Leah & Byron- Engaged!!

This girl is one of my closest friends, so I couldn’t be more happy for her and her forever love.

We went out to Joshua tree for their engagement photos, but while we waited for the sun to set a bit, we played around in our fun airbnb.

I love when my clients feel this comfortable with me. That’s my goal! I want you two to laugh and play and dance around. I’ll most likely be doing the same.

Your love for each other is what I am here to capture, so lets’ have FUN!

Puppies & a big comfy bed!

I met this girl in the womb. She’s my sister and that’s my brother in law. Oh, yes that makes those cute pups my nieces, Tsubi and Cali.

Unique facts about these doggies:

Tsubi- the white one once stole my Cinnabon off my plate and has to have her stuffed animal in order to fall asleep at night.

Cali- the tan one was born without eyes but she’s so smart you wouldn’t even know it! She loves her cave which is laying under blankets covering her whole body. It makes her feel safe.

While this session was pretty chill that is not always the case! It can’t always be smooth having your pups in photos. Often the clients want to focus on getting their dogs to look at the camera, sit or behave.

Let me worry about that! If they’re not listening, it’s cause they’re so excited and curious. It’s honestly adorable and you’ll love the photographs even more if you let them be their goofy fun selves. (don’t worry, we can get a normal one with them looking at the camera too!)

But let’s ride with it! If they take off running, lets run too. If they jump, jump with them. If they want to kiss you all over your face, let them.

This makes for photographs that are authentic to you and your fur family.
And that’s what I am after. Finding what makes your family unique and capturing that for you to remember forever.

So let’s embrace it and get your dogs/pets in your portraits, because we both know our lives revolve around our fur babies.

Ebey's Landing with the LeBlanc Family

One of my FAVORITE families! They are always so much fun to shoot with. I can feel so much of their love for each other in every session we do.

Here we are at Ebey’s Landing in WA State. You feel like you’re on a tiny island far from the rest of the world and surrounded by the big blue sea. We spent the afternoon exploring this quiet and serene location until the sun finally dissapeared below the ocean.
