Olympia Spring Mini Sessions

It’s that time of year again! Twice a year I open SJP’s books for mini sessions! Once near Thanksgiving and once near Mother’s Day. I dreamt of a day these sessions would fill with previous clients I could continue to support as they’ve supported me before I ever made an announcement and that day is […]

Kayela, Austin, and Parker were my last nanny family (I worked with 4-5 families during my nannying days) before leaving the nanny world for photography! Parker and Jamie played several days a week and Jamie learned how to be gentle […]

Tess & Cameron | Olympia Engagement Photos

Before even seeing my sample galleries, Tess & Cameron were pretty certain they wanted their Olympia Engagement Photos at the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge! I first met Tess, Cameron, and baby Isolde at the 222 Market in Olympia, Washington. There’s this adorable Cafè known as “The Bread Peddler” inside that I LOVE meeting my potential couples in […]
