Team "G"

Erin and Mark went with a football motif for their pregnancy.  Mark was the owner, Erin was the quarterback and the baby was the ball.  Pretty cool idea.  They even made shirts for themselves with their position on the back.  Anyway, I'm going with less words and more photos....

Meagan, Logan, & Malia

These guys represent my first set of maternity shots.  I was very thankful to have been asked to do them and I really enjoyed not only the photo shoot but also getting to know them as a couple and to meet beautiful Malia!  Obviously, we did 2 separate shoots and I just combined them into one large-ish post.

DeAnna & Jarin

DeAnna & Jarin had there wedding on 1/1/11.  Pretty cool, huh?  Cool?  Actually, it was  freezing cold.  Regardless, everyone made it a fantastic experience, (the outdoor heater was a life saver).  They have amazing friends and family that made the day so wonderful and very heart-felt.  The ceremony was very meaningful and had some absolutely wonderful moments that I will remember forever.  Thank you.

Colin portraits

I was fortunate to have been asked to do portraits for Colin as a Christmas gift to his parents.  He showed up with a few of his favorite items and we got to work in the studio.  Through the course of the photo shoot I was able to get to know Colin and we had fun working together in the studio.  He had some ideas of his own that we worked off of and it all made for a wonderful photo shoot.  The icing on the cake was learning how much his parents loved the photos.  That's what its all about.

Bryan & Lindsey

The first thing to mention about this wedding was the weather;  Steady rain all day.  But, that didn't dampen, (pun intended), anyone's spirits.  They just pulled out their umbrellas and made a great wedding day out of it.  They were right on the beach in Gig Harbor complete with campfires for s'mores in the evening.  Again, another down to earth couple who were a lot of fun to work with and be around.

Amanda and Ricky

These guys were a lot of fun to be around and to shoot.  And, Ricky was very much into the fisheye lens which was cool since it afforded me a bit more creative license.  They are a very down to earth and personable couple which made the day a pleasure to be a part of.

Helen & Jerry

I'm gonna just say it; Helen and Jerry are an inspiring and amazing couple.  This is their 50th wedding anniversary where they renewed their wedding vows.  They had a great ceremony which included a lot of moving stories from their early years together.  It really painted a picture of their personalities and their devotion to one another.  And, they had their original wedding rings, their original marriage certificate, and her wedding dress from 50 years ago, (which Helen hand made, by the way).  On a personal level, it really touched me and taught me a lot about commitment and marriage.  I was truly honored to share their glorious day.
