A romantic bridal session is one of my favorite things to photograph. When I lived in Utah, bridal sessions were so popular! They give the bride a chance to have a session before the wedding day to wear her dress in a location of her choosing, practice her hair and makeup, and create heirloom portraits of this special time in her life. When I moved to Seattle, romantic bridal sessions didn’t seem to be as popular so now I just can’t get enough of them!

Working with the talented ladies behind Bixby And Pine, we bring you a dreamy, romantic, perfectly intimate styled bridal session! It was a dark and rainy day in Washington, but that didn’t stop us from creating a gorgeous bridal session complete with an unexpected pink and red color palette. Collaborating with Taylor, Carson, Jordan and Ashley (the lady bosses of Bixby + Pine) was such a delight! They were so organized and friendly and I didn’t have to worry about a THING! Which, as a new mom/photographer/busy lady, was amazing. Brides: having trust in your vendors is the best thing you can do for yourself for wedding planning and the day of! They were all so upbeat and happy and had every detail taken care of. It was truly a positive experience working with them, and I can’t wait to work with them in the future with my wonderful brides and their wedding days! So if you’re looking for a great team to work with for your wedding, check out their details here!

Seattle Family Photographer // This is my favorite type of family session! Whether you call it a “lifestyle” session or “newborn” session or “family session” — I loved telling a part of this family’s story in their home. Adding a newborn to your family is special. I recently became a mom myself to a sweet baby girl, and I think that has made me an even better family photographer. I so easily remember staring at my newborn all day, trying to memorize every movement. I love how each baby is different and you get to know their unique personality from day one! All the little quirks are so sweet– I loved how this baby boy rested his arm across his face while nursing and all of his tiny grunts and breaths. He grabbed his very thick and beautiful hair but wasn’t quite sure why it was hurting him (so sad but so adorable!).

I know how a new baby quickly consumes your heart with so much love, and how even quicker the moments seem to fleet away. I loved this newborn and family session in the home of a wonderful couple who just welcomed their sweet little boy! As a seattle family photographer nothing makes me happier than documenting the candid natural photographs of a new family who is so full of love and ease. The details of this tiny newborn are so sweet. I loved photographing the baby’s small little feet, ten tiny toes, and we even got some newborn smiles and eye contact. Candid and natural photographs of a family in their element are just some of the best photographs to document. I know how sweet this time of life is, so please friends– enjoy ever second of it and photograph it! Looking back on images of your fresh baby will remind you of how it all just goes by too fast. xoxo

Alyssa and Miguel wanted to enjoy their wedding day– one of the best goals of a wedding in my opinion! They were married at the beautiful outdoor venue Craven Farms in Snohomish, Washington. It was relaxed, easy going and full of family and friends! Alyssa was inspired by all things cottage, natural, hues of blush and blue and gold and lovely hand lettering. The day was a total success and although it was a rainy day, the mood was light and airy and happy! I loved photographing this Craven Farm wedding and documenting the story of this sweet and loving family!

This effortless Downton Abbey Inspired rose garden Wedding was beautiful from start to finish! Wedding venues depict how your overall wedding feels, how your photos will look and ultimately the venue influences the guest experience on the day of. This couple chose to get married at Thornewood Castle in Lakewood, WA. This is a dreamy, fairytale, castle wedding venue in Western Washington. The look is classic, with the brick castle, hardwood, and lush gardens and grounds. It was the perfect feel for this Downton Abbey inspired garden venue.

The couple incorporated so much romance into their wedding day. The romantic rose garden was the perfect setting for their wedding ceremony. The bride’s romantic sweetheart neckline dress is a beautiful compliment to the style of her wedding day. When the groom proposed, there were fireworks! So to incorporate more of their love story into their wedding day, he was sure to include some magic with a firework send off!
