My three year old Luke recently pointed to a cherry tree and said it was like fireworks had gone off over night. I know what he means. I can’t remember a winter where my wool socks have been put through so much work to ward off the soggy days. So bring on the flower power. And lets get out there and Play!
The wind is still blowing, but now it’s starting to shower cherry blossoms, and instead of just rain we get sun showers. It’s been so great to get out there again, enjoying our beautiful parks and incredible early spring flower power. Here’s a little peak of this past weekends family shoots. Let’s go play again!
Valentine’s day. It’s a holiday that can be a historical let down, but if you want to inspire your man to bring home those roses, how about a tantalizing portrait of you? It may have been a while since you’ve had occasion to slip something pretty on and wear a little lipstick, but here is a gift for you both. Remind yourself how lovely you are, and share the love with your partner. These boudoir portraits can take place in your home, and I am happy to consult with you on hair, makeup, and what all you’d like to wear. It will be your little secret………
Catherine and Joe were so cool, you can tell by their easy smiles and awesomely comfortable wedding day checkered Vans. Catherine has a degree in Native American studies, so their ceremony included a special blanket ritual, which brought all the parents together along with the new couple, and an alder spit to roast the incredible salmon that was everyone’s dining delight. Yum by the way. We wanted to incorporate the country feel of Snohomish in the photos, so went off to McAuliffes Nursery to take advantage of their beautiful red barn and the rustic train tracks that live just across the street from there. Other fun photos props were the county’s Sheriff Posse Barn just down the road from the Bride’s house, where the ceremony and party took place. Her family is the owner of a wonderful wedding day rental company, so they had a really beautiful tent, but the day was really about enjoying their friends and having a great party. Hope Alaska is treating you both well, and thank you for introducing us to such a special view on a native ceremony.
