Little Miss Evelyn is 6 months old now! I’ve loved photographing her every 3 months and watching her grow! Her 6 Month Session was my favorite so far. It was just such a happy, sunny and fun day! Happy half birthday, little one! :)
It’s been so great getting to know this girl over the summer! Jackie is a Class of 2014 Senior at Renton High School. This girl can model! I can barely take credit for these shots! I have never worked with someone that didn’t need any directing on poses and getting natural shots in front of the camera. I pretty much just had to show up and she took care of the rest! …well, okay not exactly, but still, she ROCKED IT!
We did both a regular senior session with her everyday clothes and adorable bubbly self, and we included two cultural looks to honor her Samoan heritage. We also made a super fun video! I just loved this shoot. Enjoy!!
Guess what!!!! That should be easy to do if you read the title with all the exclamation points, but… I am so excited to debut our first Senior Feature Video!
Seniors, you can now include your own sweet video with your JP Senior Session!
First one up is Jackie, a 2014 Senior at Renton High School. Jackie wanted to include some of her family’s Samoan heritage in her session as well as some more casual shots in her everyday clothes. Turned out to be a beautiful session with a beautiful girl, check it out!
Visit the JP Senior Site or shoot me an email at email@example.com to get your session booked!

It’s baaaaack! One of my very favorite places to shoot at… The Puyallup Fair! Oh man, there’s so much photography goodness about the fair! It’s a great place to capture kiddos having a blast and being themselves, couples snuggling up all cute and cozy on the ferris wheel, and I love the all the bold colors everywhere for high school senior sessions!
My husband and I went this week and I was quickly reminded of everything I love about shooting there. Here’s a couple quick iphone shots of my husband and I “doing the Puyallup” this week, followed by some professional images from one of my favorite family sessions there last fall.
Tessa & Nick had a beautiful wedding! Tessa included so many thoughtful touches that she made herself and were very well done! I loved how their wedding was such a true celebration. They had such a fun group of guests and Nick & Tessa really seemed to cherish every moment of their first day together as husband and wife.
Tessa and I went to highschool together and it’s been so great to connect with her this year and to meet Nick! These two are so sweet together and are lots of fun to be around. I could say so much more about their awesome day, but since a picture is worth a thousand words I’ll let them do the talking. Without further adieu, here are some of my favorites from their day! More will be posted on the JP Facebook Page as well so be sure to stop by soon!
Congratulations you two! I’m so happy for you guys! Thank you so much for having me part of your big day!

I have been trying to figure out for a while now the best way to combine my passions for photography and helping others. I’ve donated plenty of sessions in the past, but aside from giving away free photos it doesn’t really feel like it helps anyone. Well, I am very excited to say that I have found a way to do this that seems to be my perfect fit for helping others through photography. Actually… I have found and started doing this in three totally different ways, but for now I am only going to tell you about one ;)
And here’s a really dorky action shot of me doing my thing :)
If you haven’t heard of A Family For Every Child, check them out! They are a non-profit serving Washington and Oregon. Their mission is to find loving adoptable homes for children waiting in foster care. They have volunteer opportunities nationwide which is a huge support in doing all the great work that they do.
Last week I had the opportunity to be a volunteer photographer with them! The Heart Gallery is their program that works with professional photographers to take photos of children that are waiting to be adopted. These photos will be used on website, fliers, and bios about them to show them in a positive light and illustrate a little glimpse into their personality.
I love to make these sessions into a fun activity and capture them being themselves. It was great to spend some time with David last week, learn about his interests and get some fun photos! Click here: to check out David’s bio including some photos from our session! David is a friendly and easy-going guy, we had a great time!
I’m so happy to have connected with A Family For Every Child and am excited for next time!
