Jordan & Natalie || Pacific Northwest Intimate Wedding

Over the last 10 years of being a professional photographer, I have had the privilege and honor of photographing many weddings of all sizes. All unique. All sacred. All beautiful.

On September 16th, Jordan and Natalie made vows to each other in a beautiful ceremony located at the groom's parents beautiful sprawling 10 acre home. With just 8 people attending, this intimate affair was nothing but perfection.

I absolutely loved photographing this day! To be a part of such an intimate ceremony was truly an honor.

Natalie & Jordan,
May God's face shine upon your marriage and bless you abundantly! Thank you for inviting me to document your beautiful and spectacular day! Enjoy this sneak peek!

Adoption Update || Personal

My blog has been a tad quiet here on my business website. That is not for the lack of goings on, but the opposite. Life has been extremely full as we near travel for our adoption.

In fact, we are so close I can taste it and each day is another agonizing day of waiting for the next piece of paper that needs to be signed and sent off. But let me also say, IT IS ALLLLLLLL WORTH IT!

If you would like to follow along on our adoption journey, I will be make frequent updates on my personal blog: Living the Everyday.

This has been the most incredible journey I have every been on since marrying my husband and giving birth to our daughter. It is incredible and I can't wait to meet our little guy!

The "E" Family || Pacific Northwest Family Portraits

I had the honor of photographing this incredible family a few weeks ago. They are wonderful people inside and out and I love their story of how they have grown their family throughout the years. 

The adoption process is an amazing journey. It may not be easy, but it is amazing. I have had the privilege of being surrounded by awesome families like this one who have encouraged us as we continue our process. And I cling to the guidance and wisdom families like this one provides in preparing us to bring our little guy home.

It was a blessing to photograph this wonderful family!

Hollis Turns ONE! || Pacific Northwest Portrait Photographer

Documenting a baby's first year is such a blast for me! To see them from itty-bitty babe's to sitting up and standing by their first year is just too much fun! It also reminds me of how FAST a year goes by!

This one year session was particularly fun for me because this sweet girl is one of four of whom I have photographed all of her brothers since they were peanuts in their mommy's tummy! Not to mention her mommy is CRAZY talented and made her birthday banner and had the BRILLIANT idea of doing her cake smash OUTSIDE! Ten years I have been a photographer and never once did I think to do a messy cake smash outside. Seriously, brilliant! LOL

Happy Birthday Sweet Hollis!!

Gender Reveal || Pacific Northwest Portrait Photographer

I just love this sweet couple!

I have known them prior to their engagement and have had the incredible opportunity of documenting their love grow from dating through marriage and now baby #2! To say being a photographer and documenting these incredible life moments is a privilege is a complete understatement. 

I could not be more thrilled for Courtney & Austin and their sweet baby boy who will be joining us in 2018!!! I can't wait to meet him! Here's a fun little sneak peek from their gender reveal session!
