A windy beach sunset was the backdrop for my maternity shoot with these lovely humans, and I couldn't be happier about how our evening went.
I must say that I loooooove getting to work with this family! They're always open to exploring new places, trying new things, and getting out in the open. Fort Worden was just a tiiiiiiiiny bit windy for our shoot, but we decided to work with the elements (I mean, who doesn't love the wispy, sexy natural wind-blown hair look?!) and we ended up with some beautiful images that I just can't stop looking at!
The photo below was something I hoped we could get during our shoot so I'm stoked we could make it work..we did this same pose for their first maternity shoot when the lil' man walking was the one being celebrated in momma's belly. So stinkin' cute!
She is such a sweet little munchkin!!
Little miss Hadley it was wonderful getting to spend part of my day capturing you as a freshly one-year old lil' sassafrass cutie pie!!!.
That lil' face! That big bow!!!
Like, I can't even.
The fierceness and beauty that this woman exudes is ridiculous.
These two are so precious to my heart. Ketreona is an amazing mother, and Harmon has been such a special little girl that I've been lucky enough to watch grow. I will cook you dinner and take your pictures any day boo 😘
Talk About Epic.
It was a magical weekend celebrating these two!
Ridiculously beautiful backdrop? Check.
Super cool bride with a wedding day mentality of 'just go with the flow'? Check.
Amazing group of family and friends that know how to party? CHECK.
Conditions were ripe for an unforgettable day, and I'm just glad I could be there to witness and document all of the awesomeness that ensued!

Here's to Mr. & Mrs. Dols!!!
Fun with Yoga Poses at Discovery Park
I met this beautiful gem of a human during a silent meditation retreat in Mexico and I am beyond grateful that our paths have crossed. We recently spent a GORGEOUS evening at one of my favorite places. There was lots of laughs, beautiful scenery, and playing around with capturing some of her amazing yoga moves. Keep spreading the love and light you're filled with Yeji! ❤️
It's Mother's Day, and what better way to commemorate this day than with a recent maternity shoot with one of the most amazing, loving mother's I know?! How she does it all, I will never understand. I admire her tenacity, her compassion, and her absolutely pure, undying love for her daughters and her family.
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL THE MOMMA'S OUT THERE!!! ❤️
Just wanted to spread some of the extra love I got to experience yesterday with these two beautiful ladies! Wishing EVERYONE a day of LOVE...today and everyday!
These humans are the best
I'm so honored to be in this family's life; full of love, fun and laughter, it's always a joy shooting with them...as you can see they love trying different things, and are always entertaining ;)
Keep it zen, my friends ✌🏽
She is absolutely stunning.
I kept finding myself saying this while I went through the images from our shoot...Just shaking my head in disbelief at her ability to be that beautiful. A big part of her beauty comes from within; she is one of the most genuine, lovable people I know.
Here is a look into our day...through these intimate portraits, I see her grace, love and beauty shine through. Here's to the Kaarvand's and the wonderful new addition to the family, expected in just over a month (although she thinks he's going to take after big brother Logan and make an unexpected early appearance)!!
:: Mother & Son ::
I didn't realize at the time how ridiculously adorable these two are. Seriously. They look like BFF's and it's almost too much to handle.
One thing that I have learned is to SHOOT AWAY when a kiddo is excited about taking pictures... We weren't quite ready for him, but Logan was in a super-photoegenic mood (lasting for about 5 minutes) so I got the snapping 😜
These two seem to understand that friendship and fun are two key characteristics of a successful relationship...Good stories and laughter were prominent on our day together, which is one of the many reasons I love getting to spend time with these two! Can't wait for the wedding in Chelan!! 💜
Dogs + Sand = ❤️
