I have been lucky enough to photograph Brandon three times now!  Once, with the rest of his family in Fall 2020, then last fall for his senior portraits in downtown Kennewick.  A few weeks ago, Brandon received his LDS mission call to Bentonville Arkansas, speaking Marshallese. I definitely had to Google this, but it turns […]

We went out of town to visit family over the fourth of July weekend. We got to spend some quality time with my dad and step-mom in Anacortes, and also with my husband’s parents in Marysville.  We also got to see my husband’s sister and her family, who live nearby in Lake Stevens!  We hadn’t […]

Let me tell you the backstory here… Cherika is a long-time friend and fellow photographer.  We met because we are both students of Amy and Jordan’s Shooting and Editing course!  We’ve been swapping photos for years, and she and her family moved to Yakima last year, so I don’t get to see them as much […]

I’m so excited to share this family maternity session with you today!  Katherine scored my Black Friday deal last November and we scheduled a session for this spring.  Of course, she wasn’t pregnant when she booked this with me, so I had no idea she was expecting until she showed up! She was interested in […]

Wow, this was a humbling experience!  This was an extended family session that included FOUR generations!  My friend Meg bought a gift certificate from me last Christmas to give to her mom, Lori, so she could get pictures with all her kids and grandkids. They also chose to include Lori’s Father-in-Law.  And oh my goodness, […]

Meet Ann Autrey!   Ann is the face behind all the amazing plants at Tapteal Native Plants, located in West Richland, WA! Need some information about local native plants?  How about a consultation for what will grow best in your space? Want to turn your space into a Heritage Garden? Maybe you’d like to try growing […]

Ahhh this family!  I have known Eric since our cross country running days at Hanford High in Richland, Washington.  Although we weren’t super close friends, somehow we kept in touch enough over the years (Thanks, facebook!).  So when he was looking to move back to Richland, and get a teaching job, I told him about […]

Things I remember about the 4th grade at Sacajawea Elementary:  A research report about the Everglades, and the animals I made out of Sculpey for the presentation, a travel agency project in which I had to cold-call a real travel agent in Alabama to ask for some travel brochures about the state (and the anxiety […]

It’s so amazing, as a photographer, to get to capture more than one of your life milestones.   Megan and Ian reached out to me for the first time for photos back in December of 2020, when Megan was pregnant with little Maddi.  We had an awesome, but chilly maternity session near the Yakima River, […]

So, we have had what seems like an unusually chilly spring, here in the Tri-Cities, WA. Remember the record-breaking snowfall we had in April? Yeah…. So scheduling this session was a bit of a juggle around the weather, but we finally landed on a beautiful, yet still slightly chilly evening at the Master Gardener’s Demonstration […]
