Congratulations Sylvia & Dave! 9.17.2011

I had the pleasure of documenting the festivities at the wedding of Sylvia and Dave  on Saturday September 17th at the lovely Tailskid Meadows in Custer, WA. My "work" was made ridiculously easy with such a loving couple, a gorgeous location and a whole bunch of happy wedding guests (with super cute kids!) I've included a selection of Sylvia and Dave's wedding photos in the slide show below - for more please visit this album on my Facebook page!

Catching Up With Evan & Co.!

I got to spend some time awhile back with one of my favorite little guys, Evan and his awesome mom and dad, Samantha & Isaac. I'd gotten used to seeing this happy little family every four months during Evan's first year so after almost a year between shoots, I was really missing them! We got together at the tot lot in Cornwall Park (one of the best shoot locations I've found for for the toddler crowd) to mark Evan's second birthday.  Of course I found Evan to be the same sweet natured, energetic, extremely expressive boy he's been since the beginning - and still cute as ever with that head full of gorgeous red hair!

Downtown Girl

I cannot believe how far behind I have fallen on blogging! I'm going to do my best to play catch up this week despite having a bunch of editing to do, some website updates to make and a Halloween costume to sew. I'm finally taking a moment to share some of my favorite images from a senior shoot I did with beautiful Malaena back in August. I first met Malaena a few years ago when she was a junior bridesmaid in her dad Felipe and step-mom Trisha's wedding and I was so happy when Trisha contacted me to schedule an appointment for Malaena's senior portraits! I knew she would be a lot of fun to work with and she was : )

I think of senior portraits as a big kid's first real opportunity to express who they are to family, friends and the world at large. With this in mind, I prefer to leave the decision of shoot location to the senior. Malaena is a girl who, like me at her age, dreams of getting lost in the big city. Naturally she chose downtown Bellingham for her backdrop and we had a great time roaming around downtown's colorful and wonderfully textured streets and alleys, talking about our shared dream of exploring the streets of New York City : ) I hope Malaena doesn't have to wait as long as I have for this dream to come true!
