Sneak Peek: Anna {SENIOR}

Anna is just one of those people who you can’t help smiling when you are around. She has such a warm, caring personality, and is a blast to hang out with. We met at church, and I have been so blessed to get to know Anna over the last 9 months or so.

Loving the classic look here. Anna, you are so pretty!

Tumwater Falls Park is such a lovely place to take pictures

When Anna was 3, she had a picture taken with a small sunflower pinned to her dress. Her mom wanted some senior pictures reinterpreting that shot, so we did!

Anna_seniorsession04

Love this one!

Anna_seniorsession05

Lovely! This to me in Anna, relaxed and happy.

Anna_seniorsession06

Love the fur hood (thanks for being a sport Anna, I know it was warm!)

Sneak Peek: The Thompson’s {FAMILY}

I had so much fun tonight! I know that it seems like I say that after every session, but this crazy family I photographed tonight was so much like my own family is was hysterical! In 10 years, this is going to be my and my siblings, mooning each other to get a good laugh for family pictures. Charlotte, I am so glad that you see the importance in family portraits, and I am thrilled that your family did so well!

Thompson_familysession01

What a good lookin’ family!

Thompson_familysession04

These are the four siblings…

Thompson_familysession02

…they drove all the way from Woodinville, and look at all those boys!

Thompson_familysession05

Nate’s family, and his…

Thompson_familysession03

…adorable little kids!

Thompson_familysession06Thompson_familysession07

They did a great job of showing me around their new house and property, and scouting locations for pictures.

Thompson_familysession08

This is Amy (the lone sister!)

Thompson_familysession09

and Andrew! (he’s the guilty culprit who mooned his family to get a good laugh for pictures)

Charlotte, Harlan and family, thank you so much for choosing me to capture your family. I had a blast!

Sneak Peek: Jake {SENIOR}

This session was awesome. (realizing I use that word a lot.) Jake’s mom is my {very awesome} nail lady, and I had a blast taking Jake’s senior pictures yesterday. This is one photogenic guy (I keep getting the good-looking ones!), and I am loving how these pictures turned out.

Jake_seniorsession01

I have so many favorites from this session…I just love this one because this is the real Jake…relaxed, and just a hint of a smile (thanks Ashley!).

Jake_seniorsession02

I LOVE freckles!

Jake_seniorsession03

Another fav. He actually picked this tree and pose (good job, Jake!)

Jake_seniorsession04

Oh, fall is here! I adore this one! pretty colors.

Jake_seniorsession05

I have never had a picture be so perfect before…we walked over by the river, went under the bridge for shade, sat down, I snapped ONE single picture, and *knew* that this was going to be the one. Per-fecto!

Jake_seniorsession06

Jake, thanks for being such an awesome guy to photograph. I hope this year goes well for you!

Sneak Peek: Tate {WF WEST SENIOR REP}

I had a ton of fun with Tate last night! Tate is one of my reps this year, and we did her mini-session last night in search of the perfect yearbook shot. Tate is an urban girl, so we ended up shooting in downtown Centralia again. I am really loving these pictures…then again, take a look at that infectious smile. How could you not love these?!

Tate_seniorsession05

This is my personal favorite from the night, and my vote for the yearbook picture. What do you all think?

Tate_seniorsession11

This girl makes looking good look easy.

Tate_seniorsession15

Tate_seniorsession16

I love this dress/shirt! (shh, don’t tell my dad I just professed love to anything that resembles his old plaid shirts…)

Tate_seniorsession18

Tate is a football cheerleader, and I am loving these shots!

Tate_seniorsession22

Tate_seniorsession21

This is my second favorite yearbook shot! Tate, you’ve got lots of good choices!

Sneak Peek: Vanessa {SENIOR}

I had so much fun finding new places to shoot tonight with Vanessa (who is a friend of Araceli and Tate!) Vanessa was a total trooper, up for anything I suggested. I cannot believe my luck lately with sessions…I have had the pleasure of photographing the most beautiful people in great locations with awesome light. What a combination (makes my job a whole lot easier!)

Vanessa_seniorsession01

At one point Vanessa told me that she didn’t “do well” with pictures. Well, I’m going to have to officially disagree with her. Girl, you were awesome tonight, and these picture turned out amazing.

Vanessa_seniorsession06

I love this one.

Vanessa_seniorsession13

Vanessa has so much confidence here.

Vanessa_seniorsession20

I loved this picture from the moment I saw it through the viewfinder, and I asked a little skeptically…are you into the whole country girl look, cause you’re rockin’ it here…? Luckily she said yes, so we’re in the clear!

Vanessa_seniorsession17

What a megawatt smile!

Vanessa_seniorsession25

I adore this one. I don’t normally compose pictures like this, but it’s just like…her she is!

Vanessa_seniorsession30

Another fav, this whole set is amazing!

Vanessa_seniorsession35

Vanessa, thanks for being such a good sport, jumping onto rusted pickup beds, dealing with waist-high grass and spiders! I know that you will love these pictures, because they are you, and the are AWESOME!
