summer rose | bonney lake lifestyle newborn photographer

How perfect that my first two sessions of the new year were one of each gender!?

Last week I got to meet Summer Rose at the petite size of barely seven pounds and the age of 2 and a half weeks! She is so darling and just so sweet.

I love the blushes and soft neutrals that we went with, so fitting with her complexion and blonde hair. Just dreamy.

Congratulations Bennyhoff family! You have three darling girls on your hands!






baby Theodore | Olympia lifestyle newborn photographer

Well, it’s been some time since I got to do photos for the Lutz family, but I am so glad I got to again! There’s been a few changes over the years, the kids have grown and the number of them has, too! Meet Theodore! What a sweet, happy to go with the buzzing flow little guy. I think I kissed and smelled him more than I usually do at my sessions…he was my first back from the Christmas break and I was ready for some new baby time!

Baby Theodore is well loved and cared for by big sis Charity and big bro Henry. Congrats mom and dad! What a great little crew you have!


elle turns one | pink and gold party | Tacoma Baby Photographer

We entered a new realm of party…and goodness was it fun! We have had such fun parties in this house with  Lego (like here), firetrucks and camping. This birthday was a whole new world and it was full of pink and gold and glitter and sweets!

I decided to stick with treats and do an in between morning and afternoon nap party. We made our favorite caramel corn and had cookies and pink dipped pretzels. The best part of the treats of course was the cake and cupcakes! I have to just rave for a second on Emily of Sweet Things by eh. She was amazing to work with and her final product is delicious! If you are local you must try her out for your next event. She makes an array of treats and also delivers! I have to say crawling into bed the night before the party and not having the cake lingering over my head, to decorate and to pick up was amazing. Serious, check her out!

A couple sweet moments to remember… while we sang to her she started to dance. &  when I told her to  blow out her candle she blew a kiss. she really is just so sweet.

So now it has come and gone and big brother Tate and I survived her welcoming in the start of her second year… 🙂

happy first birthday our little darling, Elle Anneliese!

welcome tucker | gigharbor lifestyle newborn photographer

Oh baby Tucker! What a sweet little peanut he is! And how timely, arriving on his due date at the small and perfect size of just over 6 pounds. He was so sweet and I couldn’t really get enough of him! The light was so beautiful in the Jone’s home and they were just beaming with pride, so fun to see! I’m not sharing any of the Christmas-y photos we got, even though they are SO cute! But I promised I would keep them secret for possible cards and presents. 🙂

Trevor and Jen, what a wonderful little family you have. Enjoy your first Christmas as a family of three! (well, four including Samba 😉 ) xo


the wilkinson family | Port Orchard family photographer

What a fun session this was! I had a hard time narrowing down what to share, I loved so many images from our time together. Sam is a fellow-local photographer herself and I was so honored she contacted me awhile back to do a session for her and her sweet family. It only took a couple rained out days to end up with our perfect, albeit chilly afternoon. Photos of little Abbi and her daddy are easy to come by, but family photos are a huge feat, that I understand! So our main goal was family, and we achieved and surpassed that goal!

Thanks so much Sam, you guys were a dream! Hope you enjoy! And congrats on baby #2!! 🙂 _J7A6597 copy_J7A6850_J7A6928
