I photographed Celia a couple summers ago and this beautiful session never made it up on the blog. This session reminds me so much of the personal branding photo shoots that I’ve been doing these days. Creating these beautiful portraits of Celia through the Pioneer Square area worked great for her senior photos, and work […]

Sometimes it’s fun to changes things up a bit and photograph some professional headshots. Last summer I got the amazing Kaycee Parker of Parker Events NW in front of my lens and we had a blast running around downtown Edmonds.  Thanks Kaycee for having such an awesome smile!

It’s amazing how fast a year passes, and also just how much can happen in a year. The first photo below of my precocious 2.5 year old son Lincoln holding on to my abundantly pregnant belly was taken exactly a year ago today. A day where I knew I would be having my daughter any […]

The wedding industry is fun for many reasons, but one of my favorite is the community of vendors. Everyone in the Seattle wedding industry cares so much about their clients, their craft and their community, including the fabulous Eleanor of Bash and Bloom.Eleanor makes beautiful florals, trying to stay local and always her arrangements look […]

Dear Lincoln, It’s amazing what can happen in one year. I remember this day, one year ago, so vividly. After a long labor, and me past my exhaustion point, I remember you being placed on my chest all new and in shock after going through labor yourself, you showed me how strong of a boy […]

It’s a lot easier to stay on top of photographing Linc than it seems for me to stay on top of blogging about it :0)It is amazing the things that fall by the way side, when you got a kid wanting to play peek a boo… sorry about that! Linc has grown so much, it […]

I met Lindsey a couple weeks back at my house warming party. She is good friends of my awesome roommate Karine, and we chatted up  a bit during the party. A couple of weeks later, I  get a call from Lindsey. Apparently she went looking on the internet for a good photographer for some updated […]

The¬† other weekend, Karine and I hit the streets of Captial Hill to take some photos. We roamed around the backstreets by Broadway laughing and goofing off while taking some awesome photos. She is a natural in front of the camera! I love shooting on Capital Hill because the architecture there is so amazing, and […]
