Halli is such a doll. Her genuine and sweet spirit is so captivating--I loved capturing her inner and outer beauty! We spent hours tromping through the park finding all the "gem" spots that highlighted this gorgeous girl's personality best and I am just so excited about the way this shoot turned out! Her sister even joined us for a few fun shots. :) Thank you Halli for choosing me to take your Senior pictures, I had such a great time working with you!
I so loved this session with Keilah. We literally kept shooting til the sun went down, it was that much fun! I have always enjoyed watching dance, especially ballet--the elegance of the dancers just makes one feel so inspired and alive. So of course I get goosebumps joining these two art forms together and I seriously don't get to capture beauty like this nearly enough! So if there are any more dancers out there who need their portraits taken, I definitely wouldn't mind planning a shoot with you! ;)
I hope you enjoy viewing these images as much as I did taking them.
This is one of the most bubbly, caring, not to mention radiant young ladies I have had the privilege of knowing. She and I met last spring working together as barista's, now here she is, graduating next month and about to take off for UW! I seriously could have kept shooting all night, the whole session was just breathtaking! I have loved getting to know you this past year Alyssa, you have a beautiful love for the Lord and a heart as big as the sky, I know that will take you far! Love you, girl!
I have been SO behind on posting!! Just all kinds of crazy transitions happening in my life, and I needed to take a step back and breathe for a bit...but with spring being among us and all this temperamental weather to navigate around, I managed to get a few shoots done to share with you (finally)!
This particular model is my beautiful friend Amanda. She is a sweet soul who carries such a peace with her wherever she goes...I have loved getting to know this gem of a human being a little better this year. She was so brave tromping miles through the Grand Forest in the rain with her sister and I, all in this little number (and high heels!) just to get some lovely shots like this one!
I had so much fun with you Amanda, thanks for letting me capture your gorgeous self in this crazy WA weather we deal with. I enjoyed this shoot thoroughly!
This was a random 'Let's chase the sunrise down and see what happens' kind of morning. There is something irresistible about all these fall sunrises we've happened to enjoy lately (we almost always get overcast, foggy mornings here in the PNW). Though this idea was spontaneously dreamed up, it was definitely one of those just had to's that I could NOT miss out on. It was a hit and miss adventure for sure, and miraculously, the sun made it's glorious appearance on that fateful daybreak. Dawn's colorful beams lit the beach like fireworks and you could just feel the music of the moment hit every corner of your soul. The marsh was pretty magical too. Thank you Tianna for joining me on this wild adventure and to the owners of this magnificent slice-of-heaven for letting us disrupt the morning routine to get these amazing shots.
This is my friend, Margaret. She is an incredible young woman with a passion to encourage and bring life to those around her. She's the type of gal you can always count to bring a smile to your face with her cheerful spirit! She also likes long walks on the beach, reading, and hanging at her fave coffee shop... (ha!) Seriously though, you are such a blessing Margaret! Thanks for the coffee date and letting me take you around town to capture your spunk!! Love you dearly and good luck at the U.W.!
