Patience | Seattle, WA Photography

I have been challenged-challenged to sit and wait for the shot.  It is easy to overshoot, right?  I want that perfect moment, the emotion behind the shot, the candid, the real, the MOMENT…  But in the meantime, I snap snap snap to get the in between.  I remember watching a little girl wiggle her tooth-I […]

Squirrels | Kirkland, WA Photographer

Have you ever come this close to a squirrel?  My dad played this game with squirrels when we were young and out camping.  He tied a peanut to a string and let it out about 50 feet then waited patiently for the squirrels to come.  Slowly the squirrel approached the bait and a game of […]

Missing Teeth | Bellevue, WA Photographer

I love when 6-9 year old (ish) kids smile-there is bound to be some missing teeth!  It is adorable (ok, not always but here it is!)  You can see that she is a little timid- but not for long.  Not only is she proud of those missing teeth, she is creatively wearing Mrs. Potato Head’s […]

Cuddles | Queen Creek, AZ Photographer

It is rare that this little boy sits still.  He has appeared several times in this place, mostly in the shape of weapons and activities!  : )  But when mommy wants to cuddle, he usually agrees.
