My Friends are Models! // Branding Session

As a full camera card rests in the hardworking Canon sitting on my passenger seat, I'm discovering new work to drool over. . .

Reunion Bake Brew Bite // Branding Session

I AM NEW TO KIRKLAND. I AM STILL FINDING MY SPOTS, YA KNOW? 

WHEN YOU FIND A GEM, AND IF YOU HAVE A HEART, YOU CAN'T HELP BUT WANT TO SHARE. 

PART I OF 2 PHOTOSHOOTS I JUST DID FOR REUNION TO SHOWCASE WHAT A KNOCKOUT COMBO THEIR QUALITY + SERVICE IS.

Enjoy. . . in person, preferably!

Tiny Man Snuggles // Fresh 48/Newborn Mini Session

I arose at my usual 7 am. Without a shred of dread. This has to be the best of signs, no? I couldn't dream of doing anything else.

I swear there is also some ancient magic hidden in the mornings we wake up to sunshine and not downpour in Seattle. I arise believing I can do anything AND that I will bump into Ryan Gosling while ordering a cappuccino. It’s nearly scientific.

Beach Picnic for Two // Mama and Me

We headed out from their West Seattle digs to the Trader Joes to pick up picnic fixings. Then it was off to Lincoln Park for a girls lunch + casual photo session. 

PSA: You can hire me, but if you want to befriend me and eat with me and get beautiful images along the way I will NOT protest.

Mobile Modeling Session // Lifestyle

Lovely humans, there are so many moments when you're gonna be in your flow and it will be awesome and you'll feel like you could lift a bus over your head! And then some days you'll feel like the bus dropped on top of you. Those are the moments where you realize that you cannot stay under the bus. Because 1) there is no chocolate under the bus :( and 2) the world is waiting on you.

Baby H is 2 Weeks Old! // Newborn Session

I was there to document a milestone in growth, but I think I ended up also validating what natural parents these two had so eagerly been waiting to become. 

Cheers to many, many more weeks of change and puppy kisses, little love!
