A sweet engagement

J & M have been high school sweethearts turned long lasting love.  I had the privilege to have taken their Senior Portraits in the past few years, and was thrilled to hear of their engagement.

We went to Tumwater Falls Park to take in the massive water show going on with several days of heavy rain.  They were such good sports to play after the rain and amidst the loud waterfall below.  Only the best to them for their wedding day and years together ahead.

Tihalish- Yelm High School Class of 2015

It is that time of year- everyone is back to school.  This includes the class of 2015!

I was lucky enough to get a chance to take photos for my first Class of 2015 Senior this week- Tihalish. A football man with a successful future pointed in the direction of the sciences, this guy has a lot of great things ahead of him.  Wishing him only the best in last year of high school ahead!

Go Tornadoes!

Bright Future

Fall is upon us, which of course means lots of Senior Portrait Sessions.

Jackson is a Senior at Olympia High School- and athlete, musician, artist, and all around great guy. As most high school seniors this time of year, he had a big day planned including a football game, but managed to squeeze a short photo session in at Tumwater Falls.  He’s looking to the future and I can tell it will be bright! Best of luck this year Jackson!

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.

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.

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
