Winter mornings. ❄️ Captured this classic Ford pickup with a vintage lens on my Sony A6000. It was a frigid morning after a fun night with friends during our now annual ski trip to Baker. The frost and dew created such a peaceful, quiet, and especially cold morning. ❄️ Shout-out to @fotobygmt for lending me his awesome lens! ❄️ Sony A6000 + Canon FD 28mm 2.8 lens #fordclassic #vintagecars #bestvintagelens #lookclassicfords

Raise your hand if you've ever been on a shoot and suddenly just kinda lose your groove, 🙋🏼🙋🏼🙋🏼 • I'll be the first to admit it AND chances are, damn near every photographer or creative has once found themselves with a blank slate, not sure what to do next. • That happened to me right here 🙈 Not every suggestion we give will work for every couple. Why? Because every couple and their dynamic is different! • I had these two seated in a way that just wasn't working. I could tell they weren't feeling it and I could see they just weren't comfortable. At all! • So what do we do in these moments? I can tell you what I do. First, I BREATHE. It's going to be OKAY I promise. 🙌🏼 And then 9/10 I say something like, "Ok scratch that. How do you guys sit on the couch with each other? Like, when you're at home and it's the end of the day, where do naturally you find yourselves?" • And then, they did this! They stood up, repositioned themselves, TJ leaned back and put his head in Heather's lap and let out the biggest sigh. To me that sigh meant, "Yup. This is the spot. I feel so good right here." And I think he even said that too! • And then, we moved on! With Heather and TJ feeling more comfy, I was able to capture them in a way that shows their true dynamic and not some way I think they might like to sit next to each other. WIN-WIN 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 • So! The next time you find yourself stuck, don't worry, it'll pass I promise. Take a step back, breathe, and ask your clients what feels good to them. 💙 • Chances are they'll take you straight to something that is more authentic than you could ever create and from there, you can actually tell their story in a way that feels real to them! • YAY for telling real stories of real people in real moments that really happen in their real lives. For realz! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 . . . #chelanweddingphotographer #lakechelanweddingphotographer #wenatcheeweddingphotographer #leavenworthweddingphotographer #seattlweddingphotographer #oregonweddingphotographer #portlandweddingphotographer #coloradoweddingphotographer #coloradoelopement #redwoodselopement #redwoodwedding #wildelopement #pnwelopement #coloradoweddingphotographer #wedseattle #heckyeahpresets

Editing through hundreds of photos to make the most of being sick today. Here's a shot of Buckskin Mtn from Saturday while I was hanging out in lower Copper Basin. #sickday #throwback #buckskinmtn #avalanchechute #copperbasin #snowshoeing #sunnyday #bluesky #clouds #mountainpeak #northcascades #glacierpeakwilderness #mountainlove #mountainlife #getoutside #outdoorlife
This is a bit more subtle than the sunsets I usually like to post, but I loved the balance between the soft, almost pastel clouds and the rugged mountains of the #NorthCascades of #Washington . This is Mount Larrabee, which until the 1950s was known as Red Mountain. Last night, it was a bit red because of the sunset, but during the summer, the summit is distinctly red because of the oxidized iron in its rock. #nature #sunset #pastel #mountains
Morning! ❄️ #whatscookingoodlookin
It seems to be the time of the year when everyone is posting their favorite images from the past year, so naturally (and for the 3rd year in a row) I'll hop on the bandwagon, as well. It's always fun to look back at my work from the past 12 months and reflect on the incredible places I've been lucky to visit, the people I've been luck to go on adventures with, and how my photography has grown, as well as where I still want to improve. To see all the photos, check out the link in my bio!
Yesterday was incredible. Less than a year ago, I wrote ‘ME NOW’ on the bottom of a whiteboard... and ‘ME inspiring millions’ on the top of the whiteboard. I didn’t have ANY CLUE how to do it. Literally, no clue. I remember that people used to ask me, ‘What’s your business plan?’... and my throat would tighten. I didn’t know how to say, ‘Just follow my heart and do good things’, without feeling like I was irresponsible. One of the things I wrote on that whiteboard was, ‘be in Backpacker magazine.’ At the time, I didn’t even know anybody at Backpacker... but low and behold, my good friend Cassie told me about a Seattle Trail Scout opportunity, which I applied for. I started an online hiking group simultaneously. The scout position with Backpacker morphed into gear testing (yaaaayyyyy!). I met hikers that I wouldn’t have otherwise met, because they saw me in Backpacker. One of those hikers, requested a violin gram for her student... which morphed into me giving away a violin for Christmas to a boy in need... which somehow turned into me having my photographs taken yesterday for Backpacker wearing a gown and trail runners in front of a waterfall with @stephen_matera , a ridiculously talented artist of the lens 📷 Two years ago, I wasn’t grateful for much. I was miserable and stuck. It was a split second of almost losing my life, which made me grateful for the one thing that is the foundation of everything: my beating heart. You have to start there, or nothing else matters. ❤️❤️ after that, anything is possible. I wrote a poem yesterday: My heart beats itself Each pulse Each steady thump Like the sound of a mason Laying bricks of gold The foundation of everything The path to who I am The bellows of my lungs Breathing life Into the golden fire Each whoosh of air A gift Over and over And over again So many times that I sometimes forget That each beat each breath Is the gift of everything. 📷 @theres.no.aaron.space
@elizabeth_dee9 shows off her fresh modeling skills in preparation for the North Cascades National Park 50th year anniversary!! The North Cascades National Park is beyond awesome. It is unrivaled in flora and fauna, yet is one of the least visited parks in the US. The mountains aren’t too bad either.

Lots of new things to come from @yetti_prints in 2018, including my new logo! Trying to change things up, keeping it fresh and original for the coming year. I came to realize using my old skool Sasquatch design probably wasn’t the best logo choice when everybody and their mama seems to copying the same bigfoot image. I’ll still be using that classic image in my designs, but just not as my main logo anymore. #screenprinting #mazamawa #northcascades
Studio Vibes. #followthatyeti #mazamawa
#tbt - I’ve really been slacking on my IG posts this past month… it all started right before X-mas when I lost my phone on a glorious powder day in the North Cascades. At first it just seemed like good timing to disconnect for a bit, and enjoy the holidays with my friends. As time went by, I was really enjoying the break from Social media and I just didn’t feel motivated to participate. All good things come to an end eventually, and now I’m back to work getting focused on new things to come in 2018. I noticed I lost a few followers while I was gone, but that’s no big deal. Thanks to all of you who still like my page, I appreciate your support! #yetiprints #mazamawa #northcascades
This is the beginning of your day, Life is more intricate than it seems. Always be yourself along the way, Living through the spirit of your dreams. #thecranberries #DoloresORiordan
The mountains are where I go to seek balance. I’ve never been disappointed
Feeling inspired on Inspiration Glacier. #northcascades
Mt. Baker was out strong this weekend. I'm grateful I was able to enjoy the outdoors and the weekend with a group of diverse, strong, and amazing women. Today we remember Dr. Martin Luther King and all the other activists who worked/work tirelessly to help move our society to a more equal and just place. THANK YOU. #mtbaker #ski #snow #boarding #mtbakerskiresort #wow #adventure #epic #optoutside #bluebird #peak #cascades #pnw #pnwlife #pnwonderland #pnwlife #wintersports #northcascades #reiproject
This picture doesn't come close to capturing the beauty of this sunset. What a privilege it was to watch it unfold! #northcascades #earnyourturns
"Bad Blood in the Baker Backcountry" story just hit shelves. Check out the rad regional publication @ascentbackcountry to read more about the backcountry skiing map that spurred on some aggro-localism, as well as a conversation on who has the right to the terrain. Photos by the talented @evanskoczenski. Link in the profile!
7/29/17 Day 2-summit reached surrounded by an ocean of peaks. A bit tense being secured with snow anchors on exposed ridge, a bit exhausted as this only half way done. Elated for a memorable accomplishment which was years in the making, alhamdulilah. #northcascades
@anastasia.allison had a photoshoot today with @backpackermag - it was SO cold out, and you can barely hear the violin over that waterfall - but WOW 😍😍😍 it was such an incredibly stunning location!! So excited to see these photos!
