A day of inspiration {Workshops; Tacoma Photographer}

Things I love; workshops, meeting other photographers who share similar goals and dreams, and shooting in downtown Tacoma. Over the summer I got to attend a workshop hosted by Shannon Sewell, a kick ass children photographer based out of Oregon. The kids we got to work with were so adorable. I wish my children would stike a pose as much as these little naturals did. Shannon’s course was both inspirational and fun. I learned alot about myself and the direction I want to take my business in the coming year. I highly recommend it to starting photographers. Check her out.

The “M” Family {family session; Auburn Photographer}

Had the wonderful opportunity of meeting up with the “M” family one sunny fall Sunday. This family of 5 had the most adorable kids. Loved the little boys eyes – but then again I’m a sucker for blue eyes. We had a moment of Dad and son football and some cute mom and kiddo kissing moments. My fave image is of her littlest kisses in on the lips.

The “S” Family {Family Session; Auburn Photographer}

Fall in the NW really has to be one of the best time of years for photos. The rich reds, oranges, yellows and greens really shine on a sunny day. I was so excited for my shoots this November to use these colors as my backdrops. First family up for the experience was the “S” family. This handsome family is actually my neighbors. We have lived next to them since 2003. What was so fun for me was looking at the boys through my camera and recalling when they were just little kids. Now grown men, one moved out and the other on his way next. I have never felt so old on a photo shoot.:)I knew it was super important for mom to get some photos of her boys before they both left the nest to create families of their own. Enjoy!


Just in Time for Christmas {maternity session, Auburn Photographer}

The weather certainly has been blustery lately. I wasn’t sure how my next few sessions were going to go but for the “H” family’s maternity session we got lucky. It was a beautiful brisk fall morning with the sun peaking its way through the few left over leaves in the trees, giving mom to be the perfect motherly glow. This little one is due just before Christmas so I thought it would be fitting to “holiday” up the session with a few candy canes. Stay tuned cause we get to meet this little girl next month when I do her maternity session.

Fall family mini session {Family Session; Auburn & Buckley Photographer}

2011 marked my 1st annual family fall mini sessions. It got off on a hard start as we had to move the date on account of the rain. Double to our disappointment was that once the rain stopped – the COLD hit. And big time. Our morning stared with chilly 30 degree temperatures. Me- well I can shoot in any weather. But some of my smaller clients had some red cold noses. As always though, my families rocked the chill and we were able to get some great photos. Here are a few of my faves from the day.
