To all you mommies out there losing sleep, bypassing showers, throwing towels on the bed because milk went everywhere and you’re too tired to clean at midnight (been there 🙋🏼♀️), drinking loads of coffee to stay awake, and praying for patience to be a good wife and mom... my heart goes to you. Thank goodness time goes on and each day is a little different than the next.
Playing in the shadows with Bre & Elliott last month at their wedding. They’re getting their wedding gallery later this week and I’m so excited for them to see it!
A favorite from our recent Fall campaign photoshoot for @report_shoes
/ loved working at this amazing location (Flying Horseshoe Guest Ranch in Cle Elum) with my favorite people!
There is power in His name. I am free. It is finished. The spirit of fear and worry are not from God, they will not be with me. Peace and strength will cover me as I walk into this next season, unafraid and fearless. I am letting go of who I once was, moving onto greater things. The mountains will bow, the heavens will shake, and the earth will move. Whatever this season brings, I am ready.
Last year my friend @jonstronglives
told me that he found out his grandma owned Wallys. I’d been working on my “Inhabit” series for awhile and thought that she’d be a great fit for an interview. He gave me her number and within a week or two I was at “Wallys” interviewing her and the other owner Martin. They were kind enough to sit with me, share stories about the bar, and their personal lives. We got to snap some portraits and some classic shots of the space.
This morning when the staff went to open the bar, they found the doors locked and a sign on the door saying that after 64 years, Wallys was closed. @orlandobungalower
posted that Martin was experiencing some health problems. So I guess it’s best. The bar meant a lot to to the community and several hundred people held a “candle light vigil” tonight. My friend rob and I dropped by, drank a beer, and circled the perimeter. I had a lot of really good times and some of the best conversations with friends in that bar despite it being a total dive. You can read the whole “Inhabit” article at the link in my profile.
When the king and queen make their grand entrance. 👰🤵
the beauty of lifestyle sessions ❤️
One thing I love about taking portraits is capturing the eyes. ✨
Inquiring minds want to know! Where did you grow up and where do you live now? I grew up in Gig Harbor, Washington until 1999 (the year I graduated high school). Then, I lived in Vermont, California, Colorado, North Carolina, Massachusetts and all over Washington State (with the majority of those wandering years being in Bellingham, Wa). I then landed here in Tacoma, Washington five years ago. About 20 min from my old Gig Harbor neighborhood. 💁🏼♀️ Fun fact: My 13 year old son attends the same junior high I attended and has three of the same teachers who taught me! Sorry kid. And sorry teachers 😂
No, I don’t have consumption asshole , I ran out of concealer.
This evening’s engagement session was SO beyond perfect. We had fun in the woods but then finished with the hazy, smoky sunset on the water. Honestly, what it’s been doing with the skies and sun is pretty wild for photos. I can’t wait for Emma and Connor’s wedding next year, it’s going to be just as fabulous as these playful water photos!

Gimme all the proposals that make me climb mountains and hide in the trees🌲 I was crying. It was beautiful. Just all the feels, Jess and Matty. You guys are seriously a match made in Heaven!
We need Captain Planet!! 🌎💪🏼
Don’t believe in #climatechange
???? All of the forest fires from Washington to Canada created the most toxic air I have ever breathed. I’m not just being a drama queen...this ish is gah-ross. I can only imagine what people and animals even closer are going thru. Mother Nature is no fool, and she pissed. •

One of my favorite pastimes is strolling through cute Portland neighborhoods. On today’s stroll we picked up a fresh bouquet of flowers and sat down to enjoy @ouibyyoplait
I love the sweet, fresh fast of Oui and the cute little glass jars it comes in! I even find that they make for great jewelry holders. @krogerco #KrogerOui
