Supermoon Lunar Eclipse Night

The beautiful, cloudless Northwestern sky opened up its arms tonight for a glorious show of the Supermoon total lunar eclipse. Without a tripod handy, I did the best I could and wanted to share two images: the first is fully eclipsed, the second is the shadow beginning to move. Notice the redness of the full eclipse.

And for you lunar geeks, here are a couple images from the Blue Moon on July 30, 2015:

Farm Country Wedding

This beautiful, quaint farm wedding was celebrated on the first hot Northwest day in early June. With temperatures over 90 degrees, friends and family basked in the sunshine and gathered around James and Meg to bless their marriage. Fragrant flowers, smiling faces, and lots of love mingled to make this a memorable day. Congrats James and Meg!

Thanks to Justin Slemp for being a second shooter during the ceremony and reception! Thanks to Juston Keeble for being my faithful and handsome assistant, always ready to hand me a lens, carry my camera bag, and refresh my water bottle (and get me the last piece of broccoli on the tray).

If You Were Two Weeks Old…

…You couldn’t be cuter than this little one! Jadon has already proved to be valiant and exuberant for life, and as the first child of his parents, he has completely captured their hearts (and mine!). This is session one of two, so check back to see his eight-week-old session! 2015-06-29_0001.jpg

Celebrations

I had the joy once again of watching through the lens of a little one going from belly bump to newborn to six-month-old to two-year-old! I had a wonderful time spending an evening celebrating this two-year-old’s birthday along with her mom and dad’s 9th wedding anniversary!

A Double Happy First Birthday!

One of the best joys of being a family photographer is watching children grow from pre-world to one year, and then through toddler years onward. This was a special photo session celebrating one year birthdays plus an early Christmas tree decorating party in festive dresses for twins Amelia and Addison (here’s their pre-world photos)!

Just Before a Weekend Storm

Somewhere between cool, sunny autumn skies and the haunting of a rainy, wind-tossed darkness was a perfect hour filled with baby smiles. Seriously– this adorable family!

Perfect Morning at the Pumpkin Patch

There’s nothing like getting a 2 year old to smile with some tractor “driving,” pumpkin picking for grandma, and fresh caramel corn eating! Little Wylie enjoyed his morning of adventure as much as I enjoyed finding the following gems on my camera! A perfect foggy Pacific Northwest morning provided the optimal light for our pumpkin patch outing at Baggenstos Farm!

Autumn Afternoon Wedding

The very first time I met with Monica and Tyson, I knew that their wedding day would be full of elegance, light-heartedness, and lots of love! The beautiful autumn day did not disappoint as family and friends celebrated their marriage, along with random strangers in the square! Enjoy and congratulations Monica and Tyson!

A huge shout out to my friend, assistant and second shooter, Jeanne McNeill for supporting me in this fantastic wedding! Couldn’t have done it without you!

Baby Lucy!

The dear little sweetheart we’ve been waiting for arrived on June 25th with a smile on her face and a head full of silky blonde hair! Blessings to Cherith and Nathan on their new adventure of parenthood!
