Gable | Nisqually Wildlife Refuge Family Session

Gable | Nisqually Wildlife Refuge Family Session

Warning: This post contains photos of possibly THE CUTEST FALL FAMILY YOU’VE EVER SEEN. Proceed at your own risk. :) I loved having this family in front of my camera and I only wish that we had had a whole hour together instead of just 30 minutes!

Shull | Titlow Beach Park Family Session

Shull | Titlow Beach Park Family Session

I was so excited when Jessica contacted me for a family session a couple years ago back in Washington! She wanted a spot that was very “fall” with lots of color but something that was also easily accessible since they had a little baby. I recommended Titlow Park in Tacoma, and I’m so glad we went with this location.

2018 Family Photos

Wow, this year has just flown by, hasn’t it?? I realize I haven’t blogged in months, and I’m sorry about that! It’s been quite a busy year around here. I’m going to try and use these next few winter months to catch up on my blogging and share all the amazing Alaska sessions I’ve done! But for today I’m going to share our own family pictures from 2018.

I'm really excited about my photography bucket list this year! There are so many awesome places I’d love to visit and photograph in Alaska. :)

Ramona | Vashon Island First Birthday Party

Ramona | Vashon Island First Birthday Party

Last summer I got to photograph little Ramona's first birthday party! Her parents threw her an adorable unicorn-themed get-together at their home on Vashon Island, right outside of Seattle, Washington.

Alexander | Downtown Tacoma Senior Session

Alexander | Downtown Tacoma Senior Session

Last fall I met Alexander at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington for his high school senior session. We scheduled his session right before sunset (which is my FAVORITE time of the day because the light is seriously ah-mazing!), and everything worked together perfectly to create this super cool senior vibe

Marosfalvy | Washington Coast Family Session

Marosfalvy | Washington Coast Family Session

You might remember the adorable Marosfalvy family from their 2016 lifestyle newborn family session when baby Helene was born. This past summer they wanted to do a session on the Washington Coast, so we all traveled to Pacific Beach, WA (only a few hours from Olympia) for a family session on the beach!

This past October Kaitlin & John had a super fun engagement session at Titlow Beach Park in Tacoma, Washington. I was so excited when Kaitlin contacted me for their session!

I was super excited when the Koehler family asked if I'd be interested in doing an adventure family session with them at Franklin Falls last summer, and of course I said yes!

Keck | Seattle In-Home Newborn Session

Keck | Seattle In-Home Newborn Session

You might remember the adorable Keck family from the Pike Place Market session we did in December of 2016 (back when there were only three of them!). This past summer I met with them again at their home in Seattle, Washington for a lifestyle newborn session because little Michael had become the big brother of TWINS!
