Teagan and her groupies

The holidays mean family portrait sessions and I have been doing A LOT. Every year I have to cram then all in at the end of wedding season, trying to find a day that it isn’t raining too hard or too frosty to be comfortable. I always ask myself why I keep trying to squeeze them all in, and then I remember how much fun it is to take photos of kids (and their parents too.) Like the Berreth family– I couldn’t resist posting a few from a few weeks ago of the most adorable redhead, Teagan, and her cute folks. And if you are reading this and wanting some family portraits– think Spring!









And while you are at it, I joined this new site called Wedding Wire.  You can review your favorite wedding vendors.  If you have a chance, click below and write a {nice} review!

girls + shoes = fun

I have been dying to post about this shoot ever since I shot it at the beginning of the month. Come on really?! Two things that I love to photograph in one, amazing shoot- beautiful people and shoes! Can you believe it? What a dream job.

So here are a few from the Mi Shoes photo shoot. Mi Shoes is a fabulous shoe shop here in Bellingham (yes folks, we do have some fashion-goodness going on here in Bellingham) and Michelle, the owner, also happens to be the stunning model in all the shots. Her new, tantalizing website will be up and running her in the next month or so so check back for scrumptious shoes and accessories. I had such a hard time choosing what to post that now I am not even sure that I have picked my favorites- or even 10% of my favorites. Oh well.

Lots of family shoots and all those great wedding from the Summer that I couldn’t squeeze in yet to come (I hope!)

ps. Thanks to Shimmer for Michelle’s perfect make-up and Heather at Thinkmill for being a great assistant and creative director behind this project– can’t wait to see her work!




























Kelly - Oh wow! Looking at this felt like peeking in to my own wardrobe (okay, except I don’t own a fringed mini-skirt . . .). Looks like such a fun shoot – wonderful photography and direction.

rachael - I LOVE MI SHOES! i can only go in there once a month cause i never leave empty handed; whether it’s shoes, a purse, knee highs or fingerless gloves, i LOVE every inch of that store.

and michelle looks gorgeous! kudos!

erin kate - these are fabulous! i love your locations!

melissa - great work, I love the chandelier image and those white shoes I WANT them!!
