If it isn't already clear, the boss is a lady.
I'm pretty sure this was a joke about every kids' favorite planet in the solar system. #uranus
A few times a year I convince my kids to take a break from thier beloved 'pajama days' and adventure with me. Today was a pretty great day.
Hey you guys don’t forget that photo shoots are for grandpas too ❤️ Such a thoughtful birthday gift to this guy (surrounded by his 3 grown sons) organized by his daughter-in-law. I am pretty sure I have a lot I could learn from this man! So wonderful to see him be celebrated by his loved ones on a sunny winter day at the park.
Today was incredible 💕💕 forever inhome sessions for newborns💕💕

you need to! I have no words by her graciousness and see her and Austin’s love for their new little made my heart burst
I so wish I had taken breastfeeding pictures when I was at that stage in my kiddos lives. I think it’s the one thing I would go back and capture if I could. Is there something you wished you had captured?
In what will feel like a blink she won’t have to kneel down to be eye to eye with her big girl! Watching families grow over the years is so darn bitter sweet. 🥰
It’s always fun to kick the kids out of the photo and see what faces we can get their parents to make! ❤️❤️🥰😍🤩
Who else is ready for sunny days and outdoor wine tasting adventures? This particular one ended in us finding a random tractor.

Telling my clients stories is such an incredible honor 😍
This is my best friend & her adorable girls.
Long story short...
We met at a moms group...
At a park play date.
In the rain.
And nobody else showed up.
Our kids played in the rain.
And we’ve been friends since.
She is my person. ***
Who’s your person? Your best girl who has seen you at your worst and inspires you to be at your best? ***
The girlfriend who can come over unannounced and you don’t feel the need to clean up or get out of pjs?
The friend who helps us get out of the trenches and help us laugh at ourselves. ***
The friend that just gets us.
I’ve decided to take weekends off from posting on insta. This started as me forgetting to post last weekend and then seeing how I would feel not posting again this weekend. Social media is fantastic as a marketing tool, but there’s a distinct feeling of being chained to it: must post, must produce content, must comment back right away, must beat the algorithm. And keeping up with that 365 days a year is just not something I can do right now. In the constant struggle to gain visibility, there’s little room for boundaries, but you have to set them somewhere. So when you don’t see new posts from me on the weekends, now you’ll know why.
Self love is a curious thing....especially for women. ESPECIALLY for mothers.
This is a photo of me, in a bathing suit, on a beach in the Bahamas, acting all confident with my curvy self.
But I assure you, it's a journey for sure. I have ALL the insecurities about all the things you do. Promise.
My body has changed... it grew three humans and when you are 5'2, let me tell you, that takes a toll on you. ;) I am teeny, but like I said, curvy. And curvy comes with all kinds self judgement. Just saying. But every day I try to my best to love my body and not look down on my imperfections.
I try to show up here on the gram regularly because I want to practice what I preach. I take photos of all my mothers alone at every shoot, even if they are nervous about it. Why? Because I believe that our children need to see US. I believe our little girls, they are listening and watching and they need to see us be confident in our curves and our imperfections. I believe that women are under appreciated and they should be celebrated as they are and for the goddesses they are.
So here I am, trying to love myself a little more each day and to be thankful for this body that has taken me so very far. .

I am so sad to hear that The Capitol Campus Conservatory is scheduled for demolition. I had high hopes that someday it would be restored to another green house. Such a beautiful piece of Olympia’s history.
A preview from yesterday’s engagement session. This couple was so awesome, even the rain and wind didn’t stop us 💪🏻.. excited to capture their wedding this year. #natalietkachukphotography
