I’m so happy that I got to photograph the Peters family during their short stay in Washington. The October colors were showing off for us that day and the outfits they wore complimented everything so nicely. Their youngest didn’t want anything to do with me or my camera, so we just focused on playing and […]

I had a lot of fun photographing the Helser’s family portraits a few weeks ago. They have some gorgeous land out in a rural area of Shelton, that was the perfect location for their energetic boys and dogs to run around on. I love photographing families that are full of energy and have a good […]

It’s been so fun to watch this family grow over the years. The boys have gone from shy to confident and now have a beautiful baby sister in the mix. I always love shooting on people’s property when possible instead of a public place, and this was no exception. If you are looking for a […]

I have had the joy of photographing this family THREE times now (including their wedding four years ago) and I love it because they have the best style.

Tinaza Family / Bright Spring Maternity Portraits in Shelton, WA

I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful, rural setting for this fall family shoot. The Smith’s live on a large property with their family which gave us so many different natural settings to work with. Their color palette of denim and mustard yellow looked gorgeous against the apple orchards and rustic buildings on the […]
