Lauren is a 2016 Steilacoom High School senior and she was joined by her family for her shoot. It’s always a great time to update the family portrait. Lauren is a division one soccer player and has signed to Evergreen to play next year. She is currently in her second year at Pierce for the Running Start program and will graduate with her associates degree. She plans on getting a business degree and growing the family candle company Erin Jane Illuminations, named after Lauren’s sister who passed away 9 years ago.
Maren is a 2016 Gig Harbor High School senior and she was such a trooper during our session. When we arrived at the park, there were hundreds of runners and fans there as well and everywhere we looked we felt in their way. We tried hard to find areas not being used and I think we did a good job of staying clear of the event. Then as the shoot progressed the rain came and we just kept going, hoping it would eventually stop for us and it did!
Maren is beautiful to look at, but she also has a kind and beautiful soul.
Pearl, the Weimaraner joined us for her chance in the spotlight and she was very happy about it. ha
As the rain came, we switched to a hat! Perfect solution!
Then the rain stopped and we could change and continue our shoot. Maren wants to be a nurse someday and is still deciding on the college she will attend.
I love this long grass we found!
What a fun time we had! Such a great session!
This time of year is always difficult with the rain, but we live in the northwest and it’s beautiful and it rains. The Abbe family was willing to change their plans of going to the park for fall colors to going to some downtown garages where we would be protected from all the rain drops. Right when we drove to our new spot the rain got a little lighter and we were able to actually get more than just being in the garage. I love the look of a wet roadway and the family ended up loving the new location!
I document a lot of families that have older kids, especially since I do so many of my senior’s families during their senior sessions. This family has younger kids than that, but they are still treated a little differently than those with much younger ones. I have fun coming up with different ways to show families together but still consider that they are a more mature family.
What a fun family and so great with the occasional rain drop!
Emerald and Dillon are getting married next October at Wine and Roses Country Estate. They wanted their engagement session in the fall to best represent their wedding day and we got a beautiful fall day! We weren’t sure, since the day before it was pouring and even the morning of this session, but as the day developed the sun came out and we had a gorgeous fall day!
These two are natural together and I loved getting to know them better. They love to laugh together and did plenty of that.
I love people in love and weddings in October, so looking forward to their day! I also haven’t been to Wine and Roses and I always love going somewhere new!
Rylee is a 2016 Wilson High School senior and the daughter of a high school friend that I graduated with at Wilson. Small world! Rylee is a waterpolo player and absolutely loves it! She plays for both school and club. Her dream school is UPS and she would like to study something in the science field.
We went back and forth on where to go for Rylee’s session and finally landed on Titlow Beach. It’s a place she goes often and has fond memories there, so it was perfect. We had a great time finding cool places to use and I really love this session!
Rylee’s little cousin joined us for a picture. She is adorable!
It was great hanging out with your family Rylee and seeing your dad again. Thanks for choosing me to be your senior photographer! I loved every minute of our session.
Madee is a Federal Way High School senior and she wanted to be surrounded by the fall colors before they were gone. This was kind of a crazy session with weather. It changed quickly on us, sun then clouds, then sun, then clouds until the sun never came back. The ground was soaked, it had been raining and the fall chill was in the air and it was an awesome session.
This is one of my favorites!
One of those sun moments. As soon as we would see the sun we would run and use it before it was gone again!
Madee really wanted a glitter pictures, so we got one and I loved how it turned out.
Sudden darkness for this one… it’s amazing the different light you can get in one session.
There’s that sun back! haha
Madee loves listening to music, spending time with family and friends and loves the ocean. She will be attending a 4 your college next year, but is still deciding all the details.
Whoop whoop! Senior year!
