The Moro wedding in Wenatchee, Washington was the most fitting wedding to end the year on. At our first meeting, Sedyrra and Gerald exuded so much peace, calm, and sweetness together.

Getting to know other photographer’s in the Chelan area has been such a treat! When you’re a photographer it is weirdly hard to have your pictures taken by another photographer because you think, “I can take pictures of everyone in my family exactly the way I want… It’s just that whole family photo part that’s […]

This fall mountain family photo session in Lake Chelan was just beautiful. But it wasn’t just the surrounding beauty and this gorgeous family that made it stand out to me.

It takes a really special person to plan and execute the most magical surprise in your happy place. When Ryan and Kaitlin came out Labor Day weekend to visit her grandparent’s in Chelan, Wa, you might think she would be expecting something.

Christy and Austin celebrated a gorgeous fall wedding in mid September at Rio Vista Winery in Chelan, Wa. Their ties to the local communities, between Waterville and Manson,

Where is your happy place? Since I was a little girl I’ve always loved Leavenworth, WA for the fun had with my sisters, and boyfriend/fiance/husband (he was forced into my happy place very often!

Ladies and gentleman, may I present Summer and Dekker Lane! These lovebirds shared their sweet engagement with me in the most frigid of December temperatures and then their wedding in the hottest of July days. And might I say they rocked every second of those extremes! The two were married at Summer’s Grandfather’s place, Twin […]

If you’ve ever been to Lake Chelan, you might be surprised that this family session took place in the area, what with all the lush greenery! We found this spot down at the Beebee Springs Wildlife Area near the Columbia River on the outskirts of Lake Chelan. The winding gravel paths, green swaths of grass, […]

One of the initial most exciting things about moving to Lake Chelan for me were the bare rolling hills and mountains with incredible vistas everywhere you turned. My whole life I grew up around forests as far as you could see, or as far as your island reached. Don’t get me wrong, that western PNW […]

I’ve been looking forward to my first wedding of the year at gorgeous Arbor Crest Wine Cellars with great anticipation. Not only is the venue jaw dropping, the couple was amazing. Since meeting Josh and Ellaina at their Snohomish farm engagement shoot last October, I knew their wedding would be well thought out and full […]

When I first moved to Lake Chelan I asked the only mom I knew to send me a family for a free photo session so I could get my feet wet in this gorgeous community. My friend is obviously incredibly intuitive as she sent me possibly THE sweetest Chelan grown couple I could ask for! […]
