Six years old! Oh my gosh where has the time gone! Maddux you are kind, loving and so incredibly joyful. You made us parents and it has been an incredible adventure with you! I can hardly believe you’re about to start Kindergarten! This little birthday hat has been with him since his first birthday! Swipe to see :) We love you buddy!
Where it all began 12 years ago! (Swipe to see the rest!) Happy 12 years to the only person I want to do this crazy thing called life with! Steven you make our world go round and I love you to pieces! Thank you for 12 years of adventures, love and shenanigans. I feel incredibly lucky to have such a beautiful family with you and a business that makes every work day so much fun! Cheers to many many more! Also, Happy Anniversary to several of our couples who share the same anniversary! Including Kristina and Jay whose wedding were shooting today!
I’m such a sucker for a good #pikeplacemarket photo! But seriously, this day was jam packed with so much love, joy and FUN! And the most epic dance party with DJ Justin @ottomaticmm 👏🏻👏🏻One of my favorite things about Hillary was that she let me in and really shared with me about her wedding plans! Come the day of #willarywedding I felt SO a part of the day. We’re so lucky. We have the best couples. The most fun. The most trusting in us to rock their day!
Happy America day! #woodmarkhotel 📷 : @stevenlloydphotog
This beautiful place. It holds so many memories. My baby brother sent it to me today, on the 11th anniversary of my Dad’s passing. Growing up it was our family getaway. On our way to the cabin (in Skykomish near Steven’s Pass) we’d stop at the penny candy store and the library to stock up on books to read in front of the fire. I’d read for hours and hours. We’d walk up to the train tracks and put pennies on it. Then collect them and be so excited how flattened they were. After my Dad was diagnosed with ALS, when Steven and I started dating, I’d bring him up there to truly spend time together as a family. Cookouts and fires, game nights and nights sitting on the porch listening to the river rage. Throwing coins into the wishing well, riding quads, jumping into freezing water off the rope swing and snow snow snow. Steven and I fell in love at the cabin. We got married there on the front lawn! Our family had the best memories (and some of the hardest) there. It was my Dad’s favorite place. We miss you everyday Dad. And the butterflies have been in full effect lately, hovering around us and reminding us that you’re still with us always ❤️
On Father’s Day before you became a Dad, it wasn’t the easiest day for us, with both of our Dad’s passed away. But now that you’re a Father, we’ve come to enjoy the day celebrating you. Steven you’re such an incredibly hilarious, joy-filled and patient Dad. You’re always so present with the kids. They love you so so very much and I’m so grateful for you! Thank you for always putting up with our shenanigans (swipe to see the photo of him as Santa) and loving our family so very much. Happy Father’s Day Steven!
Shooting a wedding in Alaska has always been on my bucket list. And when Jaycie (a photographer herself) asked if I’d consider coming to Sitka, Alaska for her wedding I think I squealed with excitement! On Friday we flew in and explored this absolutely beautiful part of Southeast Alaska, and then photographed Jaycie and Ajay’s wedding the next day. We saw whales, bald eagles everywhere, jelly fish, sea otters and lions. It was a whirlwind trip and my heart is just so incredibly full thinking about how dang lucky we are to do what we do! That this sweet couple would fly us out and give us the opportunity to be a part of their wedding day. It was one for the books! Swipe to see more!
These two, and their sweet brother Cooper in heaven, made me a Mom. I know that Mother’s Day is really difficult for so many. Those who lost their Mom, those who yearn to become a Mom, those who have lost sweet babies and remember them so fiercely on this day. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t thank my lucky stars for these beautiful souls. They make my world go round. I get to be their Mom and they truly bring me so much laughter, exhaustion (seriously) and complete joy ❤️ Sending so much love to all the Moms, soon to be Moms and lost Moms today.
