Tyler Class of 2012 Cascade Senior Rep

I can't believe my eyes when looking through these pictures of my nephew. The once bald baby boy I used to babysit is now a very handsome young man! He looks so much like his dad in these pictures, I can't believe he will be graduating next year. I am so proud of him, and can't wait to watch where life is going to take him. Love you Tyler! ;)

Sarah Class of 2012 Cascade Senior Rep

My niece and nephew will be seniors next year (gasp!) and I asked them to pose for some early senior pictures. I can't believe how grown up and mature Sarah has become. She has grown into such a beautiful young woman!! Here are several pictures from our session the other day, I couldn't narrow down my favorites! Stay tuned for Tyler's pictures, he is such stud! ;)

Tulip Festival

My sister and I have made a tradition of going up to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival for the past several years. We love all the beautiful colors, and never leave without taking some tulips home with us! This year we decided to go before all the fields were in bloom. We wanted to beat the crowds as well as see the early bloomers that we miss when we go up late in the season. It's beautiful up there and I look forward to going every year. Here are some of the pictures we took when we visited on Thursday!

Father Daughter Walk in the Park

This father and daughter were so much fun to photograph. It is nice to get two subjects who don't run in the other direction when you point a camera at them. :) They were full of ideas and up for anything! Thanks for meeting up guys, can't wait to do it again!

The Koch Boys

I met up with some of my favorite little boys Sunday morning at Point Defiance Park in Tacoma. It was fun to hang out with them for awhile and chase them around the park! We were hoping for some warmer weather, but got some great shots nonetheless!

Little Justen....again :)

His mom and dad wanted some more shots of Justen to match previous years. He was dressed in my favorite thing on little ones...plaid! He is so much fun to take pictures of, I love love love his little smile!

DeSanctis Family

This little guy did soo great this morning! He brought some action figures with him, and was happy to share them with me. Little man was adorable and we had a nice walk around the Grand Ave. Park in Everett. We were lucky the rain held off for our session, and even got some sunshine towards the end. Thanks for taking the gamble this morning DeSanctis family, it really paid off!

Chilly Chase

Little Chase had to battle some wind during his session, but he held up well! We got a few great shots before we had to get back inside. Thanks for meeting up guys, Chase is adorable!!

Sweet Sweet Sam has arrived!

Little Samantha kept mom and dad waiting, but she is well worth it! She barely made a peep, and is such a snuggler. She would sleep away while being cuddled, but set her on her own and she would be wide awake taking in her surroundings! Simply adorable either way! Congrats guys, she is gorgeous!

Operation Love Reunited...Welcome home VAQ-131!

As most of you know I recently became a member of Operation Love Reunited. It is a non profit organization that is made up of photographers that have volunteered our time to capture the memories of homecomings for our deployed service men and women. I was honored to be asked to join the homecoming of VAQ-131. It was a great experience and the family was amazing to work with. The two oldest boys were so fun to talk with, and all of the boys did great even though the homecoming was late in the evening. My knowledge of lighting indoors at night was really put to the test, I think this experience has made up my mind that I definitely need an external flash!

A HUGE THANK YOU to all of those who are serving (and have served) in the military. I truly am honored and feel blessed to be involved with an organization that I believe in 100%. I can't wait for future OpLove sessions and the opportunity to work with this incredible family (did I mention mom has her hands full with four boys?!)

Rockin' at Four Months Old

Little Peyton is growing so fast! I was able to meet with his momma (my beautiful niece) and we drove around Everett looking for a park I had researched. We got lost. :( Luckily we headed back into Everett and found a fun ally to take some shots in. I love how they came out!
