A rainy Friday night seems like a good time to grab a cup of hot tea and share a beautiful late summer Senior Portrait Gallery. Especially when it is these gorgeous twins in front of my lens. I had so much fun with these two wandering about Tacoma. Love their style, their smiles and well.........just EVERYTHING about them! I even got Mom to join in on the fun that evening - I love when that happens! Graduation is just around the corner - I can't wait to see what the future holds for these two. Thank you for sharing this special time with me ladies and good luck to you both!
Here we go.....Another share of a beautiful 2017 senior graduate that I was so lucky to have in front of my lens! I went all through school with Sophie's pretty Momma, Laurie! So many great childhood memories. I just love how Facebook opens the doors for us to reconnect. Sophie is the sweetest young lady with just the right amount of spunky attitude. I just loved that about her! I can't wait to see what the future holds for this beauty!
So the holidays have come and gone. The decorations put away for another year. No better time than now to start sharing some of the beautiful seniors that I was lucky to have in front of my lens last year. Starting out with the fun, silly, energetic, and oh so sweet Alex! I worked with her Momma, Shelly many (too many to say) years ago. So fun to go meet her beautiful daughter.
So blessed at Thanksgiving to have our table and home filled with family. I was so happy to finally meet my nephew's beautiful wife. They are expecting baby #1 in March, so of course we had to sneak out for a bit between the raindrops and capture of few special portraits. Love you both and wishing you much happiness with your new little family.
Did I say I LOVE shooting in downtown Tacoma? Brooke wanted something a little different than a grassy field and although I am country at heart, I definitely love a little bit of the city too! Lots of colors and patterns plus a fun senior in front of my lens equals a happy photographer!
I LOVE shooting in downtown Tacoma and Myah proved to me that the color and light on a rainy day is just as beautiful as on a sunny summer evening! I am in love with this image!
Oh those CURLS! Those gorgeous EYES! And that beautiful SMILE! I am having so much fun working my way through this session this evening.......More to come soon!
I first met Lane when my Emily tried out for the same junior high cheer team as Lane. I immediately fell in love with her! Anyone who has met her would know exactly why. When Lane first posted that she was expecting I couldn't wait to ask her if she would share that beautiful baby bump in front of my lens. I have little experience with maternity portraits, so I was so grateful when Lane said yes to my request, as well as the patience both her and Kolby gave me while I tried out this pose and that pose. CONGRATULATIONS to you both - you will be the most wonderful parents!
I had so much fun hanging out with this handsome young man. We ended the session with the rain pouring down on us and a happy reminder from Weston that he was headed out to Hawaii in the morning! Enjoy that tropical sunshine for all of us back here in the Pacific NW!
A few raindrops, wet ground and looming dark clouds didn't put a damper on this delightful girls fun! The rain held off just long enough for us to get through her session. Thanks for coming out and playing in the rain, Katie!
Well.......the rain didn't keep this little sweetheart away from my lens. We made it through her session with just a few raindrops and a whole lot of smiles! Thank you Alana for sharing your beautiful daughter with me - pure happiness for my soul!
Okay......so the evening light was.....AMAZING! The setting.....BEAUTIFUL! The senior in front of my lens.....GORGEOUS! Taylor you rocked it tonight! Thank you for sharing that million dollar smile with me (Or 4k smile as your Momma says).....definitely worth every penny!
I love it when my Seniors BFF's tag along during their senior portrait session. Kylien and Hailey have been friends for most of their lifetime. I guarantee you that there is much silliness, secrets and laughs between these two beautiful young ladies!
Everyone loves a brown-eyed girl and WOW am I in love with this sneak peek. I had so much fun chasing the light around Tacoma with Brooke and her mom, Nikki. Thank you so much for sharing this special senior time with me.
What's better than one senior in front of your lens on a beautiful Saturday evening? TWO! TWINS! Two sets of pretty blue eyes and two heads of golden blonde locks in front of me. Twice as much fun and twice as much gorgeousness! Happy dance......Thank you two beauties for sharing your afternoon with me!
A little sneak peek at my morning. A little playtime with the most ADORABLE Mommy and Daddy to be! I can't wait to meet baby Kolton! I LOVE having this couple in front of my lens - thank you!
Grace's mom was my very best friend back in Junior High. I hadn't seen Patty for over 30 years - how is that even possible? So when she contacted me to do Grace's senior portraits I couldn't have been any more excited. I took a little drive out to the Harbor to chase that beautiful soft evening light with an absolutely STUNNING senior in front of my lens! LOVE this!
What a beautiful afternoon for portraits yesterday and I couldn't ask for better smiles! Kylien, you and Bruiser are ADORABLE!
Had a great weekend out with this little sweetheart - can't wait to get to the rest of her session! If you have never visited hello, cupcake in Tacoma, put it on your bucket list - best cupcakes EVER!
….while I sorted, packed, moved, unpacked and sorted again. WOW, did that take more time and energy than I had expected, but I’m happy to announce that we are close to being situated in our new home. And I’m excited to start spending time in my favorite place, behind the lens!

Okay, a whole lot of cuteness! Quentin - you are ADORABLE! You were having a rough morning that day, but you still manged to share a few smiles with us - happy photographer!
