Jess | Class of 2014, Senior

It was great to see Jess again for his senior photos! He and I first met last year when I did a photo session for his band, Innocent Bystander! His band is still going strong, but he’s also keeping busy with all fun of his senior year at Thomas Jefferson High School and prepping for college! We had a fun session at Owen Beach, and a beautiful fall day for it! JP Photography (5).jpg

Ryan a Multitalented TJHS Senior! Federal Way

Meet Ryan! He’s a senior this year at Thomas Jefferson High School, and boy does he have a lot going for him! I first met Ryan last summer when I did a photo session for his band, Innocent Bystander. Ryan plays guitar in the band of four high school students. They play in venues all around the Tacoma area, and are really good!! Not only is Ryan a guitarist, he’s played varsity golf at his high school all four years! Ryan wanted to do his senior session at the Auburn Golf Course for its beautiful grounds and to incorporate his interests. We had a beautiful day for his session and I especially enjoyed riding the golf cart around from place to place! :) JP Photography (2).jpg

The 2012 Highlight Reel // Tacoma Photographer

Wow!!  2012 was a big year for JP Photography! I am so blessed and thankful to have such wonderful returning clients, new clients, and new friends! Thank you all for being a part of our year.

What a relief that the world didn’t end, and we can look forward to another fantastic year ahead! :) Here’s some big moments, milestones and some favorite times from 2012…

I kicked-off 2012 by celebrating this little man turning one!! It’s such a privilege following my littlest of clients through their first year, and this guy is just so adorable with his beautiful blue eyes he always makes my job easy! :)

A huge highlight for me this year was a special project for my JP Portfolio. This was a stylized session, Trash the Dress: Prom EditionThis was my baby for the summer, something I had planned and worked on for a long time before even shooting it. I am so happy that this was part of 2012 for me.

On a personal/half-business note.. my husband and I bought a house this summer!! I say it’s half business because, well…  you see those big beautiful windows? That means, it’s been the PERFECT home studio setting for natural-light newborn sessions! I even created a nursery in one of the bedrooms for a private place for moms to feed and snuggle baby during breaks.  Come check it out :)

I keep forgetting how exciting 2012 really was until I look back at all of these!

I had the opportunity to go down on the field at the Tacoma Rainiers Game to photograph my favorite non-profit, Peace Out, throw the first pitch!

Every year I go to the fair, and every year I am dying to do a session there! Well, 2012 was my year! I shot a very fun and colorful session at the fair during the golden hour of the setting sun. Photographer bliss!

This beautiful family was the icing on the cake! ..or should I say the jelly on the scone? lol, maybe I shouldn’t.

In September, I took a huge step with JP Photography, and a huge leap of faith. JP Photography went full-time! This opened many more doors for my business, including the opportunity to shoot weekday sessions, which can be very important in Newborn Photography.

I had the opportunity to photograph so many beautiful newborns since going full-time. For the sake of keeping my readers, here’s just one of those beautiful babes.

In 2012 I offered my first (likely annual) Holiday Mini Sessions for clients, and boy were these a hit!

This was a fun, fast-paced day with 10 back-to-back sessions!
