It’s that time of year when the juniors are getting excited for their last hurrah at High School as seniors! I’m happy to announce that I’m serving Chelan, Pateros, Brewster, Omak, and Entiat seniors. My sessions are 20-30 minutes in a 30 minute radius of Chelan. Delivering around 30 edited photos in color and black […]

This early spring Lake Chelan surprise proposal was absolute perfection. The couple had never been to the Pacific Northwest and Andrew decided that Lake Chelan would be the picture perfect place to start.  Literally start in so many ways! Andrew contacted local Chelan wedding planner Ellie Haisch to help him plan a dream proposal to […]

There’s a reason I highly suggest to clients to do sunset photos. If you can push your kids to that golden hour time, you’ll get these photos that glow and are so serene. This shoot was in Germany along the Elbe River at high tide. Such a difference from this midday, low tide river shoot. […]

Out on the River Elbe in Hamburg, Germany they had extreme tides that expanded beaches and allowed for some silty mud flat play. This fun German family (who wildly had a connection to Lake Chelan through a high school exchange experience!?!) was all game for taking photos at low tide and high sun. None of […]

A fall styled wedding at Lake Chelan’s Siren Song Winery. The fall came in full force with misting Chelan rain, but we made the most of our cozy time! A huge shout out to the vendors that participated in this shoot. My lovely models were celebrating their one year anniversary and were so excited to […]

Our lovely friends were game to go on a boat date up lake to get some fish and chips and then oblige me to take their pictures as the sunset glowed across Lake Chelan. It was magical and intimate, and I definitely want to re-create this for couples this summer. You could even take a […]

This lovely family fell in love with Chelan and spent much of there time there at their second home while life slowed down in 2020. I was so excited that they wanted to do photos on top of the gorgeous Chelan Butte where you have a 360 vista of the lake, plains, and mountains.  { […]

2 years ago I had the honor of being booked by a sweet couple living in the Midwest for university to shoot their Chelan Rio Vista Winery wedding in the summer or 2021. We had no idea that the in between time would be so insane! Firstly, in February 2020 my little family of four […]

Rio Vista Winery Wedding

In mid January 2020 we were approached by my husband’s work with an opportunity to move to Germany as soon as we could for 6 months to a year. We jumped at the opportunity, sold most of our large belongings, stored the rest, parked the cars, and flew our lives to Hamburg, Germany by February […]

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.
