The Tan Family // Tacoma Family Photography

The day I had scheduled to capture the Tan family it was pouring down rain so we had to switch up our location to a covered parking garage in Downtown Tacoma. I'm so glad that they were flexible and we were able to relocate the session. The garage provided some beautiful soft light for us as you can see!

The Szalonek Family // Tacoma Family Photography

This sweet family came into our community this past year and it has been such a joy to get to know them. Natalie talks incessantly and Titus is the chillest baby I've ever met and they are equally adorable. I'm so glad to have the opportunity to make new friends and to photograph them as well!

The Geiger Family // Tacoma Family Photography

I loved the Geiger's location choice for their session this year! The ferry was the perfect place for a fun family session and the weather was perfectly moody to go along with the Pacific Northwest vibe. By the end of this session little Otto was running up to me and giving me the biggest bear hug ever. I love making new friends with my littlest clients. It's the best!

Rachel // Tacoma Senior Photography

I love it when I have seniors who do ballet! They are always naturals at posing and it's such a fun thing to incorporate ballet into a photo session! Rachel, with her gorgeous hair, was no exception. She says that dancing is a stress reliever for her and you can tell how at ease it puts her, even when it's an impromtu show right in the middle of a photo session!

2016 Year in Review

This has been quite a year! January began with me six months pregnant and quitting my day job to go full time into photography. 

One of the reasons I went full time was to accept a teaching position at Covenant High School. During Winter quarter I taught a basic photography class for junior and senior high school students. It was so fulfilling to teach about my passion and to see students work hard to achieve art through their photographs.
