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. […]

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.  { […]

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.

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,

Fall wedding at Rio Vista Winery

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! Ha!) It was a summer destination full of laughs, water adventures, and good food. It’s amazing getting to live in Chelan, […]

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 […]

Chelan Extended Family Orchard Photoshoot

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! […]

I’m so excited to kick off the 2019 wedding season with this gorgeous Lake Chelan engagement session! Even though the orchards and vineyards are still bare, we took advantage of the amazing lakeside and mountaintop scenery that the area has to offer. You really can’t find a “bad location” over here friends, I love our […]
