Brown Family Pictures

I met up with the Brown Family a couple weeks ago to do a family shoot for them. This was a really special shoot for them because Daddy is getting ready to leave for a year of training followed by a year of deployment. Kyri, the Mom, really wanted to get some family shots before he left. We met up at Tolmie State Park, which was an adventure in itself!!! The Browns got a little lost, I had no cell service at the park to help them, and we ended up getting started an hour late. However, after the rough start we had a great time!!! Here are just a few of my favorites...
This soldier just couldn't keep his lips away from his Lady:).
I think this one may be my favorite. I LOVE the genuine laughter:).

Thank you for such a fun shoot!!!!

Off to Alderbrook

A couple weeks ago I headed to the Alderbrook Resort with my Mom, Dad, and Sophia. One of my best friends was getting married there, but was just having a small wedding with family only. As guests at the Alderbrook, we just happen to be eating dinner while the ceremony was going on so we were able to spy a bit:). It was a fun, relaxing night. Sophia and I were able to swim a little bit, we had some GREAT food, and most importantly, I got to see my dear friend on her special day. Here are a couple pictures from my phone that we took at Alderbrook.

Congratulations Jessica and Jesse!

Bedtime Snuggles

While I was getting ready for bed last night I came out into the living room to find my husband and little Lady have some snuggle time before hittin' the hay. It was so cute because she was trying so hard to sit like a human:). That dog is so funny. I really do think that she thinks she is a human. She likes to sleep with her head on a pillow, covered up with a blanket. So funny. Sorry for the quality...I grabbed my phone off of the coffee table for a quick shot so that I could catch the moment.

Summer Time

One of the best parts of being a teacher is SUMMER TIME!!! Our last day of school was June 23rd. Every year Eddie Gentry, a P.E. teacher at NTHS, organizes a golf tournament for all of the teachers. He calls it the Ram Open, which I think is clever and cute:). It is always such a fun day. Even though Marie is a teacher at Chinook and not North Thurston, she has participated with us the last couple years. Here is a picture of us cheersing (if that is a word) to the last day of school at the Ram Open after party. I hope everyone enjoys their summer and has a great 4th of July today...HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!!!

My first wedding shoot...well second shooter:)

Last weekend I headed up to Mt. Vernon with my cousin Lindsey to help her shoot a wedding. This was my first time shooting a wedding. It was a great opprotunity for me to practice and see what it is like (thanks Linds). It was a LONG day, but my cousin and I had a great time. Below is a sampling of some of my pictures. I hope you enjoy...
