I was so glad to do this shoot at Discovery Park in Seattle and meet this happy newlywed couple. Their October wedding is right around the corner and I'm really excited to capture this beautiful event for them. Hannah + Kilian's love and belonging to eachother shines bright in these photos!
Hannah + Kilian's Wedding
Megan + Patrick's Engagement
I had the pleasure of taking engagement photos for my sister Megan and her fiancé Patrick! This was such a fun shoot and was happy to have assistance from the rest of my family. Even in the rain these two shined, I'm so excited for them and can't wait for their summer wedding!
Megan + Patrick's Wedding
My sisters wedding!! The first wedding I've done photography at, and it was a great experience. There was so much love in the air on this night and it was a beautiful day full of family and togetherness, I am so happy for these two. They planned a surprise itinerary with a party bus and dinner at Pike Place Market. This was such a unique wedding with an intimate backyard reception. Congratulations to my sister and new brother in law!
Matthew + Madeline
I am so glad that we took a few minutes for photos at Greenlake! We got to soak up some of the last summer sunshine in the PNW. These two cuties are making it work long distance from Texas to Seattle and went to UW together. I'm so excited to see these two bring each other happiness!

ILIA Soiree at Hawthorn Salon
I really got to take my time and use some creativity on this shoot I've been wanting to do at the Valley Nursery green house in Poulsbo. Sometimes you don't have to go far to find some awesome locations! I so appreciate Brittany taking some time to model for me and explore Poulsbo a bit. I tried a bit of experimenting with foreground blur and string light bokeh.
Kyle Hammer Senior Portraits
This was my first Senior Portrait Session at one of my favorite places, Battlepoint Park. Even though the rain started pouring down during our shoot, the trees and gazebo provided great coverage an awesome background. Thanks to this BHS senior, Kyle for rocking this portrait shoot.
This was such a fun shoot to do with my talented friend Kelli, who is an expert on hand lettering and crafts of all kinds. Check out her work on Instagram @joesgraingirl or on her Etsy page. I was thrilled to do this beachy spring shoot with her and her two boys, Joah and Bro. Thanks Collins!
I have been a volunteer photographer for PAWS of Bainbridge Island and North Kitsap since 2012. It's really fun going to the events they host such as Wagfest, Spotlight Auction events and fundraisers. I was so happy to have my photo featured on the front of the PAWS calendar in 2013.

Baylee + Weston
This talented photographer has helped me to be a better photographer myself and create better results. My boyfriend, Nick and I had a a ton of fun doing a couples photoshoot swap. We headed out to the Tacoma area to a beautiful park called Fort Steilacoom. Check out her work on her website https://www.befreephoto.com/about-meor on Instagram @bayleemariephoto
This photo session was such a great transition into fall. Battlepoint park has been a favorite place of mine since childhood and it was really fun to get to do a shoot here. The Wilson Family said "wow that was actually a lot of fun" which really warms my heart to have made these clients feel comfortable and happy. Photo sessions should always be a fun time and not a time of feeling over posed and unnatural. Thanks Wilson Family!
I love taking a photojournalistic approach to photo sessions so that not all of the photos are "posed" and smiling. Organic moments between loved ones are so much more interesting and authentic than overly posed shots. I really enjoy exploring new locations and working with families and kids who are actually having fun! Thanks Leanderson family!
I met with my long time friend Marcella in Sequim for the Lavender Festival. I had such a fun time with her and her family. I'm excited to have created photos for the Wergins to cherish while Marcella goes back to work for the Navy in San Diego. Thanks Wergins!
Thanks to Stefanie Segale, Karen Hinton and this cutie Olivia Segale for making this session happen. We all had a really fun day at the park, Olivia was a natural!
This beautiful family of five was so easy going and photogenic. We were so lucky to get a bit of good weather before the rain and storm clouds rolled in at The Indianola Pier. It was such a pleasure to do this photo shoot with the Wright's!
Lyssa Danehy DeHart
This super inspirational writer located right here on Bainbridge Island was such a blast to work with. We explored the Lynwood Center are and found some really neat backdrops including the beach, her yard, and a variety of interesting buildings. This blue eyed beauty had such gorgeous hair and a bright smile! Listening to her read excerpts from her book was so intriguing. Go grab a copy of her self help book Storyjacking: Change Your Inner Dialogue, Transform Your Life
Did such a fun mini session with the Tyler Family at Fay Bainbridge. This was a really versatile location and perfect for this family session. I love the end result of these relaxed and simply posed photos on the beach. Thanks Tylers, it was a pleasure!
