Sarah and Julian : Tacoma Portraits

As part of a recent mentor session with photographer Tina Loveridge, we photographed Sarah and Julian around downtown Tacoma. We had a blast getting up close and personal with these lovebirds while sharing a bit of our approach and passion with Tina. Aren’t they gorgeous?!

Nico and Chantel : Utah Mountain Engagements

My handsome brother is getting married! We are so happy to welcome Chantel into our family. We love her so much, and they couldn’t be a better fit. We recently took a quick trip up to the mountains of Utah to photograph them exploring the area around Old Snow Basin. It was the perfect setting for such a gorgeous couple.

The Brauns : Tacoma Family Portraits

Our friends and fellow photographers, The Brauns, were recently in town from Ohio and wanted to take advantage of their time in the PNW for some family portraits. We hopped on a ferry and took a walk in the woods, quintessential PNW activities. One of our favorite things when photographing families is to be observers, allowing the family to enjoy their time together, allowing us to capture those real moments.

Stefanie and Elias : Salt Lake Engagement

When we got the call that my little sister was engaged, it was no surprise to us! Stefanie and Elias are so great together, it just seemed natural that Elias would soon become a part of our family. I can still remember my sisters wild curls as she ran around in my brothers cowboy boots as an adorable toddler. But there is still something surreal about your sweet little sister getting married. She’s all grown up. We love you both and are so thrilled for you! We can’t wait to be there next month to celebrate the union of two families!

Jimmy and Madeline Maternity: Tacoma

Our friends, Jimmy & Madi are expecting a baby boy very soon! We are so thrilled for them. Especially because that means our Lucia will have another pal! Madi is one of the most beautiful pregnant women I have ever encountered. You know, the one with absolutely no swelling, all baby, and from behind she looks like a little hottie that is definitely not pregnant! Every girls dream. We love these two and are so excited for this amazing journey of parenthood they are about to embark on. Hearts exploding with love and joy. Parenthood is the greatest.

The MacDonald Family : Tacoma

We love our friends, the MacDonalds. Evan and Travis have known each other for more than 20 years, and have remained very close throughout all that time. Evan and Lindsay are both very talented individuals. In fact, Evan created our branding and designed our website. It is wonderful to see Evan and Lindsay’s family grow, and see the growth of the cute personalities of their little girls, Nina and Elena.

Adrian and Melissa : Tacoma

We like to photograph our dear friends, Adrian and Melissa. In fact, we try to do it once a year. We spent time traveling around, exploring some of our local treasures. We’re really going to miss these two as they move to New York so Melissa can study at NYU, but we are so happy for them and what the future holds!Adrian-and-Melissa-2012-Web-5

The Hanks Family : Bellevue

We were so excited when Ken and Brianna contacted us for a portrait session. We photographed their wedding nearly two years ago, and now they have a handsome little boy! It’s such a joy to be in this business and watch families grow. The Baptism gown baby X is wearing came over from Ireland over one hundred years ago, and every male on Ken’s side of the family has worn it. Amazing! I love traditions like that.
