Polyamory

Life has been very romantic lately. Unknown and confusing and both flighty and grounded all at once. I remember being 14 and seeing my entire life by your side. Life is wild. I remember a water bottle and abandoned bleachers. I remember axe body spray and the way I had never been kissed. I know […]

I hope you know better than to think I’d want to be anywhere but here right now. It was true on NYE and it’s true right now in my car outside the café. This may have felt seamless. Too seamless. Happenstance. But I’m here on purpose, now. I see your soft heart and I see […]

You’ll walk through a glittering white veil, uncharacteristically soft compared to what you’ll find behind it. It has no need to keep you out. You quickly realize it’s the aura within that turns most around. The texture disorients. I’ll already be inside. What do you see? Upon first impression, you’re in a desert. Interesting considering […]

Closing my eyes, covered in sweat, my focus shifts center then up. She looks over her shoulder at me in forest green velvet so dark it’s almost black. An encouraging but sly smile projecting to me. It’s time. Buy the ticket. Schedule the Uber. Get on the plane. Get the sister hug. Buy the car. […]

“The cream is bitter!” Jamie said trying the not-to-sweet perfectly made whip cream from Zola’s on our morning date. Just yesterday. This morning, I ordered a triple shot white coffee, half pumpkin half white chocolate, oatmilk latte from another shop. Bitter Coffee. They don’t dump the first round of shots and that’s something I know […]

I’m hopeful and reminiscing. In his childhood bedroom. By the white noise of a generic white fan. Kissed only by natural light and surrounded by our children’s toys. With Trader Joe’s Quiches and Mango Pompelini. I remember the day I snuck up alone. 13 years old, I found his wallet by his bed. I cautiously […]

What a great time to be posting these Tacoma Family Photos at Titlow Park! I currently have TWO more mini sessions available for December 2, 2023 in Auburn, Washington. These are most commonly used for family photos but can be used as a mini engagment session, mini senior session, anniversary photos, or just about anything […]

5:20am. “Wake up beautiful yoga baby” My morning alarm reads. What if everything you ever wanted in life was riding on this? Health, happiness, wealth, joy, aspirations, ability to love in the healthiest ways, and confidence rode on just one or two things you already suspect to be the key? For me, it’s always been […]

These Point Defiance Maternity photos are among my favorites! I first worked with Travis and Marie on professional headshots for Travis’ accounting/book keeping company. We photographed those at The Union Club Tacoma where The Studio had our first Gallery Viewing! This is a gorgeous coworking space I would recommend. I had a desk there for […]
