Letting Go and Going Forward

Letting Go and Going Forward

Our lives are defined by a series of moments. A flip book of little snapshots that make up a whole life. Blink and the years fly by. That's why I became a photographer. To define those moments in the flipbook of people's lives. All my life, I've wanted to tell stories. Stories have shaped me into...

July + August — PNW Summer

July + August — PNW Summer

I feel like this summer just flew past us. Maybe it's because we skipped fall and with the snow (snow!) last weekend, I feel like I should be getting ready for Christmas instead of Halloween. Ahhh! July and August were good. July was super super busy, and I helped organize a huge event for my...

May + June – Springtime Adventures

It's been a while, yeah? I'm at a point where I'm not sure if I'll ever catch up on blogging, and whether this whole blog thing is even worth it? I know I like blogs more than social media, but everything is on IG and FB now. Some of these photos were there too, but I love being able to look back...

Jessi & Tim’s Mazama Ranch House Wedding

Jessi sent me an email a couple months before their wedding, and told me that Natalie and Sam had sent me to them. Just from Jessi's first emails, I knew that I was going to adore her and Tim. And then, we got a chance to meet up in Seattle and chatted about all different things, but especially...

March + April Recap Post

March + April Recap Post

Can you believe it's May already? It's amazing the difference just two months can make. When I switched to doing these every other month, I realized there is a bit of wonder in looking back more than 60 days to see how things change so much in such a short time. And spring is such a huge example...

Holly + Justin’s Mt Spokane Elopement

Holly + Justin’s Mt Spokane Elopement

In the early emails that Holly sent me, she told me all about how they wanted to get married up at Vista House on Mt. Spokane. She told me that they wanted a small wedding, not quite an elopement, but only their families there. And what she told me resonated so much, because they knew what they...
