You know the saying, “this money is burning a hole in my pocket”… Well this blog post has been burning a hole in my computer! After a week of fighting off the flu I finally have the time/energy to blog some of my favorite images from our session! Stevie and Jeff are so excited for their baby girl to get here and I just know it’s going to be any day now. Stevie is 40 weeks and I’m anxiously awaiting the news of her arrival. What a beautiful couple and soon to be parents. I had so much fun photographing Stevie in her beautiful (self-made) flower crown and LOLA dresses. Stevie and Jeff have wonderful hearts and are always looking for ways to help and give back. Check our their shops in Olympia, WA and online. LOLA Lifestyle Boutique and Hawks Prairie/Northwest Home Furnishings. Thanks Olson Family!

Naulty family, you made my job WAY too easy! Talk about starting my year off on a high note! I had the most wonderful time getting to photograph this bunch and I’ve been dying to share this blog post with you. Right after leaving this session, I wrote the following on my Instagram. “WHY be a photographer? Today’s family session affirmed my love for creating images. In the process of creating an image, I get to make people laugh, I get to make them hug and squeeze each other, and play and be silly! I get to be creative, make new friends and absorb how to be a great parent. The family I met today (for the first time) kept saying throughout the session, “Thank you so much for taking time to capture our family.” Their words made me feel appreciated and so valued. I needed that today. I needed to remember the WHY.” Thank you Naulty family for re-igniting the spark of creativity within me! Enjoy!
This is Jeff, Stevie, Lulu and Lola! Aren’t they the cutest ever?! Stevie is the owner of LOLA Lifestyle Boutique downtown Olympia and I’ve had the pleasure of working with her on photography projects for LOLA’s website and blog. This gal not only knows how to put together an outfit, but also has an incredible vision for future trends, and all things beautiful. When she approached me with the idea of incorporating water, boats and her pups to announce they were expecting, I knew it was going to be amazing! This session was so fun and I can hardly wait to meet their little bambino! Congrats you guys! Lastly, a huge thank you to Oscar Wall for providing his beautiful handmade boat and paddle! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in contacting Oscar for other product/purchasing information. Thank you!
P.S. Loving their outfits? You can find these amazing pieces at LOLA Lifestyle Boutique
Emily contacted me in May and told me she got engaged and then married super quick and never had any photos taken! I mean a girl needs photos with her hubby, right?! It’s a must! I was so happy she contacted me and we were able to plan this session together! The love these two share is pure magic and I’m excited for their upcoming adventures together. California is gaining one amazing couple and puppy in the near future! Thank you Stephen & Emily for spending the evening with me and I wish you all the best! HUGS!
3, 2, 1…..It’s baby time! Little shoes. Little clothes. Little smiles that melt your heart. Can I just say how much I LOVE this session!? When Vanessa asked me to photograph a newborn session with her son, I told her I’m not really a “newborn” photographer and if she wanted to hire someone who is a newborn photographer, I’d be happy to recommend someone! She replied, “No I don’t want another photographer!! Haha, whatever you do is good.” What an amazing response! With her complete trust in my abilities, I was super excited to do my thing. As I look through this post, it’s hard for me not to get emotional! This family is so incredibly beautiful and I’m truly thankful for their complete confidence in me to capture this rapidly changing part of their lives. Baby Cash is such a heart-breaker and his older sister Tyler cracks me up! I especially love the faces she gave me when eating her cereal. Thank you Brigham family for not only your kind words, but also your generous hearts! Congrats to you! Family of FOUR! I mean FIVE with puppy. Hehe! Oh and GO SEAHAWKS!
