and now for the 2012 LHP Street Team!!! first up, Melina! Melina is so beautiful + is a soon to be high school senior at Clover Park High School, here in the Tacoma surrounding area. Isaiah and I have had the priviledge of knowing Melina for a while- so we were thrilled when our team […]
I had the joy of recently, well, if January is recently, snapping some tender moments of my cousin Jessica with her sweet son Micah in Tacoma’s well known centrally located Wright Park. Normally, I would want my turn around time to be much quicker THEN this, but thankfully she’s my family and extended grace, and […]

Greg + Andrea are getting married this winter in Hawaii & I am so excited for them! They met while they were both working at the mall, one for T-Mobile and one for another cell phone provider. Greg said Andrea was the only young lady working in both of their locations so it was easy […]
While mom got some makeup done for her headshots, we played… naturally. Which really means, she ran in circles in our empty room AKA studio space… and I sat against a wall and watched– so so fun! She cried when she left! I take that as a sign that 1.) I’m still cool & […]
Its been a while since I’ve had to pick someone for a team. Do you remember those days- where your teacher let you be the one to pick the chooser for “Heads Up 7 Up” or being the person who gets to captain the team for kickball picking the strongest players to help you win […]
Aubreeana is SUCH a doll and was such a blast to shoot. A current high school senior Aubreeana represents to me all that I loved about high school; fashion, laughter, sports, dancing, friendship and cheerleading (can’t wait to show you A & Isaiah’s dance off)! When Aubreeana called me I was stoked to hear that […]
Its hard to believe that this is JUST a sample of the amazing session that I had with Jessica, but alas, it is. This girl is so beautiful it was almost impossible to decide what to blog and what not to. I ended up calling in back-up, aka: Isaiah and we made the hard decisions […]

Meet Lauren. She’s my new friend, a beautiful girl with a beautiful spirit signed with TCM. Lauren and I met about a year ago at a fashion show and then a mutal friend re-introduced us. We hung out one day and played around with my little camera composing dreams of things we hope to accomplish […]
This was such a special shoot + a special day because we were celebrating many things, but among them Davida’s birthday. Davida is a person of such strength and character and although I only spent a short time with her and her two very sweet kids–I was especially impressed with her patience and kind heart. […]
What happens when the thing you never thought would happen does? What happens when you unexpectedly get sick? What happens when someone you love falls ill or even worse dies? What happens when a natural disaster hits and destroys everything you've worked so hard to build? What happens when you become ill or paralyzed and are unable to run your business? What happens when you find yourself in a global pandemic and you're unable to work for months at a time? What are you going to do?
When we first started shooting, we couldn't afford many of the opportunities and workshops that were available for newbie photographers to learn and grow, so we really utilized the free communities online and locally to building relationships and to learn the trade. It was those years that shaped who we are as people in this industry and have helped us to value the journey.
