Ephraim is ONE Month!

Seattle, WA

My baby boy turned 1 month old today! I can’t believe the milestones are already happening.  Ephraim is a lot more social, locking eyes and starting to make fun noises accompanied by big grins or stink faces. Big stretches and deep snuggles after a full tummy from nursing are some of my favorite moments with baby E. Happy 1 month little man!

Schallert Family

Seattle, WA

You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them. – Desmond Tutu.

Family is one of the most precious things in this world and the gift of being together is a joy to watch. The Schallert family ventured to Seattle this past week for a family reunion. Four sets of families from across the country from various states came to see each other. It was fun to see old friends, Dianne and Steve, who have been serving in South Africa for a few years with their adorable kids and are now back in Kona, Hawaii. Blessings to you all as you enjoy your family vacation! Thanks for letting me capture some of your day in Sodo. I hope you made fabulous memories together as you explored our beautiful city and State and go back refreshed and full of joy as you celebrated being together.

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!
