Well, we are finally settled in after our cross country move and though it’s a bit dreary today, New England does not disappoint. It’s not just the lovely pastoral scenes that command you take note every time you turn around, it’s also the people.  This couple exuded so much joy in each other’s company, it’s […]

There aren’t many things I love more than sweet sibling relationships and lovely sun flare. Luckily this sunset family session at Discovery Park in Seattle had ample amounts of both. I met this family about three years ago when we were both relatively new to the Pacific Northwest and sending our kiddos to a French […]

Well, we made it! My tribe and I just settled in the little village of Chester in Vermont and I couldn’t be happier to be building my new life one day at a time on the East Coast. Though I won’t lie, a New England autumn would be nice right about now. It’s currently 87 […]

    Traci - Jackie! Thank you for these beautiful photos. You have an artistic eye and a gentle spirit that makes even the most introverted person shine. I’ve been looking at these for days and the most difficult part is trying to decide which ones to choose for prints. We are most definately waiting your return for our next photo shoot. Best to you and your lovely family. Hugs!ReplyCancel

This month has been filled with indecision, second guessing, and immense life change, but so much beauty and promise as well. We’re moving our humble abode to Vermont at the end of the month and expecting a new little one in December. It will be a fresh start for us on the East Coast and I’m […]

Babies are pretty much the best thing ever, but when babies are accompanied by incredible parents that are absolutely lovely human beings…well, I’m pretty sure I have the best job in the world. I met these two in the fall at their maternity session. They were so easy going and clearly excited to meet this […]

Everything about this time of year brings my happy out, but one of my favorite holiday traditions is seeing The Nutcracker Ballet. This tradition has become even more fulfilling since engrossing myself in dance photography.  I had the opportunity to photograph Evergreen City Ballet’s production and to sneak backstage for some “getting ready” photos as […]
