Hello, December

Hello, December

I sat down to write this yesterday morning, but it never happened. So I'm up early today, watching the snow fall outside my office window, and reflecting on the fact that it's December. Whoa. November was a crazy whirlwind. November is usually a whirlwind - finishing up wedding season, squeezing...

Year Three — Running a Business

Year Three — Running a Business

I wanted to write a sweet little post about what I've learned in three years of doing this full time. But then I realized, I don't know how it's been three years! It feels like it was just a year ago I was waking up on the first day I didn't have a day job and working in my jammies in the living...

It’s October

It’s October

Summer comes in and out of my life like a whirlwind. I can never fit in all the things I have to do and all the things I want to do, but I always end summer feeling like I've been through a tornado. Figuratively speaking, since Spokane doesn't have tornadoes. Thankfully. It's been a while since...

Behind the Scenes as a Wedding Photographer

Happy Friday! Ever wonder what it's like behind the scenes at a wedding or engagement session with me? The majority of the time, I shoot alone, so there's no one around to take photos of me making faces and doing whatever it takes to get a shot. But sometimes I have a second shooter, or I drag my...

Maple Pass Loop // North Cascades

Maple Pass Loop. I didn't really plan to go hiking the day after Natalie & Sam's wedding. But when I asked them at the rehearsal dinner about a couple good Methow Valley hiking spots, they both recommended the Maple Pass Loop. So much so, that they told me H shouldn't do the hike on Saturday,...

Changes: Busy Season Edition

When you grow up in the high elevation desert (I mean...), you learn that there is truth is the saying, "when it rains, it pours". I remember as a child, running between school and my mom's office, feeling the wind whip my hair, and without warning, the skies just opening up. So much rain you...

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

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...
