Angela is one of the sweetest and most hardworking people I have met.  I’ve gotten the chance to work with her over the past few years and recommend her with the highest accolades.  Recently, she asked me to take some family photos for her, and here they are!   What an honor and a delight!  Angela just had her second daughter (she’s only 2 months old!) and her older daughter should probably become a child model because her expressions are phenomenal!  Thanks for the opportunity Angela.  And for those of you in need of a great real estate agent, please visit her website and contact her.

A huge thanks to Angela and family for such a fun time!



For any of you living in the Pacific Northwest, man, what an amazing summer this has been, right?!  Beautiful sunshine filled days just ready to be filled with fun.  This summer made me think back to my own summers as a boy growing up in Bellingham.  My brothers and I used to ride our bikes all over the neighborhood, build forts in the forest behind our house, climb trees to survey “our land,” and even battle armies with our Army men.  Can’t say I did all that this summer, but close 😉

Recently, I had the chance to work the Schoembs’ family.  What struck me most (other than the fact that they are so amazingly photogenic!) was the affection between their kids.  It was so fun to see them relax in front of the camera and just settle into their own world of playing and chatting.  There really is something so special about making these summertime memories together as siblings.

Remember this, that very little is needed to make a happy life.

Live in wonder.

Because when you stop and look around, this life is pretty amazing.

I love the following picture. Live in wonder. Henry was looking through the cracks, at the water below the dock. Winston’s curiousity  got the better of him, and he wanted to look, too! It was as if they discovered their own secret world, and they were immersed in the moment – watching the water crash into the shore.

Thank you Chris and Robin, for being such caring, kind, and thoughtful friends to Jasmine & me.  We look forward to spending more time with your wonderful family, and to watch the boys grow up as they embark on their journeys.


Taking a photograph of somebody can be as simple as clicking a button, or if you want it to be, a much more fulfilling and rewarding experience. For me, the allure of photography has always been about the process – creating & building a relationship with the people and places I shoot, and using my camera to convey emotions.

The photographs of this beautiful family may have been taken in one session, but, they are the result of two years of friendship-building 🙂  Our first photo session was on the beach, where the girls had so much fun playing in the sand, and our second session was to celebrate their newest daughter, Espy. Since then, Espy has started walking and I had the honor to photograph this happy, loving family one more time.

On Sunday, Jasmine and I were looking through pictures on my computer, and when I saw their family photo, I immediately said, “awww, I love this family…” and it was at that very moment that I was reminded how much photography means to me.

I hope these photos provide a glimpse into the love this family shares with each other.
