Chad and Ashton

As if I wasn't feeling old already.... I just turned the 3-0 a couple of weeks ago... now my younger brother is getting married this summer! A week ago I had another 'old' moment when I photographed Chad and Ashton's engagement session. I'm so happy for them... they are perfect for each other... I'm excited to finally have a sister after all these years. Congrats Ashton and Chad.

Camella and Stacy

Yesterday we had the honor of photographing Camella and Stacy in their favorite place. I loved hearing the stories and memories they have of Deception Pass State Park....specially the tree without limbs climbing story ;). We explored the whole park... rock climbing and everything.... I was lucky I didn't fall in the ocean on a couple of the set ups. Thanks Cam and Stac for sharing your special place with us, we hope to return!

This week is packed with engagement sessions. Spring is here and love is in the air! Meet Brandon and Megan, this if from their session that we did tonight. How about this awesome weather? ... more of this please! ;)

Mandi Class of '10

WOW! If you are one of my blog followers you already know that I love Kahlotus, but now I totally LOVE Kahlotus. Meet Mandi! A couple years ago I had the pleasure of photographing Lexi, her sister. Just when I didn’t think that I could possibly love Kahlotus more than I already had… Mandi’s mother called and told me they bought a old building in town. This building was a general store back in the day, complete with a soda pop counter. Also nails were left in the bins, dated beer still on the shelves, and old Kahlotus signs… for a photographer this was like PROP HEAVEN. When they first walked us through it I was on sensory over load. Not to mention an old apartment upstairs that had cool colors and that was half demoed. Actually we did this session last week and the funky green wall is no longer with us. Mandi you truly had a one of kind portrait session. Thanks for sharing this photographer’s dream with Jill and I.

But seriously dang you guys can jump high. A few weeks ago I got together with Stefanie and Nick to create some knock out graduation announcements.... and do some fun ones of them together... cause why not? ;) Seriously they always make me laugh so hard... they are all giggles.. I love it!

So this is a sample of the front of Nick's card. And the one below is a sample of the inside of Stefanie card.
Congrats you two... now you have to grow up and get a job ;)
