Joyful Navy Homecoming

 It’s been a long time since I blogged, but I couldn’t help but share the morning I was able to spend following around this military family and capturing their joy and excitement when they were able to see each other for the first time after a long deployment.  I wouldn’t have missed it for the world!

Enjoying Life

City girl meets country boy.  Bryce and Heather went rock climbing on their first date, they are adventurous and love all things outdoors.  They are just at the beginning of their lives together and I’m certain they’ll enjoy every minute.  You can tell how much he loves her, just by the way he’s looking at her.

Right now I haven’t been blogging much because I’m in the process of revamping my entire website and blog.  I haven’t even blogged the rest of Heather and Bryce’s pictures yet and I’m so excited about them!  It was my first full session on medium format film only, no digital.  I still have lots of images to share, so check out my facebook HERE to see some of my most recent favorites, including a few more of these two. 😉


it’s his birthday



My sweet little Carter boy turned three today, how did that happen?  He’s becoming such a big boy, and oh so independent.  He’s always telling me that he’s being a “useful boy” when he’s doing things like singing to Owen to make him happy, and making sure he’s washing his hands after he goes potty.  He loves to drive me crazy by constantly changing into “running clothes” a.k.a pajamas, and always hiding things from me.  Boy oh boy do I have stories about this little spit-fire.  Then just a moment later he’ll say “mommy, I just want you,” and he’ll be sitting in my lap, sucking his thumb, and twirling my hair.  Those moments are the ones I will treasure for the rest of his life.  If only he would stop growing up so fast.

Mia and Tucker at Home – Snohomish County Children’s Photographer














I was able to follow Mia and Tucker around while Laura fed baby Odin during his newborn shoot.  Mia showed me her doll house she got for Christmas, it was actually her mom’s when she was little.  She also showed me that she knows how to make her own bed.  Tucker is all boy and spent his time playing with his monster truck and wrestling with his dad and sister.  You can see more pictures of Tucker HERE, and Mia HERE and HERE.  If you missed Odin’s newborn pictures you can see them HERE.  I just love photographing them!

Country Boy – Utah County Portrait Photographer








I took these pictures of my younger brother Royce this past winter, a month or so after I had Owen.  It was a surprisingly warm winter day and we didn’t have to venture far.  This field is right near my parent’s house.  We were out just long enough to enjoy the sunshine and use up one roll of film.  I tried out a local lab this time around because it was cheap and quick.  I guess you get what you paid for because I ended up with some wonky colors, but I’m always glad to make mistakes so I can learn from them, and I still love these pictures!  I might even re-scan them someday, only time will tell…
