Abram Turns 3!

Seattle, WA

This year has been wild – it’s our second Covid-19 birthday in our family. Sadly, it means a very small party with just us, but we still have a lot of love to give this little boy! Abram requested a Paw Patro themed party, which is fitting since this summer he is either naked 24/7 or determined to wear his Marshall costume if he deems clothes necessary. I am so blessed to call this little joy my son. You make all of us laugh each day, you have a compassionate heart and a mighty will! We are so privileged to be your parents, watch you grow and love you in the process. Happy Birthday, Abe, we love you so much!

Zac & Kim Engagement

Tacoma, WA

What a beautiful spring day we had last month for this Zac and Kim’s engagement photos! We sneaked in some shots with appropriate social distancing. We had a lot of laughs and an eerily quiet park all to ourselves, which was lovely! I am excited to photograph their wedding this September in eastern Washington.  I got a sneak peak of Kim’s dress and lets just say WOW!

And one that is just for fun, because we have to remember the COVID-19 pandemic during all of this 😉 Stay safe at home, friends!

Ephraim Turns 4

Seattle, WA

My first born turns four today! Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus, we had to for-go a birthday party. So instead, I’ve been trying to find more responsible social distancing and creative ways to celebrate E. One of the ways, was this – we did a fun photoshoot with color powders! His little bro, didn’t want to miss out on the fun so, Abram snuck in on these photos too.

One of my favorite moments this week with Ephraim was when we went to go pick out a gift for him. He got to choose and he picked out a pretty small item. I asked him if he wanted to get another gift, and he told me, “Mom, I am ok. I have a lot of toys already and I want to save these for other kids.” MELT MY HEART. I am so proud to be this kids mom. He is so compassionate, generous and loving. I am excited for this next year to watch you grow little E and its an honor to be your momma. You make this world shine brighter! I love you!

Tom

Seattle, WA

Tom asked me to do some portrait shots for him to have for his new book coming out this year. He told me he has never had so many photos taken of him! ha! The digital age is something else.

Snapping his head shots also made me realize, particularly in this time with the COVID-19 pandemic, how much we need to reach out and appreciate our elders. Go give them a squeeze if appropriate, ask if they need anything or give them a call. Even though it’s been a crazy time, appreciate slowing down, spending some quality time with your family and reaching out to those you love.
