Olympia Portrait Photographer



Wow! I have to say this is my first time calling myself a Portrait Photographer. I’ve photographed in studio before but nothing like classic studio portraiture.

Yesterday, I made my way over to SJP Preferred vendor + one of my besties salon in Olympia to have my hair touched up! I’m back to the rose gold direction and feel so much more me again.

Bree’s the best creative color artist I’ve ever come across. If you want to try something crazy, she’s your woman! On the flip side, she’s my favorite person to refer more “natural” brides to for wedding hair and makeup. She’s wonderful with “nothing crazy, but more than my every day look that will last all night” brides. CONTACT HER/FIND OUT MORE HERE.

I have to give a shout out to the Justin & Mary Lighting Course. That course review blog post will be insane. It may be one of the last courses I review this year as I can’t even put words to it yet. I have been pushed FAR out of my comfort zone and it has been the best thing for me EVER. If you had stuck me in a pitch black room with an umbrella and a flash two years ago I would have laughed and told you this wasn’t a thing. hahaha aaah. Now, it may be one of my favorite shooting scenarios.

The best part? I know there is SO much room for improvement. And I LOVE THESE IMAGES! I knew there was room for so much more as I was shooting, and that’s why I had butterflies the entire time. I loved them. And I knew I could do even better with a different set up.

THANK YOU to Love Your Haiir Co. for my gorgeous hair, being the most amazing friend, and trusting me to try all the crazy camera things! ♥

Hi! How are you? Thinking of lots of my clients lately and hoping you’re doing well no matter where life has taken you! I’ve been laying low. Loving on my kiddos, friends, sisters, and partners. 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 […]
