Dan the Navy Man

Well, it’s May, and the weather has finally given us some days to play! Dan and I have been trying to find a dry-ish day to do his senior photo session, and we finally did it!! It could not have been a more perfect day for photos. In fact, when we arrived at Dan’s choice of venue, there were 3 other groups already in session. Popular place…popular day.

Dan is graduating from Puyallup High School in a couple of weeks. He has enlisted in our nation’s great Navy and will be starting boot camp in July. Thank you for your patriotism!

I have known the Vitt family for a few years, now. They have graciously invited me to document a number of special events for them. I love this family! I am so blessed to know the Vitts  and to have had the time with Dan this weekend. He is an awesome and respectful young man. He will do great things!

Congratulations on your upcoming graduation, Dan. Be safe out there protecting our country. It is an honor to know you.

Cool Mustang, Logan!

Happy Christmas time, everyone! This is truly a blessed time of year when we prepare to celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

I am so happy to be blogging about my friend, Logan; we met up in the downtown area of Tacoma for an urban senior session. Such an awesome young man! We had a great time getting some photos of Logan and his very cool Mustang. The day was so cold, but Logan bucked up and toughed it out:) The results are superb! Logan is a great looking kid with tons of personality! He brought his family, too! Love these people!! Thanks, guys, for such a fun time! Can’t wait to get together again.

Congratulations to Logan on his upcoming graduation! You will go far in this life:)!!

Here is a small sample of what we got at our photo shoot:

Congratulations to Tyler and Breanne!

What an incredible weekend! Amidst the blowing wind and driving rain, God opened up a brief respite. Wow! One of our best weddings yet! Last Saturday was a glorious display of love and commitment for our couple. Breanne and Tyler, as you will see, are one of the most beautiful couples we have ever seen. They showed love and affection to each other through their wedding day, with no anxiety or irritation to be seen. These two love birds are a perfect couple. We had a great time with them and their entire family! Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Selland. Thank you for choosing us to be a part of your most special day. It was an honor and a privilege. Blessings to you:)

Thanks Joel!!

What a great day! This past Friday, I got to spend some quality time with my friend, Joel. I have known Joel for many years and I can hardly believe that he is a senior! Crazy, right? Well, Joel and his mom asked me to commemorate Joel’s senior year with a photo session. It was awesome! After a dumping of rain the night before, I woke up to blue sky, perfect for the downtown Tacoma morning rush. Joel met me at my favorite Starbucks, and off we went. He’s a great sport, and easy to work with:) Thanks Joel!! We spent about an hour walking around the Museum of Glass area, looking for some good places to shoot. Here is what we found. Enjoy:)!!

Elissa the Great!

Every so often I get the opportunity to take photos for my family. This weekend, Elissa (my niece) and I spent the morning together commemorating her senior year with a fun photo session. Elissa was most interested in an urban setting, so of course, I took her to the downtown area of Tacoma. Elissa is an amazing dancer and wanted to get a few photos with her toe shoes. I think we managed to get some great ones, and of course, all of my niece’s photos were spectacular 🙂

Thanks, Elisa, for asking me to celebrate this year with you. It was a pleasure and an honor and I love you:)!!

Lauren and Kaitlyn’s Senior Session

It’s Senior Photo time again! Congratulations to all of the soon to be 2018 high school graduates! Our calendar is filling up and my computer is working overtime, but that’s how I like it!!:) Woohoo seniors!! Love ’em!

Last week Kaitlyn and Lauren met me at the Pagoda on the Tacoma waterfront. This is one of my favorite spots senior photos. There are so many different backdrops offering such a great variety. These lovely ladies were awesome! They were naturals at posing, allowing me more time to shoot. Thanks, you guys!

It was a gorgeous day with clear skies (unusual this summer with the smoke that’s been lingering). I had a blast! And have been editing through the week. Here are a few of my favorites. It was hard to choose from so many great pics.

Congratulations Kaitlyn and Lauren. This will be an amazing senior year for you both! Enjoy everything RHS has for you this year. Here’s to your next great phase in life!

Jill and Brenden

Happy Labor Day Weekend everyone! Hope you are all home safe and sound on this Friday night.

Chris and I had the great pleasure of shooting a wedding last weekend. Jillian and Brenden were married in Steilacoom, WA in front of the beautiful Puget Sound on an old time bandstand with their family and friends all watching with joy in their eyes.

Jill tried very hard to stay out of sight of her soon to be husband, and was successful!! Woohoo!! This was not an easy task. Brenden’s first look at Jill was as she was being escorted by her father down the grassy isle. His smile was golden. She was breathtaking. It was a great event, one we will not soon forget.

I hope you enjoy some of the photo selections I chose for their blog. Congratulations, you guys! I hope Chicago treats you well:)

Molly’s Bridal Shower

It was a gorgeous day for a tea party.

This past Saturday, my soon to be daughter-in-law, Molly, attended her bridal shower on Lake Samish in Bellingham, WA. Given to her by her besties, Kelsey and McKena, it was a gala event. Beautiful job, ladies!!

There was a spread of scented sweet peas to decorate the lovely tea cup laden table, chocolate covered strawberries, the best cucumber sandwiches I have ever had, a wonderful broccoli salad, lemon bars, champagne, and of course, tea.

Molly was lavished with beautiful and thoughtful gifts. We played fun bridal shower games (with prizes of course). We enjoyed the sun and each others company.

Congratulations, Molly! I can’t wait to see you married to my son!:) He is a lucky man.

Here are a few photos from this grand gathering. Enjoy
