots for my favorite acoustic rock & country duo.  They happen to be family, but don’t jump to conclusions thinking that I am biased about their talent. These two elude fun when they sing. They are engaging, personal, and above all, incredible musicians.  We took a rainy summer evening and knocked out a few shots at an undisclosed location. (Let’s say, we didn’t get permission…)

If you get a chance, check them out and go see them live.  They have a few gigs lined up this summer in the Olympia area.

Four Hands, Eight Paws

I love a family photo shoot. I love more when I get a chance to include furry children in the mix.  As a fellow dog rescuers and newlyweds, Erica and Kyle, love their kids- Andy and Bella.  Both rescued, it is more than clear that they live the good life.  They were so much fun to work with- happy and in love. And for the record, Bella managed to chew through her leash in record time when it was time for Kyle and Erica to get a few photos solo. These guys were a blast.
