Cydne & Dylan & baby to be

WOW! I just realized this has been sitting in my drafts and was never published... wow... Little Zoe is almost a year old now!!!

Cydne and I recently reconnected through facebook after having attended junior and senior high school together.  What an awesome thing facebook has been in making the world such a smaller place!  I have gotten to reconnect with so many people who I otherwise would have lost contact with until our next reunion at the earliest!

When I saw that Cydne was pregnant I was so overjoyed for her and was so joyful when she said she'd like to have maternity photographs taken!  Cydne is such a beautiful woman, her personality and smile energize me!

Dylan is absolutely adorable. Their nickname for him is Dyl pickle which I think is freakin awesome! I first met him at my Click or Treat event last October when his cutieness scored him a win in the costume contest. He is going to be a heartbreaker for sure!

At the time of this session little miss bun in the oven was still unnamed... they just couldn't come to a decision... I can't wait to hear how they did finally arrive at the name Zoe. And I sure hope to be able to photograph the little bundle of cuteness!

A glowing momma is one of the most beautiful things on the planet.  Thank you Cydne for allowing me to priveledge to photograph you and Dylan. 

 I won't hold it against you that you made my brain start thinking baby! ;)
(Maybe I will now... since I am 3.5 months preggo! Ü HAHA!)

Jessica is pregnant

Jessica was kind enough to be a model for a photography lighting day that was scheduled for my professional photography association.  Here are a few of my favorite images from our "play date".

A beautiful mama to be for sure!

LaShanda & Deon Wedding

LaShanda & Deon were married in February on a cold and snowy day... but they were brave souls and hopped outside for a quick few photographs to commemorate their union.

Their wedding day was absolutely beautiful and LaShanda's face radiated with her happiness!

It was so obvious that they people they chose as attendants were the ones who should definitely be there.  They were surrounded by love at every turn and also a lot of fun too!

The ceremony was beautiful and perfect!

When the ceremony was concluded we headed to The Varsity Grill in downtown Tacoma for their reception.  It was the first time I had ever been there and it was a beautiful venue for a reception.

After toasts and cake cutting LaShanda disappeared and surprised us all by changing her dress.  Shortly after doing so she and Deon participated in a dance off which was a very close competition... In fact, I believe it was officially declared a tie... however, I bet they'd each say they were the winner. ;)

Congratulations Deon & LaShanda! Welcome to the wedded world.  You make it a better place!

Shevia - Class of 2011

Shevia found me through her friend Layne whose senior portrait was posted on Facebook. It sure is amazing how Facebook connects people. Shevia had changed schools, but was still able to see her friend’s images online. She gave me a call and we were able to get her in under the wire to get her senior photo into the yearbook!

Shevia did a best of both session which means we spent an hour in the studio and then an hour outside at the location of her choice which had to include train tracks per mom’s request. Ü

We had a lot of fun in both locations!

Doesn't Shevia just have the most wonderful smile! Ü 

Congrats Shevia. If I recall your graduation is this Friday... have fun... enjoy this last summer to just be a "kid"... from here on out you will have so many adventures. Embrace them and make them your own.
