Kicking off senior season with Dom, Hanford High class of 2025! When I was a high school teacher, I mostly taught freshmen and sophomores, and every so often some of them would come back and visit me during their senior year.  It was always the best shock to see the transformation that happens in just […]

It’s 2003, and my high school physics lab partner and I are trying to keep up in class, and also discussing our latest crushes.  Fast forward 21 years (!?!?), and I’m photographing her wedding! Morgen and Kieth tied the knot in a beautiful backyard ceremony with Badger Mountain as a backdrop.  They got engaged under […]

You guys, this spring has just been wild.  Our spring warm-up was SLOW, and we had so much wind and rain, and because of all that we had to reschedule this session FOUR TIMES!  I SO appreciate my client’s flexibility!  I just can’t control the weather, and juggling sessions around it can be so stressful! […]

I just love this family!   My good friend, and fellow photographer, Cherika, was hired this year by Adeline’s Peonies to photograph their garden party, and she also got exclusive access to their new farm, Lucy Farm, in Zillah, Washington.  None of the peonies there were harvested this year, so it was acres and acres of […]

I wasn’t sure if I should blog this, because mini sessions just don’t come with very many photos, and I didn’t want to share the entire gallery, but it’s my blog and I can do what I want, and I definitely wanted to share some of this one this one with all of you! It’s […]

When you’re on location in the Tri-Cities, sometimes you just never know what will come by… I had the pleasure this spring of photographing my friend (from all the way back to middle school!) Allison, her husband, Nick, and their daughter Leona as they are expecting the arrival of a baby sister later in May!  […]

Miranda and Joel got married in the cutest little church in Basin City, Washington on a gorgeous spring day.  Surrounded by their families and close friends, Miranda and Joel said “I do” at the Messiah Lutheran Church.  Miranda’s grandma, Rosann created the beautiful floral arrangements and stunning bridal bouquet that seemed like it was picked […]

I think I could tell before we even started, that this family was going to be a fun one!  We started the session with a little huddle about what to expect, and what they are expecting of me, and it felt like chatting with friends!  Not only did these guys dress in the perfect spring […]

And we’re back!  With my first session of 2024, and this was so dreamy!   As we’ve been seeing the past few weeks, early spring weather can really do ANYTHING.  One minute it’s sunny and delightful, the next minute a rain cloud rolls through and soaks everything!  This was certainly true on this early spring day, […]

It seems fitting that my last blog of 2023 is all about new beginnings and fresh starts. My client Diane reached out to me about some fresh family photos while her adult kids were in town to document their new chapter after some tough changes in their lives.   It’s easy to remember to get […]
