EXPLORE

If I had to use one word to describe little August, it would be the explorer. During our recent family session at Schmitz Preserve Park in West Seattle, he was our trail guide taking us down all the paths at lightning speeds. He was tough to catch, and often had many toddler opinions on which […]

Substantial is a digital product studio based in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. As part of their effort to start doing more storytelling around their projects and their people, we shot a series featuring environmental portraiture and details in their amazing workspace. There was a relaxed and focused energy throughout the office complete with furry friends […]

During the holidays, there are so many great spots to get family shots, but one of my favorites is Discovery Park. There’s an area with loads of pines that looks just like a small tree farm. It was just the spot for some sweet pics with Mary and her little reindeer, I mean, daughter. Our […]

I first met Chloe, founder of Gather Seattle in the summer of 2017. I had reached out about photographing an event at Matthews Winery, and she took me up on it. It was an absolute dream. I got to capture a beautiful farm to table lunch and participate in inspired conversations alongside other Seattle creative […]

With a 5am wake-up time for a shoot, you’re either very crazy or very stoked. Ok, maybe a little of both. This was absolutely one of the most amazing early mornings I’ve experienced in my life. My sister Marie is engaged to her sweetheart Trevor, and we adventured all over San Francisco’s stunning Marin Headlands […]

I go way back with this sweet fam. Team Baden Fox holds a special spot in my heart. When I first moved to the Bay Area, Alli and Dave were such a support system for me. I went to Alli’s baby shower, photographed Zach in his mama’s belly, and again when he first arrived. And […]

Try and remember back to when you were a senior in high school. What did you think you were going to be? Where did you take your senior photos? All I can say is that I didn’t have it nearly as figured out as Isabelle and thank goodness for both of us her mom was […]

What a year it has been for this lovely family. This is the 3rd shoot I’ve had the pleasure of doing for Alex and Sarah, and it just keeps getting better. For their holiday photos this year, they absolutely crushed it with the cutest ever matching pjs that have ever happened. And they put their […]

Photographing the food and spirit of family-run Italian hotspot Locanda Ravello in Danville was a real joy. First of all, Bay Area peeps, if you haven’t been to Danville, you’re missing out. It’s absolutely adorable. Everywhere I turned there was a cute little old renovated sports car or vintage truck with a perfect paint job. […]

Ok so being that I’m related to these fine people, I will say going into this, that I’m incredibly biased. But oh my freaking goodness, do I have the cutest niece and nephew around, or what? Jeebs. What is an aunt to do? This incredibly adorable crew is my family, and I am so lucky […]
