Golden Gardens Family Photos



Seven years as a Seattle area wedding and portrait photographer and I can’t believe this was my first time ever at Golden Gardens! I recognized areas from other photographers photos but this was my first time shooting here. Then, I found out less than two weeks later that I will be photographing a wedding at Golden Gardens at the end of the month. From “never shot here” to two back to back, I am excited to add this location to places I’m familiar with.

I love photographing new milestones for previous wedding clients. Maddie & John had the most beautiful forest mountain wedding at Wellspring Spa in Ashford, Wa. You can view their wedding blog post HERE!

It was probably the first absolutely gorgeous day of Spring 2022. We were so lucky to catch it! Maddie’s parents came along to help with baby J and get some grandparent portraits as well. Sweet baby J did so well! She slept for half the session allowing for a great variety of open and closed eye baby photos.

Maddie had brought some adorable little baby booties that we had a hard time keeping on her. A note to new parents and non-walking littles: it’s really hard to keep shoes on them at all my sessions! I’m happy we were able to get some photos in with the booties on, too! They’re just so darn cute even if not functional.

Welcome to the world baby girl and congratulations to Maddie and John! I loved watching them work together and each taking turns with photos. It’s clear Maddie, Joh, and Maddie’s parents are absolutely smitten.

Parenthood looks beautiful on you! Thank you for inviting me to document such a beautiful new chapter!

They’re all taking great care of me, too! Working my booty offf. Trying to eat healthy and navigate adulting more […]

The in between

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 […]

Nirvana & I think of you

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 […]

I hope you know better

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 […]
