Well just when you think you have finally taken your last picture of a 2016 senior you get a text message from a mom who wants to do an end of the year session on top of the one we shot at the beginning of the year! Needless to say I am glad I had the opportunity to work with Lizzy and Irene again as we got some really awesome stuff! We also got to shoot in Downtown Poulsbo, which in my three years here in Poulsbo have never had the chance to shoot down there with a senior. Chasing the remaining sun (and trying to fit in as many outfits as we could) we ended our session at an awesome location I love up close by where I live. The shots turned out amazing, but I will let you all be the judge of that!!

Right from the beginning of talking wedding plans with Jayme and Mike I knew it was going to be great. The Seahawks had recently lost to the Patriots in the Super Bowl on a play that left many people stumped as to why they didn't use a little beast mode. Come to find out Jayme was from the New England area and her family are all Patriots fans. If you know Mike you know he is a graduate of WSU, so its safe to say that his family are Seahawks fans. Fast forward to the day of their wedding and a few 100000000 deflated jokes and these two were awesome. From the pink socks and 90s shades, to the wonderful rendition of Still Of the Night performed by none other than Mike and his college buddy this weeding was awesome!
Well this year has been many first. One of which was getting a website. With the website I was hoping to get a farther reach and I accomplished that as Jessica was the first person to contact me about photographing her wedding. Before the wedding we agreed on meeting up for an engagement session. This way we could meet and get to know each other before the big day because for me building that relationship before hand is very important. We set a date and location and met at this little park in Gig Harbor. I have lived in Washington for 13 years and this was the first time I had ever been in Gig Harbor. It was absolutely beautiful and I highly recommend it to everyone! Now on to the pictures!
A few months ago I set out to find some 2016 senior reps for North Kitsap High School. Through a mutual friend I was introduced to Lizzy and Sage. They are both competitive cheerleaders and love horses. Naturally when discussing what they were looking for in their pictures the thought of having a horse in the session was a must. Additionally, they wanted a beach location and the only beach in all of Kitsap County that is actually sand and not rocks was Point No Point in Hansville, Washington.
These two were a ton of fun and super easy to work with! With the help of my good friend Tim of Klip Studios we were able to get some really awesome stuff! Please show them some love by leaving comments!
Also if you are interested in booking your 2016 Senior session now is the time! I am currently booked through August, so don't wait any longer to give us a jingle or drop us an email!

A few weeks ago I was contacted by a friend of mine who is currently deployed to Japan. His wife, who is back here in Washington was approaching her due date with their first child and was looking for some maternity pictures. After some discussion with Jennifer, we finally settled on my old stomping grounds during my time in the navy and had a nice session at Fort Casey. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Fort Casey, it is one of three forts near the entrance of the Puget Sound known as the Triangle of Fire. The reason for the forts was to keep the enemy out of the Puget Sound yet none of them ever saw battle.
Now as for the pictures we got really lucky to have such a beautiful day out for some seriously beautiful pictures! Jennifer was a trooper by going into the frigid cold waters of the Pacific Northwest, and also trekking up the hills into the fort, but I think we were able to capture everything she was looking for! Please show her some love!
