An August Update

An August Update

The days turn in to weeks, and the weeks turn into years. Time seems to speed up as we age. My birthday is next week, and I'll be turning 28. Wait, what? I thought I'd take a few minutes to contemplate life, complete with a few of my favorite quotes about living life. Since I routinely get...

Vancouver, BC on Film

Vancouver, BC on Film

In April, I went up to Vancouver, BC for the Canada Photo Convention. This wasn't my first trip to Vancouver, nor will it be my last, and I was pretty busy with the conference, so I didn't get to see much around the city. Although I did escape one afternoon when my brain couldn't take any more...

Veronica & Tom’s Engagement Session

Veronica & Tom’s Engagement Session

Originally, we'd planned to do Veronica & Tom's engagement session up at Mt. Spokane, but when the weather was looking a little hit-or-miss, we decided to stick closer to home and shoot on the South Hill instead. And I have to say, it was fun to shoot so close to home! Veronica & Tom live...

Thoughts on Earthquakes, and a July Update

Thoughts on Earthquakes, and a July Update

It's Christmas in July. Also known as: this is what you get when I finally get film developed and then eventually get around to blogging it, plus some random other thoughts on life. 🙂 A few weeks ago, I got some film scans back, and I've been getting ready to blog some of those images over the...

Prague & Olomouc on Film

Prague & Olomouc on Film

I'm terrible at sending in my film, because I'm always frustrated to pay for the shipping. So I stock it up until I have a few rolls, which can take a while in the winter. I just got a batch of scans back from late last fall and early this spring! When I crossed the border from Germany into the...

Natalie & Sam’s Seattle Engagement

I'm working hard to catch up on blogging! My wedding season starts this weekend, and I'm so excited for every wedding I've got this year. Back in April, I went over to Seattle to shoot Natalie & Sam's engagement session. Like I said in their preview post, the weather was a little crazy. But...

Tyrone Wells at The Bartlett

It's a little known fact that, back when I was in college, I dated a guy in a local band. I was also at that point in my obsession with photography that I felt like I needed to carry my camera everywhere and photograph everything. I have, in the years since, purged a lot of terrible photography...

Joel & Dan’s Seattle Wedding

Joel & Dan’s Seattle Wedding

Joel & Dan were married last August at Within Sodo, and ever since I drove home (with the windows down) at midnight after their wedding, I've been trying to find the words to describe their wedding. And months later, I don't feel like I'm any closer to doing these wonderful men justice. Joel...

Out of the Office

Out of the Office

This week, I'll be out of the office, visiting Vancouver, BC and Portland, OR. I'll be checking in on my email occasionally, and I'll be back next Monday. If you're in Vancouver or Portland, let's grab coffee! Or take some photos, because I'm so excited to visit a couple of my favorite PNW cities...

Spring is Here

Spring is Here

Today is the first day of spring and it's supposed to be 64 degrees! It's been a long, hard, winter. Not necessarily cold or snowy, but gray and dreary. Next winter, I'm planning to get away for a vacation to somewhere sunny and warm. The last couple weeks my brain has been a little scattered, so...
