Samantha reached out last spring about senior portraits for her son, Hayden.  When she mentioned that he’s in the Firefighting program at Tri-Tech, and would love to incorporate his gear, and/or a fire station, I got excited.  This sounded epic! I had an idea about which fire station would have the best light, so I […]

One of the best feelings in this biz is when clients come back for more photos.  I first met Susan and Matt, and little Isla back in 2021, for a maternity session when they were expecting.  Later that summer, I got to do an in-home lifestyle newborn session with them and meet sweet little baby […]

Meet the Wears! As much fun as it is to reconnect with people I knew in high school, it’s also pretty amazing to meet new people too!  Chloé and her family came out from Seattle to visit her folks here in Richland, where she grew up.  Turns out we had lots of similar interests in […]

You might recognize Misty from my very first blog ever!  I photographed her and her family back in January when they were expecting baby Everly.   Misty’s husband, Tony, and his brother, Drew are combining forces to start a home-building business here in the Tri-Cities, called Relentless Custom Homes.  Check them out if you are […]

These are some more friends I have known forever and more recently connected with again!  Kitty and I have known each other since childhood!  We both grew up out in the country, out by Red Mountain, which at the time was pretty out there and isolated (not anymore!  West Richland has grown so much!).  We […]

Meet Nolan!   Nolan is the president of Wright Engineering.  Nolan came to see me for some updated head shots for his website and social media. I’ve had the privilege of photographing Nolan and his family a few times, and it was nice to just focus on him and get to know his business a bit […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
