Little Will

Tacoma, WA

Toddlers are hard to keep still, but they sure do love to play. Little William was great at sitting still for a few moments, but curiosity always sets in. I think his favorite was jumping around the cushioned chair and running around with his doting family inches behind waiting for their reactions. I love seeing the joy in children as they play and the curiosity that comes from their daily discovery of life.

Johnson Family

Fircrest, WA

These guys are just the cutest. Unless your a mom, I don’t think you often understand the ordeal that goes into getting your family portrait done. Just to get kids dressed a lone, can be a tough job! Then the process of getting all kids to smile at the same time with out fighting or someone bursting into tears because their brother decided to squeeze their hand as hard as they could. Family photos can be  tough business.

But these guys were champions.

I had a lot of laughs going through these photos. The way kids smile or attempts to grin as big as they can, can be so hilarious and the Johnson bunch are adorable! I hope if you’re a mom, you can take joy in these. You know the process. You may be cringing to think of doing it with your own family. But at then end of the day, the photos and memories make everything worth it.

Stephanie + David

We are never to old to play dress up, right? Meet David and Stephanie. They are some of the most generous, thoughtful and compassionate hearts around Tacoma. They are celebrating their 10-year anniversary this year and wanted to do something unique and fun!

So they decided to go to an amazing costume shop in Tacoma and picked out two fantastic outfits for a late 1800s look. They rented out the Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad museum. The Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad is a steam-powered heritage railroad operating in Washington State between Elbe and Mineral.  We got to have private access with the iconic Polson 70 Locomotive out on the railroad tracks and access to the Rod House and House of Gears where other timeless trains were located.This anniversary shoot was such a blast! The Guptill’s are full of joy and deep adoration for each other, which made for easy models! Happy Anniversary Stephanie and David!

Cullinane Maternity

Vashon, WA

Aly and DJ are expecting a little girl mid-April! This precious baby girl will be named Kennedy Rae. I am so excited to meet her once she is here and hope to do some newborn shots! We planned this photo shoot on Presidents Day this last week. I was nervous we were going to have to re-schedule because the weather was so horrible! The day before was very stormy and poured all day! Yet as the morning came, we had a window of time where it cleared out for some cold, but clear weather! So we ventured out on the beautiful winter beaches of Vashon Island where our family beach homes are located. Isn’t Aly a hot mama?!
